"Dr Audrain has been very supportive the last few months. I'm so glad I chose her as my consultant as she knew exactly what treatment I needed and how long for. I'm so happy with the final outcome."
"I was very nervous about having a cancerous growth surgically removed from the side of my face near to my eye. Dr Audrain went to considerable lengths to fully explain the procedure and more importantly to re assure me. The care I received during, and after the operation, from Dr Audrain and her team was excellent, the operation went very well and the resultant scar is hardly visible."
"Dr Helen Audrain has been a fantastic support to me this last few months, I couldn't have asked for better help and she really has changed so much for me - I am very grateful. My monthly consultations were packed with tips and advice and I always had fantastic access with whatever query, whatever time of the day. I cannot recommend Dr Helen and her experience enough. Thank you so much." Deyá
