    Explanation (5/5)
    I was so worried about even discussing my proceedure before my initial consultation however as soon as I had spoken to Mr Hamouda all my worries went away! He was so kind and supportive, providing information and answering any questions I had along the way. On the day of my op, I felt nervous but reassured of his experience and support. Everything went perfectly, speedy recovery, lots of follow up and I couldn’t be happier looking back over the procedure, the experience and his care throughout. Thankyou !

    My whole experience with Mr Hamounda was fantastic. He respected my worries and mental well being. Due to being over weight I find going to the doctors very stressful and often have panic attacks. I explained this to Mr Hamounda and he was really considerate and sympathetic. He’s a very kind and caring person.
