    I saw Dr Cross at the Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle, Manchester on 19th February 2020. On arrival Dr Cross explained the 2 procedures that i would be having to me in great detail and reassured me were I had concerns. I stayed at the Alexandra Hospital for the entire day, having a consultation with Dr Cross in the evening after all the tests were carried out. Dr Cross is a remarkable Doctor showing compassion, empathy and support. I travel from Nottingham to see Dr Cross as I feel that not only does he care about his patients well being but his knowledge in Hematology is beyond words. When I first saw Dr Cross I was devastated by the results of my tests but he encouraged me and helped me find a solution to my condition and now my results reflect all the hard work that I have made on the advise that i was given. Dr Cross stated that I could email him at anytime if I had any questions or I was unsure of anything, to which i did and I would always get a email in return with again encouragement and advise. In my opinion Dr Cross is a remarkable man who's dedication to his profession has made him an outstanding Doctor and I feel that he needs to have recognition in both the care of his patients he shows and his vast knowledge in his Hepatology. If you have a liver issue I would recommend Dr Cross again and again.

    We saw Dr Cross following repeated admissions to A and E with pains and rising liver functions. He was fabulous. Not only did he spend time taking a detailed history, but he made an immediate plan of care, ordered investigations and left no stone unturned. Once the diagnosis was made he then referred us to the appropriate specialist for the required procedure and kept in touch via email which went above and beyond. His knowledge and expertise is exemplary and we will be forever grateful to him. We would highly recommend him, not only for his knowledge and skills but for his approach to patient care. Thank you.

    We saw Dr Cross as we had been extremely concerned that my mother had been unwell and her liver function was increasing. What a charming and kind Dr whose knowledge and expertise is exemplary. He promptly ordered investigations, made a detailed plan of care and reassured us. He spent a long time putting our minds at ease and once the diagnosis was made, referred us immediately for the required procedure. To be seen by someone with such knowledge and skills was a huge blessing and relief and we will be forever grateful.

    I cannot express my gratitude towards Dr Tim Cross. He saw us very quickly following repeatedly visiting A and E for pains and unexplained rising liver functions. We were with him for way over our clinic slot on each occasion, but he didn’t rush us in any way. He took his time to be in touch with us in-between visits via email and was extremely reassuring. He understood all of our concerns and listened to everything that we wanted to talk about. His kindness, professionalism and exemplary knowledge is a rare find these days. We would like to thank him for everything.
