I visited my GP with a small skin problem on my back and he referred me to MMH Dermatology Dept. I was given an appointment within 1 week.
I was seen by Dr Halpern who quickly diagnosed the problem, he then did a quick upper body check on me and noticed a dark mole on my lower chest area and upon investigating said that it should be removed asap,
This procedure was carried out within 3 weeks and the biopsy proved it was cancerous! I have just had more of the affected area excised recently to ensure it was all removed. So if it wasn't for the fact the Doctor was very diligent and professional my body could by now be riddled with cancer. So I have nothing but praise for this department at MMH.
