"My experience was the best, which I can have in..."

About: Colchester General Hospital

What I liked

I had my total thyroidectomy on the 2nd of February 2012.

I would like to thank for all team who did my surgery, especially the doctor. Their work results are noticed by everyone, when they check my neck and scar left after surgery, no one can believe that I had my surgery just a week before! I am thrilled with the scar; it's very tidy and healing very well.

Also, I would like to thank to recovery room team. I am so sad that I can't remember the nurse name that was with me after surgery, but they were really nice and took care of me very well.

Also big thanks to all Mearsea Ward nurses and consulting doctors! I just felt in love with their smiles, communication, care, advices and the good atmosphere which they bring with themselves during each visit or checks. I was treated and accommodated like in 5 stars hotel!

So overall, my experience was the best, which I can have in such situation. Once again, thanks for all staff and their professionalism.
