What our Patients Think
We are delighted when our patients take the time to share their experiences with us.
I was just so impressed. I would recommend him to anyone.
It's such a relief to get someone that understands and takes the time to fully explain everything to us. He even answered my stupid questions without making me feel stupid.
The care he afforded me was first class.
"The care he afforded me was first class. Right from the start, I had every confidence in John's abilities. He is also blessed with a great sense of humour and has made me smile on many occasions."
He looked after me in a fantastic way.
"The standard of care with John was like moving from the conference league of football to world cup finals. He looked after me in a fantastic way medically, personally, every way you could imagine. I’d recommend him to everybody. He’s approachable and Angela, his secretary, is lovely as well."
I really wish everyone going through cancer had a doctor like John.
"John was my surgeon for thyroid cancer in 2015. He suggested I have a biopsy on a suspicious thyroid nodule and then performed the surgery for a partial thyroidectomy..."
