“The most important thing, initially, was that Mr Kirkpatrick inspired confidence - that he knew what he was doing and was confident about doing it. I had spoken to other consultants who left me in some doubts. I found him a really nice man, honest and straight forward, explaining the process clearly and carrying through. He told me it was attention to detail that mattered and I felt he worked to this belief. I'm very pleased with the results. He also had a good relationship with the nursing team and, I felt, caring about his own admin staff.“

    I have been seeing Mr Kirkpatrick for Botox injections for years. I had tried some specialists including some of the well known names advertised on glossy magazines. But he is the best, in terms of technique and result. He is also caring and pleasant to talk to, as well as professional (he is always on time). And his EA is lovely. This makes it a great customer experience.

    The most extraordinary surgeon you’re ever likely to meet. As well as exceptional in his chosen field he’s also a lovely person. Takes an interest in every aspect of the patient’s life, you feel your overall well being genuinely matters to him. His manner is gentle and kind while having a forensic understanding of the best treatment, potential complications, recovery time. No stone is left unturned, no question left unanswered. I had two surgical procedures, one to remove granulated filler, the other to remove scar tissue. Before each one, consultations were in depth, easy to understand because everything was so clearly explained. The filler was in my left cheek. It required an incision and stitches from near the bridge of my nose to just under the left side of my mouth. Thanks to my insurance company refusing to cover general anaesthetic both these distressing operations were carried out under local. Mr Kirkpatrick made me feel cared for, and 100% confident in him. The stitches were so neat they were admired by other surgeons and doctors. As the area operated on is so exposed - middle of face - I know I’d look very different today had it not been Mr Kirkpatrick who operated on me. I’ve also had a mole removed (abdomen) by Mr Kirkpatrick - this was also painless and neat. I go back twice a year to get botox to forehead and a chat. I could not recommend him more. I trust him absolutely and he’s quite brilliant.

    Charming, reassuring and incredibly patient Mr Kirkpatrick made this a pain-free experience in all senses. He was clear in his explanation and skilful in his operation of the procedure itself, ably assisted by his delightful team of nurses.

    Mr Kirkpatrick was welcoming and quickly put me at ease. He explained the procedure clearly and I felt as if I was in very experienced, professional hands. The appointments all ran on time and the nurses who assisted him were both efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon who cares about giving you the best outcome possible.
