    I am really glad that I found Mr. Bhan, thanks to a referral from a work colleague. I needed an urgent appointment and Yvonne has been accommodating and helped me arrange to see Mr. Bhan within the next hour from the time I called. My consultation with Mr. Bhan was a pleasant experience, I felt really at ease and my concerns being prioritised. I had all my investigations done within the afternoon, he even escorted me to the next department, and Mr. Bhan updated me and reassured me in the evening regarding my results through a call, with all correspondence sent to me and my GP the next day. I felt very well looked after and felt his sincerity to help me during the whole experience. Thank you Mr Bhan and Yvonne. I recommend Mr. Bhan with 5+ stars.
