“Dr Irving was very understanding and empathetic and took the time to answer all my questions and did not make me feel like we had to rush the conversation. He laid out a clear set of follow on actions and has followed through with these very quickly. His mannerism made me feel comfortable and safe and I felt that I was in the care of very capable hands. “
