if you were scanned by Dr Stefano Cirillo at the Marion Gluck clinic and given the all clear, you should get yourself re-scanned. He scanned me, told me I was fine, and 4 months later i was in the A&E with 6 cm dermoid cyst that had caused an ovarian torsion. I lost my right ovary as a result of his negligence. My NHS consultant told me she would bet her life my cyst was there when I was scanned 4 months prior and the doctor missed it. One month after I complained to Marion Gluck herself, telling her she needed to tell every woman he'd scanned that they should be rechecked, Dr Cirillo skips town and they say they don't have an address for him. I was lucky. My cyst wasn't cancerous but I lost an ovary, which seems to have tipped me into full-fledged menopause. I am putting out this warning so that other women know the clinic is not reliable and it can have disastrous consequences. I have been told by other doctors that they've had problems with scans from the Marion Gluck clinic.
We are very disappointed by your comment as we have invited you to the clinic to discuss this matter in person. We do not feel it is reasonable to say we have been negligent as these claims are unfounded. As a responsible healthcare provider, we do take your complaint very seriously and are fully prepared to work with you to seek a resolution on this matter.
Yours sincerely, Lorenza, General Manager at The Marion Gluck Clinic
With all do respect, if its unfounded why has the person in question gone awol? I hope that this is thoroughly investigated because nobody should have to go through such a thing in this day and age, with the kindof technological advances in the medical field nowadays.
It is unprofessional and probably breaks patient confidentiality to name the OP in your post. She has posted anonymously and that confidentiality should be respected. If you have a problem with the content then report the post, don't dig yourself a deeper hole.
Seems kind of silly for the clinic to post a response as now it has been bumped for more people to read this! I must say I do find this very worrying - thank god it wasn't cancerous! But no woman should have to go through that. There's no point getting scanned if you can't trust the clinic. I'll steer clear - thanks for speaking up, OP.
Why is a business posting on mumsnet? It’s not for you it’s for parents, parents to be and those hoping to be parents. Some of wholm are struggling like this poor op. Shame on you for naming and embarrassing her. We’re here to support each other and share experience and opinions. Butt out!
Wow I can't believe an actual clinic would be so brazen about data protection as to name a patient on an anonymous forum. What the actual?? Says a lot about this particular clinic and the 'care' they provide patients.
