Romi Navaratnam is one of the finest surgeons I have ever worked with, combining judgement, clinical skill and acumen with intelligence and exemplary communication. He is very personable and has a particularly human touch, which is often missing. We have dealt with very serious cancers together and patients feel very well cared for and spoken to about their situation. He is abreast of the latest techniques and I am very lucky to be able to work with Romi and hope to do so more going forward.
I have been working very closely with Dr Wong over the past 12 years. I have found he is able to give a comprehensive gastroenterology service. He is an excellent technician, compassionate and is well liked by patients, colleagues and paramedical staff. As such, I have no hesitation in strongly recommending him as a gastroenterologist.
Nick is a very good diagnostician & pelvic floor surgeon. He has a big interest in laparoscopy for endometriosis. He is very compassionate to his patients, especially those with complex disease processes.
