“Underwent an inguinal hernia repair with Mr. Atkinson. Very positive experience. Developed a good rapport quickly and he was always willing to go the extra mile, for example by giving up time to provide a further phone consultation. “

Gallbladder Removal (cholecystectomy) Gallstones
I was seen quickly when i discovered i had a problem with my gallbladder and a stone. Diagnosis was given almost immediately and a plan of action made. Mr Atkinson was very attentive and did an excellent job of curing me with a small operation. I felt better almost immediately and the healing process was very fast. Pain from the operation ... What Pain ? there was none. I certainly feel I found the best man for the job. My wife worried throughout (Thats natural). Mr atkinson spoke to her and put her mind fully at rest. This was all done during the Covid lockdown as well.

Mr Atkinson seems very experienced and was very detailed in his explanation of how procedures are done and what could go wrong. Unfortunately, he spoke to me in a patronising manner. With empathy you can discover your patients in the first 5 minutes of a consultation and adapt your approach. I would recommend him for his knowledge and experience but not for his human touch.

after a year of problems with my pancreas and pancreatic pseudocyst i was refered to Mr Atkinson, In my first consultation with him he explained all about what was happening with my pancreas and cyst in a way i could understand. Within a week of my first consultation he had booked me in to have my gallbladder removed. on the day of my operation he came to my room to explain exactly what was going to happen, this was all very well explained and made me feel at ease with what was going to happen. I stayed in London bridge hospital over night after my operation and the staff there was brilliant. I had a second consultation with Mr Atkinson a few wks after my operation where he explained what had happened during my operation and the results of what was found in my gallbladder. all this information was explained very well and I was able to ask question which he explained the answers to very well. Over all the experience was brilliant and Mr Atkinson was brilliant. I would highly recommend him. Many Thanks
