"Chelsea and Westminster Bariatric Team"

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I have been under the care of Mr Efthimiou since early 2012 when I was referred for a gastric bypass by my GP. I had my bypass in September 2012 and since then have had several complications. The care I have received from Mr Efthimiou is so far beyond outstanding its difficult to explain. He has always talked my care through with me, ensure I have known what is happening / likely to happen, communicated with my Mum who is overseas when it was discovered I would need a laparotomy and always given me outstanding care. I genuinely do not feel I could have asked for better or even find one fault. The dieticians and the bariatric psychologist and clinical nurse specialist are all equally as good at working together and ensuring we get the best possible outcome from our surgeries. I will be forever thankful for the care Mr Efthimiou has given me so far and continues to give.
