Mr. Peter Bullock, What a Star. He looked after me for my Pituitary adenoma condition, explained everything to me in terms I could understand, and gave me every confidence that he and his team would operate and remove the tumour and that I had every chance of a normal life thereafter. His work with the other specialists he organised, from ophthalmology to optometry and from MRI to Endocrinology all worked seamlessly and they provided their individual highly specialised and highly skilled support as a well coordinated team, always administered by a superb PA who always knew what was going on, with whom and when and, why. When it came to operation itself, all went very smoothly from arriving at The London Clinic, through to all the hospital support he has in place for his practice, with a specialised General Practice Doctor managing Mr. Bullock's patients in his own speciality ward and all the surgery specialists including anaesthesia, other surgeons including top flight ENT,, great nursing,pre op care , post op recovery and then full post op care. Mr. Bullock came to see me before the operation and afterwards, several times, and on every occasion I felt really well looked after in what could have been a very vulnerable feeling, but was not, because of his care and sensitivity . After a week I was discharged when came to see me again, and for the four follow up sets of tests and visits with him, on every occasion he managed my time with him so as to give confidence and reassurance second to none. Irrespective of his extraordinary knowledge and skill, Mr. Bullock would be highly successful in any field of endeavour because "he can walk with Kings and Princes yet not lose the common touch". Thank you Peter so much for what you have done for me, I will never forget it, nor my gratitude to you.

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!
