"Outstanding Hospital"

About: Sidmouth Hospital

I had my carpal tunnel surgery done in the Sidmouth hospital in December. The hospital has an outstanding staff, very professional and I would definitely recommend it to everyone. I am very pleased with the results. I have almost no scar left due to such an excellent job done by the surgeon. Thank you very much for this fantastic hospital.
