“Peter Bullock is clear in explaining the position and giving confidence about outcomes. He has operated on my back and my head in recent years, both with conspicuous success. His rapid response to an urgent enquiry just before Christmas was exemplary. I cannot recommend him more highly. He is a super star. “

    I believe the success of my surgical intervention was not solely due to the extremely high skill of the Surgeon: but also, the whole lead up and preparation was carried out with the utmost care and attention to detail. Pre and post surgery follow ups were accurate and informative and all my concerns were addressed and all my questions were answered. I feel very fortunate that Mr Bullock was the Leader of the team that took care of me during the whole period. I remain very grateful.

    Peter Bullock is an excellent surgeon. He is extremely competent, experienced and thorough. I was very nervous as this was my first surgery ever (and a complex one) but having such a competent surgeon who I trusted helped me to stay positive and get on with the procedure. My pituitary surgery went well and I’m back to my normal life. I’m eternally grateful Peter Bullock for his excellent work and expertise.

    I found Mr Bullock incredibly reassuring, explaining everything in detail with a very clear treatment plan. My surgery went very well and the care was exceptional. Mr Bullock visited me daily whilst I was recovering on the Hospital ward & I kept me well informed at all times of my progress. I can’t thank Mr Bullock enough, as well as his team and the staff that looked after me so well.

    My wife underwent major surgery with Mr Bullock to remove a rare pineal tumour that was slowly growing. We researched extensively (including other countries) to identify a top consultant neurosurgeon who specialises in pineal tumours. We are so happy to have found Mr Bullock. His specialist experience in pineal tumours and effusive peer recommendation (from other top neurosurgeons) were the principal reasons for initially consulting him. From our first call, we felt relieved and comfortable, albeit anxious at the prospect of such intricate surgery and consequent potential risks. We will forever be grateful for Mr Bullock’s meticulous expertise and perseverance to fully excise the tumour without any collateral damage. The end-to-end experience under was of the utmost professionalism. His support team are also superb. The warm, personal attention and kind approach provided by Dr George Donaldson throughout Mimi’s admission period was extremely welcome and made such a difference. The ICU team and all staff on the Ward were also highly professional, attentive and very much appreciated. Within days, my wife’s recovery was well underway, thankfully free of any neurological symptoms, progressing slowly but surely toward a return to full normalcy. We will always be eternally grateful to Mr Bullock, who we have no hesitation in highly recommending.
