A long overdue thank you for the kindness, help and advice to my mother. She came away from her appointment with you so happy...
I was treated with the utmost courtesy, kindness and care. Needless to say the operation was completely successful and it is a joy to be able to breathe, taste and smell properly again.
I can't begin to explain how truly grateful I am for everything you have done for me. Mr. Baer, you have made this whole experience so relaxed for me as it was my first time under general anaesthetic.
Just a quick note that say thanks for the great job you did on my ears.
