"Vascular care and surgery"

About: York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

(as a relative),

My partner was referred to Miss Ikponmwosa in December 2015. She instantly diagnosed his need for surgery to his leg.

After consultation the procedure was performed within 3 days! On July 1st he suffered a stroke. Miss Ikponmwose again was the consultant. She performed a carotid endarterectomy with skill precision and great care. I cannot praise her highly enough. She was kind, courteous understanding and willing to spend her precious time in giving explanations as to all the medical implications and procedures involved; not only that she appeared to be working excessively long hours but she never varied in her kind and totally professional approach to her patients.

This lady is an absolute star and a credit to the NHS

It's great to hear that Miss Ikponmwosa was able to diagnose your partners medical problem quickly and that surgery was performed so soon afterwards.

I am very pleased to hear that you were both treated with kindness and courtesy throughout.

I do hope your partner is now fit and well.

Wishing you both the best for the New Year
