I'm happy with the information about my trigger finger and what treatment could be implemented. Neil gave me very sound advice and I feel he is concerned about his patients welfare rather than the money aspect. i was worried about a possible operation as I'm a craftsman and the time off for my finger to heal would have been costly. Neil was very reassuring and gave me his opinion in a blunt & honest fashion which i appreciated.
I Found Mr Walker friendly and courteous. He explained what needed to be done and why, on the day of the operation the staff were reassuring and kind.
Very friendly and open to questions.
Mr Walker has a friendly and approachable manner and explained everything well.
Excellent experience with Mr.Walker...One of the best doctors in his field..He views his patients with the same manner wether NHS or private...would highly recommend his services to anyone...
Throughout the consultations and procedure I felt completely at ease. At the first consultation Mr Walker explained precisely how he would perform the procedure, the risks, the advantages and what to expect as after care. During the procedure, because I had chosen a nerve block anesthetic I was fully conscious, and Mr Walker constantly asked if I could "feel" anything going to lengths to ensure that I was comfortable and aware. He was most considerate throughout. The final consultation gave me absolute confidence that everything was good, albeit that I suffered a heavy nose bleed, dripping blood over his desk! So embarrassing, but he took it all in his confident stride. Overall I was much impressed with his confident professionalism
Mr Walker was outstanding in his explanation of procedure and what it entailed On the day of procedure was reassuring and very professional The aftercare was also faultless
Excellent experience. Kept fully informed. Well looked after and safe in theatre. Operation was successful and I’m now pain free. Would definitely recommend Mr Walker.
Mr Walker is a great surgeon who fixed my hand , He explained the surgery to me in great detail and I felt at ease , and now my life is so much for better especially in work as I use my hand dispensing medication every day . Cannot thank him enough !
Everything clearly explained, extremely professional and the procedure was arranged quickly. I am a happy patient!
