I consider myself blessed when I came across you Mr Banwell. You performed my operation almost a year ago which I am pleased to say was a GREAT success. I am more than pleased with the results, my whole shape is so much more defined and I love it. From the first time I met you at my initial consultation, you put me at ease immediately and never pressured me at any point to undertake the operation, you also never tired of my questions and you offered me only professional sound guidance and advice. You as a surgeon I have found to be completely transparent, knowledgeable, educated beyond most surgeons (that I came across) and totally professional, your skills and attention to detail are second to none.
Mr Paul Banwell performed a wider excision for me in April 2008 following a diagnosis of melanoma. The care and support provided by him has been second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. Paul’s approach to surgery and post-surgery is one of honesty and excellence in his field of expertise. I feel safe in his care.
The care was excellent both pre and post operatively. During my stay at the hospital I knew exactly what to expect and when, which was most reassuring. The outcome is exactly as I’d have hoped. My eyes look less heavy and it’s as if they have more space to open! I’d never heard of the procedure before seeing Mr Banwell but I knew that something needed doing, and I’m absolutely delighted with the results.
It is hard for me to find the right words to thank you enough for everything you have done for me.
I was referred to Mr Paul Banwell in February 2010 when I was diagnosed with an advanced melanoma in the lymph nodes in my left groin. At my consultation he explained in layman’s terms my diagnosis and all details regarding the operation I needed. Mr Banwell operated on 27th February 2010. The operation was a complete success – he has removed all the cancer as subsequent scans have proven. I then spent seven days recuperating in the McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead under Mr Banwell’s and his specialised teams care. They were all wonderful. Mr Banwell was at my bedside every morning to check my progress. His kindness and caring knew no bounds. He made all my fears and anxieties groundless and replaced them with optimism for a great feature and my aftercare was first class. I would recommend this highly professional, dedicated, humane family man to all who need any medical intervention. He is the best. How do you thank a man who gives you your life back? There are no adequate words.
The results of the surgery were excellent. Four months after the surgery there is hardly any evidence of scarring. Mr Banwell was also very good at explaining the nature of the problem and the treatment.
