"Great experience of Colonoscopy"

About: Leeds General Infirmary

Was treated with upmost respect and dignity at my outpatient colonoscopy. I felt everyone was lovely, I was talked through the procedure and afterwards everyone was incredibly lovely and I munched on my biscuits and tea happily before leaving.

Only complaint is the long wait for an appointment, and my initial appointment with a colorectal surgeon was cancelled for me to directly be referred for a colonoscopy, I would've preferred to talk through my options first.

My experience was great.
