Having arrived in lots of pain I was very well evaluated using all necessary diagnosis means. I cannot fault the care, treatment and advice that I have received. A credit to Mediclinic. I would not hesitate to recommend Doctor Ahmad to anyone that I know. Thank you.
Both Dr Yacoub and his nurse Gladie put me at ease and made the procedure as painless as possible. Both of them were very kind and patient with me.
An amazing doctor (orthopaedic), very kind and caring, explains each thought and action in a very relatable way, very knowledgeable and good hands in dealing with affected limb , respects the patient and listen s to them, alleviates patients rational and irrational concerns, I had a surgical procedure and found him to be of high quality of expertise
Everything was more than expected, everything was explained and any questions always had a detailed explanation
Doctor Ahmad is professional and has helped me overcome painful experiences. First with examination then gave me details of my injury which is now much better. Highly recommended orthopedic.
Dr Ahmad is amazing compassionate and friendly. I give him 100% respect. He is knowledgeable and ethical.
