Mr Peter Wilson was exceptional. He provided very clear, accessible advice and used examples and drawings to explain both the situation and the treatment. He was very patient and our time never felt hurried or rushed. All options were explained in a similarly comprehensive manner and at no point did Mr Wilson seek to influence my choice. During treatment, Mr Wilson came to see me before and after the procedure and had an excellent bedside manner. Overall I would thoroughly recommend Dr Wilson and would not hesitate to contact him again for treatment.

Mr. Willson was chosen for me by my healthcare provider and I came to see him due to an hernia I had for quite a while and pain which I thought was caused by this. Mr. Willson was very friendly and welcoming at my first consultation and took a further look at my symptoms. I felt in the best hands at all times and would recommend him to friends and family. He explained every step he took and the procedure to fix my hernia. He checked up on me before surgery and at different times after surgery to ensure my recovery goes well and as supposed to. All in all i received the best treatment.

Mr Willson's approach to patient care was at all times exemplary and extremely professional. He was very clear in setting out the different options available to me at the outset, with the pros and cons of each, and totally clear with his responses to my questions at all times in the process. I was in no doubt I was in extremely capable hands, and so it has proved to be as my full recovery has gone exactly to schedule. I do not hesitate to recommend Mr Willson, not just as an extremely capable and experienced consultant, but also as someone who reassures with his friendly demeanour and is manifestly motivated by the best interests of his patients.

It was a stressful time for me and Mr Willson put me fully at ease both before and after my hernia repair operation. He took time to explain the procedure and the risks and my recovery timetable. His friendly manner calmed any nerves that I had. My recovery was surprisingly quick and in the main relatively pain free. Both Mr Willson and the team at the New Victoria hospital made for a pleasant stay.

I had my surgery for my abdominal hernia with surgeon Dr Peter Willson.Due to my many historical operations previously with other doctors, for me this particular operation seemed to be more complicated . However Dr Willson from the day I have consulted him from 1st day until today (post operation consultation )has been a great good experience. Dr Willson and his team made sure they understood my previous complication, prepared for my operation so that post-operation I had no discomfort at all.I would highly recommend Dr Willson and will see Dr Willson for any future new issues . Thank you Dr Willson and team.

Overall very positive. From my first consultation to the day of the surgery I felt very comfortable and relaxed in the hands of Mr Wilson - he is both very personable and has a calming demeanour. He thoroughly explained to me the issue and the surgery it would require on my first visit, and managed my expectations regarding recovery, well. The day of my surgery went well and I felt relaxed and calm. Post surgery I was surprised by my improvement on a daily basis and have recovered extremely well. Very pleased with such a positive experience.

Mr Wilson was a consummate professional. This was my first in-patient experience and if anything I fear the bar has been set too high. Any concerns I had about surgery were allayed by clear explanations and the calming ressurance i was in expert hands. I trusted Mr Wilson implicitly, would seek his expertise again and would readily recommend him to others.

I had keyhole surgery to repair a hernia. I found Mr Wilson to be professional and informative. The confidence he inspired during my initial consultation with him was not misplaced. I elected to have keyhole surgery, which was performed in one day. Obviously I am having to take things easy, but I was able to continue working from home the day after the op (this was NOT recommended by Mr Wilson, but just pointing out that it was possible). With the help of the medication provided to me by the hospital, I suffered only slight discomfort. It has been three weeks since the op and I’m feeling almost completely recovered. I am happy to highly recommend Mr Wilson.

First saw Mr Willson for a second opinion. He was very much more helpful than the original consultation so I decided to ask him to undertake the operation. This went very smoothly indeed. Mr Willson was very patient and clear in his explanations and called my wife as soon as he came out of theatre. The follow up consultation was just as comprehensive and clear. First rate all round.
