Patient Testimonials

The following are testimonials from Glamorgan Urology patients:

Mr Howard Baker

I came across Andy Thomas by chance. I was advised by my GP to see a consultant immediately after my appointment with him. The GP recommended several consultants in my area who were unable to see me. When I went back to the GP to tell him the next available appointment would be in a couple of weeks the GP said that was not acceptable & that although he hadnít actually met Andy Thomas before he had heard good reports about him.

We told Andy Thomasí team that we had been advised that my problem was urgent & he saw me that afternoon! Not only did we have a consultation that day, in Cardiff, but he was keen to do further tests on the same day so we drove down to Bridgend that evening and further tests were undertaken.

Since then I have had a series of procedures & consultations & have felt totally confident in the hands of Mr Thomas and his team. Whenever I go back to the hospital there is always a smiling face and a very warm welcome, making the whole experience less daunting than it could be.

I would thoroughly recommend Andrew Thomas, Bridgend Clinic and Glamorgan Urology.

Welsh GP

By providing the Template biopsy technique for a complete examination of the entire prostate, Mr Andy Thomas and his colleagues are the only urological team in Wales that provide this state of the art technique which assesses both anterior and posterior parts of the prostate.

This service is provided rapidly , with empathy , consideration and explanation at every step of the process. This is a personal experience, and I believe traditional TRUS biopsies may not have discovered my disease.

Mr Ken Jackson

I have known Mr Thomas for several years now, having had two minor and one major operations performed by him.

The care and attention he has shown me has been second to none and he still monitors my progress with the ultimate concern.

For my money, anything in the Urology department, Andy Thomas is the man.

Mr Steve Lewis

My first meeting as a patient with Mr Andy Thomas was in early 2010 at the Bridgend Clinic, Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend. From the onset I was very impressed with his personality and manner, and was made to feel extremely positive about my condition.

Throughout the period of tests and the consequent operation, Andy Thomas gained my, and other's total admiration as a person and a surgeon.

My Nephrectomy operation has been successful, and my gratitude must go to Andy Thomas and his team for the superb treatment and care received whilst in The Bridgend Clinic.

My follow-up checks and further unrelated small surgical operation have again reinforced my view that I have been extremely fortunate to be in the care of someone I hold in the highest esteem.

Mr Ron Griffiths

My GP advised a non urgent referral for urinary issues in 2005, but from his letter Andy Thomas decided otherwise and saw me straight away. I was immediately impressed by the insightfulness of this decision. I was diagnosed with locally advanced prostate cancer within a week and my symptoms relieved by Green Light Laser.

Since then I have been under the constant care of Andy and his team. Dealing with cancer is never easy, but Andyís upbeat manner and the absolute accuracy in defining the situation and best way forward has undoubtedly allowed me to carry on working for the last 5 years in a busy international job and pursue outdoor activities including skiing every year.

I have been referred for radiotherapy, then cryotherapy as a follow up, (another insightful decision after a small rise in PSA level) and through regular consultations Andy has kept one step ahead of the disease at all times by regular testing and scans.

I have nothing but praise for Andy and his team, he is always available with good advice and the patient is always top priority.

Mr Paul Morgan

I would like to thank you and your team for the professional and courteous services provided to me recently. Even for someone as large as life as me, personal matters can be quite embarrassing. As you could tell it had taken me a long time to even approach my own doctor and enduring some painful experiences to avoid embarrassment before eventually coming to see you.

From the moment we met at the Cardiff Centre for the initial consultation, to the time I left the Bridgend Clinic after the operation and returning to see you yesterday for the follow up I did feel I was in safe hands.

wish you and the team every success for the future and even more so with your charity work for Glaze Charity and Prostrate Wales something hopefully I will never experience the need to use but am more than willing to support when and where I can.
