“I received a great explanation of what tests and procedures I would experience in order to accurately diagnose what was causing my symptoms. These tests and procedures were all carried out efficiently and I was provided with instant feed back back as the tests were being carried out which is perfect for any patient. I finally had a one to one follow up with MrBrown explaining what had been found and what treatment was available which totally put my mind at rest. Excellent service by Mr Brown and all other staff involved.“

    From my first appointment with Mr Brown initially as an NHS patient, and thereafter privately at The Prostate Centre, he has always been considerate of my condition and clear of his assessment of the options available to me as well as subsequent aftercare. He inspires confidence in his recommendations. Through him I have been introduced to other carers to support my further rehabilitation.

    Expertise and a deep knowledge of the field are a given, but what I find marks out Christian Brown as a Consultant, alongside some of those I have experienced over the years is his openness and willingness to engage in a pragmatic review of the options with me, so that we can both agree the best way forward. I feel very confident in his judgement.

    On the occasion one finds oneself in need of a professional to consult, then I was grateful to have been referred to Christian Brown by a relative who had a similarly good experience under his care. His manner is clear and considered, and perhaps most importantly consultative particularly in the sense that he listens astutely to what information is provided, gathers both evidence and opinion before proposing clearly presented options for a way forward. Highly recommended.

    Christian dealt with my 17 year old son in the perfect balance between being professional and understanding he was not quite an adult. He had a lovely bedside manor and spoke to my son in a way he understood. The day of the operation went smoothly and my son has had a positive result and would highly recommend Christian.

    Dr Brown’s advice was clear and spot-on. His manner of explanation made it simple to understand. He has never made me feel rushed and has patiently clarified all questions I have put to him. As a Barrister, I also find myself in a position of advising others and appreciate and recognise the way Dr Brown advised me. Clearly he would not have been able to do so without all the hard work and his experience as a urologist.
