I found Mr Shah to be extremely approachable and clear in his explanations of my condition and what he would do during the operation. I had complete faith in his capabilities. Mr Shah was most pleasant.
All my interactions with Mr Shah were excellent. From his initial explanation of my back problem, the procedure he would carry out, the operation itself & the follow up, Mr Shah provided all the information I needed, in a clear & precise manner, which put me at ease & alleviated my fears.
Trust in the healthcare professional is the single most important element from the perspective of the patient. Mr Shah was such a kind, thoughtful, respectful and knowledgeable surgeon, trust was inevitable and freely given. All aspects of his care carried out thoroughly and diligently. Excellent care throughout. I would highly recommend Mr Shah.
Mr Shah Examined me thoroughly and then explained the various options open to me. Each option was explained clearly and a percentage of success given as guidance. As a result of this process, I felt very comfortable with the decision I made and the skill of Mr Shah. Following on from the treatment agreed, I am more than happy with the results.
Very pleased with the whole experience from initial consultation to post-op review.
Very friendly professional manner and sympathetic careful explanations.
Mr Yousaf Shah put me at ease straight away, listened carefully to my problem, explained in detail my X-ray results, and my options to aid recovery. He has a professional and thoughtful manner and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Mr Shah is respectful, explains clearly and answers my questions.
After suffering with a torn disc in my spine, I had been seeking help for around a year to no prevail. On my first appointment with Mr Shah I felt at complete ease and felt I'd finally found a medical professional who cared and listened. He was professional, friendly, and so patient. He acted quickly in diagnosing the specific problem and gave me options which we discussed at length so I was fully informed. I never thought that being taken into surgery for spinal surgery would feel so calm and comfortable. Mr Shah was incredible with his care and compassion even after an initial failed procedure (completely down to me) he acted quickly in getting me booked back in. At only 28 years old he has given me my life back and given my Daughters their Mum back for which I will be eternally grateful. I couldn't have found a better medical professional.
From the initial consultation to the day of the operation Mr Shah went through the procedure he would perform very clearly and informative. I am now pain free, painkiller free, back enjoying life
