“Mr Nico was extremely thorough in his explanation which made myself and Lucas feel v. confident about the proposed procedure. Most importantly, he was great with Lucas and built an excellent rapport with a 4 year old boy. Mr Nico has excellent listening skills and definitely helped with Lucas being so calm for the procedure. We were also really happy with the efficiency of the entire process - from the first time we met Mr Nico to Lucas sleeping silently as of this week. We are v. v. grateful. “

    Our initial consultation with Mr Jonas was excellent. I liked his thorough examination of my son. From the way he was talking it reassured me how experienced his is and that we are in very good hands. I do have a couple more questions and I feel happy to contact his secretary to ask these prior to the operation.
