"ultrasound scan. 5 out of 5 stars"

About: Derriford Hospital / General surgery Tamar Referral & Appointments Centre

(as the patient),

I was very pleased having firstly seen my GP for a referral for an ultrasound scan, to then having the scan only a matter of weeks shortly afterwards.

When it came to my ultrasound scan and general hospital attendance day I was very impressed with the hospital staff, with their efficiency and their friendly welcoming manner. I was made aware of my condition internally via the physician from the on screen display of the scan. He was very calming and reassuring. 5 out of 5 stars.
