VIEW ALLWhat Our Patients Say

Like looking through a misty pane, Everything seems drab and grey, Then Mr. Golchin's skillful hands, Opened the door to a clearer land. Dust and cobwebs, now I see, Passing spiders wink at me! Wrinkles on my face and neck - Heavens above - I look a wreck! But I can see bright colours, Little birds upon the trees And hills and distant valleys, That for long evaded me. How wonderful the advances made in medical R and D, And Mr. Golchin's gifted hand, That restored good spirit to me.
