He works closely with patients to ensure there is understanding between patient and surgeon to maximise the chances of achieving the aims and objectives each patient wants, while maintaining realistic expectations of what can likely be achieved.
Mr Jones has regular busy clinic and operating lists at Tees Valley Hospital, where the hospital and staff are able to support a cohesive package of care for each patient. All patients considering cosmetic procedures are seen on at least two separate occasions within the single consultation fee. There is sufficient downtime allowed in between assessment and treatment to ensure that patients are certain about their treatment plans, and that both patient and surgeon are clear on the goals.
