Patient Testimonial
"I have just had my final check with Mr Viswanath. I am writing to let you know how wonderful your staff have been during my treatment. From the ladies on the reception desk to my MRI, gastroscopy and pre and post op care. I have been well looked after and treated with respect. I have also appreciated the time taken to explain my treatment and the results. Mr Viswanath even showed me photograph results. I very much appreciate the care I have received and thank you and your staff." August 2019
