Explanation

Heavily disabled and in pain from an accidental injury I was fortunate enough to undergo a microdiscectomy with Mr Mendoza. The Pre-operative consultation and care was superb. Surgery left me almost pain free and fully active twelve hours later. Slight residual pain resolved in 72 hours. Seven years later I am fully fit and pain free leading a very active lifestyle. When recently querying the advisability of epidural anaesthetic for an unrelated minor surgery I had a reply within 2 hours. I am deeply grateful for his skill and professionalism. Many, many thanks.

Explanation

I was exceedingly impressed with Nigel's expertise and approach. In particular, his willingness to take time with me (and he took considerable time...much more than I could reasonably have expected) was much appreciated. In addition, he displayed patience in providing me with detailed responses to my various queries and indulged my habit of taking written notes. In fact, he even seemed unperturbed when I emailed him follow up questions, to which he responded to promptly and with a reassuring conviction.

Explanation

I received an outstanding level of care from Mr Mendoza. He explained everything in simple terms, going straight to the point. I felt in good hands and that every step he took was for my own good. He smoothly arranged all the exams and consultations I needed in preparation for a craniotomy. After every consultation he had the shrewdness to communicate the outcome by letter to me and to the consultant who referred me. Mr Mendoza always replied to my queries in a timely and exhaustive manner, even when contacted on a Sunday morning! Amazing dedicated neurosurgeon. Mr Mendoza has been so good to me that he is known as "Super Mendoza" among my friends!

Explanation

I have had two consultations with Mr Mendoza and he was thorough , informative, supportive and reassuring at both meetings. He was very clear with his explanation of the procedures that I might need and the possible outcomes . I appreciated his thoughtful and measured approach and his involvement of a multi disciplinary team to ensure my slightly unusual case was reviewed and managed for the best results . I do not require surgery but had this been necessary I feel I would have been in the very best hands .
