"I couldn't have asked for better treatment for my colonoscopy"

About: East Surrey Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was very anxious about having this procedure done but I really needn't have been. All the nurses and doctors were understanding and very caring. The procedure carried out by Dr Ioannis Theodoropoulos was virtually pain free, and it was all over in about 20 minutes. I couldn't have asked for better treatment! An amazing team and will definitely not be worried to have this procedure done again in the future if the need arises. The after care in the recovery suite was brilliant too, everyone was friendly and I had a lovely cup of coffee and some nice biscuits. A big thank you to you all! !

Thank you for your nice comments about your recent Colonoscopy at East Surrey Hospital. It's good to read that you felt so well looked after and cared about.

I have already shared your post with Dr Theodoropoulos who I'm sure will be delighted to read your comments as will the rest of the team.

Good to read that you also enjoyed the coffee and biscuits

Kind regards
