    I have been suffering from a painful complaint for over 16 years and seen several gynaecologists, who prescribed various treatments which proved unsuccessful in managing my symptoms. No further advice was forthcoming from the specialists and before I met Mr. Nama I had come to accept that there was nothing else to be done. Mr. Nama was not prepared, however, to give up trying and as a result he has facilitated my undertaking further experimental treatment. I cannot fault Mr.Nama for his kind empathetic approach to my medical problems and for 'going the extra mile' when others had given up. Regardless of the outcome of this latest treatment, I am very grateful to Mr. Nama for his exemplary care.

As soon we seat and start to go through the symptoms I've got he told me that it might be endometriosis but need to do a laparoscopy for diagnose. He was very understanding and he listen everything I had to say. He is the first Dr that actually listen and understand what I am going through. Then he explain how the endometriosis works and what we can do. Also he give me a combined pill that helps me with my pain. Thank you very much Dr Vivek. Very grateful.
