“I found Mr Kerwat to be extremely professional and knowledgeable and was very pleased with the service and overall experience that I received from him. I first was referred to him over 10 years ago and when I had some new symptoms come up I specifically requested to see him again. I think that says a lot about the quality of care that I received from him.“

    Mr. Kerwat was unbelievably professional. A kind, gentle man who takes time to explain in detail what is going on both before, during and after procedure. I felt very comfortable and most importantly safe in his hands. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you so very much.

    Mr Kerwat is a consultant that operated on me before in 2015, and when my most recent problem occurred, I had no hesitation in asking for him again. He is a highly competent individual, who tells you how it is in an excellent, sympathetic and engaging manner. The procedure he carried out on me went like clockwork, and was exactly as he had stated to me beforehand. I will see him again if required, as I have full faith in his abilities.
