I have now seen Mr Fakouri twice. The first time I saw him, I was in so much pain, I could barely stay conscious! He prescribed a regime of medication that I should promptly begin and the results were immediate. A massive drop in my pain levels, to the point where I now feel stronger each day. I saw him again two weeks later for a follow-on consultation and we discussed my options for long term treatment. I felt heard and he patiently explained each option and what it entailed. I am delighted with my choice of Mr Fakouri for my care. I feel in very safe hands and his bedside manner is excellent.
Hi, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave such positive feedback. I'm really pleased that you had a good experience and that you are recovering well. Agreed, Bahram is one of our most experienced spinal specialists with a very warm and reassuring bedside manner. We wish you all the best.
Extremely caring professional who gave me such confidence in the decision to undergo the precision.
Mr Fakouri had a charming manner; he took time to explain his diagnosis and the required treatment.
He gave the impression that he was on top of his area of expertise
Mr. Fakouri is best in class in the way he engaged with me and conducted a complex surgery. He was very good at explaining my situation and my options, including alternatives that did not include surgery, which was his area of expertise. He gave me the confidence that he was always objective. When surgery became the inevitable option, he was decisive. I saw immediate improvement after the surgery. His caring personality and competency were blessing when facing a stressful situation.
