Prof. Singh has a quiet but very professional manner and is very reassuring. He gave me full details of my procedure and recovery verbally which was backed up by a very concise information sheet. The follow-up and final consultations were very detailed and consoling. My main concern before my procedure was the risk of a post op infection which has happened to me twice over the last forty years. Prof. Singh assured me that this wouldn't happen - and it didn't. The man is a genius!
Prof Singh is very professional but easy to talk to, I appreciated his willingness to explain my procedures in a manner I would understand & answer all my questions.. I felt at all times that my well being was his first concern. His secretary also deserves a mention as all enquiries were dealt with in a prompt & friendly manner
