“Mr Mohamed was shortlisted for me by my private health insurance provider. I consulted with Mr Mohamed for an issue I had and found him to be both professional and highly personable and sympathetic (I was a little worried about going through with the procedure based on a previous bad experience I had had - not with him). The whole process went very smoothly with no discomfort and suitable handholding by all those involved. I can only thank Mr Mohamed and Kay for their excellent patient care and attention. I would thoroughly recommend them to you. I mean everything I said. The whole service was superb!“

Mr Mohamed has been most supportive, reassuring, kind and extremely efficient during a very difficult time. He is completely approachable which is not always the case with consultants. I always feel able to talk to him freely he always listens and never rushes you. He set in motion various procedures he felt were necessary so there was little delay and as a result lessened any anxiety. He is definitely a consultant who will take care of you. His secretary Kay has also been extremely supportive and its good to have a direct line of communication.

Said, was fantastic. I really appreciated his bedside manner, technical expertise and general consultative approach. I felt completely at ease and confident throughout the whole experience and that I was in good hands. I would definitely refer him to others (which I am in the process of doing). He came highly recommended to me and exceeded expectations.

Mr Said Mohamed was an excellent surgeon - provided a lot of clear explanation about the procedure and what my options were and helped me make decisions based on that. His care was excellent (as was the care at the hospital itself) - I felt like I was in very safe hands! He followed up thoroughly and made time to see me at short notice when we suspected there may be an issue (there wasn't). He did an excellent job on the procedure and made arrangements for the needed daily after-care to take place at a hospital that suited me. He made the whole experience as smooth as it could be and that was very much appreciated.

Dr Mohamed was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and very able to explain a relatively new medical situation to me in layman’s terms. I felt very comfortable with his explanations and evaluation. He also then took time to call me following my operation, even during the current medical crisis, and discuss my final scans.

I must say I've had the most amazing care under Mr Mohamed. From my very first appointment with him up until my last he has been a breath of fresh air. He has kept me informed, explained the process in detail and shown genuine care about my well being. I've never had surgery before but he really made me feel at ease and I completely felt I was in the safest possible hands. I've been passed over to many doctors & specialists in the past 2 years and to finally meet one that knows and understands what he's talking about has been so refreshing. I cannot thank Mr Mohamed enough.

Incredible thanks to Kay and Mr Mohamed for both your excellent work and consummate professionalism: a simple operation for him, but a life-changing opportunity for myself and my family. My honest and heartfelt thanks to Mr. Mohamed and all the staff at the London Bridge Hospital for their dedication and support during my stay: my recovery is going excellently, with little to no pain and no issues with the surgical wound. All in all, far easier than any of us expected!

Many thanks for your care, reassurance and wise counsel over these past 3 months. I have no doubt that your quick evaluation and actions that first weekend avoided potential calamity (or worse!). Your daily visits always put me at ease. Overall, the quality of your care that I have received at London Bridge Hospital has been exceptional. Many thanks for your exceptional care and support over this difficult period. We couldn't have been in better hands!
