“From the first day I meet Tom when he told me I was to young not to be given a chance he gave me hope. I have had and still have total faith in his judgement with regards to my treatment and I feel secure that he will do what’s in my best interest. He explains himself well and his caring nature and his humour is part of his bedside manner. He has a very good team to support him and I feel safe in their care.“

    He has been truly wonderful- explaining complicated stuff is an easy to understand manner, his enthusiasm gave me hope when there was precious little around, not hiding behind abruptness or remoteness. Also reliably good humoured.

    Dr Newsom - Davis is delightful. From the first moment we met him (via zoom) nervous, worried and scared of the unknown, he put us ease. He explained everything clearly, and honestly so that my husband, the patient, and myself(wife) were able to face the imminent treatment and outcome. He has always been honest with us, reassuring when appropriate and incredibly enthusiastic about good results. We trust his judgement without question.

    I am so lucky and feel blessed to be under the care of Dr Newsom-Davis. From the moment I met him he put me at ease and I knew I had found exactly the right person to help with my journey. He understands me completely, really listens and explains everything very well. I feel so safe and secure and trust him implicitly. I certainly would not be where I am today physically or mentally without my wonderful doctor.
