From the initial consultation, through my daughter's 2 surgeries, from which she had an excellent recovery, to the follow up appointments Doctor Clarke has been brilliant. Calm, caring, supportive and very professional. He is extremely knowledgeable and competent, taking time to explain clearly the treatment plan and making me feel very reassured. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Mr Clarke was excellent at explaining to our 12 yr old son, not only what was happening to him but also what his choices were going forward. He has a lovely manner and put him (and us) at ease straight away. We left his office, feeling well informed of our choices and confident we were in good hands. My son said Mr Clarke was the nicest Dr he'd ever met and he's met many!!

Mr Simon Clarke is an excellent doctor in every way, with a lovely bedside manner. He is very experienced. He acted very promptly to remove my daughters appendix (the same day). Her scars are minimal and recovery was quick. We are very grateful to him for all he has done for us and would highly recommend him.

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).
