Felt very well looked after. Mr Agrawal explained the procedure and potential complications in great detail and answered all my questions. I knew what to expect after the procedure and had a good recovery. I am very happy with the outcome and highly recommend Mr Agarwal and his team.

Explanation

After a year of reseraching weight loss surgery, I finally found Mr Agrawal who also happens to operate at a clinic very close to where I live. Mr Agrawal, was very straight forward with me explaining in details everything that concerns the pre-op diet, the operations and after care. He was very honest with possible complications which I appreciated so that I was aware of everything that might happen. I was 120kg pre-op and now, nine months later, I’m down to 77kg and still losing. I feel so much better, have more energy and my knee arthrities does not bother me as much. I enjoy exercising again and my joints don’t ache for days like they used to. Thanks to Mr Agrawal and his wonderful team for giving me a new lease of life. I can now live a better life!

Explanation

I would highly recommend surgery with Mr Agrawal, from start to finish I’ve had a highly professional and honest experience. From my first consultation Mr Agrawal was highly knowledgeable and very honest about all aspects of the surgery - outcomes and risks. I had researched for near on a year reading reviews on different surgeons and looking into their surgical background and patient reviews and can honestly say Me A did not disappoint. My surgery had no complications, very minimal gas pain and a good recovery with a good support network.

Explanation

Fantastic experience with Dr Agrawal. I was sleeved on Sept 16th having been overweight for years and tried every diet and healthy eating fad going. I had excellent advice from Dr Agrawal, he was not pushy at all and very realistic about the pros and cons of the surgery. Throughout the process he has always been very approachable and continues to support me a few months down the line. I couldn't be happier with the results and feel so much healthier and more in control of what I eat.The Spire East London was an excellent hospital in every respect from the comfort of my stay to the very experienced and supportive hospital staff. I did a great deal of research before making this huge decision to be sleeved and I wouldn't have done it with any other surgeon.
