Bedside Manner
I was diagnosed with severe pancreatitis and had been in and out (mainly in) hospital for nearly 2 months before going private and arriving at The London Clinic under the care of Professor Kocher. In the 2 weeks prior my health had started to deteriorate badly and I was in quite a bad way. I was very worried and concerned. As soon as I arrived and met Professor Kocher and his team, steps were put in place and there was an immediate change in my sense that I felt comfortable and safe in their hands. Within hours my first procedure had taken place and the recovery had started. I spent a further 7 weeks at The London Clinic before I was able to go home. The level of care and attention I received was outstanding. Professor Kocher always took the time to clearly explain my condition (even drawing basic diagrams), and my treatment plan. He answered all my questions and listened to my thoughts. He also took time to speak to my family and friends, listen to their concerns and patiently answer their questions. It's very clear to see Professor Kocher is at the forefront of what he practices. I will be forever grateful for all the help and treatment I received from Professor Kocher and his team at The London Clinic. Thank you very much, Leigh

Professor Kocher is an excellent surgeon. He has performed two extremely difficult surgeries for me with great success. He has always made me feel I can ask any question to which he has always given clear explanations, given me confidence and put me and my wife at ease. In consultations he is very professional and yet still manages to be a friendly face. His after care is second to none. He is also very efficient when it comes to written communications with me and other professionals related to my case. As well as having a fantastic team supporting him. In summary, I cannot praise Professor Kocher highly enough.
