"Nervous outpatient"

About: Newark Hospital

Anything else?

I recently attended two clinics and was extremely nervous and embarrassed. However, everyone I met, from doctors to volunteers, was so very kind that I was soon at ease. I was very well looked after by people who were skilled and very caring.

This is a very professional place that has not lost the friendliness and family feeling essential for the positivity of those who are ill. The best indicator overall is the way busy people smile and greet you as they pass in corridor.

Should I have any health difficulties again, I hope I can return to Newark for treatment required.
