Doctor Sidebottom was friendly, responsive and made me happy I chose him for my daughters surgery. My daughter complained of no pain at all after the surgery and I genuinely believe it’ll be because of how well Doctor Sidebottom did the op. Thank you

Thank you for your comments. I will also pass onto the anaesthetic team as they also will have provided good analgesic management.

Professor Sidebottom was diligent, caring and professional throughout the consultation. He considered all aspects of the patients well being and not simply the condition in isolation. He involved me in decision making and discussed all options clearly.

I can not recommend Mr sidebottom and his team enough. They all went above and beyond to make my daughters teeth removal as easy and comfortable as possible. The nurses went out of their way to make sure I was ok too while she was in. Outstanding
