"Thanks to the consultant and her paediatric clinic"

About: Southampton General Hospital

Anything else?

I didn't realize that my son has been under care of this consultant's clinic for 10 years until last Friday last appointmen with the consultant. My son was admitted to hospital several times because of repeated high temperature and swollen lymph nodes when he was 5 - 6 and diagnosed Kikuchi's disease by her. We don't know how to express our appreication. Just write this short note. Many Thanks to the consultant and her clinic for reviwing my son every year and taking my worries away. She is a really nice doctor. I was every much impressed with her experience and clear judgement. Finally, I would like to thank the children department for the excellent management (keep appointment time and the same consultant very well). We were very happy to see the same consultant every time in the last 10 years. While by contrast, my adut clinic was not well organised. I saw different consultants or doctors almost every time for the last 11 years and appointment time was often updated.
