"Rheumatology - caring and thorough"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

I was refered to the rheumatologist at DRI. My appointment came through very promptly even with Xmas and New Year holidays. I cannot praise the nurses enough for their kindness and the Drs enough for their thoroughness in seeking a diagnosis for me. I was dreading a diagnosis of lupus but that is what I have; it has been made easier knowing that I am being treated by such caring people.

Thank you for taking the time to give your comments regarding your recent visit to the hospital. I am pleased your expereince was a positive one and that the support you recieved from the staff was good. I am sorry to hear that your diagnosis was the one you were dreading, but hope that the treatment you receive in the future will be as positive as this was. I have included the website for Lupus UK, which may be of interest to you, if you already have this - please ignore.www.lupusuk.org.uk Wishing you all the very best for the future.
