"A wonderful clinical support in the day..."

I had two procedures, recently, for skin cancer.
The consultants and the nurses supporting them were cheerful and professional in their conduct.
The procedures were unpleasant, yet the members of staff attending to me were calm and empathetic.
The first procedure was - excision on 11 January 16 and the second one - mohs' micrographic surgery on 8th Feb. 16.
I felt involved in the process and had a complete trust in the surgeons who treated me.
A follow up of checks up and taking out the stitches was done sensitively and with much humanity and respect as I told the nurses that I was in pain.
A Dr and a specialized nurse reviewed my wound and advised on a follow up treatment.
It is pretty upsetting to fine oneself with 'wonky' face after the operations.
However, I feel I'll be OK as I'm supported by experts who are exceedingly supportive.
