    Dr Lo Giudice is overall a very knowledgeable Doctor. In my personal experience on the day, I suggest he could assist his patients feel more at ease when they may be in a vulnerable preoccupied position, by explaining more carefully on what he intends to do and why, prior to undertaking exams, particularly when there are to be additional associated costs with any further not planned investigation; It is paramount to ask patients if they agree to this first. A better dialogue between Dr and patient, Dr and reception and reception and patient would be appreciated also.
