"exellent appointment"

About: Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital

Anything else?

I had an appointment to see a consultant for knee problems

on arrival I had to check in at the reception desk, the receptionist

made you feel at home right away, she was very cheerful which

I felt was a good start, I was then greated by one of the nurses

that was involved with the consultant (also very chirpy) she told me

that X-rays were required and guided me in the right direction.

I was seen withun five minutes (great service) and went back to waiting room,

Within another 5 minutes, I was called in to see the consultant,

I was made to feel at ease and was examined, the consult also gave reasons

for the checks and explaining what was going to happen when I get to have

some keyhole surgery..... very impressed with the outcome of my appointment.

Thankyou all at the Queen Vic.....
