“My Nama is a wonderful consultant - immensely knowledgeable and experienced, and always happy to take the time to explain things properly and fully, so you leave feeling informed and empowered in the decisions you are making. But above all, he is tremendously kind and compassionate - which is a far rarer thing, and so important in his field. I recommend him without hesitation.“

    We met Mr Nama to discuss my wifes endometriosis case. Mr Nama patiently went through the case history and once he was satisfied that it wasnt an oncology case, he discussed further options. He went through several possible options for the further treatment and patiently explained the benefits and risks of all before referring us to endometriosis specialist.

    Mr Nama is an excellent gynaecologist; he is knowledgeable, experienced and up to date with all the latest research. He listens to you, answers all your questions and gives you an in depth explanation of what your options are . He is very caring and kind to patients, never rushing you even in a busy clinic . What amazed me was that he answered any emails with my concerns at any time of day or even at the weekend. He is genuinely concerned for your well-being. Several friends have had the same positive experience with Mr Nama. Highly recommend this consultant for any Gynae problems, even peri and post menopausal issues .

    Explanation (5/5)
    I have been under Dr Nama’s care for 3 years now. Being referred to a consultant with the threat of a potential cancer is a difficult time. Dr Nama made sure i understood the diagnosis. He helped answer all my questions and helped allay my fears to help me prepare for the surgery. He had continued his monitoring and i receive the same level of attention to my queries in every visit. I feel that he considers the patient’s interest foremost and only considers the most essential medical steps. He inspired confidence in me about the treatment plan.
