“Pregnancy was terrifying for me, because I never knew what to expect. Dr Digesu was recommended to me by a friend, and I am so grateful for that. His office at 25 Harley Street is beautiful and clean, and the staff are all super sweet and highly professional. Dr Digesu offered the best prenatal care throughout my entire pregnancy. Delivery went very smoothly even though it resulted in a C-Section, but that's ok because my scar is so tiny and barely noticeable. Thank you Dr Digesu and staff! Can't wait to come back when I decide to have another little one.“
