“Froom our first consultation, Dr Sporton was able to describe my condition in simple, clear terms. His demeanour was excellent as he took me through all the questions I had with patience and understanding. Fast forward to the surgery, once again he was a calming and reassuringly confident practitioner and made the procedure a relative breeze to experience. Follow up was as expected, painless and simple, and thankfully fuss free. Thank you Dr Sporton for taking such great care for me.“
