I was recently referred to Dr Tim Cross by my liver surgeon who had been conducting tests for deranged LFT. He has a very informal yet professional approach, explaining clearly in lay-mans language how the liver works. In addition he then explained what the resulting blood tests meant in relation to how efficiently my liver was working. Once a diagnosis was reached he included me in deciding how best to manage and monitor my ongoing care. He also took the time to acknowledge and recognise the effort I'd put into my own care re diet and exercise. In summary he is an extremely knowledgeable and talented doctor who genuinely cares about his patients. I'm completely confident in his diagnosis and couldn't have anyone better looking after me. Thanks Tim

My experience with Dr. Cross was excellent and I am more than happy to recommend him. My diagnosis of haemochromatosis was explained clearly and thoroughly and he was happy to take the time to answer my questions and reassure me.

I met Dr Tim Cross at the BMI Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle in early March regarding haemochromatosis. He discussed the results of the Fibroscan in a very helpful and precise way and explained the strategy of the follow=up of regular venesection to reduce the ferritin level. After the consultation I felt reassured.

I had a consultation and a scan at the same time which I was not expecting so was very pleased as I had travelled a fairly long distance. Despite being nervous of the findings Dr Tim Cross put me at ease had a professional yet friendly manner, he was informative and explained things in a way I understood. Very glad I chose to see him. Highly recommend.

I was referred to Dr Cross and the result of a very friendly but professional consultation was an ultrasound test and a gastroscopy. This confirmed the working diagnosis of gallstones which Dr Cross had suspected was the problem in the initial consultation. Dr Cross carried out the gastroscopy himself and made me feel at ease throughout. Following the detection of the gall stones Dr Cross quickly referred me on to a surgeon. Highly recommended.

I recently went to see Dr Tim Cross to investigate a complaint and I was delighted with his approach, knowledge and the way he explained things. He organised 3 separate tests for me and gave me a range of options. In the end, I had all 3 tests on the same day and his follow-up throughout has been superb. Never before have I experienced a Dr being so approachable and available to contact be that phone or email. Superb all round!

Dr. Cross has watched over my health issue for four years since his original diagnosis and has maintained a patient and reassuring support in spite of the many questions and commentary I have plagued him with during clinic meetings. I consider myself very fortunate to have been a patient of Dr. Cross as my treatment has been successful to date because he has guided me wisely from the outset and his cheerful encouragement has made me virtually worry free throughout the course of the ailment I suffer with

I had a consultation and then 2 exploratory examinations for gallstones with Dr cross and the whole experience was first class. His approach is warm, friendly, funny, but with a real passion and focus on identifying the problem at pace. I was surprised how available he was and the fact he game me his email address and actually responded himself was something I did not expect. Any consultation is worrying because the little voice in the back of your head always causes a little anxiety, but the approach from Dr Cross could not be any better and the way he explained things was superb. Genuinely first class on every level.

I was first referred to Dr Tim Cross in January 2017. Unlike when you see a some more ‘serious’ professionals I found Tim very friendly, certainly if you are a suffer of the ‘white coat’ syndrome there is no need with Tim. He doesn’t rush the consultation and ensures you leave understanding what each of the medical indicators are telling him, all in a positive reassuring way. A very personable expert in his field and a pleasure to have a consultation with.

Dr Cross is probably the most impressive doctor I have ever had any dealings with – I was instantly impressed with his enthusiasm, knowledge and determination to help diagnose my issues. I had little doubt that he would do exactly as he promised too. Dr Cross clearly knew his stuff and his approach to dealing with me ticked all my boxes – I felt as though he cared about me. Sure enough we got to the bottom of it and it turned out my diagnosis was ‘left field’ of what was expected. I would absolutely recommend Dr Cross, my referral was for a liver issue. Throughout my treatment I was offered an email dialogue option that I duly utilised and Dr Cross replied to everything I asked!

I was delighted with the professional care I received from Dr Tim Cross. I felt very well informed and reassured that he would be able to give me answers to my presenting problem.
