"Staff at Yarra Ranges Health superb."

About: Yarra Ranges Health

(as the patient),

The staff at Yarra Ranges Health in Lilydale are superb. I was a bit nervous going into the hospital, since I'd already had a previous encounter with cancer a few years ago. Everyone, from the lady at the front desk to the nurse that walked me out after the procedure was very caring - and it seemed very sincere. The most comforting moment was just before the biopsy when I had a chat with the surgeon that was performing the biopsy. The words he said made me feel like it was just a precaution, no worries. Eliminating fear and anxiety before an operation is something that every hospital should focus on, and the staff at Lilydale are real pros and kind and respectful.
