    After my first appointment I felt that my expectations were too high. Dr Harrison was calm and methodical and went through my condition and symptoms and we discussed the way forward and what my options where. Fortunately my second appointment was to obtain some results which were very good so all the information was received in detail. Options going forward were discussed and my many questions where answered clearly and concisely. .

    From the outset, there was an approach of looking to help me and find what was causing my condition and to establish a means to remedy. All elements of my condition were clearly explained and options fully review, so that when I needed to make a decision, I felt I was well informed. The procedure was successful and I am recovering well. Throughout the whole process, Dr Harrison made me feel at ease.
