Mr Gurjar takes great care to listen, invite questions and explain thoroughly, giving as much time as is required. His bedside manner is perfect with just a hint of humour he truly treats patients as individuals.

Mr Gurjar was open and welcoming making me feel at ease as soon as I met him. He listened attentively to my issues, completed the assessment and then explained the reasoning for the condition. He clearly explained the options and next steps.

Luckily I am someone who has always had good health so to be honest I was quiet nervous at the prospect of having to undergo any procedure. I had a telephone consultation with Mr.Gurjar ( due to Covid 19) Mr.Gurjar was very easy to talk to with a real warmth and a manner that instantly puts one at ease. He kept me well informed what the procedure would involve and throughout I felt well cared for and most importantly in good, professional hands. I feel he & his lovely team are a real credit to the medical profession. A huge thank you for the human, professional way I was dealt with.

He was polite, made me feel comfortable and did not talk down to me. Straight to the point with no excess waffle. He made me aware of the risks but not in an alarming manner, Although I do no relish having to have an operation I am glad that he will be performing it.
