    Explanation (5/5)
    I have suffered from recurrent UTIs for about 2 years and didn’t like the idea of long term antibiotics. I was thoroughly assessed and a management plan was made that was clear and easy to follow. I have not had any problems since and for that reason, I would wholeheartedly recommend.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Mr Arumuham recently treated my stones with laser surgery. I have suffered with stones for 10years and sought out a second opinion. I had a “metabolic screen” which found the cause of my stones and I have started treatment. Could not be happier with my care.
