Have been on receiving end of surgical skills for a very extensive two-stage procedure. He and whole team involved could not have been better. What is even better is a brilliant post -op outcome

Mr Thorpe was extremely kind to me and reassuring throughout the process of having outpatient appointments to surgery! I've had an L5/S1 discectomy and 4 months on I feel better than ever! He was very thorough and explained what the process would be, what to expect and answered any queries I had. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done and would highly recommend him.

Written by a patient at Nuffield Hospital Taunton

This specialist put me at my ease immediately and prescribed diagnostic MRIs to inform his diagnosis and treatment. He had been previously recommended by a peer surgeon at the same hospital and had impressive credentials. When I found that the procedures he was offering were not payable under my Private Health Insurance arrangements he lost no time in organising this work at the public expense (NHS). I shall review again when the treatment has been completed

Response from Mr Paul Thorpe

Thank you for your kind feedback about the consultation at the Nuffield. We understand the stress that can be associated for patients who need, for whatever reason, to change between the Private sector and the NHS, and we try and support this process to make it as smooth and as efficient as possible. I hope that your treatment has now been completed to your satisfaction.

Written by a carer at Taunton and Somerset Hospital

Having previously visited this man over several years with my daughter, we were always pleased to see him as he was always kind, professional and even shared pictures of his dog on one occasion. However on our last visit he was most rude and nasty. He told my daughter that she was the least important person he had seen today and the reason he was late seeing us was that he had seen much more complicated cases. He then proceeded to say that as he hadn't seen us for two years it may well be that my daughter would need steel rods put into her back to support her spine (this isn't classed as important or complicated and why not seen for two years? He then asked my 15 year old who has celebral palsy and some learning difficulties, directly "do you want steel rods put in your back? I know normal teenagers would care about their appearance but you don't want all that do you?" In all we were with him no more than ten minutes and told by him that we should have another X-ray in six months and he would then perform a virtual appointment where he will speak to us over the phone. No thank you. We will not be seeing this man ever again or recommend him.
