“Mr Samsudin was very profesional yet empathetic and put me at ease immediately. He fully explained everything he was doing during my initial examination. Following an ultra sound scan he explained what was wrong and what he could do to rectify my condition. He was also careful to explain the possibility of re-occurence. Appropriate literature was provided that further explained my diagnosed condition. He was very re-assuring prior to surgery.“

Mr Samsudin firstly I want to sincerely thank you for everything you have done for me and my family over the past months. I can’t find enough words that will justify just how blessed I was to be under your care. His approach in explaining things to me and my wife, patience, honesty and empathy at all times was just astonishing. Mr Samsuden was my consultant and also conducted my surgery. The last 2 months have been testing times for me and my wife. Being told you have cancer is one of the most challenging things I have ever had to contend with. His expertise, professionalism throughout this whole journey again has been astonishing in fact world class. There is a saying it takes special people to do really special things!!! Mr Samsuden without doubt firmly sits within this category. Sincere thank you for everything you have done for me and have continued to do. Thank god I picked your name from a list of consultants that I was given. Keep saving life’s you are amazing

Mr Azi Samsudin

Many thanks for your great review, I’m truly humbled. I’m so glad that my team and myself have been able to complete the surgical part of your treatment before this coronavirus pandemic has taken hold. It has been my pleasure, all the best for the future.

As a 62 year old man it came as quite a shock to find out that I needed a circumcision due to suffering with phimosis.On the day of my procedure Mr Samsudin came to see me and explained exactly what I was about to experience,putting me completely at ease.He explained any possible after effects in a way that I found very assuring.During the procedure his conversation to both myself and his support staff was excellent .I cannot thank Mr Samsudin and the staff at Fairfield enough for their professional attitude and treatment. I had a painless and straightforward recovery and would recommend Mr Samsudin most highly.

Mr Samsudin made me feel very comfortable, he explained in detail without overwhelming me with any medical jargon about my condition. I didn’t feel rushed or patronised as often is the case with the medical profession. Even though he did not have all my details, he managed to get the results via the nurse whilst I was waiting which was very reassuring and saved me worrying unnecessarily and visiting my own GP. Unfortunately he is not my regular consultant as I am an NHS patient, but I would be a lot more reassured if he was.

During all my consultations with Mr Samsudin I was made to feel relaxed, at ease and was given detailed explanations of all the procedures needed to satisfactorally treat my condition. This was always delivered in a clear, concise and factual manner without ambiguity, thereby allowing complicated issues to be easily understood. Prior to the actual procedure being performed I was met by Mr Samsudin and his team of medical co-worker/colleagues which I found most helpful, allaying any apprehensions I had regarding the operation. A thorough resume' of my previous medical history and medication was made and I was given ample opportunity to discuss any further concerns I had. Everyone made a co-ordinated effort to make me feel at ease which again was most reassuring and was a good example of of the 'team' leadership skills engendered by the Consultant Urologist. The subsequent after-care and follow-up consultations confirmed to me that I had made a wise choice in selecting St. Helens & Knowsley N.H.S. Trust (plus its excellent medical facilities) in general and Mr Samsudin's expert skills in particular. I would unreservedly recommend this Consultant to anyone seeking similar medical support!

I have recently undergone a urolift procedure following a consultation with Mr Samsudin . From the outset Mr Samsudin went to great lengths to explain in detail the options that were available and I decided upon the above procedure almost immediately given the non invasive treatment. Mr Samsudin was very professional with a personable style which made me extremely comfortable during our consultations. Prior to this procedure I suffered with a prostate condition and had difficulty in urinating which at times was quite painful ,typically I would also wake at least on 3 or 4 occasions during the night. Post operation my flow rate is greatly improved and I no longer have to go to the toilet at night more than once or twice. I consider the operation a great success and my quality of life is much improved and would have no hesitation in recommending both the operation and Mr Samsudin to anyone suffering prostate problems

I am seventy-three and have had prostate problems for many years. My experience with some consultants in the past made me steer away from TURPS but Mr Samsudin explained everything to me and how he would carry out the procedure. From the start, I felt at ease with his manner and he arranged to go ahead with the operation. It was expected that I would be in the hospital for two days but I was up and about the next day and was discharged. I did not require a catheter and apart from some stinging for a few days, I feel completely different and no longer have to get up three or four times a night. I would like to say a big thank you to Mr Samsudin and his team for the change it has made to me.
