I first saw Mr Hobbs in November 2016 about vein problems and was immediately Impressed with his professionalism and his manner. I told him at the time the whole outpatients experience and his work was appreciated. I had an operation on April 28 and I believe that the experience was the best I have had during 60-odd years of NHS treatment. From the time I turned up and saw a receptionist and was met by nurses Bassi and Josi I was impressed with their care and diligence. In the operating theatre the nurses - two Jane and a Janine- quickly put me at ease and Mr Hobbs was very re-assuring and the nurses were friendly and quite funny. After the operation I said: "If the NHS could bottle this efficiency and atmosphere it would be going places." I was very impressed by the whole experience and would recommend Mr Hobbs to anyone who needed his assistance. He is a polite and unassuming man and was most anxious to put me at my ease - and performed a very successful operation. I must say the whole hospital experience at New Cross was highly professional and it was a pleasure - well almost! - to be treated there.
From the first consultation with Mr Hobbs for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, I felt like he totally understood how I was feeling and the impact being in pain was having on my life and lifestyle. He listened to me wth empathy and I genuinely felt like he wanted to help me. Mr Hobbs arranged appropriate tests quickly and when it was decided (jointly) I would be having surgery he explained everything so I felt very reassured. My surgery went well and I had immediate positive results. He then arranged post-operative physio and timely follow-up appointments. Mr Hobbs professionalism has been second to none, I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
The care and treatment given by Mr Hobbs was outstanding . After suffering for many years with very painful ulcers on her ankles she was given treatment and they healed . When discharged he said to ring if we had any further problems . We did have cause to do this it was on a Friday Mr Hobbs was on holiday his secretary rang him and told him how worried we were, she rang us back and said to bring her to see him on Monday . The unrelated problem was very serious and thanks to his quick and caring response she is now cured and was discharged on 23 Jan 2017.Many many thanks Mr Hobbs .
Excellent procedure on my varicose vein by Mr Hobbs and his team at Sk:n . Everything very well explained from start to finish. Completely made me feel at ease before and during my procedure. I would highly recommend Mr Hobbs and his team 100%. The aftercare is fantastic , I received phone calls to make sure I was ok the next day and told not to be afraid to call if I needed any advice . A big thankyou Mr Hobbs the results to my leg is fantastic and no longer do I suffer the aches ....Kerry Lucas
