Mr Connell is extremely approachable. He explains everything in layman's terms and has no issue in repeating anything if you do not understand. He has a great bedside manner with a good sense of humour, which makes you feel at ease - perhaps he should train other doctors and consultants! He exudes confidence which in turn makes you feel safe and secure that all will be well. He listens to any concerns and answers any questions you may have I would recommend him to anyone and have nothing but praise for him.

Excellent care from Dr Connell, always informative before and after surgery. Having my hysterectomy has been so beneficial to my health and life and I feel so much better after only 6 weeks of my surgery.

I find Mr Connell highly professional whilst, at the same time, very personable because he puts me completely at ease in an often rather worrying situation. He is explanatory, shows attention to detail and is always charming!
