I am just dropping you a line to say a big thank you for all your help over the last seven months. It hasn’t been easy for me but with your professional attitude it has helped me see it through to a positive end. Secondly I would like to say that having Dr Datta as my surgeon I couldn’t have been it better hands, his knowledge and professionalism was second to none.

Throughout the whole process he has shown compassion, respect and a calmness towards me to which I am very grateful, which is why he is rated so highly in his field.

I consider myself lucky to have found such a man who I consider to be not just a great surgeon, but someone I can call a friend.

– Mr I
