Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
Can I ask why you would want to go private instead of NHS?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The NHS cannot confirm a time, or how long the wait may be

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for this reply Richard.
Of course you can get it done privately. It is just a matter of cost.
The cost for this type of procedure would be very high. I would estimate in the realm of 50,000 USD.

I assume the USD figure means this estimate is for the US.

As the site is called just answer.uk I hoped to have a UK based feedback.

Apologies for any confusion in my original question.

kind regards

Richard

No I just meant the cost will be the same for what we charge here
Just translate into euros.
so about 42,000 euros
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

That would be about £33000 pounds.
