I had a prolapse bladder repair by consultant Mr R Connell gynaecologist and very happy with the procedure and my stay at Kim's hospital would highly recommend Mrs A Hines
Dear Mr. Connell Having been signed off by you this morning, I wanted to put in old fashioned writing how grateful I was for your expertise, kindness, empathy and humour combined with a dollop of charm, which you brought to every aspect of the consultations and procedure which you have Recently carried out on me. My recovery has been speedy and problem free. Slight discomfort would be an overstatement and only lasted a couple of days. The care once I was admitted to KIMS was kind and efficient as was all my dealings with Michelle. Thank you very much for all of the above.
Mr. Connell listened to me attentively and gave me his professional advice.
From my consultation through to post surgery I felt very at ease. The care I recieved was brilliant and really pleased with how my surgery went, would definitely recommend Dr Connell.
I have now completed my 3 courses of my Mona Lisa treatment and have noticed a definite improvement in my symptoms. Throughout Mr Connell maintained a relaxed understanding approach to what can be regarded as a sensitive subject.
I just would like to say Thank you to Mr Connell and his team at KIMS Hospital and yourself for looking after me before, during and after my recent operation. My care was outstanding and could not have asked for better care. Your team went above and beyond and made me feel at ease. I recovered very quickly and returned to my normal activities. Wishing your team all the best.
I felt very well cared for by Dr Connell. He was kind and attentive both before and following the operation which gave me complete confidence. He is also aided by a very kind and efficient secretary who could not have been more helpful.
I felt at ease from the moment I met Mr Connell, he was charming, respectful, discreet and gave me confidence to follow ‘the plan’. Given the nature of the surgery, I am glad it’s now behind me but very thankful for being in Mr Connell’s care. I would highly recommend him. My thanks also go to his secretary Michelle Burgess.
Dr Connell is just fab. He is very good at making you feel very comfortable in uncomfortable circumstances. He is compassionate and caring. His confidence in the procedure required gives you hope and confidence too. I highly recommend him.Thank you Dr Connell.
Mr Connell is an exceptionally good and charming surgeon. I have had the pleasure of being under his care over the past 5 years I have always received excellent treatment and highly recommend him. Keep doing what you do - as you’re the best!!
