    First time with Mr Dawson as I was unable to get a GP appointment. He put me at ease, listened to my concerns, and examined me with care and consideration. He clearly explained the results of his examination and possible courses of action. At no time did I feel uncomfortable or that I was wasting his time. I would be very happy to see Mr Dawson again should my condition require it.

    Mr Dawson was excellent. He explained what needed to be done and updated me throughout the process. He is precisely the kind of Consultant one needs for male Urology Issues . I recommend him and will consult him again without hesitation if required.

    Mr Dawson was very warm and welcoming which put me at ease as I was a bit nervous. I certainly didn't at any time feel he was rushing our chats to get to the next patient. He did a pretty good job at making medical terms and my condition understandable.
