About: Southend Hospital

What I liked

The Surgeon that I saw took the time to tell me what was happening, most importantly he was very open and truthful about my condition.

Although the advice he gave was not what I expected, it was rational and readily accepted by me to be the best option in 'my basket'. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Well done 'DOC' you deserve an award for you whole demeanour.

Thanks for taking the time for treating like human being.


What could be improved

Nothing. It went really smoothly with a satisfactory outcome.
