"All aspects of my care was outstanding"

About: Wonthaggi Hospital

(as the patient),

I had a total hip replacement last month. The whole experience was outstanding for me. Kim, the admissions officer, was totally professional and very kind and caring, she referred me to Dr Yalamber, the anaesthetist, who managed my pain levels and came to see me every day for 9 days to check on my condition, he was also very kind and caring he couldn't have done more for me. My surgeon Dr Rodney also did a fantastic job in getting my operation done in 10 weeks. The nursing staff went over and above the call of duty and all were wonderful to me I couldn't have asked for more from them. Overall Wonthaggi Hospital made my stay an excellent experience from start to finish and I can't thank everyone enough. Thank you all so much.

P.S. The food was great too.

Kind regards.
