all fantastic. One thing - I would have liked more access immediately post op and in the subsequent weeks. I was a little in the dark about certain aspects of the recovery in terms of what I was allowed to do etc.

I am an Osteopath who refers my patients to Mr Patel whenever his consultancy is needed. I can highly recommend Mr Patel to my patients for his calm, approachable and informative manner. Every patient I refer reports they have felt they have been listened to and that they have received the best care, diagnosis and advice possible for their condition.

The reason I refer patients to Nitin is not only his skill as a surgeon, it’smy trust that he will only operate if this is the patients best option. The skill of when not to operate I value highly for my patients and combining this with his technical knowledge and skill make him one of 2 spinal Surgeons that I use and recommend in the South-West.

Mr Patel and the complementary practice I run have shared many patients over the years. Nitin has been a good ear for when we are unsure of the best referral pathway for a patient and patients have been delighted that a swift referral to a trusted colleague can be arranged and to date all the patients have done well. I always choose to refer to Nitin in spinal neurology cases.

Always very professional, personable and helpful as a colleague, explaining well what is going on with each individual patient and how best to proceed with treatment plans. The feedback from patients is always exceptional and aftercare second to none until suitable discharge time. Even after discharge Mr Patel's care continues should any further situations arise. Would always highly recommend as a consultant and surgeon. Highly value his opinions.

I found Mr Patel to be very personable, efficient and practical in his approach and advice. Critically whilst a surgeon, his approach appears to be based on remedies which avoid surgery first and put surgery based options as a last resort.

what a lovely person, every thing was explained to me and I was given a choice of routes to take and when I'd made my decision it was quickly followed by an appointment. After being let down by my GP it was lovely to have someone who had an understanding of my pain and explained what was causing it so well.
