    I found Dr Rai sympathetic and attentive and knowledgeable and I trusted her judgement. I would have liked a bit more space and time as both our appointments felt rushed. And would've liked it if Dr Rai had seemed ready to listen to me a bit more so we could've discussed the process together.

    We choose Dr Rai as the hospital was close to home and on the private medical company's panel. Making appointments was easy and the choice of times/venues made things easy for us. All appointments went well and we could ask any question as often as we needed. Things were explained in a way we understood and timescales for recovery clearly covered. Would happily use Dr Rai again should the need arise
