    Mr Brown did an excellent job on my prostate operation and I was very pleased with the results. I recovered quickly and with the minimum of complications. I must admit that surgical competence means a lot more to me than bedside manner, but his knowledgeable and careful explanations of the procedure were very reassuring.

    The quality of service from Mr Brown is, in my option exceptional. He instils confidence not only in his recommendations as to the best course of action, but the time he takes to explain why, and in my situation that he had also taken the time to get further qualification from his colleagues. Your health is so important, it’s comforting to know it’s being looked after in the best way possible.

    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.
