I have been seeing Mr Bullock for the past 15 years. He has been nothing but a thorough gentlemen and an amazing surgeon! He is polite, kind, supportive, intelligent, and great at what he does. He always explains everything in a calm, reassuring and positive manner. He is open to answering questions and allays any fears that you may have. He has operated on me twice successfully and continues to monitor me on a regular basis. He always goes above and beyond in caring for the patient and their entire family. I would go as far as saying that he is a part of my family. We all adore him and wish him all the best always!

Mr Bullock saw me through the toughest time of my life - he is the inspiration, the heart and the coordinator of a wonderful team. He explained everything so well - he is an amazing surgeon - he managed to remove the whole tumor and he was so thoughtful of my family as well as myself. I am so grateful that I was lucky enough to be under his watch.

What I wanted was to see someone who would say, "look, this is serious, but it can be dealt with and I'm confident I can do that for you," and that's exactly what happened. I felt that to be absolutely true, and you need that when you are - quite literally - putting your life into someone else's hands.

When you have a, potentially, frightening or even life threatening illness, having someone like Peter Bullock to guide you through the remediation is all you need. A tremendously calm, articulate and very personable gentleman, he has an excellent bedside manner. The issues and treatment options are clearly explained, aftercare advice issued and all without drama - the whole experience was (mad as it sounds) a pleasure!

I had the pleasure of being referred to Mr Bullock in March 2019, following the shock diagnosis of 2 meningiomas. I have always found him to be very open, and calm in his approach to me - and when I was in Hospital before, during and after surgery he demonstrated a wonderful bedside manner. All the nursing staff also reaffirmed this. His post op care was exceptional, and should I need to be operated on again for any other Neurological issue, I would always ask for him to treat me - and have recommend him to others in my situation.
