“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.“

    Mr. Peter Bullock, What a Star. He looked after me for my Pituitary adenoma condition, explained everything to me in terms I could understand, and gave me every confidence that he and his team would operate and remove the tumour and that I had every chance of a normal life thereafter. His work with the other specialists he organised, from ophthalmology to optometry and from MRI to Endocrinology all worked seamlessly and they provided their individual highly specialised and highly skilled support as a well coordinated team, always administered by a superb PA who always knew what was going on, with whom and when and, why. When it came to operation itself, all went very smoothly from arriving at The London Clinic, through to all the hospital support he has in place for his practice, with a specialised General Practice Doctor managing Mr. Bullock's patients in his own speciality ward and all the surgery specialists including anaesthesia, other surgeons including top flight ENT,, great nursing,pre op care , post op recovery and then full post op care. Mr. Bullock came to see me before the operation and afterwards, several times, and on every occasion I felt really well looked after in what could have been a very vulnerable feeling, but was not, because of his care and sensitivity . After a week I was discharged when came to see me again, and for the four follow up sets of tests and visits with him, on every occasion he managed my time with him so as to give confidence and reassurance second to none. Irrespective of his extraordinary knowledge and skill, Mr. Bullock would be highly successful in any field of endeavour because "he can walk with Kings and Princes yet not lose the common touch". Thank you Peter so much for what you have done for me, I will never forget it, nor my gratitude to you.

    I have been seeing Mr Bullock for the past 15 years. He has been nothing but a thorough gentlemen and an amazing surgeon! He is polite, kind, supportive, intelligent, and great at what he does. He always explains everything in a calm, reassuring and positive manner. He is open to answering questions and allays any fears that you may have. He has operated on me twice successfully and continues to monitor me on a regular basis. He always goes above and beyond in caring for the patient and their entire family. I would go as far as saying that he is a part of my family. We all adore him and wish him all the best always!

    Mr Bullock saw me through the toughest time of my life - he is the inspiration, the heart and the coordinator of a wonderful team. He explained everything so well - he is an amazing surgeon - he managed to remove the whole tumor and he was so thoughtful of my family as well as myself. I am so grateful that I was lucky enough to be under his watch.

    What I wanted was to see someone who would say, "look, this is serious, but it can be dealt with and I'm confident I can do that for you," and that's exactly what happened. I felt that to be absolutely true, and you need that when you are - quite literally - putting your life into someone else's hands.

    When you have a, potentially, frightening or even life threatening illness, having someone like Peter Bullock to guide you through the remediation is all you need. A tremendously calm, articulate and very personable gentleman, he has an excellent bedside manner. The issues and treatment options are clearly explained, aftercare advice issued and all without drama - the whole experience was (mad as it sounds) a pleasure!

    I had the pleasure of being referred to Mr Bullock in March 2019, following the shock diagnosis of 2 meningiomas. I have always found him to be very open, and calm in his approach to me - and when I was in Hospital before, during and after surgery he demonstrated a wonderful bedside manner. All the nursing staff also reaffirmed this. His post op care was exceptional, and should I need to be operated on again for any other Neurological issue, I would always ask for him to treat me - and have recommend him to others in my situation.
