“I have been under the care of Mr Vimplis for a few years. Last year we decided to proceed with a laproscopy / hysteroscopy operation following periods of pain and discomfort due to endometriosis. His care has always been exceptional. From our initial consultation to after-care post op - I have always felt comfortable and at ease. He is calm and kind and I always felt things were explained well to me. The procedures have been life-changing to my general well-being and I am very grateful to Mr Vimplis for helping me achieve this. He was recommended to me by a friend and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone else.“

    I have to say that I was so impressed with Mr Vimplis and how he communicated with me over this COVID period. I was very anxious and he managed to alleviate my anxiety by communicating with me over email. I was so grateful that he took time out to very swiftly email me back on more that one occasion. 10/10 for patient care.

    Me Vimplis was the first medical professional to actually take me seriously about my health. He is so kind and knows exactly what to say and how to say it. Having spoken to many doctors and gynaecologists, I found that Mr Vimplis was the only one I wanted to move forward with. He helped me as quickly and efficiently as is possible and it was the best care I could hope for. I am very grateful for Mr Vimplis. He is above five stars.

    Excellent Doctor! Needed an appointment urgently and his secretary was very accommodating and fit us in immediately. Dr Vimplis listened and was very reassuring, the testing conducted was thorough and I have no hesitation in recommending his services.

    I was recommended to see Mr Vimplis about 4 years ago and can honestly say he is the most genuine caring health professional that I have ever met. I actually spoke to him before I saw him because I had been given some not very nice news and contacted his secretary and was quite upset whilst on the phone talking to her, she must have contacted him and he called me later that evening. He promptly arranged various tests and I had an operation, the aftercare was incredible and the fact he makes himself available via email/phone is something that I have never come across before with any consultant, his care for me has truly been so considerate that I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    I met Mr Vimplis over 5 years ago when I sought his expert advice after being treated very poorly in another hospital by a different doctor and “ accidently” got discharged, with what I know now, a burst ovarian cyst. I was in serious pain for months by the time I met him and at my first appointment he was able to diagnose my condition. Mr Vimplis was not just very friendly but understood my concerns and was more than happy to answer all my questions. He had arranged and carried out my operation in under 3 weeks and done an amazing job. Mr Vimplis managed to save all my reproductive organs as well as the part of my bowels that was attached to the cyst. I had many follow up appointments with Mr Vimplis and he was always very caring, reassuring and extremely thoughtful to ensure that I end up with the correct medication for me. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him, I could reach him anytime I wished to seek his advice and he had exceptionally looked after my well-being and followed my progress for 5 years very closely. Mr Vimplis is a truly unique individual who really does care about his patients, therefore I highly recommend him for his medical knowledge as well as for his interpersonal skills.
