Very caring surgeon, explained the proceedure in a language that i could understand. I felt comfortable and well prepared for the operation. The follow up appointment after the operation was very well presented with any explaination on what surgery was done and why, I was also given photoes of before and after the surgery, so i could see what had been done. I would highly recommend Prof. Bijayendra Singh and Kims Hospital to anyone that needed surgery.
Being under the care of Professor Bijayendra Singh at KIMS Hospital I felt extremely looked after and in the best possible hands. Prof B Singh explained the procedure in detail and gave me the reassurance that I was in the best care. He was very approachable and answered all the questions raised and had a fantastic outcome. I would highly recommend Professor Bijayendra Singh.
Mr Singh has performed keyhole surgery and subsequently a full joint replacement of my right shoulder. He has a calm, reassuring manner and is clearly very knowledgeable on his subject matter. Every time I have seen him, it has been conducted in the manner of a sensible conversation with him listening to my queries and explaining everything to my satisfaction. Clearly I hope not to have to do so, but i would be happy to let him operate on me again!
Thank you for your feedback. I always try and answer questions that patients raise and hope to be able to answer them satisfactorily
Very happy with the care I have received from Professor Singh. He has always been approachable, friendly and very professional. He has taken time to address all my concerns and questions, leaving me feeling confident in his care. I have had a total shoulder replacement recently and will be returning again for a second shoulder replacement. I would have no hesitation in recommending Professor Singh if you are undergoing surgery in his care.
Professor Singh was outstanding in his care of myself. Assisting me with transferring from my local NHS hospital to KIMS he ensured that he went above and beyond in his duty of care. He was warm and friendly on each interaction. Answered any questions I had for him.
