“Ms Marina Fernando is a fantastic consultant. She was equal measures empathetic and professional. I felt heard, was given space to digest and to ask questions. Every test and procedure was fully explained. I especially appreciated that all treatment options were described and discussed with me, feeling like the course taken was chosen in collaboration.“
