Mr Bird is always very professional and willing to answer questions in a clear way. He is very caring and good at putting you at ease prior to surgery. Communication is always prompt. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Mr Bird has a pleasant manner and I'm confident that he knows everything there is to know about knees. However when I saw him yesterday I was disappointed that he hadn't reviewed the scans & notes about my knee prior to our meeting, so that we could make the best use of a very small time slot. In addition, I feel that the second problem with my knee was only discovered because I persisted with questions about the pain that I was experienceing. Upon reflection, I think I could have easily left the consultation with only a diagnosis of torn meniscus, and not the more important diagnosis of patella tendinopathy. Sorry if my review is a bit blunt.

Mr Bird met all my expectations of a consultant. He was quick, direct and seemed very knowledgable and confident about his field of expertise. I only saw him for 15 minutes, so not long to get an impression.

I met Mr Bird twice. He is friendly and pleasant and he organised the investigations very quickly. However, he was late for both appointments with the second appointment especially feeling rushed.
