"Wonderful Service"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

I would like to convey my sincere thanks to all the staff and surgeon involved in my tooth extractions on the 1 st September. The whole experience was so painless and smooth it exceeded anything I could have hoped for. I was was quite nervous having had two previous tooth extractions at my local dentist which left me feeling scared, sore and traumatised - no detriment to them, just the procedure and being aware of it all (probably being tense and wriggling contributed to the soreness). I was consequently referred to the hospital for the remaining four extractions, and I supposed it would be at least a little unpleasant despite undergoing general anesthetic. Firstly, the whole procedure was so efficient and I didn't have to wait any length of time. The staff were very kind and put me at ease. When I awoke from the anesthetic I could not believe that the extraction had already taken place as I had absolutely no pain. My medications had been prepared for me when I was taken back to the ward and before long I was out. So far no bruising or swelling and the stitches make the gaps feel less ghastly. I am truly impressed. Thank you!
