    Had a consultation with Mr Christian Brown to get a second opinion on my fathers prostate cancer diagnosis and the treatment plan that he had been recommended as he lives abroad. Mr Brown was excellent, you can tell he is a real expert in his field, a very warm and genuine bedside manner and he and his PA Camilla can’t be recommended highly enough it. They bother were exceptional to deal with, very efficient and can’t recommend them highly enough. I didn’t realise getting a second opinion like this would be so easy. Very reassuring.

    Mr Brown was incredibly thorough in his investigation following referral from a BUPA Health Assessment; he was able to see me quickly, and was able to book in appropriate follow up and procedures rapidly. He explained everything that was happening, and kept me fully informed and informed, explaining in simple terms the medical terminology. He was incredibly reassuring from the outset, and while always subject to relevant tests, gave me realistic likelihood of outcomes etc. His bedside manner where there was a need for a procedure was professional but friendly, always making sure I knew what was happening, and explaining what he was seeing - meaning there was no wait for any results. In these more difficult COVID times, there were options to have phone consultation where it made sense.

    I was very happy to obtain a clinical opinion from Mr Brown who was polite and helpful in the little time we had. I was disappointed in the diagnosis of chronic pelvic pain syndrome of course; as this merely describes the symptoms with no real cause or prognosis for me to work on, or indeed a way forward to alleviate the painful symptoms I have. Though I have to see what the referral to Kings pain management team brings of course. I have already had two proceedures abandoned by two different consultants at the last minute so I am not hopeful on this score. However, I am grateful to Camilla Holtet for all her help in setting up the consultation, and to Mr Brown for his time and opinion.

    From the beginning of my diagnosis Mr Brown and his team have been amazing. Everything was explained to me in detail and in a way I understood. Nothing was too much trouble, whenever I needed answers to a particular question I could email over and someone would come back to me without delay. His Secretary Camilla was a star again would always respond to emails and the team at Devonshire House were caring, considerate and very kind. I was looked after so well in Hospital by the all the staff team.

    I feel incredibly fortunate that Mr Brown was my consultant. From the start of my prognosis, he took time to explain my options and the consequences of each one. He described the procedure and after care in a very clear and precise way so I fully understood exactly what was going to happen. After a successful operation Mr Brown continues to be fully supportive and approachable.

From day one, he was very clear with my diagnosis and the best procedure for my case while discussing the other options and why the option he proposed was the best. He answered all my questions and concerns and gave me all the time I needed. When the surgery was delayed because of Covid-19, he called me and we had a phone consultation and he reassured me that in my case it is ok to wait. The surgery went on smoothly with no pain afterwards. I was well prepared on how to take care of myself after surgery. I am very thankful for all the care I received. I highly recommend Mr. Christian Brown.

    I have had the best experience under the care of Mr Brown. Right from the pre operation consultations to the post operation brief. He has exhibited a very thorough understanding of my prostrate and bladder conditions. He explained to me in depth the recommended green laser procedure as well as the likely expectations after surgery. So far my recovery is on track as per the explained protocols. The flow rate has greatly improved and the urgency and frequency decreased. I Trust that the recovery will continue as per the predicted path. I will heartily recommend Mr Brown to my friends and colleagues. Regards
