After examining suspicious moles on my forehead and face, the consultant dermatologist said it was important that I had a biopsy as soon as possible. The consultant very kindly asked me to come back later that day to conduct the biopsy, and they gave up some of their lunchtime to accommodate me. This went beyond the call of duty for which I'm very grateful. First class service. Thank you.
