    Mr Khoo has assisted my family and myself over many years and we have always found him to be respectful, professional and excellent at clearly explaining symptons, procedures and cures. Throughout my recent consultations and investigative procedures I am fully satisfied with the service and professionalism extended by Mr Khoo and the team that works with him.

    Always entirely professional but also incredibly compassionate and generous with his time. I have never felt rushed out of an appointment and any concerns I have had, have always been explained methodically and in detail. I could not ask for better care. Mr Khoo has always gone out of his way to reassure me and put my mind at rest whenever I have been worried. He has also been patient and kind when I have needed to bring my young baby to appointments.

    I found Mr Khoo very professional . His manner was polite. He explained my procedure so that I easily understood it. He checked on me after surgery explaining the alternative actions he had to take and the reason behind it. At my follow up appointment he assured me he had completely repaired my hernia and was confident that my recovery was on track. His manner throughout was very pleasant and made me feel at ease and very confident in his competence.
