“Very clear in terms of explaining both the process and the conditions, as well as next steps in relation to both. Particularly impressed by the 'wrap around' support of the administrator working to the Doctor - Denise - who was very responsive (despite the challenges of Covid/timing around Christmas) and flexible, organising a series of tests in 2-3 hours saving time through multiple visits. “

    Dr Wasan and his team (Dr Nick and Denise Rainsbury) were very professional in their care of me. I found the communication excellent, clear, concise and forthcoming. The appointment management between different locations was great and they made sure all appointments were suitable for me and my work commitments. Dr Wasan explained what every part of my treatment was and he explored all avenues in my diagnosis to ensure all eventualities were covered. Thanks very much for your care - very calming in a potentially tense situation.
