An absolutely amazing surgeon who I have since recommended to a number of people. I had total faith in his skills and knew that I would be in safe hands and receive the best possible care. The aftercare has been outstanding - there were times when I would send an email on a Saturday evening not expecting a reply until the Monday and had an immediate response. He is very accessible and thorough too. One of the best surgeons I have encountered.
I have not seen Dr Mannur since September 2018, however my whole experience following my procedure has been excellent
Excellent. Couldn’t ask for a more thorough, understanding and highly-skilled surgeon.
Absolutely over the moon with my weight loss, my care with mr manur has been excellent and the spire hospital care was faultless. Excellent surgeon, can’t recommend enough.
Lovely, kind man - always a pleasure to see him.
