Personal approach statement

I have been with my parents on the other side of the fence, as such believe me when I say I do understand what you are going through. All I can say is: come to me and allow me to put your mind at rest, together we will find the best solution for you and if I can find it myself I will make sure I will refer you to someone who can. I will prove you that I genuinely care about you. 

I am Consultant Thoracic Chest Surgeon based in London.
