"My colonoscopy procedure"

About: Aberdeen Royal Infirmary / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I had an colonoscopy procedure done today 13th March 2015. I just wanted to say that the staff, from the Professor who carried out the procedure to the nurses who attended to me before during and after were very professional, caring and friendly, they made me feel relaxed and safe so I have nothing but praise for all of them .... Many thanks

Thank you, also if anyone reading this is going for this procedure soon or an endoscopy please be assured that it is not a procedure to be afraid of as, with a gentle sedative, you will be relaxed and it will be over before you know it and caring and friendly staff are with you every step of the way
