Dr Vivek he is amazing I couldn't be more happier that I went to see him. After seeing 2 consultants in Epsom Hospital without any success or understanding from their side I decide to go private at Shirley Oaks Hospital in Croydon . My husband google and he found Dr Vivek. 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. He works for NHS at Croydon University Hospital in Croydon.

I was referred to Mr Nama for further investigation following an abnormal smear. He took care to explain the smear test and what my result might mean, and described the procedure (colposcopy) that he would carry out to investigate further. I found his explanation very helpful and reassuring. He was also very sympathetic when carrying out the procedure, which was a bit uncomfortable.

Following various investigatory procedures my original consultant referred me to Mr Nama for clarification of the outcomes of the most recent tests and for an explanation of future treatment options. Mr Nama's explanation of results of the tests was extremely lucid and detailed. His manner was both highly professional, courteous and reassuring and he gave a full account of the optimum way to proceed with my treatment in the future which very much put my mind at rest as he did not think it necessary for me to undergo major surgery at this stage. I was very impressed by Mr Nama.
