RECENT TESTIMONIALS

My mother visited Dr Shaerf today and on the way to see him she had nothing but praise for him as she had dealt with him before, she said what an amazing doctor (consultant) and man, he was very patient with me and even though i missed an appointment he made it easy for me to book another one. As i went with her to her appointment what my mother said was absolutely true, the manner in which he dealt with her was to an extremely high standard and very thorough and understanding he made my mother leave with a smile on her face. Thank you Dr Shaerf.

Dr Shaerf recently operated on my hand at Eailing hospital and the care he has provided has been absolutely excellent. I was concerned that due to the injury sustained that I may not have full use of my hand again, but Dr Shaerf talked me through my options and advised me of how we could achieve the best result possible. Having surgery is naturally a worrying time but I was made to feel completely at ease and all of my questions were thoroughly answered. I have private medical insurance in place but following my first consultation with Dr Shaerf he filled me with such confidence that I opted to stay under his care. I am delighted with the results of the surgery and am now on the road to recovery... I cannot thank Dr Shaerf enough for his patience and expertise!

He is quite a remarkable man - a great surgeon. But mostly the ‘man’ himself is hugely praiseworthy. He has an ability to look you straight in the eyes, gives you what could be devastating news but at the same time giving such reassurance that you know you are in great hands. Working closely with my oncologist he performed terrific surgery on my finger, leaving the neatest scar - a work of art!

But mostly I was able to watch an ‘artist’ at work, someone who paid enormous respect to his team - from the lowest to the highest member, who was gentle, kind and considerate to all around him, not forgetting the patient!

I can’t praise Mr. Shaerf enough - as a person and as a surgeon.

I had surgery on my right hand. Dr Shaerf explained what the surgery would be like and recovery period. He was very patient and took time to make sure I understood. He was very caring and helpful. My hand is healing very well all thanks to Dr Shaerf. I thank you once again for all the care and support you showed to me, before and after surgery.
