    Consulted with Heather to discuss treatment options for PC and gain some assurance and advice on the decision she helped me make. To go forward to a procedure without any doubt that it is the right one is mentally invaluable and what ever the outcome there will be no regrets. Heather was , of course, highly knowledgeable but also so very open and easy to talk to- more like picking a pals brains over a pint in the pub! For those of us of a certain age with grim memories of distant, cold consultants Heather was a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend her for the assurance and comfort she gives whatever your decision.

    She is very reassuring and explained the merits and demerits of the available treatments. She involved me in the process of discussion and making final decision regarding treatment. She is very pleasant and made me feel as a friend. I appreciate her good communication skills and depth knowledge.
