    Mr Datta is an excellent surgeon - he has operated on me twice and each time the results have been excellent. He is also very reassuring and takes time to explain things.

    I was diagnosed with colon cancer in January 2021 and for my treatment I chose Mr Datta who has been absolutely fantastic. He is matter-of-fact but at the same time very reassuring and friendly, willing to explain, knowledgable and undoubtedly an authority in this field. He performed a colonoscopy and subsequent laparoscopic anterior resection on me which I am very happy to say has been successful and throughout my treatment I have been grateful to be able to trust him completely.

    Great quality care, understands your medical history on a professional and a personal level, which truly differentiates Dr.Datta from the peers. He goes the extra mile and responds to queries, issues and (god forbid) emergencies quickly. I highly recommend Dr.Datta's service.
