“We had such a lovely experience from start to finish, Mr Jacob is so attentive and caring especially as it was our 3 year old daughter he was caring for. I can not express how having the trust in her care made this operation so much easier. Mr Jacob is truly one of a kind and we were so lucky to have him as our doctor.“

    Explanation (5/5)
    My overall experience with Mr Jacob was excellent. He is very professional, and explains all aspects of the surgery so I understood completely what was going to happen. He answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. He is calm, and therefore makes you calm in a stressful situation. He is caring, ensuring stitching my face was discreate and minimal so not be visible, which was very much appreciated. Also and importantly for me he ensured my other health issues were considered and discussed appropriately with the anesthetist. Whom he arranged to speak with me before the surgery. Overall the best experience, I would highly recommend Mr Jacobs.
