Mr. Chester not only being an excellent surgeon, has an unbeatable bedside manner, very comfortable with husband or partner being present for all examinations, intimate our case, in fact encourages the support of one of the above. keeps you informed at every stage of the procedure, in our case as surgery took longer than expected, sent a member of the theatre staff to where we were waiting to inform us us of the delay and that there was nothing to worry about. Post surgery visited the room, to check on how I was doing, even the following morning prior to him going to theatre visited again and after prior to leaving for the day. the post operative care took 12 months and in the first 3 months we had visits to see Mr. Chester, twice a week, then every two weeks, until he was satisfied that we could then go to Monthly, then 3 monthly and then 6 monthly. We can only say that we cannot recommend Mr. Chester highly enough. Final appraisal of Mr. Darren Chester OUTSTANDING. Deb Lewis-Brake and Barry Brake(husband) Cannot improve on Perfection
Mr Chester came recommended to me by a friend and after doing lots of my own research and reading all of his reviews (all extremely positive) I decided to meet with him to discuss having a breast augmentation and abdominoplasty (breast enlargement and tummy tuck). Mr Chester was extremely approachable and it was obvious that he put my safety first so I felt totally happy, comfortable and confident in him to carry out the procedure for me. I was unsure of which volume of breast implant to choose so asked him to make the final decision during surgery to best fit my frame which he did perfectly. I am over the moon with the results which have exceeded my expectations. Mr Chester is absolutely lovely and has been personally contactable for any questions / queries I’ve had along the way. I would have no hesitation in recommending him, he’s fantastic!
Was very understanding of my daughter's needs, sent us away to talk it through with her as she has learning disabilities and autism. Went through every possible scenario with us, still receiving fantastic aftercare 7 months after her breast reduction. Always has plenty of time for you and has done an amazing job of my daughter's breasts. Her life is so much better now and she thinks that Mr Chester is just the best man in the world
The service and attention at the Droitwich Spa Hospital is excellent. I found Mr Chester to be very attentive to detail, a good communicator and above all, I am very satisfied with his surgical skills. I would have no problem recommending him to family and friends.
