Mr Chester is kind and considerate. From the first consultation I had with him I felt at ease. He talked me through all my options and listened to my wishes about the operation I needed to have on my foot. Mr Chester and his team were very caring and thoughtful and looked after me very well before, during and after my operation. I could not have asked for a better surgeon and team.

I am very pleased I chose Mr Chester for my recent surgery. I decided to have breast implant removal after they had been in for 8 years for a number of reasons. My first consultation with him was very reassuring and I was given some options to consider. He explained everything very well both positives and possible problems that may happen. He is clear and calm in his manner. I felt very well looked after throughout my pre and post op period. I opted for the removal and mastopexy and I am very pleased with the results. The after care was excellent and he was contactable for queries via e mail so at no point did I feel unsupported. He offered me 3 follow up appointments to check that all was healing well. I would highly recommend mr Chester as a surgeon, thank you.
I recently had the pleasure of being treated by Mr Chester for a BCC incision and skin graft. He is an excellent communicator and explained exactly what was needed for my condition. The operation was a total success and the follow up appointments were all very effective. I am extremely pleased with how Mr Chester treated me and would recommend him without hesitation.
