The best surgeon I've ever come across.
Simply the best.
Never could I ever find words to thank you for what you did for me. I feel like I've been given a new start in life. Forever in your debt.
I just wanted to send you a thank you letter to express how pleased I am with the excellent results from the surgical procedure you performed on me in April. Your guidance and advice prior to the procedure was extremely helpful in enabling me to make an informed choice and I have been extremely pleased with the outcome of the operation which gave me the results I had hoped for and without any procedural complications.
A.M.'s Mother
She wants to shout and let the world know how your care has helped ease what has been a sometimes painful life of curiosity and often ridicule in her past...we would surely wish to acknowledge the considerable impact your involvement in our lives has made and is continuing to make.
I am thrilled at the difference in my appearance and everyone has commented on how "normal " I look, which only goes to show how much skill and dexterity was behind my operation! I am continually grateful to have enjoyed the medical attention of such a competent surgeon and his team - so Thank You.
My experience and surgical results far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Kirkpatrick, with your superb surgical skills I feel transformed. At all times, everybody was supportive, friendly and kind. I felt confident, in good hands with everyone involved in this process and will share my high recommendations to family, friends and colleagues. This was a very good (and painless!) experience.
A is overjoyed with the improvements you have achieved not only in the outwardly visible changes in her appearance but in the remarkable change brought about by a raising of her self-confidence. A wants to shout and let the world know how your care has helped ease what has been a sometimes painful life of curiosity and often ridicule in her past.
T.R.'s Parents
Thank you so much for looking after T so well in theatre. You made us all feel at ease under your care. Thank you again for all your kindness. We have never met such a kind doctor.
Thank you very much for so carefully planning and undertaking my rhinoplasty. Even though it is early days, I am delighted with the results of your surgery and would like to thank you and all your team for your wonderful care, kindness and expertise. I feel that my "new nose" has given me greater harmony and balance in my features."
I am in awe of your skills as a surgeon and always look forward to seeing you because then I feel reassured that things are ok at the moment. Thank you for your skills, support and reassurance.
I am overjoyed. Now my smiles are back on the face that has been lined with sadness and endurance for many years. I would like to pay my deepest respect to you and your family for granting us a marvellous miracle.
Thank you for being so supportive, thoughtful and kind to us. We trust you implicitly and know that C. couldn't be in better hands.
It is difficult to express how much we appreciate the care and concern you have shown him, and us, during his treatment. I am sure his path would have been considerably less smooth had you not kept such a close eye on him. He seems to be his old self and nearly his old shape already.
This is to express my profound thanks and gratitude for the surgery you kindly performed on my face last Wednesday, with excellent results.
I was very grateful to be encouraged to go ahead, confident in your expertise. The whole process was remarkably straight forward from the beginning to end and all my previous fears proved totally unnecessary. This was entirely due to your care and patience and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of the same services!
I don’t know how you guys do it, but you do! I feel good after my ops and just want to thank you on a personal level for the huge amount you have done for me and my recovery, I can only imagine what dark place I would be in without your invaluable help. I want you to know that from my point of view you guys rule the school, your actions in this world help people beyond anybody's ability to comprehend them, except of course your patients, people like me, so I wanted to say, Thank you so much!!
O.R.'s Parents
We will never forget your involvement in caring for O. We could not have wished him to be in safer hands.
I just wanted to profusely thank you for one of the clearest, most fascinating and well-presented talks we have had at MEDsoc for a long time. Everyone throughly enjoyed the talk and it gave us an insight into a whole field of surgery we all knew very little about.
My brother and I are very grateful to you for the care and kindness you have shown my mother during all her visits to you. You have been wonderfully patient and understanding, and helped her through a very trying time with your tremendous “bedside manner”. Mum is so relieved that it is all over, of course, and very pleased with the remarkable job you have done on her nose. I wear glasses and frankly can hardly tell her old nose from her new nose!
A.W.'s Parents
Thank you so much for caring for our daughter, and also for the great kindness and understanding you’ve shown to an over-anxious mother!
Dear Professor P. Thank you so much for recommending me to Mr Kirkpatrick the plastic surgeon dealing with PXE patients. Having had my operation I must tell you that Mr Kirkpatrick has used his skills to a first class degree, in fact, he has performed a miracle…..I am so pleased with the results.
You have no idea how impressed I have been by the way you treated me. If everybody in this world was like you there would be peace on this earth."
I just wanted to let you know that my nose has settled down nicely (beautifully actually). I can’t tell you what a difference your brilliant ops have made to the way I feel about myself.
S.'s Mother
Thank you so much for looking after S. You have been so kind and caring and always made us feel calm and relaxed. Every time you came to see us, we forgot how worried we were for S. You took away her pain and worry.
I just want to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for me. I have been waiting a long time to get my face corrected due to previous surgeries since the age of 13.
I would like to say how much I appreciate the expert surgery and ‘Repairs’ carried out so quickly, painlessly and with excellent results – it has made a tremendous difference. Thank you.
Don’t ever change Niall, we need people like you in the Health Service you are simply ‘The Best’.
C.'s Parents
Thank you for the support you have given all three of us during 2004. As you can see from the enclosed photos, C's eyelid looks so much better this Christmas compared with last.
I am very happy with the result of my surgery and I am grateful for the effort you've made to look after me throughout the whole process.
Thank you for the great care you offered to C, she has become a happier person!!
The whole experience of the operation to my lower eyelid from my point of view went really well medically, and aesthetically friends and family are amazed at the result. This I feel was down to your expertise and skill. I was quite apprehensive about the procedure but the way you explained everything to me made me feel confident that all would be well as indeed it has turned out to be.
G.S.'s Parents
We wanted to express our enormous gratitude for the amazing surgery that you performed on G last week. The result is quite beyond our expectations.
My contact with you has improved my clinical skills! You have demonstrated to me the difference between very good and excellent – and there is a very significant difference between the two, possibly a life changing difference. Thank you for your excellence in managing the reconstruction of my cheek/eye. You are an excellent and outstanding Consultant in every way. I definitely think that every hospital should have at least one of you in it!
My eyes are getting better by the days and each morning when I see myself in the mirror I cannot help thinking how good they look and they give me a tremendous lift to my mood and any hint of "Morning Blues!
A big Thank You for the work you performed on my ears. It has made a huge difference and has effected my confidence greatly.
A year on…. THANKYOU! I will forever be grateful for how well you put me back together.
Just wanted to say thank you for everything so far. Before I first met you I was deeply unhappy about my syndrome and was worried about any potential operations but when I met you, you immediately put my mind at ease and made me optimistic for the future. The first operation was the best thing that has ever happened to me and all the others have been amazing. I now feel a million times better internally/externally thanks to you and I know that any future ‘minor’ surgery will be done by a brilliant person and surgeon.
I can't even begin to thank you enough for everything you've done to help me. It really isn't an exaggeration to say that you've given me back my life. I feel like me again, and as good as I've heard you to be (The Best!). I honestly didn’t believe it was possible. I really thought I was unfixable. I’ll always be so grateful to you.
Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to see the amazing work you do. I have never felt more inspired and cannot wait to start medical school! I am immensely grateful and intend to continue fundraising for Facing the World.
I think you did a marvelous job on my eye, absolutely perfect! I thank you so much again.
I don’t have words that I could use to express my gratitude for you. You have simply given me back to me. You are no doubt one of the kindest most caring person I have met in my life. I am glad I found my way to you, and am forever grateful for the help you have given me.
I just wanted to write to say how pleased I am with my new scar, and to thank you and your team for all that you have done for me. I am amazed at how much better it looks! Thank you so much.
L.'s Father
Thank you so much for your kind help in looking after L. We were all in a state of shock on hearing the news of her accident and it was such a relief to learn that you had kindly made all those arrangements to look after her upon her arrival from France.
Thank you so much for the great repair job on my nose - my brutally honest family have given it the thumbs up! But most of all thank you for your time and care as I could not have been better looked after. The whole experience has been a true pleasure for me.
Thank you for excellent and skilled work. It is much appreciated.
Thank you for every thing you all have done for me. This has completely changed my life. I will never forget you.
I think it would be impossible to properly convey my thanks to you for your help and support over the past two months. You have shown your skillset to be second to none in every regard. Without you by my side, and the trust that you inspired, this whole ordeal would have been a lot harder to cope with. From day one you and your team went above and beyond what was ever asked. Thank you so much.
Just wanted to say a very big thank you not only for being extremely talented in your field but for always going the extra mile in all you do for the sake of your patients, and for that I can not thank you enough!
Dear Mr Kirkpatrick. Thank you for giving me my new face.
Thank you very much for the excellent work on my grandson's nose. We the family are all pleased with the outcome. God bless you and your continued success.
This is a huge thank you for being such a genius!. You are truly amazing and you have completely changed my life.
You made me feel like a special person when I first woke up from the surgery. I am very appreciate (sic) you are the best doctor in the world. Thanks for everythink (sic)
Words of gratitude and heartfelt good wishes are being poured onto this page. Thank you so very much for taking such good care of me. I am grateful in a profound way that words cannot express. I was blessed to be sent to you and to receive your good care.
R.M. (Medical Student0
I just wanted to say a quick thank you to all of you for making me feel so welcome over the past 3 weeks - I wish the attachment could have been longer I enjoyed it so much! It has been the best firm that I've had over the past six years, and I looked forward to coming in each day - the best was definitely saved to the end!!!
Thank you so much Dr Niall Kirkpatrick for my transformation! You have made me the happiest woman! Thank you for a wonderful treatment.
You have restored me to myself and my relief is profound....no words will do to describe adequately the gratitude I fee!!!
Thank you for my nose; it has changed my life
J.'s Parents
Thank you for all that you have done to give J the very fine and precise result from surgery that both she and ourselves had hoped for. We are so very grateful to you for all your kindness and care in explaining, planning and undertaking the surgery.
I don't think I can put into words how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. It has made a huge difference to my life and I am much more confident when I am talking to people....I just want to say a massive thanks for the brilliant job you have done. I will always be grateful and remember how well I was treated.
C.M. and J.
Thank you, as always for your kindness, care and fabulous surgical expertise.
I can't thank you enough for what you have done for me. You have given me my life back. I will always be so grateful to you for what you have done. Ill never forget you.
I just wanted to say thank you all so much for being such a great group of medical professionals. You truly put me at ease with your warmth, kindness and fun approach! As this procedure was something I had thought about for some time, I was a bit unsure – needless to say those concerns didn’t last for long! I appreciate all your help and good laughs.
Thank you so much for my operation – I love it! I can’t believe what an amazing job you and your team did! I’m very lucky to have met you and to be under your care. It has already given me so much more confidence and I know it will make me feel so much more relaxed in any group situations. I can’t thank you enough!
E.V L.
I’m writing to thank you so very much for returning my face to me. You’ve been incredibly sympathetic towards what was essentially self-inflicted damage by having fillers injected. Very patient when, during surgery both times, I tried to talk because I was scared. So clear in explaining what needed to be done. Communication was everything. The result is better than I could ever have imagined. I had come to terms, emotionally, with a worse scar. It is miraculous. I won’t pretend to understand what you had to do – I wish I did – you must be extraordinarily gifted to get it so right. I have a quiet idea of the years of work needed to make this possible. I am so very grateful for both operations and the wonderful aftercare.
I'm overwhelmed by your kind help. I can’t thank you enough.
I am writing to thank you for the wonderful care you showed me when my nose was disfigured through filler. I am so thrilled with the results from the Rhinoplasty surgery you performed I am smiling again and my confidence has returned. I was hardly bruised which is testimony to your wonderful skill.
I cannot thank you enough for the radical improvement of my under eye area….I could not be happier with the result. I am no longer embarrassed by my ‘tired’ baggy eyes and have more confidence in public now. Plus I also no longer have the dry eye problem which is a huge plus. I hardly ever look in a mirror now. There is simply no need anymore because I am no longer anxious. And this in turn has made me feel healthier. Brilliant!
I really just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for me. Words can not express the gratitude that I feel. You have given me the courage to undergo so much with wonderful results.
I just wanted to say thank you so much, I know this is your everyday job but it has changed my life!
For me, you have been the person who has helped me to recuperate my health with your kindness and sensitivity. I do not have words to thank you for everything you did for me throughout these last years.
Thank you so much for the surgery under my eye. It was something that was depressing me each day. I am extremely pleased with the result. You really are wonderful!
How will I ever be able to thank you for what you have done for me. You have taken me out of a very black hole and given me hope for the future. It is quite remarkable that you were willing to take me on in the first place and then fit me into your very busy diary and do that amazing surgery to my face. I am blown away by your kindness and excellence.
Just wanted to say thank you and let you know how pleased I am with the outcome. I definitely feel more happy and confident with my appearance now.
It is just over one month since you operated on me (SMAS; mid-facelift and anterior platysmaplasty) and I am writing to tell you how delighted I am with the result. The bruising has dissappeared completely; the scars are resolving/subsiding well. I feel that you have gifted me a new, updated version of the old F.E. with the enhanced energy and optimism to match. I shall be forever grateful for your consummate professionalism, care, empathy and aesthetic genius.
I am just sending this email to tell you how pleased I am with my nose. It is literally life changing for me!
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the work you have done on my nose. You have done exactly what I have asked for, and stuck exactly to the photos I gave you! Thanks so much.
I am continually moved by your kindliness, your goodness of heart and your giftedness as a surgeon. You have a warm benevolence and an exceptional talent which you bring to your work - work which has changed patients' lives for the better, not least my own.
Last August you operated on my nose and did the most beautiful job. You really did change my life and transform my confidence and I can not thank you enough for what you have given me.
I can not thank you enough for your kindness, generosity and time you have taken to carry out my rhinoplasty. You are an amazing person and doctor!
Thank you so much for the amazing work you do. You have changed my life literally. My confidence is 100% more than I used to be and most of all I like what I see looking back at me in the mirror. Once again thank you for everything.
Thank you soo much for my new nose. It has massively changed my life and confidence. Also thanks for answering all my questions thoroughly and for listening to the specific requirements I had around the nose shape. The team were all fantastic.
Thank you! I am indebted to you for your good care and treatment. A great result! Many thanks.
I just wanted to say thank you for everything. Not just because you're an incredible surgeon, but because of your kind, sensitive and compassionate nature. I knew of your reputation beforehand but you had exceeded all of my expectations, and I'm so grateful. Thank you for giving me back my self esteem and confidence.
Whenever I look at my neck, I see that you have done artistic genius work. Thank you so much.
So many thank yous in deep appreciation for all your kind reassurance as I recovered from my burn. I knew I was in "expert hands" (no pun intended due to my non-dominant mishap} the moment you spoke with me. Because of your care & attention I healed. That lovely organ we call skin was rejuvenated ...
Many, many thanks for all your kind care, attention, expertise and skills, providing me with reassurance and clarity during my recent treatment. The facial reconstruction surgery of six months ago has given me an outstanding excellent result for which I am truly grateful. A brilliant outcome. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have had access to such high quality medical care. With grateful thanks.
