“Mr Curran is a very experienced, professional and knowledgeable Colorectal Surgeon. I found that he asked the relevant medical questions to get to the crux of my problem, listened to me as a patient, as well as being personable in his delivery of the medical facts. He diagnosed my problem in a very efficient and timely manner – from first investigations to major surgery was less than 3 weeks, which assisted me with my fight with cancer. The aftercare from the surgery and the diagnosis, was empathetic, supportive and understanding and his specialism allowed me to be referred to a leading Lymphoma specialist who helped me beat the disease! I would thoroughly recommend Mr Curran to any potential patient based on the excellent experience and outcomes that transpired from my own personal perspective. “
