    I recently utilised the services of Dr Campbell and, despite not being in the best of health, found the experience far less traumatic and upsetting than I expected. He is efficient, with an excellent 'bedside manner', and explained all the issues of my condition, inviting questions and delivering answers and advice in a friendly and reassuring manner. While I am in no rush to repeat the experience, it was hardly pleasant for Dr Campbell, his first-rate team nor myself, I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Campbell to others.

    It can be both difficult and, for some, potentially embarrassing, to approach a specialist with certain health issues where both a diagnoses and treatement are required. This is where Simon excels. His interpersonal skills are most excellent and reassuring. He is exceptionally patient focused and places great emphasis to ensure that your needs are very much his priority. He is an exceptional specialist and, as equally important, most accessible in all ways to the patient. Most recommended, without hesitation.

    Simon Campbell is an expert in the field of Gastroenterology. His advice has always been given, subsequent to his gaining a most thorough understanding of my circumstances and symptomatic presentation. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon to patients unfortunate enough to find themselves in a state of health requiring his expertise.
