    Mr Hicks was very lovely experience. He was extremely professional, took his time explaining all aspects ,then arranging for me to see the other consultants to find the diagnosis, after my last appointment he has referred me to the appropriate specialist now who has now started my treatment and recovery. I was sent originally to Mr Hicks because GP thought it was a vascular problem .., it wasn’t .Nevertheless Mr Hicks went out of his way to ensure I received the procedures and consultant .Would highly recommended if you need excellent care and treatment . Must add his secretary Sue was always a pleasure and nothing was too much trouble for her.Many thanks .

    Patient seen for:
    Mr Hicks provided a very clear explanation for the cause of my medical problem and also for the corrective procedure. Having raised some concerns about the side-effects I was experiencing post-surgery, Mr Hicks called me personally to talk through my concerns and to reassure me. That was hugely appreciated and gave me all the reassurance I needed. I recovered fully in line with expected recovery time.
