    Mark is very helpful, but I was informed beforehand which made the discussions easier. Full information on how the procedure went could have been shared earlier, but was received a few weeks later. I didn’t receive a full explanation of the issue, which would have been helpful.

    I first met Mark Emberton while taking notes for a friend, who also had prostate cancer, on a zoom call. I was impressed by his concise and considered responses to my friends’ questions. When I subsequently met him face to face for my own consultation it was a similarly good experience. Mark carried out my Nanoknife procedure 3 weeks ago at Kind Edward VII and before, during and after was kind and supportive. I’ve no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mark Emberton.

    Professor Emberton is calm , reassuring , gives clear explanations and has an excellent bedside manner . It's now 4 months after my procedure and so far the outcomes have been exactly as Professor Emberton said they would be. I feel absolutely fine and would unhesitatingly recommend that anyone with prostate cancer should consult Professor Emberton to see if their condition is suitable for the Nano Knife procedure by him .

    Professor Emberton gave me a very clear explanation of why the nanoknife procedure was appropriate for my condition, how it would benefit my future health, and how it would allow me to carry on my life in future without any major disruption or diminution or deterioration, by comparison with more invasive prostate-ectomy procedures. Everything went exactly as had been explained to me, and I am very pleased with the results.
