Patient Testimonial

Mr Johns is an exceptional consultant, not just for his excellent surgical skill but also for his wonderful interpersonal and communication skills. Throughout my breast care journey he helped to make understanding the whole process very straightforward. He combined the skill of being simultaneously reassuring with being realistic. I was in the fortunate position of having choices regarding surgery. He listened to my concerns and helped me through the benefits and limitations of each with great kindness. This helped me a lot to reach my own decision. Throughout my experience I felt in very safe hands and I have no hesitation in warmly recommending Mr Neil Johns to anyone facing breast care surgery.
