What People Say
I had the pleasure of meeting with Ken (Dr Anson) after some really awful reoccurring UTIs. He was so kind and easy to talk to, whilst remaining truly professional at all times.
To be honest, I was almost upset when he discharged me! A great doctor and I’m so glad I went to see him.
