"Prostate biopsy"

About: Dorset County Hospital

Anything else?

I was obviously very nervous and apprehensive in having this done - read too much on the internet! i should not have worried as the consultant and the nurse specialist were fantastic in trying to put me at ease before and during the biopsy. It was not very pleasant but made bearable by the excellent service given by these two professionals at this hospital. in two minds about using Dorchester or Exeter as both come under my area. In future i will absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in choosing this excellent hospital and staff! Thankyou guys for your care and understanding in explaining the procedure and results to my partner and myself.
