Patient's View

Mr Sharma showed empathy & compassion from the outset, I was most anxious at our first meeting & he defused my anxiety by being caring & communicating in a sensitive manner. His leadership radiates among his team too, whom demonstrated respect & fondness for him. It wasn’t easy to be told I had bowel cancer Mr Sharma gave me this diagnosis in a caring way – just right for me & my hubby. He then performed my surgery – he was marvelous & due to his skills & leadership I have healed very well. I can’t thank him enough & we told him but he was so humble & kind even with our feedback. The NHS should be proud that Mr Sharma is doing such an amazing job day in day out. I would recommend him to anyone having bowel surgery. This is my 2nd diagnosis of cancer in 10 years & Mr Sharma with his team were excellent in every aspect. Thank you so so much!
