In December 2015 I went to see my GP for Injections as I was travelling out of the UK, but discovered that I was Pregnant. Since I am in my late forties and had a myomectomy in 2011, My GP recommended that I see a specialist immediately and introduced me to Professor Ellis Downes, in Harley Street. My husband and I realised from our first meeting, that we had found a very special Obstetrician. He was down to Earth and knowledgeable, Always very welcoming, cheerful and very positive and his attention to detail was second to none. He performed my C-Section in April, which went very well and he also came to see me several times while I was in the Hospital to ensure that I was healing well. It is now Early June and I now have a healthy six week old Baby. I have also had my six week appointment with Professor Downes and we realised how blessed, we are to have met with him. All in all, my Experience with him and his staff was wonderful.

I went to see Prof Downes for a second opinion as I had been told I needed a hysterectomy following a pipelle biopsy. Prof Downes was extremely reassuring, explained the different options clearly and personally carried out a full biopsy so that we could obtain a clearer picture. As a result of this I am now able to undertake a more conservative hormone therapy. I cannot stress enough how professional and kind both Prof Downes and all his staff have been.
