"I was made to feel special"

About: William Harvey Hospital / Maxillo-Facial surgery

(as the patient),

I would like to say a very big thank you for the attention I was given by Dr Lewis, Mr Hendy's registrar in Maxillo Facial. He excised a lump on my head in Ashford Hospital and today removed the stitches.

This is the second time I have had reason to visit Maxillo Facial, the previous time a few years ago I had the privilege to have Mr Goodger as my consultant and I cannot speak too highly of the care and attention he gave me. He is very special.

Today Dr Lewis removed stitches from my neck and staples from my head and whilst I know he has operated on hundreds of patients, I was made to feel special so if he ever gets the urge to adopt a granny would you please add me to the list.
