I have so far in my life, encountered 6 surgeons (the other 5 being with Transform) and I only wish I knew about Lase/James previously as I would have saved a lot of money correcting results I wasn’t happy with. No other surgeon has shown me such respect, courtesy, care and patience (in re explaining multiple aspects) both prior to, during and following surgery. He is literally an outstanding surgeon and person and I would recommend him to anyone. Cannot sing this surgeons praises enough really, a huge asset to the profession!
James was extremely friendly throughout my experience and his sole purpose was to always make me feel comfortable throughout. He was very approachable and no question was too small. He explained every step of the pricess clearly and kept in constant contact throughout. He was the ultimate professional and I am so glad I chose him for my procedure.
My experience was brilliant from pre operative discussions (desired outcome, risks, Q&A), through to operation (breast reduction) and post op care.
James was incredible with me from start to finish. When I first came to James he felt I was slightly too young for Botox and that I needed some time to really think about it. A few years later I went back and had the treatment. He thoroughly explained all the risks, possible complications and importance of aftercare with me. He then saw me a few weeks later to make sure I was happy. I wouldn’t got to anyone else, regardless of price. James is, in my opinion, the best around. He’s also really friendly, puts me at ease and makes me feel like no question is stupid. As well as all of this, I’ve had lip fillers with him several times and he’s an absolute genius! He gives me the exact shape I want and always goes on the philosophy that less is more to start with. I trust him completely and unless he moves to a remote island that’s impossible to get to, I won’t be going anywhere else for treatments
James not only saved my life on the NHS when I had sepsis from surgery in turkey, but he did all my corrective work privately as I was left in a mess after the botched surgery in turkey. James is an amazing surgeon, so caring, compassionate and really cares about his patients and the aftercare is second to non. There’s no other surgeon I would trust in the world his talents are endless
I am absolutely thrilled with my arm lift performed by the talented Mr James Wokes! He is highly experienced, professional and extremely personable. I felt absolutely as ease as soon as I had my first consultation with him and I'm so happy that I chose him. His follow up care is also wonderful he's always there if you have any questions. I have felt very well looked after by him from the start. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again should I decide to have further surgery in the future. I would absolutely, without doubt, recommend him.
