    Mr Stimpson really made me feel at ease when I had a worrisome lump in my neck. He explained fully what may be the causes and referred me to a very good radiologist. All was ok and Mr Stimpson made sure to schedule a follow up in a few months time in order to make sure everything is ok. Really thorough service and left feeling reassured and happy with the results.

He has a subspecial interest in benign and malignant conditions of the Head & Neck region, and of course is thus one of my veritable go-to-guys for onward multidisciplinary care of Head & Neck cancer patients, both in the NHS and privately.
