I came into Southend Hospital in great pain and very scared. From the very first meeting of ESTHER FINE, she put me at ease, and I did not feel scared anymore. I know that I was VERY LUCKY to have had ESTHER FINE as my surgeon. It turned out that I had a bowel blockage and a hernia. I would urge anyone finding themselves in the same position as me, to trust and feel at ease with this surgeon.
