I have given a 5 star rating to my consultation with Mr Aylott. His overall manner put me immediately at ease. He allowed me to explain in full what my problem was. His overview of my condition was very thorough. Following my scan and X-ray he explained in detail my problem and gave my a comprehensive series of options available to me. I left my meeting with a positive attitude to my condition. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
Mr Aylott made me feel totally at ease, answered all my questions and made me feel that someone had taken an interest in me. Getting the answer to why I have lower back pain has put my mind at ease and with some life changes I can manage my symptoms and get on with my life.
Mr Aylott has a relaxed but professional approach. He provides very clear explanations when reviewing test results and always give full details for recommendations for treatment. Overall an excellent experience and would definitely recommend him.
Very much appreciated Mr Aylott advice and care. Very professional, very down to earth explanations on condition and next steps, realistic in detailing outcomes. Very happy with the help I received.
Overall excellent experience. Mr Aylott was friendly and understanding and clear in his diagnosis & explanations. I would recommend him to others.
Mr Aylott was very professional, helpful and reassuring. The "One Stop Shop" of assessment consultation, scans and then results consultation is really good. Mr Aylott is very strongly recommended. The staff at Linton House were all very friendly and helpful and the Covid precautions were excellent.
Excellent and efficient one-stop-service offering clear explanation of my diagnosis and proactive treatment advice. As a healthcare employee myself I would highly recommend to others, this Service and Consultant.
My whole experience was very relaxing under the circumstances and I was relieved to receive a clear and concise diagnosis of my problem with a detailed description of my treatment options. Many thanks.
Very professional and likeable at the same time
Disk Replacement - A total success story ======================================= I suffered from a significant herniated disk in the cervical vertebrae which had caused me 24/7 agony for 3 weeks and then I finally sought a referral which brought me to Mr. Aylott. I cannot recall the name of the service but it was the 'express' one whereby we have an initial consultation, a scan and then a meeting to discuss the results of the scan.... ALL IN THE SAME DAY! Based on Mr. Aylott's assessment of my scan he proposed 3 options 1) Give it a bit more time to sort itself out 2) Try a steroid injection or 3) Replace the disk. Based on how long I had suffered and Mr. Aylotts guidance, it took me about 30 seconds to decide on the surgery. And then to my amazement I contacted Penny in the office and was able to schedule the operation within just a few days. On the day of the surgery, the staff at the Nuffield were extremely professional, attentive and knew exactly what to do, I was prepped for the op, induced and then went into the op. I then woke up groggy a few hours later, Mr. Aylott came to my bedside to check on me and give me some tips on what to expect and what not to do and I was discharged the very next day even though I had the option of staying longer. Basically I was ready to go and felt great... so much so that I went to Sainsburys with my wife to pick up some groceries on the way back from the Nuffield(not that I was carrying them :-) I then had 1-2 follow up meetings with Mr. Aylott over the following months where I asked various questions about what I could and could not do to re-affirm my understanding of the need to go gently on my spine for the period after the replacement. Now, at the 1 year mark I am happy to say that from the moment I was in recovery after the surgery until now, I have felt 100% better and perfectly normal. Yes, I had to curtail any diving into a pool, or seriously heavy lifting during this year but that was nothing more than being sensible given the disk replacement. In closing I would like to say that Mr. Aylott, his staff and the staff at the Nuffield are superstars and I love them all! You really don't appreciate or have the empathy for chronic sufferers of pain until it happens to you. In my case I had but a brief glimpse of such chronic pain and was fortunate to be able to have it 'fixed'. God Bless Mr. Aylott and his skills.
Clear and concise. Kept away from baffling medical jargon which could confuse a lot of people. Very good advise going forward and very willing to answer all questions no matter how trivial. Very pleased with my visit and would recommend him highly.
As a ‘regular’ customer, I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr Aylott. I trust his advice and skills as a surgeon.
Mr Aylott was extremely professional and personable in his dealings with me. He was very clear when it came to explain my condition and the prognosis for the future.
I am really grateful to Mr Aylott for his help and sound advice. I wish I’d known about him 12 months ago, when I first started having severe pain in my leg.
I was very impressed by Mr Aylott's caring manner and his professional ability. His diagnosis was clearly explained and I have no hesitation in recommending him for a consultation.
Mr Aylott arranged swift scans to check out my problem and delivered the results immediately with his recommendations which was very helpful and reasuring.
I have always found Mr Aylott a very understanding surgeon. He listens, advises and always gives a good explanation of his findings. He sees you as a person and is very respectful. I would recommend him to anyone. With his expertise he has improved my life considerably over the past 3 years.
Mr. Aylott performed a microdiscectomy on my back in 2017 with great results. I returned to see him in Feb 2020 just for some advice on some pain I was getting. After a consultation and tests he slowly went through all my results and gave me great advice to help me through my current issues. I came away feeling totally assured and a lot more relaxed. Would highly recommend him.
Mr Aylott listened to my symptoms and explained what was going to happen. On getting the results, Mr Aylott clearly described his findings and answered all of my questions.
Excellent prompt attention. Detailed explanation and support much appreciated.
I have always found My Aylott to be attentive, listening carefully to all I needed to say, ready to answer questions to my satisfaction, to ensure I have understood all aspects of my complex spinal issues, treatment and ongoing care. His outstanding knowledge and experience in combination with his total concern for his patient have resulted in my complete confidence in him. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Aylott to anyone requiring an orthopaedic surgeon.
I feel extremely fortunate to have sought treatment from Mr Aylott. From start to finish he and his team have been extremely helpful, caring and efficient. I visited his one-stop clinic which meant I had a consultation, scans and results in only a few hours which was extremely convenient. I’ve since visited Mr Aylott several times over the course of almost a year and always left reassured that the next step would be the right one. In short, I can not recommend Mr Aylott and his team highly enough.
I was very happy with every part of my experience during my one stop clinic appointment. During the initial consultation I was asked lots of questions and was really listened to. When I went back after my MRI and X-rays for my second consultation everything was explained to me in great detail, so that I fully understood what was going on with my back. I felt very reassured and confident in what I was being advised and came away with a clear idea of the next steps needed. I am really pleased that I decided to see Mr Aylott and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Mr Aylott listened and understood the concerns I had about my symptoms in the light of previous orthopaedic operations. His diagnosis the same day meant I was able to be reassured that no surgical intervention was required and his advice as to how to manage the symptoms felt appropriate and achievable. I would recommend his One-Stop clinic to anyone wanting to know in great detail what is happening and be given solutions in the space of one afternoon.
Would & have recommended him to friends
I have had scans and consultations about the results on previous occasions and I can honestly say that Mr. Aylott has been the specialist who has given me the most confidence both in his approach and in the clarity of his explanation and advice. To undergo a consultation is a stressful experience and to do so in extreme pain adds an extra dimension to the anxiety: Mr. Aylott's manner and attitude alleviated the stress and allayed the anxiety. In addition, his advice was focussed, practical and reassuring. I hope I don't need to go through this experience again but should I need to do so, then I would most certainly be returning to Mr. Aylott.
