“My philosophy was to open a centre with emphasis on medicine and patient care. With this in mind we have assembled a staff with unparalleled experience and expertise and have purchased the finest equipment in the industry in order to deliver to our patients the best experience and results possible. Notwithstanding that, we remain committed to providing this service at an affordable price and in no way compromising patient care.”
