“When being originally referred by my health care provider I was offered different specialists than Phillip, but some intuition caused me to research others and I came across Philip. I was drawn to his wealth of experience and obvious professionalism for his specialism and the fact that he was at the forefront of robotic prostatectomy. Since my first consultation, I had complete faith that I was in the best hands and now out the other side of the procedure, I have no doubt. A very professional and assuring manner tinged with an underlying humor which helps ease challenging moments. Highly recommended.“
