    In addition to being an expert in his field, Mr Lowe has the rare ability of patiently listening to and making sense of the sometimes extraneous outpourings from someone who was obviously deeply concerned and worried about their health. In addition to this, he took on the mantle of IT expert when I experienced some difficulties while setting up the video consulting system. And although that was my first consultation, I am quite sure that he intends to keep in close touch until he gets to the bottom of what is happening with my various symptoms. I was very lucky to find him.

    I cannot fault Dr Lowe! After years of research and deliberation I finally decided to book a consultation with Dr Lowe. He was incredibly professional and informed me about the surgery that I was potentially looking at. At no point did Dr Lowe make any false promises and instead gave me a realistic view on the procedure and the necessity of it. I am so glad that I have gone ahead with the consultation and I feel reassured that Dr Lowe will provide incredible care in the lead up to potential rhinoplasty surgery. After being nervous for so long, I now am looking forward to rectifying the problem with my nose. I cannot thank him enough!
