Dr Loke has been a Consultant in Respiratory and General Internal Medicine since 2007. Having qualified from St Mary's Hospital Medical School in London he went on to undertake further sub-speciality training in Respiratory Medicine at Guy's, the Royal Brompton and St George's Hospitals before being appointed to a substantive NHS consultant post. Dr Loke is now based at Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Kent and specialises in all aspects of respiratory disorders including lung cancer, interstitial lung diseases, asthma and tuberculosis. He was formally head of Cardiothoracic Medicine at Croydon Health Services NHS Trust and clinical lead for lung cancer for 10 years before joining the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, London and member of the European Respiratory Society as well as the British Thoracic Society. He is married with two children. In his spare time he enjoys distance running, chamber music and improving his gardening skills.
My name is John Scales and I used to stay in Tunbridge Wells and Pembury, during the 1990's and 2000's, whilst I was there I was a patient of Dr Loke , and in a good few times he stretched my gullet for me. I honestly couldn't have been in better hands. He spoke to me like a friend after each time he did it reassuring me I would be fine and able to swallow my food a lot better, which I did. On my last visit to him he explained it wasn't good to keep having the procedure done as my gullet could collapse of tear. I am now living back in Scotland and having been in the hospital here the doctor here wanted to stretch my gullet without any having seen my medical records from the Kent and Sussex hospital. I said I wouldn't have it done. I how I wish I was still living in Tunbridge Wells, I wouldn't hesitate to have Dr Loke to do it for me. I'll forever be in his debt for his help. John Scales.
I was seen by Dr Tuck- Kay Lowe in the Respiratory Clinic on Monday March 19th . I have been suffering from COPD for about 4 years and have been admitted to hospital several times , the most recent being February 1st - 8th in AMU at Tunbridge Wells hospital at Pembury . Dr Loke was extremely helpful , answering all my questions and giving my wife and me a great deal of advice . We did feel that it may have been helpful to have had the appointment for the lung function tests before I was seen by the doctor rather than on the day after ! Also there were no notes from AMU regarding my recent stay in hospital . Dr Loke spent time with us , helping us to understand the problems for which we are extremely grateful .
Thank you for providing this positive feedback. Your opinion matters greatly in helping to improve our services locally. I have fed back to the hospital management who are now looking ant providing a more integrated electronic patient record at this hospital to address this specific issue. Dr T-K Loke
I first met Dr Loke when I was admitted through A&E with breathing difficulties. He came to see me the following morning. He checked everything , sent me for a chest x-ray and explained how to use my inhaler correctly and what I should be doing before discharging me. In the outpatient appointments he listens to me and explains everything he is doing and what the problems are. He has sent me for lots of tests and xrays. I feel that he is really concerned and trying to help . He doesn't make me feel like I am wasting his time.
Dr Tuck Kay Loke was very helpful during my consultation. He was very clear in explaining results and confident in the soloutions. Which kept me reassured.
