"My father's diagnosis and treatment of melanoma in..."

About: Torbay Hospital

My family cannot speak highly enough of the dermatology team and the consultant in particular. Their referral for a worrying skin lesion was dealt with within 10 days and first surgery three weeks later on a Sunday. Results of the op came very quickly and MDT recommendation of a second surgery to be on the safe side and said surgery completed, equally quickly. We learned today that Dad is clear of skin cancer and want to sincerely thank this department for the kind, professional and excellent way in which my 85 year old father has been treated.
