    Dr Koa-Wing is a colleague who I regularly refer patients both on the private and NHS sector. He has a very busy NHS practice and is very experienced and performs a high volume of procedures. He is very kind, calm and simply brilliant in what he does. The feedback from both the patients I have referred to and what I see is exceptional. I would highly recommend Dr Koa-Wing.
