"Thank you for my colonoscopy without discomfort"

About: Northern General Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I want to say a big thankyou to all the staff on the endoscopy suite, they were all very friendly and put my mind at ease.

I was very nervous about having this procedure but knew I had no choice. I had to have it because my father died very young of Bowel Cancer.

Dr Donelly was the endoscopist and very skilled at that because there wasn't much discomfort at all. My test was clear so I am very pleased about that too. The nurses that were working with Dr Donelly relaxed me and talked to me and eased my nerves so much.

Thankyou so much once again to all of you :-)
