    I can’t thank him enough. He not only gave me a future which I was scared I’d lost but he took time to sit and talk to me before my operation to reassure me and explain what was going to happen. He also saw me after to tell me it had gone ok. At a follow up meeting after surgery he explained clearly my results and couldn’t have been nicer.

    Mr Firas Younis handling of my diagnosis, operation and post operative appointment was 1st class. He was clear and concise in explaining my cancer diagnosis and what treatment I would be having. He delivered all the information in a calm and supportive manner and instilled great confidence in me that I was in very safe hands. He made sure that I understood everything that was happening to me and was extremely patient when I obviously had lots of questions about my cancer diagnosis. His post operative checks whilst I was in hospital were reassuring and his whole focus was on me as the patient. I am very grateful for Mr Younis’s skills as a surgeon and for the positive outcome of my operation.
