  • I chose the doctor based on her professional expertise, but her thoroughness and attention to detail surpassed my expectations. I was perfectly satisfied with her and also her assistant. With 'perfect' being the operative word.

  • It's possible that I met the kindest doctor in my life. I had never experienced such attention, empathy and care. I wasn't able to book an appointment, it wasn't visible in the system, but the ladies at reception did everything they could to find me one, and reassured me that everything would be fine. If a doctor or clinic are so attentive and thorough, then you are halfway to recovery already. And I say that completely seriously. Thank you!
