Delighted is an understatement

5 50 Mole Removal

I had a large unsightly mole on my left cheek , so after many years I decided to start the process of getting it removed . The NHS said as it was benign no treatment was available. I started looking privately. After looking at the options and huge variation in cost I decided to contact the Stratford clinic .

I telephoned to enquire was told an appointment could be made within 3 days with Mr Venus and that the procedure could probably take place the same time - great news. I arrived great reception coffee etc , Mr Venus saw me immediately , went through the all the options etc we decided on excision within 45 minutes I was done and on my way home . Fantastic! The staff at the clinic were lovely , Mr Venus a very nice guy and a highly qualified Consultant Plastic Surgeon. £302 is all it cost , I have a neat small scar and to say I was delighted with the result is an understatement! I totally recommend Matthew Venus and the Stratford Clinic . I did enough to research prior to my choice and am delighted with the result. Thank you Mr Venus and staff you are all true professionals.
