What patients say about Wale Olarinde

The time and interest Mr Olarinde gave is second to none. When I asked about private treatment, he discussed it with me but at no point did I feel under any pressure. He listened and cared, making me feel that I wasn’t on my own. I felt vulnerable after my surgery, but because he rang me at home to check on how I was doing I was completely reassured. I cannot stress enough how much Mr Olarinde did for me just by the time he gave.
