Very professional & considerate
When I visited Mr Belal I had not had a diagnosis and so I was very relieved when he explaned what was wrong with me and what could be done to treat it . He explained what would happen during the tratment and what the risks would be. I am very glad that I came to see Mr Belal as his friendly possitive attidude gave me confidence when I was feeling pretty low. I now feel in very good health after the operation and am very greatful to Mr Belal and the rest of the staff for the care and attention I received
Given my operation was quite an invasive procedure the entire experience went much better than I expected. From the first consultation until the last review Dr. Belal always spoke with upmost empathy. He explained quite diligently the procedure along with risks and associated probabilities. Dr. Belal came to see me before my procedure and again explained exactly what to expect, which made me feel a little more relaxed. Dr. Belal is a very caring professional who and has changed my life completely. Thank you very much.
Mr Belal agreed to see me at very short notice after another Doctor canceled my appointment without notification and from that point on I've been really pleased and impressed with Mr Belal he's always happy, pleasant and can't do enough for you, he even came to check on me in hospital on a Saturday morning. Many thanks for the professional manner in which you conducted the investigation, solved the issue and got me back to full fitness ...
Highly skilled, reassuring and knowledgeable sums up Mr Belal who has looked after me for the past 10 months. I have seen several different consultants over the previous 4 years who were unable to correctly diagnose my symptoms; resulting in several unsuccessful procedures until I was recommended to see Mr Belal. He is always courteous and explains in detail what he intends to do or what he has done. I cannot thank him enough for the life-changing relief as a result of my procedure - thank you for going the extra mile with a smile & true professionalism. You are truly AMAZING! - Thank you again.
An excellent experience. Mr Belal is an extremely professional, empathetic, caring and knowledgeable Consultant. My symptoms were thoroughly investigated and treated successfully.
I am a female patient, 68 years old. In March 2019 Mr Belal carried out an enterocystoplasty operation - essentially a bladder re-construction. I had a history of bladder urgency and frequency, day and night over some 2.5/3 years. I also had a long history of Crohn's disease, but this was in remission. Given my presentation, Mr Belal gave me clear, understandable options. I chose an enterocystoplasty operation. All of the pre-op appointments were carried out within a few weeks, and an operation date and details provided within 6 weeks of initial appointment. The website was very helpful. Pre-op investigations were conveniently scheduled and well-organised. The operation was expertly undertaken and was unproblematic; 2.5 days were spent in ICU initially in order that I could be monitored v regularly and consistently. The time in I C U was completely stress-free. I was transferred to a ward, with an initial estimation of discharge within 5/6 days; however, my bowel ptroved problematic - it failed to re-start properly following the operation ( paralytic ileus) and my discharge was delayed due to this problem. In terms of a review, the medical and nursing care I received throughout was first-class: staff were helpful, informative and kind. I would recommend Mr Belal's expertise and care unreservedly; he visited me frequently, monitoring my progress very carefully with the staff team, and his approach was meticulous. It is only 2 months following the operation but my frequency of urination is transformed. Physio therapy help and an exercise regime have been v helpful, and are continuing. I am a Scot, belonging to a nation of people not renowned for their effusive praise; for me, however, Mr Belal is the exception - he is " simply the best".
Very pleased with results. Had a very thorough consultation and was spoken through all the options for my surgery. Was taken care of from start to finish and extremely happy. Would definitely recommend Mr Belal.
