I was very impressed by Dr Aylwin, the very first time I met him. He was very friendly and patient and therefore talking to him was made easy. His showed good understanding of my complex problems. His supportive manner, thorough and clear explanation of my condition and the treatment options available helped me to make a meaningful decision about the choice of treatment to pursue. He is highly recommended.

I found Dr Aylwin to have a very personable manner, and an instinctive talent which goes above and beyond the skills expected of a specialist.

Dr Simon Aylwin is a young dynamic physician, whose attributes are many. He is caring, informative and nothing is too much trouble. His professional approach is outstanding and so too is his manner. If you require the services of an endocrinologist he is the “go to man”. I cannot commend him too highly.
