    Dr Ray is a fantastic consultant and surgeon, really knows his stuff! I have had surgery on both my feet by him. Waited a year after the first surgery on my left foot then my right. I felt that considering I was going to lose the ability to walk properly for two years I couldn't of been in better hands. Listening to and following through on the advice he had given me helped me to heal quickly. I could run after two years now I am about to start roller skating !

    If I could choose a consultant Mr Ray would be my first choice. He obviously is a true gentleman and gains your trust and respect very quickly. He fully explained the implications of my surgery and a realistic outcome. I would not have any issues trusting Mr Ray should I need surgery again. It was a pleasure meeting him.

    I had been struggling to walk for a couple of years and with two young sons I just couldn’t keep up. I saw Mr Ray and once it was decided that surgery was the best option he took the time to explain in great detail and gave me realistic expectations as to how long the recovery time would be. His chosen anaesthetist was also excellent taking his time to explain what he was doing and why. The surgery was just over 2 hours and I had no pain whatsoever despite having my heel bone moved and tendon repaired. Each outpatient visit I only saw Mr Ray which was reassuring, he support staff at both hospitals were very kind and helpful. I knew that should I have any problems or questions I could contact Mr Ray for help. Should I have to have the other ankle done in the future I would have no hesitation in requesting Mr Ray as surgeon again. Thank you Mr Ray for everything!

    This was my first operation and Mr Ray took the time to explain all my options to help me make the right decision. He was patient and professional at all times. It is now 4 months post op and I've healed remarkable well with minimal scarring much to Mr Ray's credit.

    Mr Ray made me feel at ease with my procedure. he was very informative on what was going to happen during the procedure. He spent time making sire that i understood everything and that i was happy with what was going to happen. after the procedure Mr Ray was very prompt in seeing me after to make sure that everything was ok and that i had no concerns. The aftercare that Mr Ray game me on my follow up appointments was exceptional he was very caring and again very informative of what will happen as my recovery continued over the next few weeks, which made me feel at ease at different points of my recovery as Mr Ray had gone through everything with me it reassured me that it was nothing out of the ordinary that i was experiencing.

    Having my operation with Mr Ray was a wonderful experience. All aspects of the procedure were explained as to what would happen and what I would expect afterwards which gave me great comfort in having toe fusion. I can now play golf without pain which I suffered from for 10 years prior to the operation.

    From the start, a painful, severely damaged ankle, to the finish, a fused, pain free ankle, Mr Ray and his magnificent, super friendly team have been excellent. Highly informative about every aspect of the treatment, with every assistance and encouragement offered throughout the post op regime.The operation itself turned out to be hugely successful, pain free and carried out in 5 star hotel luxury. Yesterday after 13 weeks Mr Ray cleared me to do whatever I want, including driving. A big, big Thank You to Mr Ray and his Magnificent, Super Friendly team.
