I felt comfortable the second I went into the appointment. Mr Nathan Coombs has a very pleasant and calm manner. He gave me a very detailed exam and spent time explaining all my results and any concerns I had. I felt extremely well looked after and respected. First rate treatment from a doctor who is clearly excellent at his job. My thanks to him for his care and attention to detail.

Having first met Mr Coombs 6 years ago I had no problems discussing my situation. He was then and still is very friendly and explains things in a simple and very understanding way. I have no doubt that should I need surgery he would be the very person to carry out same.

I met with Mr Coombs today during a follow up appointment for the surgery he had performed. He had a very caring and reassuring manner and explained my options clearly and concisely, answered all my questions and gave me useful information. I left the appointment feeling fully confident about the future. He is a great asset.

Having felt apprehensive about my appointment I was immediately put at ease on meeting Mr Coombs. He was very professional ,very caring and kind. Mr Coombs explained my condition , my procedure and aftercare throughly in a manner which I could understand and follow. I would reassure anyone that would be meeting Mr Coombs that they were in very capable and caring hands. .

Very satisfied with my late afternoon meeting with Mr Coombs, he made me feel comfortable and explained in detail the procedure that he would be performing on my hernia. I also found the later appointment much easier to attend and I hope you will continue to offer them.
