  • Thank you so much for your kind and sympathetic treatment yesterday afternoon, when i gate-crashed your busy clinic. I am especially pleased with the magnifying glass you gave me – I had tried one before but had not found it satisfactory, this is obviously a superior model made for the purpose and works well…
