"Excellent doctors"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I suffer many different ailments, but most of them are to do with orthopaedics.

My surgeon, Mr Hendrix has to be applauded, he is second to none, always has a smile for you, treats you as a human being, not just another number, also, sits and explains to you whats happened/going to happen.

I have had a few Ortho doctors, the other being Mr Harris, whom I've only met a few times after he had the very difficult job of putting my ankle back together again with pins and plates, and he is so nice too.

Hats off to you both for the excellent care and advice to myself.

Also, must be said too that the theatre staff are amazing too.

Thanks for your posting, its really great to hear the positives as well as what we can do better.

I will pass your posting on to both Consultants and the theatre staff who I know will be delighted to get your feedback.

I hope you feeling well and are on the mend.
