“I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Mr Young for treatment of a lacerated finger. From my initial phone calls with his secretary, through the initial greeting by one of his nurses, through the consultation, treatment and follow-up, my experience with Mr Young was entirely positive. Everyone in his clinic treated me with kindness and made great efforts to ensure I was comfortable and relaxed (even as I received painful anesthesia shots!). Mr Young explained his diagnosis and treatment plan carefully and clearly, pausing to allow me to ask questions. He and his nurses took great care to ensure the environment was sterile to avoid the risk of infection through the wound. I am confident my finger will heal well thanks to the excellent treatment I received. I would recommend Mr Young and his staff without any reservations.“

    Extremely positive experience with excellent results. In pre-surgical consultations Mr Young clearly explained the surgical options, explaining for each what could reasonably be expected. Results were good and natural-looking. My Young was generous with his time, and genuinely cares about his patients. I would recommend Mr Young.

    Richard is real delight, and I’m so happy I chose him as the surgeon to perform my otoplasty. He made sure I was very well looked after, and was extremely thorough at all stages of the process. He’s a truly lovely and talented man, and I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you so much for exceeding expectations with my ear correction, I’m delighted!
