The whole process from referral to clinic was exemplary. Mr Donnelly took the time to understand my symptoms and explain both diagnosis and treatment options clearly and without being patronising. That put my mind at rest and enabled me to feel comfortable and confident in the decision I then made. If Mr Donnelly isn’t being used as an example of best practice to junior doctors, he should be!

Mr Donnelly listened well to my symptoms, understood the issues, explained the treatment without using complex medical terminology. It gave a great deal of comfort prior to operation and clarity of what to expect and how long to recovery. Which turned out to be spot on. Very pleased.

Mr Donnelly was easy to talk to and helpful. He listened carefully and understood and believed what I said. That really helps a lot as my medical history is a bit unusual and sometimes people think it cannot be true, or else they do not have the background knowledge to follow what I am saying. He examined me carefully, and explained his opinion very clearly. Everything that he said made a lot of sense in the context of my own experience and my understanding of the physiological underpinnings of my condition. The referrals that he has given me for treatment also make a lot of sense to me and I am looking forward to trying the things that he has suggested.
