Mr Wasson has a very understanding manner to patient needs. Everything is explained fully and you are made to feel relaxed and important. At no time during my consultations did I get the feeling that my consultation time was running out. He also made sure that I understood everything he was saying and doing. A credit to the profession.
Thank you for your kind feedback. I am pleased you had a good experience.
