Patients comments

Finding and consulting with Professor Garrard has been a huge relief. He is a kind and compassionate man possessing extraordinary patience, which made talking to him about difficult subjects remarkably easy. He has the rare gift of being able to find things out which one would otherwise forget and took meticulous care discovering everything he could about the nature of my problem. He gave an excellent and thorough analysis of my scans with visual aids that were marvellously helpful to my understanding my position. Nothing was too much trouble for Professor Garrard, and I felt profoundly reassured and supported by an eminent clinician whose knowledge in his field is second to none. I am extremely grateful and glad to have met him and will be taking his advice for the future with confidence. Thank you very much indeed for everything.
