"My experience at Maroondah Hospital was pleasant and comfortable"

About: Maroondah Hospital Mitcham Private Hospital

(as the patient),

A few months ago I was diagnosed with some nasties in my right breast, which followed a stream of doctors' and hospital visits. I ended up having a right breast biopsy at Mitcham Private Hospital on the advice of my doctor. I ended up with severe bruising, which I thought would be expected. This led to the removal of a lump at Maroondah Hospital.

Recently there was some questionable calcification in the left breast which led to a core biopsy at Maroondah Hospital. WOW! what a difference, Sue took me under her wing with outstanding compassion, where I was led to see Lynette who was so gentle with me. I then had the biopsy performed by the most gentlest & professional of doctors. My experience with Maroondah not only was pleasant and comfortable but there was bruising the size of a 5 cent coin.

Score board is up Maroondah 1.....Mitcham Private 0.

Thank you to all the staff at Maroondah.
