Nothing prepares you for being told you have cancer. I’ve experienced first-hand in my own family the trauma that a cancer diagnosis, and treatment, causes to patients and the people close to them.

When patients are anxious and vulnerable they need kindness, empathy and somebody to listen and answer their questions, but above all, an experienced oncologist with good clinical judgement able to provide the best treatment.

My goal is to meet these needs and to be approachable and available for advice and support.

Everything was explained to me thoroughly, using language and statistics I could understand. He and his team are simply fantastic and I couldn’t have felt safer in their hands.
His approach immediately puts you at ease. He is a great support to me and I trust him implicitly.
Dr Burcombe is very knowledgeable, efficient, reassuring and approachable. I am very happy indeed with the level of care I have received from him and would have no hesitation in recommending him.
I am so grateful for my excellent medical care and all your support.
A true professional, but mixed with a very human side in dealing with people.
I trust him completely and am now 8 years cancer free. Thank you.
He listened to me and explained every aspect of my treatment/condition in language I understood!
He has a sympathetic ear, and can be relied upon to go the extra mile in exploring potential treatment options.
I can't recommend Dr Burcombe enough. A truly empathetic and considerate professional.
