    I needed a timely consultation and subsequent tests after an issue at work. Dr Guttmann and the team were fantastic. Their whole approach was helpful, speedy and efficient. Everything was well explained and I left feeling reassured and calmer. I have already recommended Dr Guttmann to my work colleagues.

    I am humbled by my experience of the man, he made me cry for the first time in ages, when talking me through the operation afterwards. The relief and realisation of what could have happened without his expertise will stay with me. I am reminded of what l may have lost as l lie here at home convalescing, wife working nearby the bed and 13 year old son and daughter, 10 in their rooms.

    I felt confident and relaxed with (both Dr Guttmann who was present) and Dr Mick Ozkar who carried out the procedure. Afterwards the explanation of the findings was given in a straightforward manner which I prefer along with the the choices I had with them and thereafter my responses respected. Very kind and respectful gentleman.
