    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    Mr Kukreja is one of those rare experts who explains the medical problem to you in such a way you completely understand the situation. We were lucky to see him at a time when the suspicion of a serious diagnosis still had to be confirmed or denied. Mr Kukreja knew immediately what the problem was allaying our fears and dispelling our anxieties. I feel he saved my husband's life in the past and for this we will be eternally in his debt. Not only is he a brilliant surgeon but one who still possesses the genius of being able to "connect" with 'ordinary' people.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    I found Mr Kukreja to be willing to explain the details of the operation and also reasons why a hernia happened. He was relaxed and confident on the afternoon of the operation and it seems that my experience of the after effects of the procedure were as expected. The only thing I cannot remember being told about was the possibility of the operation interfering with the nerves in my groin area. This was only transient but did cause me concerns at the time. Overall I would describe experience to be less stressful than exoected.

    My experience of having Mr Kukreja as my consultant was amazing. Everything was explained to me in great detail and I believe the care and interest he took in me as a patient was above any expectations I had. I was put at ease from my first consultation and I can't thank him enough for everything he has done for me.

    Where do I start?! Had 2 lots of surgery this year by Neil. I am very impressed with the way he took time to explain the diagnosis and plan of action. His manner and care both pre and post op was great - The care he took in the detail of how he did the incisions, the preclosure reconstruction etc to ensure a very neat and virtually scarfree wound site. My recovery from both lots of surgery has been amazing. What ever area of my experience with Neil in the 2 times I have had surgery this year that you could ask me about, all I can say is 'BRILLIANT and I fully commend him'.
