When I first met Mr Farquharson, I was experiencing a very low quality of life due to a rectal prolapse. A comprehensive outline of the procedure was given. I was very nervous but he was very reassuring while also being very realistic about the risks associated with the procedure and thereby setting my expectations accordingly. I am delighted the procedure was a great success and I am now once again able to do everything I was able to before my prolapse occurred.
I found Mr. farquharson to be very professional, caring and understanding explaining proposed treatment in detail. he made myself and family at ease and we were able to discuss with him my concerns and I felt very reassured.
Mr Farquharson has been wonderful, sorting out my problems very quickly. He explains things thoroughly but in a way that is easy to understand. He is very kind and caring and made me feel very much at ease. Everyone I saw in my appointments with Mr Farquharson's team were brilliant. Mr Farquharson also referred me very quickly to Sister Ebanks who has also been wonderful helping me with MS related bowel issues, Sister Ebanks quickly sorted things for me and offers great follow up. I am very grateful to Mr Farquharson, SR Ebanks and all in the treatment centre for their care, kindness and consideration. Thank you all very much.
