> On my first meeting at UCLH I was put at ease by Mr Von Roon. The diagnosis of cancer and inmminent operation was conveyed with empathy, not making me feel overwhelmed but gave me confidence and trust that everything was going to be okay. > Mr Von Roon has a professional and caring manner that made me feel that I was his only patient. I felt he was invested in me as his patient. > Mr Von Roon answered not only my questions but that of my family who attended each appointment as well as calling my daughter after my operation, which she felt was really personable. > Following my operation Mr Von Roon was the first doctor I saw in ITU with his team. >Mr Von Roon has a great team which saw me on a daily basis and who also answered all my questions during my recovery. > Mr Von Roon has a special manner, persona that helped me through this episode, which gave me confidence that I was going to be alright. > How can I thank Mr Von Roon for my surgery and the care given to me from my initial visit and hospital stay? I can say THANK YOU for being my doctor and would recommend others to his care.
