    I received fantastic care from Mr Singh throughout my treatment. He was always very professional and reassuring and gave honest and clear advice in relation to the removal of the giant cell tumour from the tendon in my foot. I was referred to Mr Singh by another consultant due to Mr Singh's skill and experience with such procedures. I am delighted to have made a fast recovery and am already back to my normal activity levels.

    From our initial meeting, I was put at ease and understood the options to release my calf muscle. The operation went well and I was soon back in my room. Physio training on using a crutch followed and I was released later that afternoon with no pain in my foot. Physiotherapy sessions followed and I saw Mr Singh twice when he checked my leg and let me be discharged. Overall, a very pleasant experience - depending on your viewpoint of course. I commend him for his professionalism and thoughtful explanations before and after the procedure.

    Mr Singh is the absolute best and most compassionate medic I've encountered in my entire lifetime. After 2 years of agony from a 'healed' fracture, which was causing immense pain, it took him the best of 5 minutes of actively listening to me to say 'I believe it's the nerve'; whereas I'd repeatedly been told 'it's in your mind' whereas my nerve was trapped in between my bone all that while. Following surgery, I'm now able to walk with reduced pain, and that's all down to Mr Singh's compassionate and professional care. I cannot thank Mr Singh enough, will never forget him, and would gladly recommend him to anyone I know who needs foot or ankle treatment. I'm so grateful I found my way to Mr Singh, ultimately.

    Following a car accident 5 years ago and despite trying many forms of treatment over the years, it is wonderful that finally I have a correct diagnosis plus a treatment plan that at the moment is working very well. Mr Singh was very friendly and put me at complete ease and, unlike some recent experiences, took my symptoms seriously and understood why, after so many years I was so anxious. His explanations and suggested treatment plan is going well but I understand there are other options as well if needed. I am extremely grateful for this. Thank you Mr Singh.

    After years of ankle pain and various treatments Mr Singh performed an ankle fusion at the end of February. I can now walk without pain and have far more movement in my foot than I was expecting. Mr Singh explains everything very clearly is exceedingly professional and knowledge and has a wonderful manner which instilled confidence. Whilst the recovery from this operation takes a while it is so worth it. I would recommend Mr Singh to anyone without hesitation

    I had lots of questions which Sam always patiently answered in terms that I could actually understand. I always knew that I was in good hands and that he had made me aware of everything that I needed to know. His manner during my operation was top class, as he obviously knew that I was nervous. I have done everything that he told me to do in terms of post op exercise etc and am extremely happy with how things have gone and am now mobile and completely pain free, which is a massive improvement from before I had the surgery. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

Without his superb skills and that of his team and the aftercare from physio therapists I certainly wouldn't have the quality of life I have today. Priceless - I'm so grateful. Please pass my message to him.

    After literally years of hoping the pain would just go away and then months of trying to get to see the right person it was such a relief when I saw Sam and he got straight to the heart of the problem in one appointment and calmly explained my options. I really liked having web access to a detailed explanation once I got home as well, to fill in any blanks I had from all the questions I meant to ask and forgot. Everything from there went so smoothly I really didn't ever get to worry, from the operation to the recovery and even working around social distancing to ensure I got a proper follow up. I literally cannot fault the care I received from Sam and his team.

    It will be 8 years since my accident this year and as you know all to well I am not one for sitting still! These last few years I have been busy working and travelled a few times earlier in after my surgeries but what I wanted to share with you is what I done on the 2nd on January this year. Me and my boyfriend climbed a mountain! We climbed Cadair Idris in Wales I wanted to prove to myself I could be normal and I could push my limits yet again. It was hard work! (more because I was very unfit) but my ankle / fleg (foot and a leg) coped very well. It was 3 miles up and 3 back down. The recommended time was 2hrs 30mins in each direction. We managed 2hrs 20mins so we beat the time! I hurt alot afterwards as I have to alter my walking style when going uphill but I made it! I just wanted to let you know what I had achieved and to say thank you. My ankle / fleg made it up a mountain! Thank you for helping me live again and giving me the ability to have these experiences I am so grateful for your surgery.
