  • Mr Agwunobi and the team, Thank you ever so much, for not only perfectly repairing my double lower inguinal hernia, but for engineering the timing of the procedure around my busy work schedule. The professionalism and friendliness of you and your staff set the standards that the rest of the medical industry should be aiming for. First class, well done. J.S Stockport

  • I recently underwent a 'Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication,' under the expert care of Mr Anselm Agwunobi. From the first moment that I met him until I was recently discharged from his care, I felt completely at ease. His warm, understanding and caring attitude, together with his astounding expertise, meant that my surgery and aftercare was utterly outstanding. Mr Ogwunobi is, without doubt, an outstanding surgeon. His surgery has completely changed my life for the better, with a faultless operation and absolutely minimal scarring. Within weeks following his Laprascopic surgery, I was eating normally, albeit smaller portions. I have heard that some patients after this procedure still have problems months or years later, with significant scarring. I know that recovery and the appearance of surgery are wholly and totally a result of the expertise of the surgeon, and in Mr Agwunobi's case, this is exemplary and second to none! I cannot fault his manner, work, and total professionalism. It has been an absolute pleasure to be in his care and I cannot recommend him highly enough!  I would not hesitate to recommend this consummate professional. One cannot fail to be impressed by this wonderful surgeon/consultant. Kind regards, M.P, Didsbury

  • I would like to praise Mr Anselm Agwunobi for his professionalism in his work when operating on me on 1st April. When it comes to customer values I was catered for fully. An asset to the profession. If I was to offer any feedback at all it would be to switch to a true blue. A true professional. Thank you. PW, Manchester

  • Many thanks for the smoothest procedure and recovery I have undertaken in my life. I am very grateful for the life change you have given me. Ms A.A, Altrincham

  • This is just a very small token of my appreciation towards you and all the medical staff involved in my operation. Saying thank you does not seem like enough, as the operation you performed on me has been life changing. My immediate family feels the same as I do. So thank you very much indeed, it means the world. Mr R.M, Liverpool

  • Thank you for all the work, support and time you have given to me. You have restarted my life and vastly improved my health. My surgery has totally boosted my confidence and eased my social and family environment. I have never felt so relaxed and at ease as I did with your team. Once again, thank you for giving me back my life and a future. I will always remember you. M.F, Liverpool

  • Just a little note to say thank you for looking after me during my stay at The Alexandra Hospital. I could not have asked for better treatment and you really put me at ease regarding the operation. A.B, Blackburn

  • I’d just like to say how much I appreciate what you have done for me. Your kindness will always be in my heart. Ms C.K, Blackburn

  • I thought I’d drop you a note after you met with my wife and discussed the problem she’s been having with acid reflux. I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the care and concern you’ve shown her. She has suffered for the best part of a year having tests, drugs, and consultations and it has caused her the utmost anxiety. The relief after her consultation with you was remarkable. We hear many concerns about our health care professionals being short of the mark, but we feel blessed to be under the care of such an outstanding consultant. Mr J.G, Crewe

  • Thank you so much for doing my operation. You have changed my life forever! I am sure you think you were just doing your job, but really, honestly you change people’s lives. Ms S.W, Isle of Man
