    Mr Yip was clear and informative through out the whole process. Taking the time to ensure I was comfortable with the procedure and any changes that may occur during the surgery. All my questions were responded to quickly - the whatsapp interaction was great. I felt that I was in a safe pair of hands. At no point was I worried that he was not the right person to make be better.

    Mr Yip was excellent throughout the process. He took time to explain and share reports and scans with me, and his overall manner was very reassuring. On the day of the op, everything went very smoothly and recovery went very well. It was great to be seen so quickly and efficiently.

    I found Mr Yip totally professional, informative as to the operation I was having. In depth explanation of possible risks involved, how he would perform my gall bladder removal operation. Made me feel at ease both before and after operation. Very polite and caring. My operation was successful due to the excellent skills of Mr Yip. Good surgeon.
