“I felt that I am in great hands with Mr Jones. He is very professional and gave me all the information I needed about the surgery. Also, he spoke and dealt with me as a patient rather than a case. The pre-operation and post operation appointments were at high quality care and met all my expectation!“

    Mr Jones was professional and knowledgeable at every appointment, preoperative consultations were on time and informative. The surgery and aftercare could not be faulted, Mr Jones was personally available to answer any queries and made the whole experience seamless. I would recommend Mr Jones to anyone contemplating any surgical procedures. My life has been changed forever thanks to this accomplished surgeon.

    Fantastic experience from first meeting with Mr Jones, to surgery, to follow ups. Had surgery in January 2020. I’ve been fully supported by Mr Jones and his team throughout the pandemic and today, 11 months post surgery, I hit my 100lb loss!. I’m delighted to say the least!
