I have attended there as I have developed something of a cyst or abscess on my neck. Being in any hospital is something none of us want to deal with;but, good staff, that, including; nurses, doctors and... more catering can make a huge difference. I was under Dr Lenon and let me tell you him, and the accompanied staff of surgeons was beyond imagination; that meaning, their attitude politeness and care were the highest quality. I cant thank them enough. Nurses were so compassionate and talkative. Some of them have amazing education and talent, huge respect to them. Last but not least the catering staff was what made my stay all the better. Jesus, I am in awe never been treated with so much care and compassion. Unlikely chances they will see this, none the less I wish to say to everyone,
Thank you very much. I only wish I can repay with similar kindness to others.
