We have received an excellent care all round from initial consultation through the surgery & follow up appointments. Dr Clarke has a great personalised approach to treating children, puts the whole family at ease & makes you feel like you are the only patient he has. He is incredibly attentive & compassionate. He puts complex medical concepts into simple understandable terms & carries out difficult surgical procedures with an ease of a highly skilled professional. In my son’s words “he is the best doctor ever”! We would highly recommend him to anyone with similar conditions (removal of distal oesophagus cyst & fundoplication).

Mr Clarke provided us with a brilliant service and absolutely fantastic care. He is an expertly skilled surgeon and did a marvellous job, the operation went well and he even took the trouble to call to check all was still good soon after we got home. Nothing was too much trouble and we are extremely grateful. He also has an efficient and helpful secretary which is really important. We would absolutely recommend him.
