Very professional, helpful and very good in listening to the patient’s concerns as well as explaining the case.
Mr El-Husseiny was excellent right the way through my treatment - always very calm, assuring, detailed and clear. I could not recommend him more highly.
I was recently treated for a kidney stone by Dr. El-Husseiny. He performed a percutaneous nephrolithotomy and I’m very pleased with the whole process and particularly with the final outcome. Dr El-Husseiny is an extremely kind and pleasant person, always very keen at explaining all the stages of the procedure with great professionalism.
Very professional,quick and friendly.
Had a consultation with Mr. El-Husseiny, and found him to be very professional and well-spoken. He explained everything clearly and discussed my options with me. I will definitely continue with his expertise. Strongly recommended.
I just wanted to thank you very much for the Rezum operation you performed on me in December. All has gone very well since it's good to get regular good nights sleep again. Thank you also for taking the time to speak to me after the operation. My experiences with the nurses during the aftercare and removal of the catheter were very pleasant and much appreciated.
Mr El-Husseiny explained everything very clearly He also came to see me before & after the procedure which was reassuring I found him very pleasant to deal with

I had been in considerable pain and discomfort and was diagnosed with a kidney stone. I am in my late 70's and was very nervous of any surgery. However the stone would not budge and I was advised it needed to be removed. I had an appointment with Mr El Husseiny and he immediately made me feel at ease and explained the whole procedure to myself and my husband. On the day of the surgery, once again Mr El Husseiny explained everything to me and I was very confident all would go well. After the operation, he came to see me and all was well and I was allowed home later the same day. At all times, Mr El Husseiny acted in a very professional manner, but was also very reassuring and treated me with care and concern. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone who needs his medical expertise.
Mr El-Husseiny, is a kind, understandable, caring surgeon who handles consultation and the complete urological procedure with delicacy and tact, ( in what is an embarassing subject), with sublime grace. All went well and sadly, I do not expect to meet him again but have recommended his expertise to a friend.
I was very happy and satisfied with my tratment. Mr El Husseiny is an excellent and very kind Dr. I was very lucky to be treated by someone who has a big heart and professional.
He was polite and professional at all times, keeping me relaxed and confident that he would perform a 1st class procedure on me, which he did. I just wish other consultants would follow his example.
Mr. Husseiny was brilliant and responded quickly. Compassionate, empathetic and knowledgeable.
Mr El-Husseiny fully explained the prostate procedure. Unfortunately the Rezum treatment did not work for me, but this is not the fault of the surgeon. Mr El-Husseiny did say that the way forward is HoLEP. I have nothing but praise for this surgeon.
Doc Tamer was very kind and helpful. He made me take few test and quickly sort my problem
Kind and considerate. Listened to my concerns and addressed them completely.
Wish all consutants could be like Mr El-Husseiny, he is the best.
Polite. Comprehensive in his explanation
Dr El-Husseiny was very welcoming & explained everything in great detail. He had a lot of knowledge about my situation.
Dr El-Husseiny was very welcoming & explained everything in great detail. He had a lot of knowledge regarding my experiences.
Very professional and efficient
It was a lovely experience, fast and super easy. He also knows a lot about the matter and give you all the options.
I have been treated in France and in Belgium for several years and have never found a urologist as good as Mr El-Husseiny. He is kind and helpful and I have complete confidence in his expertise.
Me El Hussein’s was attentive and offered expert treatment. Highly recommend for kidney stone operation removal. Thank you
My procedure went well and I was very happy with the treatment. I was kept well informed and everything went to plan.
Mr. Tamer El-Husseiny saw me promptly and together with his PA Rosie, made every accommodation to be seen at a location suitable to me.Mr. Tamer El-Husseiny was punctual and explained the whole procedure in great detail,I never felt rushed and he made me feel that everything was under control.On the day of the procedure, we spent time discussing it and when it was over he was there to reassure me.I'm very satisfied with the care I received and would highly recommend him.
Great surgeon and very good after-care. Contacted me over the weekend at home to change my pain medication so I do not suffer. Priceless.
Deciding on the right treatment can be very difficult when you have several options with potentially differing risks and long term outcomes, this was the case for me on choosing the best option for BHP of my prostate. However, following my meeting with Mr El-Husseiny I was left feeling very confident that my decision to opt for HoLEP with him was the right one. Mr El-Husseiny has the breadth of knowledge and experience across all these procedures to personally advise on the most appropriate route to take. Equally importantly is that fact he is very easy to talk to and takes the time to answer all your questions in a relaxed and friendly manner. My operation went very well and I am indebted to Mr El-Husseiny and his team who provided support before, during and after my operation. I also have to specifically mention Rosie Ansah who is PA to Mr El-Husseiny, Rosie coordinated everything extremely efficiently ensuring I had all the relevant information and any queries I had were answered very quickly. Professional, courteous and caring - thank you all!
I have always found Mr El-Husseiny to be courteous & extremely professional. He has great attention to detail, puts you at ease, is a good listener & inspires immense confidence. He also has a very efficient, pleasant & understanding PA who completes an excellent overall experience. Anyone requiring the services of a skilled urologist need look no further.
Excellent initial consultation followed by exemplary treatment by the whole team. I was continuously monitored and checked by staff who could not have been more caring. The procedure and likely subsequent post operative side effects were fully explained in advance, and proved to be totally accurate. I would not hesitate to trust my care to Mr. El-Hussainy and his team again in the future, and thoroughly recommend him to anyone reading this review.
Mr El-Husseiny is a fantastic doctor and surgeon, and I had an excellent experience with him. He was extremely kind and considerate, very reassuring and always took the time to explain things clearly and thoroughly. I felt very relaxed going into my surgery knowing that I was in exceptionally good hands. His PA, Rosie, is brilliant - she went above and beyond to help me with anything I needed, was super organised and speedy in arranging everything and has a wonderful manner. I'm very grateful to both.
Excellent consultant ! I am very happy with the outcome . I highly recommend Dr Tamer El-Husseiny !
Good care, attentive, informative and very pleasant to deal with. Both Mr El-Husseiny and his secretary Rosie.
Mr Tamer El-Husseiny is a fantastic doctor who was more then happy to take the time to discuss and share his knowledge of an on going problem that I am hoping to get cured. He made me feel very comfortable and confident on what he referred and recommended for my next steps to recovery. Thank you! Thank you!
Excellent service. Very kind and considerate. Prompt service. Excellent surgeon. Would highly recommend to anyone
My son (16) saw Mr El-Husseiny on a number of occasions over the summer in connection with a hydrocele. Mr El-Husseiny was able to operate on the hydrocele and my son is very happy with the results. I would highly recommend Mr El-Husseiny. He was very reassuring towards my son and I whenever we met him - he took the time to carefully explain the surgery and answered any queries. He was very professional in his manner and was able to quickly resolve this issue for my son.
Mr El-Husseiny saw me at short notice, was incredibly competent and professional. I felt like I was in great hands every step of the way. Rosie (his assistant) was also fantastic at coordinating appointments and ensuring he had my test results when he needed them.
Mr El-Husseiny recently treated my Mum when she had a stone obstructing her ureter causing hydronephrosis. He explained everything to her and performed a ureteroscopy, removal of stone, ureteric stent insertion and subsequently its removal. He kept us updated throughout is truly an excellent surgeon. I work in the medical profession and I would highly recommend Mr El-Husseiny. Rosie his PA is fantastic, knowledgeable and very efficient. Thank you to both of them for their excellent care.
Very happy with service. Efficient, courteous, skilled.
I made an appointment on very short notice to see Dr El-Husseiny. I attended the appointment and was very happy with the care I received. The doctor was thorough and also attentive to all my concerns. His assistant is top notch and responds quickly to emails, which I appreciate. I would recommend him without hesitation.
I am so pleased that I was referred to Mr El-Husseiny as he is extremely easy to talk to & very reassuring. I always leave a consultation encouraged & with a renewed confidence. He has great attention to detail & is thorough in all he does, so I know I am in safe hands. Everything about my experience has been handled very efficiently & professionally & I have no hesitation in recommending anyone requiring the services of a top Urologist choose Mr El-Husseiny.
I feel fortunate to have come under the care of Mr El-Husseiny and his wonderful PA Rosie whilst suffering from a troublesome kidney stone. At each stage everything has been done with the utmost care and attention but also with a real sense of urgency and concern. I would recommend Mr El-Husseiny unconditionally and without hesitation.
I received a thorough and most informative initial consultation and examination, with clear, reasoned advice on my condition and the options for the future. I chose the HoLEP procedure, which was carried out the following week and involved a two-night hospital stay. The procedure went very smoothly and, in my case, has been completely without post-operative pain. I have since seen Mr El-Husseiny for a follow-up consultation and flow and voiding tests and have now been discharged. I would recommend Mr El-Hosseiny without reservation. We immediately established an excellent rapport and communications, via his outstanding PA, were always timely and comprehensive. Most importantly, Mr El-Hosseiny's skill and care have completely resolved the issue which brought us into contact and I am happy to say that my feeling of well-being is increasing daily!
Mr. El Husseiny deserves many more stars than five. My surgical procedure went very smoothly and there were no complications. During my treatment Mr Husseiny was very kind and compassionate.
Any excellent Consultant. I would recommend him to anyone. Very professional, great manner and most importantly knows his field inside and out
I went to see Mr. El-Husseiny because I was seeing blood in my urine. Mr. El-Husseiny was very professional and he quickly diagnosed the reason for my symptoms. Throughout the kidney stone treatment he was very kind and careful and made sure that we have acted in due time and didn't delay before it was late. All in all I couldn't recommend more Mr. El-Husseiny.
Very kind, took the time to thoroughly explain situation.
I found Mr El-Husseiny to be very professional yet showed compassion and diagnosed my condition which had t been detected by any doctor over the previous 5 years.He has changed my life as he has enabled me to have a normal life again.
Mr. Husseiny is one of the best consultants that I have ever met. He is so nice and such an expert in his field that can't be explained in words. We visited him for my wife's kidney treatment, initially, we thought it was a simple procedure but turned out to be a complex one. Many many thanks to Mr Husseiny who handled everything in such an exceptional way that everything ended very well and exactly as expected. My wife is doing perfectly fine now and I would like to highlight one special thing about Mr Husseiny that whenever you meet him he will give you a sense of calmness, will explain you everything in detail as much as by drawing things on paper, showing scans etc. which make a huge difference. We shall always be thankful to him for all the treatments and care for my wife. If ever anyone needs to see a urologist in London, he is your man.
Great doctor very knowledgeable and provides a comprehensive consultation and follow up.
Tamer is very experienced urologist and extremely skilled surgeon. He is highly regarded by both his patients and colleagues.
