Decided to go private as I was concerned and did not want to wait a month for appointment. Dr put my fears at rest and fully explained what to look out for as well as giving me a leaflet to refer to. Had small tag removed while I was there . Very pleased I took this route and very pleased with the service provided.

I felt Dr Ashton knew his field of expertise which in turn gave me confidence in his judgement. Never felt a thing during minor surgery and his assistant nurse Karen was very good at her job and pleasant conversation was had by all during the procedure.

I was only expecting to speak with Dr Ashton on my initial visit this evening but he was able to carry out two 'local' operations for me, there and then. All now sorted! Thanks
