Patient Testimony

Here is what our patients had to say about our Dermatology services.

"Dear Jason,
I telephoned the Appleby Centre on Thursday 17th December and you dealt with my query very efficiently.
I then explained to you that I was waiting for an appointment at Whipps Cross. You went the extra mile by offering to telephone Whipps Cross and get back to me - which you did! - in about 20 minutes. You explained very clearly what had happened and then you went the extra mile again by saying if I hadn't heard anything by mid January to get back to you and you would try to sort things out for me.
In short you were courteous, efficient, reliable and you went beyond what I, as a patient/ customer expected. You may feel you were only doing your job. Well I wish your job was training a lot of the people I end up speaking to on the phone. You were great - A big thank you and Merry Christmas!"

"As a very grateful patient, I would like to express my gratitude for the advice and treatment I received whilst receiving care from Dr Sheetle Shah of the Dermatology service at Patient First. She is exceptionally knowledgeable in her area of expertise and this is expressed in the most warm-hearted manner. She is a credit to her profession and another reason why the NHS is such a valuable commodity."
