    5 stars all round. Overall Mr Stimpson combines a warm friendly personality with an obvious wealth of professional knowledge and experience. He is down to earth, calm, gentle and most reassuring. It was clear he had my good at the heart of our consultation and would look after me extremely well. His secretaries too are friendly and most helpful, always quick to respond and to answer questions. Explanation. He explained his diagnosis and plan for proceeding in clear simple language, willing to answer questions fully and to deal with my anxieties in a most reassuring way. Bedside manner. He is everything one could want from a doctor and surgeon. Quite apart from his knowledge and skill, he is clearly a doctor dedicated to doing his very best professionally, in a manner which puts the patient at the centre of his work. His obvious concern for my well being as a whole shone through his warm caring nature.He has a personality which is naturally kind, sympathetic and fully engaged in seeing the patient as an individual not just as someone on whom to use his undoubted skill. I feel I couldn’t be in better hands and am most grateful to the consultant who referred me to him. He and the anaesthetist with whom he is apparently accustomed to work, were kind and considerate and made my surgical procedure far easier than I had dared to anticipate. The monitoring care and general treatment I received from the London Clinic was just as outstanding as I had found it on a previous occasion. Nursing staff were plentiful, attentive to every small aspect of my well being, and the food choice and quality were excellent. Provision for the Covid-19 situation was exemplary and everywhere was spotless and well maintained. I am very glad that Mr Stimpson is available there. Sent from my iPad

    Mr. Stimpson is all anyone could want in their doctor. He is down to earth, warm, friendly and caring. He explains his diagnosis and treatment proposals clearly, simply and succinctly. I have felt from my very first consultation with him that I am not only in a safe pair of hands, but in the overall care of a supportive, sympathetic and truly patient-centred doctor.

    Mr Paul Stimpson was very efficient. I didn’t realise I would be speaking to the surgeon however he came and greeted me and he was so calming and walked me through every single part of my procedure. He was very warning and welcoming even when I went into the anaesthesia bay and said hello to me before I went out and he ran through everything extremely thoroughly. I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon. He then came to me after I was waking up (twice because I couldn’t remember the first time) and told me how everything went, the condition I was in during my surgery and about my post op assessment. Overall he is a wonderful doctor and surgeon and has been great the whole way through my procedure starting from the initial assessment.

    I had a very minor procedure with Mr Stimpson but I felt he took me very seriously throughout the consultation and also the procedure. The procedure itself went very well and he was concerned about my comfort and well being throughout. He has a kind demeanour and I would definitely recommend him. The staff I dealt with setting things up were also very helpful, accommodating and friendly.
