“Excellent treatment and care. Mr Yazbek was very proactive and managed the balance of providing me with all the information I needed so I felt some element of control over my health issue, but also guiding me to make the best decision for my health. He was patient and dealt with all my questions with great courtesy. Nothing was too much trouble. When my condition became more of an emergency he was excellent at overcoming any barriers or bureaucracy so I could be taken for surgery as soon as possible. For my day patient operation he was reassuring good humoured and calming and at all times I felt I was in the best hands possible. Post operative care was also exemplary. Swift follow up and advice. I could not have asked for me more. I would definitely recommend Mr Yazbek. “

Mr Yazbek is an exceptional consultant. I went to see him due to issues with several very large fibroids and a reluctance to have surgery. He soon reassured me I was in good hands taking his time to talk me through the recommended procedure and recovery process. He has a very approachable, calming, patient and compassionate professional manner and always took time to answer all my questions before and after my surgery. I appreciate all the visits I had from him and his colleagues during the few days I was in hospital after my myomectomy. Thanks to Mr Yazbek and his team, although my condition was complexed, the surgery went very well with minimal scarring and my recovery was so much better than I had thought it would be prior to the procedure. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

As soon as I met Mr Yazbek I felt at ease. I had been avoiding a surgery for many months because of previous bad experiences elsewhere. Mr Yazbek allowed me to take a deep breath of relief, as I felt completely safe in his hands. I received excellent care from Mr Yazbek who was always so patient and kind with my many questions and worries. He always took time to explain things to me, and to discuss options. I am so pleased that I finally found Mr Yazbek, and I would highly recommend him.

I have been a patient of Mr Yazbek for a few years. Mr Yabek is extremely professional and knowledgeable and one of the best doctors in his field. I am especially impressed with how caring and kind Mr Yazbek is. He always manages to see me on a short notice, always returns my calls on the same day and is always there to consult me or to organise that I see another doctor, when this is necessary. Our daughter, who is 18 years old, is also a patient of Mr Yazbek and is extremely happy that he is her doctor. It is very rarely that one can find a doctor of such calibre and I cannot recommend Mr Yazbek highly enough.

Mr Yazbek is a knowledgeable, skilled and sensible clinician. In addition to his excellent surgical skills, he adopts a holistic approach to Women’s Health. He is sensitive, empathetic, charming and certainly very professional in all his patient interactions. As a cancer patient in my early 40s, the ordeal as terrifying as it was, was ameliorated for both my family and I by the knowledge that I was in very safe, caring and competent hands. My post- operative care and follow-up has been prompt, thorough and tailored to my individual needs. I have been giving excellent advice and support to help me manage my future concerns and expectations. I am deeply grateful to Mr Yazbek for helping me manage a life-changing diagnosis and could not have asked for better care. I man

The first time I went to see Mr J. Yazbek was for uterine fibroids and after that for different issues. His level of professionalism and patient care is outstanding. He takes time to listen, to hear your concerns and helps you to understand providing detail information on what is next to come. He is an excellent doctor and I highly recommend to others. Dr. J Yazbek’s staff is very nice and helpful.

Mr Yazbeck is an excellent doctor but also a very caring human being. He has helped me through a very difficult and uncertain period in my life, always being very open with me on the different options available, always listening to my concerns and being available 24/7 to answer any questions or making himself available if any pain, concern or doubt. I have always felt in the best hands and when he wanted me to make additional tests not in his field, he has arranged for me to meet the best doctors. His secretary Ms Bouton has always been very helpful to arrange meetings or tests even last minute. I would highly recommend him to anyone and am very grateful for being under the care of such a good doctor.
