“I don't really need to add anything beyond the star ratings I have just checked. Everything about my interactions with Mr Harnett, for a knee replacement with complications, including pre- and post-surgery, were exemplary. From the outset I felt in the safest hands possible“

    Paul put himself out at all hours ( at times outside his normal clinics) to help me. He also explained everything very clearly and was very patient with my stubborness over travel to USA and later for ski touring- he probably thought I was a crazy old man.

    Mr Harnett was my consultant throughout my recovery process after breaking my femur after having it fixed on the NHS, I could not recommend a better consultant to have, calmed all my worries, especially when I developed an odd gait with my walk and my physio said i would need surgery again, Mr Harnett assured me i wouldn't numerous times, and was right and gait disappeared as i got stronger, my leg and my body are stronger than ever after following his advice.

    My experience with Dr. Harnett was nothing short of brilliant. He has a very personal approach, which is something I look for when seeing a healthcare professional. Everything was well explained - and although seeing a doctor can be quite nerve-wracking, he made it not so. I've (unfortunately) seen many orthopedic surgeons in my time & his approach is up there with the best. I can wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Harnett to anyone thinking about booking an appointment with him. You'll thank yourself afterward.
