Trust. During my Pr-op, Consultations, day of the op, post up and all follow ups. Mr Simon Atkinson was, and is a perfect professional gentleman. I trust him 100%. Listening. Mr Simon Atkinson shows empathy, kindness, attentiveness, and has excellent manner. He explains everything simply too. I do very much appreciate all staff who work tirelessly at our precious NHS. However, selfishly when it came to having an operation on both my Gall Bladder and Oesophagus I tracked down whom I consider the Best, and although I live in Kent. I choose Mr Simon Atkinson and Guys and St Thomas's. Thank you. Godbless.
