After being diagnosed with a frontal lobe brain tumour I was admitted to the Gold Coast Hospital the following day. I am not in a position to be able to afford private health insurance and was therefore extremely grateful to have a top surgeon such as Dr Ellison Stephenson perform my operation. I saw her recently in outpatients and she led me by the hand to the consult room. Not only an amazing Doctor but a wonderfully compassionate woman to a public health patient.
