"Comfortable and caring experience of colonoscopy"

About: Good Hope Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

The Doctor and nursing staff in the treatment room at Good Hope Hospital were superb while I was having my colonoscopy. They made me feel really comfortable and at ease. It was amazing to watch it on the monitor.

I opted for the gas and air and I only used it a couple of Times. (Wonder Woman) lol. Then I was taken into the recovery room and again was treated well and given a cup of tea and biscuits.

Thankyou all so much x
