General Medical Council
Mr James created a friendly and welcoming environment. I am naturally an anxious person, but Mr James went through my medical problems and explained my options in detail. He provided me with an in depth explanation of the procedures available to me. His secretary Tracey is also absolutely amazing and helpful, and ensures smooth and prompt communication.
Extremely professional. Listened to what I was trying to achieve and actioned that accordingly. Couldn’t be happier with the results. Minimal swelling and bruising post op. 90% recovered in less than a week. Scarring is minimal and cannot be seen with my eyes open.
Mr James has provided a first class service from my initial consultation, through to post op care. I am beyond happy with the results and cannot thank Mr James enough! I would highly recommend.
Not happy with the results unnecessary scarring
Hi I’m sorry you’re unhappy with the results of surgery on your lids. Please make an appointment to discuss, as you can see from the reviews this is an unusual situation…..
Dr James and his team were wonderful. I felt very relaxed and am amazed already after only two days, of the results. The before and after care attention was second to none from both Dr James and the team.
I recently had a breast uplift operation with Dr James and I could not be happier with the results. They are better than I could have dreamed of. Dr James explained everything very clearly at the pre op consultation in a caring, kind manner and I was treated very well. I would highly recommend him.
I found my whole experience with Mr James very calming, reassuring and professional. I am beyond happy with everything he has done, from advising me with what was best for my body and the look I wanted to achieve. I would highly recommend Mr James to everyone.
When I went for my consultation with Mr Matthew James I was very nervous he talked me through everything and explained the surgery the pros & the cons, he made me feel really comfortable very easy to talk to he answered all my questions. I had my surgery at the Real clinic what a lovely clinic all the staff & nurses were really lovely and caring they really looked after me while I was there.I’m now six weeks post my breast augmentation surgery I’m doing really well and my new breast look amazing I cannot thank mr Matthew James enough he has really changed my life I don’t think he realises what an impact he has on peoples lives by doing such an amazing job as a surgeon i would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to get any surgery.
Wonderful consultant with a thoughtful and caring manner. Tracey who supports him was consistently polite and efficient. Would confidently recommend Mr James to anyone looking for a discreet service. I am very pleased with facelift.
My daughter and I saw Mr James for mole and various lesion removal. Our experience has been outstanding with great results as there is literally minuscual scarring. We wanted everyone who is considering choosing him as their consultant to be totally reassured and confident that he is definitely a great surgeon to choose. From the outset he made us both feel very safe and relaxed in his care. He has a lovely manner and takes the time to listen to your needs and any concerns you may have. No question is too much trouble to him to answer and reassure you. Both of us had our procedures done on the day of the consultation with great ease and minimal pain and discomfort. The communication with his secretary, Tracey, is the best we have ever experienced! Nothing is too much trouble to her and she responds promptly to emails. We would 100% recommend Mr James to anybody who is looking for a Plastic Surgeon. He is absolutely brilliant and we would like to express how thankful we are to him for his great care, skill and approachability along with his unbelievable expertise and knowledge. Should the need occur in the future , we would both without doubt return to him for treatment!
