    I connected with Mr Greg Shaw the first time we spoke on the phone. He was very friendly and professional at the same time. He took his time to explain my diagnosis and the reasons why he felt the treatment option proposed was the best for me. On my request, he arranged a face-to -face meeting with me to discuss the concerns I had. He was very sympathetic towards my concerns and assured me that he will do his best for me. I found him to be very attentive, caring and unassuming. His words were very comforting and reassuring. He is exceptional.

    I connected with Mr Greg Shaw on my very first contact with him which was over the phone. I found his manner to be caring, precise and patient. He clearly explained the process of my treatment and he outlined benefits but also the potential risks so that I was fully informed. When my wife and I eventually met Mr Shaw for the first time, he continued in the same vein of being polite and patient whilst we went over the procedure. He also answered our numerous questions. On the day of my surgery, Mr Shaw came to visit me just before I was taken to theatre. He seemed upbeat and reassuring. He told my wife that he would call her as soon as possible after the operation and he did not disappoint. My wife commented that you could set your watch by his timings. Mr Shaw provided the news that we wanted to hear, which was that the surgery went perfectly and he was very pleased me as the patient and the result. As I was still under the effects of the anaesthesia after the operation, Mr Shaw came to visit me the next day to ask how I was and to explain how everything went. I can't speak highly enough of Mr Shaw, his interpersonal skills match his excellent surgical skills which in turn makes him a specialist consultant. THANK YOU Mr Shaw!
