Sports Therapist Wendy Cummings, from Fareham, was finding work a struggle due to persistent pains in her stomach - until her visit to the Treatment Centre's Endoscopy Unit.
As someone who knows what it takes to be fit and healthy, she knew suffering with these pains every time she ate wasn’t right, so made an appointment with her GP. After eliminating a few possibilities, her GP recommended some further investigations.
“My GP said I needed to go to hospital to have some tests and offered me a choice of where I wanted to go” said Wendy. “He mentioned the Treatment Centre and spoke highly of their treatment so I decided to go there.”
After her GP referred her, Wendy was given an appointment for her initial consultation at the Treatment Centre’s Endoscopy suite just ten days later, with the Consultant recommending an Endoscopic examination, for which she was booked in just a week after that.
Wendy said: “It was great how quickly and easily it all happened. All of the information that I received prior to my visits was clear and sufficient - even the text in the booklet was a nice size. On both my visits the staff were just brilliant, they reassured me along the way and what I really liked is the fact they were honest - if it was going to be uncomfortable then they would say exactly that, so I knew what to expect.”
Wendy’s examination showed there was nothing untoward happening and she was able to leave the Treatment Centre without further worries.
“After the examination it was great to hear I was all clear. I seemed to feel better immediately after my procedure as I could relax knowing I was ok.”
Wendy is now able to eat and work without worrying about the pain reoccurring. She was delighted with all aspects of her treatment at the centre and is keen to let people know about the quality of service offered:
“Immediately after my examination I recommended the Treatment centre to a business partner and wouldn’t think twice about recommending it to other friends and family.”
