Dr Patel’s manner was at all times considerate

Dr Patel met us today to give us the results of lab analysis of samples taken during the colonic cancer surgery that he carried out two weeks ago on my wife. He was careful to explain everything that had happened and what they found in the analysis. A total of 52 lymph nodes were examined and no sign of cancer was found. This meant no chemotherapy but Dr Patel explained the follow-up monitoring procedure that the unit operates as standard. Because of this we were finally able to relax in the knowledge that the correct procedure had been carried out in the correct way. Dr Patel’s manner was at all times considerate and he listened carefully to any questions that I or my wife asked – and he answered the questions equally carefully. We are both very pleased with the treatment my wife received and have full confidence in the unit.
