    Mr Casey gave clear cut advice that enabled medical treatment decisions to be swiftly taken. There was no need to seek a second opinion for reassurance. Mr Casey achieved an immediate relief from pain. And, until I saw a photograph of my back, I did not know and could not tell where exactly the injections had been done. What better outcome could a patient reasonably ask for.

    A brilliant surgeon with first class outcomes. Very pressurised and constantly’ ‘on the run’. No need/wish for ‘small talk’ Seems quite nervous behind the mask of Consultant expertises. Once known better I think a different individual would emerge. When viewed in retrospect I am very happy to have been the recipient of his professionalism.

    Mr Casey was truly amazing. He took on my complicated case, he explained everything so clearly and gave me hope. He was extremely courteous and caring. I had full confidence in him, and he was a brilliant surgeon. My operations went extremely well and I had no complications. He kept me well informed throughout my patient journey with him. I cannot thank him enough for making me better.

    Mr Casey is an excellent surgeon and I felt I was in very confident, safe hands. He answered all my questions clearly, though he does talk rather fast. Understandable as he is obviously a busy man. I would definitely recommend him.

    I have had an amazing experience with Mr Casey. My diagnosis originally came as a bit of a shock, but he reassured me and explained the plan in detail. I can with a list of questions and he patiently answered them all. I am still under his care and feel extremely confident in his way of thinking.

    What a superb practitioner. He has a deserved air of confidence and he’s clearly highly respected by everyone he works with. He and his team gave me complete confidence I was in safe hands and although it’s early days so far everything post operative has been as he described.
