“The whole experience with Dr Koa-Wing has been brilliant and very reassuring -I'm so glad I booked the appointment! I felt at ease right from the start of the initial consultation, where he explained what the problem was most likely to be, and was very well looked after throughout the various tests. He was very patient and understanding while I asked plenty of questions, and was able to answer everything and help me decide on the best course of action. “
