Written by a patient at The Princess Grace Hospital
28th June 2020


I was a patient of Mr Von Roon at The Princess Grace Hospital in June 2020. At all times I found him to be professional and caring. From the very first time I met him I was with my son and feeling nervous and apprehensive he put both my son and I at ease and we were left feeling totally confident in his abilities and I was happy to entrust him with my surgery for bowel cancer. As mentioned in a previous review I would agree that he is a very caring man who made you feel like you were his only patient and his main priority. I feel he supported me having this operation explaining to me exactly what to expect afterwards. Another lovely touch was that he called my son immediately after my operation to ensure him I was ok and that the procedure had gone well. I would recommend Mr Von Roon not only in my opinion is he an exceptional surgeon but also a wonderful man. Ellen Sandford.
