I thought Dr Gidwani was excellent. I saw him a few times over a period of approx. 15 months. He explained issues clearly and options available to treat my condition. I felt confident based on his initial advice not having surgery. As the condition worsened, I again felt confident based on this subsequent advice proceeding with the surgery. He was always very courteous and polite. On the day itself he put me at ease (although a very minor surgery, it was nonetheless my first surgery and so I was anxious). I would also like to praise his team. First Sally Ann, his secretary, was always very helpful and polite. Second, everyone I met at London Bridge hospital on the day of the surgery was polite and welcoming and made me feel at ease.

Doctor Gidwani's pre-operation and after operation explanation and care was excellent. Before my operation he explained the whole procedure and even went over it just before my operation. which i found very reassuring. The after care was also exceptional. We discussed how the operation went and what i could expect going forward. if you're lucky to have this Doctor conduct your surgery, you will be in very good hands!!
