"100% first class"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I was incredibly nervous as this procedure, colonoscopy, is one I have always squirmed and been afraid of. The staff immediately recognised my high anxiety and were absolutely superb ensuring that everything occurred quickly giving me less time to think! ! I can hardly believe how they recognised my anxiety so quickly. The staff and service has to be praised from entering the doors to after the procedure. 100% first class.
