“During lockdown I was in extreme pain and tried various home help remedies- unsuccessfully. In desperation I contacted Aviva who arranged an consultation with Mr Warren. Fortunately it was a face to face consultation and he prescribed the correct medication. He explained his diagnosis and talked me through the medication. Within a week I was so much better. I was very embarrassed but he put me at ease . Thank you “

Mr Stephen Warren is a Consultant General, Colorectal & Laparoscopic Surgeon based in London, UK.

By 1991 he had performed his first laparoscopic cholecystectomy and as a young consultant was awarded a national scholarship to gain experience at the renowned Cleveland Clinic in USA for a 3 month sabbatical.

He was the recipient of a Master of Surgery MS in Surgery for his published thesis from the University of London.

He has a specialist interest in all abdominal and bowel complaints. He is a highly skilled laparoscopic surgeon and applies his skills to a wide variety of surgical operations, both elective planned and emergencies.

In his personal time he enjoys oil painting,  road cycling, and football.

Mr Warren spent time listening to my symptoms and understanding my concerns. He gave clear and concise explanations of the possible causes of my pain and how these may be treated. He has an excellent way of communicating with you to ensure that you feel heard, unlike many doctors I have seen. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an empathetic, highly skilled and knowledgable consultant. In addition, his medical secretary Emma was extremely helpful throughout the process and ensured that I received the consultation letters with amazing speed following meeting with Mr Warren. A fantastic experience all round!

Mr Warren welcomed me in a friendly and professional manner. I explained my symptoms while he listened patiently. He explained how he would examine me and put me at ease about the process. After he examined me he carefully explained the possible causes of my symptoms and the way forward. He answered all my questions clearly and patiently. Then, he wrote a prescription for me and carefully explained how I should apply the things he listed. Before I went to see Mr Warren I was in great pain but within 24 hours of seeing him and taking the prescription to the pharmacy I began to feel more comfortable.

Thank you so much for completing an online review, and for your kind words.

Fast, efficient and thorough progress from presentation to surgery, this man is top of his game. He sees the bigger picture and leaves no stone unturned in arriving at the correct diagnosis. Would say I am proud of my scars from his keyhole surgery.. but I can see them anymore. They are tiny and faded. I was sent home from another hospital by a different specialist in his field and told to alter my diet and take paracetamol. I can honestly say Mr Warren probably saved my life with is efficient skilled care.

We were quite anxious when Stanley found out that he had to have a hernia operation. At our first consultation with Mr Warren he immediately put us at ease in carefully explaining the procedure. He told us that he wanted to operate at the Wellington Hospital as it had the back up - should it be needed- we informed him that this hospital was not our plan. He wrote to our GP and cardiologist for the necessary information and was able to get permission to operate at the Wellington. The operation and recovery went well. Mr Warren checked Stanley two and four weeks after the operation. He has a very kind bedside manner. He has a calming way and he listens to you. He explained every step of the way for the procedure. Stanley has low functioning kidneys and he took every precaution for his safety before, during and after the operation. We cannot thank Mr Warren enough.

The care and attention I received from Mr Warren was exceptional from initial consultation through to surgery and post-operative care. His wealth of experience and command of his specialism was evident in the consultations with full, easy to understand explanations of the condition and treatment path including detailed knowledge of research carried out in his field of expertise. I felt that no question was too trivial to ask. I found his bedside manner to be consistently gentle, compassionate and reassuring. Throughout the whole experience with Mr Warren I never felt anything less than being in the best possible hands.

Mr Warren was brilliant from start to finish. He was friendly, helpful and took the time to explain to me what was going on at every stage of my treatment. Stephen Warren was probably the best consultant I have ever had dealings in my 50 years, he is certainly the least arrogant has a brilliant calm manner when dealing with me. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Stephen Warren as a brilliant physician, who I know made sure I got the very best of care.

Mr Stephen Warren is a consultant. Who makes the patient feel at.ease very quickly. He is thorough and efficient and is aware of his patients’ worries and possible fears early on in the consultation. He is a surgeon but is a believer in natural remedies for gut problems of which he is an expert. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a first class Consultant Surgeon in his particular field of ???? and his knowledge of natural medicine is very helpful.

Sadly (for me!) Mr Warren was not the first, second or even third doctor I had had to see for this condition. He was not even the first consultant within the same department at the same (private) hospital! Thankfully (again for me) I'm thrilled to say that he was the last. A horrible medical issue that had plagued me for years and had, for over half a year, been such an interruption to my daily that it had made each day a true misery is, thanks EXCLUSIVELY to him, finally in my rear view mirror, it would seem. Thoroughly personable, good bedside manner, explanations, all of that, certainly, but truthfully that is all insignificant bluster in the great scheme of things. Efficacy is ultimately the be-all and end-all and that is what he was able to offer, that it would appear few others were. Certainly none that I got to see, either through the NHS or privately.

Dr Warren and his team have performed surgery on me in November 2019. I am very pleased with the results and the whole experience; he’s very knowledgeable and patient, and does not mind having to explain the various options in detail. I’m also very happy with the results of the operation and would not hesitate to recommend Dr Warren to anyone in need of his services.

Mr Warren is a great doctor. I have seen Mr Warren on a few separate occasions and his diagnosis always comes with a detailed and easy to digest explanation, which is well received. He performed a key hole appendectomy for me around 10 years ago and the scar was minimal post-surgery and is almost non-existent now. I would recommend Mr Warren to anybody and everybody!

He was kindness itself and very re-assuring....and ready to laugh at my fears. As a femail patient, I loved the idea of having another lady present at the same time, usually you have to wait until they can find a spare nurse to be your chaperone, although it never crossed my mind that a chaperone would ever be necessary.

Mr Stephen Warren is a thoroughly professional Consultant. I have been under his guidance for nearly 4 years. He has a very calming way about him and makes you feel very much at ease, as you can be, when you have just been told that you have Cancer. The treatments that I was put on were Chemo and Radiation. Thereafter 3 monthly check ups for 2 years consisting of MRI Scans and Blood Tests. These are now cut back to every 6 months. I am very grateful to Mr Warren for extending my life and enabling me to meet and play with my grandson and thoroughly enjoy life again. I travel from South Africa for our consultation in London.

I have been seeing Mr Warren for many years as I have regular bouts of diverticulitis. I had actually seen a few Consultants before I was referred to Mr Warren and thankfully he was able to diagnose me quickly. I have always found him to be very caring and understanding and explains things clearly rather than using long medical terms which I struggle to understand. He spends so much time going through everything and makes you feel he understands what your problems are. I have also found the ladies that work in his office extremely helpful as well which helps when you are not feeling so good yourself. I would highly recommend Mr Warren.
