    Overall a fantastic experience. I saw one doctor first who suggested to cut my finger off and put it on a screw. Which sounded terrifying so I refused. I then found Mr Ray, who looked at the leg and said that was no need for such a procedure. We agreed on a keyhole operation which went fantasticallly and within 2 weeks I was walking fine! He is a fantastic surgeon and he priorities the minim invasion procedures to help his patients. Words can’t describe how happy I am to discover Mr Ray, as he helped to heal my leg with minimal invasion. So if you are in doubt, just have a chat with him. I can guarantee that if there is a safe, minimum invasion procedure to fix your problem, he will find it.

    From our initial meeting and all the way through my operation and subsequent follow up treatment everything has gone extremely well. Robbie was recommended to me by a family member who has very recently undergone surgery performed by him. On our initial consultation Robbie very quickly diagnosed the problem with my foot, and laid out the various options available to me. We discussed them together reaching our decision which was to undergo an operation. This was done at a date and time convenient to me. The operation went very well, and the treatment I received before, during and following were excellent. At no point since the surgery, and throughout my recovery have I had any pain whatsoever. I would not hesitate to recommend Robbie to anyone needing his services. As well as being a superb surgeon, he is personable and affable.

    Mr Ray was fantastic and so helpful. He was calm and patient with me, ensured that I had all the information I needed and showed me clearly all the after-care for me to do at home. As a result, my injury has healed really well. Mr Ray also is very pleasant and has a kind manner that put me at ease when I came to see him. He was highly recommended to me by another consultant and I can see why. I am very grateful for all his help and support.
