Our patients say . . .
After nearly four years of pain and sickness every time I ate or drank, I can now do both normally without any sign of pain or sickness at all. It has made a tremendous difference to my life.
Thank you so very much. Not to be refluxing, having a sore throat and cough and to be able to sleep lying down is wonderful and has given me back a normal life.
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!
I must tell you how wonderful it is not to suffer constant acid reflux anymore it’s amazing. Thank you for everything.
A quick note to say thank you for my cholecystectomy – absolutely brilliant.
Following my Heller Cardiomyotomy I am pleased to tell you that at this moment it would appear to be 100% successful. It is no exaggeration to say it has transformed my life.
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.
My husband and I would like to thank you for all you effort curing my hernia problem … my breathing is much improved. I look forward to a much better quality of life.
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.
Just a fantastic team! Dedicated! Patient priority! Superb in every way! Get checked! Get results! Get a plan! Only one life! Get results!
