A nervous patient would find it very easy to trust himAlison, Greece, 18 10 17

Visited for revision of root canal treatment. Carried out over two visits to the comfortable clinic in Chania (easy to find and park outside!) Vasilis Kourouklidis treated me with utmost care and kindness and I would recommend him without hesitation. I imagine that he would be someone that a nervous patient would find very easy to trust. Will certainly visit again if necessary.
