I had a surgery performed by Dr Tsekes on 2nd November 2019 and I am very impressed with his professionalism. He had explained to me the procedure in full before and he also showed me photos and explained what happened during the surgery after. I highly recommend him.
Very happy with the consultation.Mr Tsekes treated my hand problems and guided me .Really impressed.
Very good experience - have felt everything has been clearly communicated throughout my experience and outcome has been really positive from operation so far.
Extremely pleasant and approachable Answered any questions and explained everything he was going to do both at consultation and at the bedside Can't thank him enough
An excellent experience throughout. I was seen in a timely fashion and received a thorough history taking, examination, explanation of my symptoms and treatment plan. I had investigations and a joint injection carried out within 2 weeks of the initial consultation which has successfully relieved my symptoms. My follow up consultation gave me reassurance that I could receive more treatment as required. The only slightly negative experience is that I have been sent emails with a texted password and I am unable to open these. Although I have replied to ask for help, I have received no response so these emails are useless to me at present.
