    A charming, knowledgeable consultant who was super helpful, explaining clearly to me, and providing relevant comment on my condition, going over and above to check on my overall wellbeing not just the condition I was seeing him for. It was refreshing to meet someone who was 'interested' and had time for me. I would highly recommend this consultant.

    Is a colleague

    "Simon is an excellent clinician and a trusted and valued colleague. He offers patients a holistic approach and likes to involve the entire multi-disciplinary team. He is conservative and will not rush patients to surgery unless really needed. He has a lovely bedside manner and rapidly establishes rapport with patients. I would highly recommend Simon to patients."
