Our patients say . . .
Thank you so much for giving me back the enjoyment of eating and drinking everything again. For so long my acid reflux has dominated my life, making it rather miserable at times but since my operation I am one hundred per cent better and can’t believe the difference it has made, it’s just wonderful.
I appreciated the kindly and sensitive way you receive me and conducted the consultation.
I would just like to say a huge thank you for the exceptional support I received from you. I’m happy to say I am eating normally again and am totally reflux free. Keep on doing the wonderful job you do.
You were so very kind and patient listening to my doubts, and although I know that I had to make the decision myself, you said just enough to enable me to make the right one.
I would like to congratulate you and your team who performed my gallbladder removal it has been a completely painless experience with no side effects what so ever.
A quick note to say thank you for my cholecystectomy – absolutely brilliant.
I just want to say a huge BIG thank you to for doing my hiatus hernia operation – I feel like a new person and am so grateful for all your care and consideration that has made such a difference for me.
I must tell you how wonderful it is not to suffer constant acid reflux anymore it’s amazing. Thank you for everything.
Further to surgery to remove my gallbladder. I am writing to say a grateful thank you. I returned to work after two weeks, and free of the frightening pain that I had been experiencing prior to surgery and am just feeing so much better!
My surgery has been more successful than I ever hoped for. From the time I woke up in the theatre recovery are to find I was able to take deep breath. I had not realised that I did not have the freedom to breathe deeply before the surgery. I simply thought that I was unfit as I was unable to exercise comfortably swimming, walking or Pilates. I feel so well and my quality of life has improved beyond any hopes.
NHS patients are seen at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, a modern facility in the Wonford area of Exeter. There is limited on-site parking, and the Hospital can be easily reached by bus, taxi, or park-and-ride.
