The procedure was carried out on November 2nd and was successfully completed. I recieved a telephone call from Mr Maytham on December 15th to check my condition which was fine.

    I consulted Gary Maytham regarding varicose veins. I found Gary to be a very professional and caring consultant. At my initial consultation with him he scanned my legs and explained very carefully what treatment was needed. He supplied me with his 2 very helpful and informative booklets on both procedure and post-procedural and told me if I had any questions to get in touch with him. I subsequently did this and he responded to my questions very promptly. The procedure (EVLT) was carried out at Ashtead Hospital. I chose to have a local anaesthetic as this would enable me to tell Gary if I experienced any discomfort. The procedure went very well and I was discharged home the same evening. Due to the Covid-19 crisis my follow up consultation with Gary had to be carried out over the telephone and during this consultation Gary told me he would ask his secretary to contact me as soon as he was able to see me in clinic so he could carry out the scans to check that the procedure had been successful. I am delighted to say that I have now had my face to face consultation with Gary and the scans confirm the procedure has been entirely successful. Gary's care throughout has been excellent and I find him very personable. I have total confidence in Gary and will not hesitate to return to him should the need arise in future. I highly recommend Gary.

    It was a relief to be referred to Mr Maytham and I knew instantly in our first consultation that I was in safe hands. He was polite, calm, knowledgeable and thorough, explaining everything and answering all my questions. I have no doubt in his evaluation and recommended management of my issue. Mr Maytham also has access to very experienced colleagues, and I felt my case was getting all the attention it needed. I am very pleased, not only with the final outcome but also in the way I was treated throughout.

    Very professional, very kind, put me at ease and explained the procedure at all stages throughout, in a language I could understand. He took the time and trouble to find the cause of my problem, which another consultant had dismissed. Most definitely recommend him.

    I had general surgery performed by Mr Gary Maytham. Everything went very well and on the evening of the op. All the details of the procedure that I was having and what to expect during and after, was explained thoroughly through the appointments that I attended and the paperwork that I received. I am more than pleased and happy with the outcome, and will certainly be recommending him.

    On my initial visit Mr. Maytham explained fully the procedure I would undergo, possible after-effects, and answered my questions in a polite and helpful way, demonstrating what the scans he took showed concerning the veins he would operate on. The operation itself was straightforward and almost painless. I was given information sheets to take home, and encouraged to get in touch if I had any concerns. On my follow-up visit Mr. Maytham examined my legs, again with the aid of scans, asked if I had experienced any pain, and referred me for treatment on the remaining thread veins.

    I found Mr Maytham to be professional, clear and extremely courteous. He explained everything to me about the operation and the risks. Despite warning me of one possible complication, Mr Maytham performed the operation very well and it all went very smoothly (my thanks too to the anaesthetist!). Mr Maytham was again professional, clear and courteous for my follow up consultation. He saw me on time and I was on my way promptly. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Maytham to anyone else.
