I never thought I would be saying that I enjoyed giving birth to my little girl, but I look back at the experience with very fond and happy memories. And that was all down to the brilliant Birth Team. Richards expertise and humour, coupled with Sarahs warm and comforting support made us feel reassured and safe throughout the whole process. Their level of care was second to none every step of the way; from the initial appointment through to the follow up phone calls checking up on my recovery once we had got home. They are both fantastic people who we will be forever grateful to for bringing our beautiful daughter so safely, calmly and professionally into the world.

Mr S has looked after me through both my pregnancies. Both were very different experiences. My first was an easy ride and he was fabulous, but my second was a different story and where he shone. I was plagued with severe hyperemesis gravidarum throughout my whole pregnancy and Mr Sheridan and his team could not have looked after me better. It being such an underrated experience my GP didn’t take it very seriously however after being admitted into hospital for IV fluids I just solely relied on Dr S to care for me and I’m very lucky I did. All my treatments were explained to me with dignity and all decisions were discussed thoroughly and holistically. He is so invested in his patients and has the greatest bedside manner. The other shinning feature of this doctor is the team he has. He somehow has the most fabulous experts in their fields work with him and that gives you a much more holistic management of care. A great doctor and great man. I’m proud to say that this mans hands were the first to hold my babies.

Mr Sheridan is absolutely outstanding, I cannot praise him highly enough! He is highly professional and very experienced which meant that I was able to trust him completely throughout both of my pregnancies/deliveries, knowing that I was in such capable hands. He is a very warm, kind person and has a brilliant sense of humour which really helped, particularly at times when I was feeling anxious. Furthermore, he explains everything very clearly so you are very clear on what is happening and why. My daughter threw up some green vomit after she was born and had to undergo some tests to ascertain the cause of the problem. This was a very upsetting experience but Mr Sheridan could not have been more supportive which really helped and meant a great deal. I will be forever grateful for all Mr Sheridan has done for us, he's just wonderful!

I have been a patient of Mr Sheridan’s for several years now and I wouldn’t want any other consultant treating me. Richard has both operated and provided ongoing treatment where required and his wonderful bedside manner and chirpy character are most reassuring. I would recommend Richard without reservation to anyone considering or needing this type of medical expertise.

Richard and Sarah are both phenomenal. I've gone to them for both my babies and they've made each experience easy, calm and enjoyable. I instantly felt in safe hands with them; they take time to get to know you, explain everything clearly and make sure that you're happy and confident at all times. They are the best.

Seeing Mr Sheridan is always a pleasure. Apart from his personality (he is so funny!) he is a great doctor, he always explains what he is doing and puts your mind at ease and. After i had my hysterectomy he took me for a walk around the hospital grounds to get me out and about. He also of course performed the procedure perfectly and helped me to prepare for the operation when i was nervous. He is open to any questions, and everything i have experienced with him has been quick and painless (where possible).

Dr Richard Sheridan's work is impeccable! I had a cyst right in the middle of my clitoris and he explained the risks of getting it out but gave me confidence in the fact that he had 40years experience in the field. I eventually did the surgery and everything went well. He expected there would be a scar from the surgery even after complete healing but 6 weeks later, no-one would even know I had anything done. Thank you so much Dr. Sheridan.

A wonderful professional. Great interpersonal skills with a holistic approach to patient care. One in a million gynae ‘s from start to end of my patient experience. Excellent comprehensive follow up throughout before and after surgery, as well as being a top surgical pro. So grateful for the care and attention I received. Keep up the great work and good humour.

A fantastic doctor, who is knowledgable, friendly, professional and carried out my surgery swiftly and efficiently. I can not recommend Dr Sheridan highly enough. Dr Sheridan was a breath of fresh air, giving me clear and concise answers to my questions. He was able to explain the complexity of my situation in language that I understood and in a kind and professional manner. He was both open and upfront about the costs associated with the surgery that I required, and the fact that I may have required two surgeries depending on how I had healed. Following my initial consultation I felt that I had full confidence in Dr Sheridan and choose to self-fund my surgery. I am eternally grateful to Dr Sheridan for his excellent work. Thank you.

Where do I begin?! My experience with Mr. Sheridan and his team was an absolute pleasure from the moment I found out I was pregnant. Being from NYC and having my first child in another country was a very scary moment for me. I had no idea what to expect on how things go in the UK when expecting a child. I knew i wanted to go private but had no idea with who...until I found Mr. Sheridan and Midwife, Sarah. Mr. Sheridan truly made me feel well-looked after and was always available when I needed him. From my first visit with Mr. Sheridan to the last (day of my cesarean) I knew I was in the best hands and he was going to take care of me...and he did. To add to his professionalism, Mr. Sheridan's personality and sense of humor always put me at ease. It was relaxing to have a doctor telling you jokes right before surgery. It just made the atmosphere so much more enjoyable. Thank you, Mr. Sheridan and The Birth Team for making my pregnancy one that I will never forget.

I have just recently had my second child, both under Richard’s care. He offers a relaxed environment where you have 24 hour contact with a dedicated midwife should you need it. I have always felt safe and secure under his care. Both deliveries have been c sections (one emergency) and his after care is second to non. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and his care package to anyone.

I have been looked after by Mr Sheridan for over 22 years and he has seen me through the birth of my three children and various gyny procedures. Mr Sheridan has always put my mind at ease and never once did he make me feel I was asking too many questions or worrying unnecessarily. Always has put my mind at rest and his care, experience, kindness and empathy at times when needed has been outstanding. The loveliest man and I wish him continued success always xxxx

Mr Sheridan was our obstetrician throughout all of my pregnancy and for delivery. From the first appointment, he made us feel comfortable, in safe hands and ensured we understood each step of the pregnancy and then also during labour. I could not recommend him and Sarah Denning (midwife) enough. They went above and beyond. We are extremely grateful to have had them during this time.

Mr Sheridan is absolutely fantastic! My husband and I could not recommend him highly enough. He shows the utmost professionalism and is extremely honest which we valued highly. He especially calmed me down in a couple of testing situations in the late stage of my pregnancy and when needing a C section. Sarah Denning who he works alongside is also phenomenal. Their personal care is second to none. Any issue big or small they were both at the end of the phone for.

I’ve been to Dr Sheridan for both of my two children - the first resulted in an emergency cesarian and the second was planned. From my very first appointment he made me feel at ease and comfortable, and there wasn’t a moment where I ever felt nervous or unprepared under his care. As a high risk patient who had a few complications (such as kidney stones) Dr Sheridan personally called me up to three times a day for a few days just to check in and see how I was feeling. Both deliveries (although the first was an emergency) were trauma and stress free and I would - and have- recommended him to anyone looking for an OB. He goes above and beyond the call of duty and is a first class medical practitioner.

He was absolutely fantastic! I would definitely recommend him. My wife has a medical phobia, and Mr Sheridan made her feel at ease from the moment he met her. No other healthcare professional has been able to do that before.
