Having been diagnosed with endometriosis in 2009 while living abroad and after suffering 2 miscarriages, I had my first consultation with Mr Pickersgill to discuss options. In this first consultation Mr Pickersgill listened to our history and understood our situation completely. He was able to offer advice and reassurance and following this appointment we decided to plan a laparoscopy with Mr Pickersgill to treat any ongoing endometriosis. The surgery took place in August 2015 and I was in and put of hospital in a day. After subsequent follow up appointments with Mr Pickersgill and treatment for hyperplasia I am now pregnant with twins. Without his expertise and care, I'm not sure we would have succeeded in reaching our dream of decoming parents.
I was under doctor pickersgill 5yrs ago and recently been referred back to him at my request as he is the only endometriosis specialist that i trust and believe in...this very special guy is my hero...for the last 18 months i was quite poorly with stomach pains caused by eating lots of trapped wind and way to many to mention a+e visits but didnt know what the problem was...my last stay in hospital it was finally diagnosed as a blockage in my bowel SBO and i had two strictures of the colon all down to endometriosis ...but no one was willing to help, so now i know what the problem is i desperately needed doctor pickersgill so an appointment was made and of all the patients he sees on a daily basis he actually remembered me from previous years...and within 5mins of being with him i knew i was going to be ok and that he would do everything he could to help me...and thats exactly what he did the following week he got the ball rolling and got a colorectal surgeon involved i had emergency surgery to remove the obstruction and a bowel resection all done by both surgeons... im 3 weeks post op now and feel i have my life back i owe this guy so much hes truly amazing one of a kind...he listens...he explains everything to you..he always finds the time to reply to his calls if you call him and leave a message...his knowledge is outstanding and i feel totally blessed that hes my specialist....sent from heaven...a rare diamond....
Hes an amazing doctor!! Caring, friendly and professional. He knows exactly what he's doing in all his trained areas and very knowledgeable, I really wouldnt want to use anyone else. He's treated me for a few things and most recently a hysterectomy and I was up and about with no problems in no time! He's really very good at what he does and I'd highly recommend him (and Karen his secretary is very efficient too.) Thanks Mr P for everything you've done so well...and most importantly for helping give me my kids(helping me surgically I mean!)
I came to Mr Pickersgill after receiving amazing A&E care from Stepping Hill hospital which unfortunately wasn't matched by follow up diagnostic treatment. He was recommended by someone as being the most "human" of the consultants within his specialist area and this is a description I 100% endorse. He listened to me to make sure he had all the facts, given that he was taking over my case part-way through, and was very patient every time I got my notebook out with my long list of questions, the answers to which I had to also write down if I was going to remember anything once I had left the room! He gave me options to consider as part of my treatment and answered all my questions regarding associated risks and how each option would suit me as an individual (not a case study). He is friendly, personable, honest and has a sense of humour (not all specialists possess this quality). He spoke to me like a knowledgeable friend rather than a consultant dealing with a patient. The comment made by someone else about never rushing an appointment is spot on and I never minded waiting if he was running late as I knew he would give me the same dedicated attention when it was my turn. Mr Pickersgill is a credit to his profession and I am so grateful for the care and attention received from him. Again, thank you so much.
Since 2013 Mr Pickersgill has provided me with both gynaecological and obstetric care of the highest standard. After a number of miscarriages and numerous doctors advising me to "just keep trying"; Mr Pickersgill listened to my story (through my exhausted tears) and assured me he would help me. Now, two children later, I can only describe his care as outstanding. With astute clinical knowledge alongside empathy and compassion, Mr Pickersgill made me feel like a person not a patient. I cannot recommend him more highly.
