“Mr Lambert has a great way to communicate with young patients (and adults for that matter). He is very calm and friendly. He performed a complicated surgery on my 9 years old. My son loves him and thinks he is the best. Mr Lambert explained the procedure to us very clearly before hand and followed everything through in the best possible way. The wound healing went very smoothly and the scar is looking very clean and neat already after a few weeks. I am ever so grateful for his great work.“

    Mr Lambert is clearly passionate about his job, taking such care in his patients needs. I first met Mr Lambert 8 year's ago for my first surgery via the RNOH and knew when I needed further treatment that I needed the same person and found him again via HCA. He has provided me with reasurrance throughout and although early days, I am so pleased with my treatment and the opportunity he has provided me so I can get on happily with my active family life!
