Mr El-Husseiny is very professional and caring consultant, who values his patients and takes time out to reassure and make comfortable. He explain the procedure with great passion and care. A true gentleman, consultant and health care professional.
He was very pleasant and good communicator. He put my mind at rest regarding the procedure.
I was so impressed by Dr. Tamer El-Husseiny that I have decided to fly to the United Kingdom, from Canada, to have the surgery I require. This stent surgery is not offered anywhere in Canada or even the United States. I will be his first Canadian patient to have this procedure done. He explained everything that I needed to be aware of in full detail. He left me with a big decision to consider. Even so, I decided to put all my faith and trust in his experience as a fine doctor.
Mr Tamer El-Husseiny explained my PCNL procedure thoroughly and clearly firstly with a telephone consultation and again just before my procedure. I attended the hospital on my own and after meeting him there, for the first time, I felt reassured that I would be well looked after. I would certainly recommend Mr Tamer El-Husseiny for the removal of a large staghorn.
DR Tamer El-Husseinly was extremely helpful, and made me feel at ease. He was very through and I cannot fault the service I received. Many thanks
From starting treatment to end of care this consultant treated the patient and my family with upmost respect and care. High quality service with prompt and accessible information. I would strongly recommend all patients to visit as you will be in very safe hands.
I could not fault my consultation with Mr. El-Husseiny. He was most engaging and thoroughly professional. The reason for my consultation was to obtain a second opinion on my medical condition and I came away from the consultation feeling thoroughly reassured that he was the right person to be treating me. He explained everything in the greatest detail which was easy to understand.
Professional and detailed assessment and feedback, well delivered.
It was really great meeting Mr Tamer . He took his time with me and explained my case clearly after reviewing my test results .
Very professional, and helpful.

Mr El-Husseiny is, and always has been, a highly skilled surgeon. He is motivated by ensuring the optimum outcome for his patients. Having published widely in his area of expertise from an early stage in his career, he also has a proven track record in not only training junior surgeons to operate, but also further their research portfolios. I would highly recommend him, not only as a colleague, but also clinician.
