    I can’t recommend Dr Fry enough, he is brilliant. He explained my treatment at a level that I would understand and gave me options within my treatment plan. When I expressed that I was nervous about surgery he spent time helping to alleviate my fears and gave me confidence instead.

    I was dealt with very professionally throughout. Mr Fry couldn’t have been more approachable and helpful. I was offered an appointment for the day after my request and I received a copy of the letter Mr Fry sent to my GP two days after my appointment.

    .Many thanks to Mr Fry and his team for their great and professional service. Unexpectedly I noticed a white mouth lesion which didn't go away even after 4 weeks. It was reassuring to see an expert in his field. Mr Fry performed the biopsy himself and all is well and the biopsy site healed very well with no complications. Thanks again!....'

    From the initial consultation to the surgery itself, I was very happy to be under Mr Fry's care. Mr Fry is clearly an exceptional and skilled surgeon with a warm and friendly manner - I immediately felt that I was in very safe hands. Mr Fry also ensured that I was informed about the procedure, explaining my options thoroughly so I felt entirely at ease, despite any nerves that I had about the procedure. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Fry and his team. Kind regards, Becky
