    Dr Persey put me at ease straight away and was very helpful both in diagnosing the issue and in suggesting managing the problem. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and I left feeling much more comforted than I had done from my GP appointment. Although there wasn't anything he could 'do' about the issue, he was very helpful and made it clear that I could come back at any time if my symptoms worsened or just if I had concerns.

    Extremely easy consultation. Dr Persey quickly identified the problem and took time to explain the issue and the possible solution. From a Covid point of view ( which of course matters in these strange time) it felt safe. The hospital took every precaution on entering and both Dr Persey and I wore a mask during our discussion. I would have no hesitation in recommending
