    Dr Sibtain is a constant support and I trust his understanding of me as an individual and therefore in him finding the treatments which best suits my condition. He is a gentleman. His manner is kind, gentle and is deeply knowledgable of his craft. I was immediately struck by him greeting us at the doors of the lift.... no knocking at the ‘Emperors door’ for the thumbs up or down! Dr Sibtain takes away this fear, he sits with me, not behind his desk, as we talk through the latest scan or blood test result, and together we find a way forward. I have had both Cyberknife treatment and chemotherapy treatment in tablet form while he has been my Primary Oncologist. I trust in his knowledge. He listens, and am so grateful for his kind and supportive manner and for his undoubted expertise.
