Tana Parker, Point Cook, VIC.

Unfortunately I had to present on December 23, 2018, at the Bryon Central Hospital due to a gardening accident involving a lack of co-ordination and a pair of rather sharp gardening shears.

I was seen remarkably quickly by triage and Dr AZ, who was incredibly brilliant: a quick anaesthetic needle and five stitches with the delivery of some sound advice on post treatment management so as to avoid infection.

All advice was soundly followed and recovery proceeded perfectly. Big thank you to all the incredible staff and Dr AZ, short for Absolutely Zappy.

‘But nothing is more estimable than a physician who, having studied nature from his youth, knows the properties of the human body, the diseases which assail it, the remedies which will benefit it, exercises his art with caution, and pays equal attention to the rich and the poor.’ – Voltaire

With admiration and thanks.
