"Excellent service at Breast Clinic!"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

Unexpectedly had a seamless service regarding a breast lump investigation. Thought I might just get a mammogram and have to wait for results some weeks later but saw the consultant. Was then sent for a mammogram and ultrasound. Upon having the ultrasound the lump which turned out to be a cyst was removed then and there with a local anaesthetic. They also took a biopsy because of some suspect matter.

I just wanted to praise these two doctors and their nurses and receptionists who were all very helpful and polite and kept me fully informed for the excellent service I received. Hopefully the outcome will be a good one when I return for my follow up in a few weeks.
