    From my first consultation my requirements and concerns were listened to and understood. Mr Bain was very thorough, informative and empathetic. He took time to consider my particular circumstances and was positive about my outcomes. Due to covid and my work schedule my surgery date took some time to arrange but he kept me updated and saw me several times to go over my procedure and reassure me of my expected outcomes. My surgery went smoothly and he has been caring and considerate during my follow up appointments. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
