“I booked an appointment after trying to convince my GPI s for four years that I was experiencing menopausal symptoms. They dismissed me as being too young, despite an early menopause family history, and offered me painkillers instead. At 44 1 felt like an old frump. Thank goodness friend gave me Sarah Hussein's telephone number. After only a few days wait I saw Miss Hussein, and within minutes of taking my history and listingto my symptoms Sarah assured me that I was right all along! The options open to me were explained in a friendly and informative way, and after an examination, and blood pressure check I decided to try HRT patches. Four months later I can report my life has totally changed, the bloating, hot flushes, night sweats, irritability, diarrhoea, migraines, sickness, tiredness and memory loss have gone. And I felt like myself again. Ladies listen to your own body, and see a recommended specialist. “

I very much appreciated your perseverance in examining me, and carrying out the cervical smear and HPV test during my first visit to see you at The London Clinic on 20 March, and it was a relief to know that the results of these tests were negative. Thank you also very much for your understanding and clear advice regarding my condition, which was most helpful to me.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Sarah Hussain who performed my hysterectomy with so much professionalism and precision, making Inc fccl comfortable and at ease the very first time I met her. She was extremely professional, patient, an excellent listener and very caring. She explained the procedure with complete honesty detailing the pros and cons which is so important to a patient to know prior to making a decision as big as this. She made me reel at ease and at onee I trusted her and was reassured that I am in very good hands. Her knowledge and experience is commendable. One of the best OB-GYN I have ever desired and which anyone will desire to have. She has an excellent sense of humor, extremely coutteous, friendly and a sense of huge responsibility to let me anxious family know that all went well after the surgety. She works extremely hard and long hours but has always such a pleasant personality. I do hope we have many more doctors like Dr. Sarah Ilussain who makes the world a better place and the experience of being in hospital such a pleasure. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and does things in the best interest of her patients.

I am writing to let you know that I was very impressed by the level of care and clinical expertise shown to me by both Mrs Hussain during my recent surgical procedure. It is not always easy to treat a doctor as a patient but both were very good at both putting me at my ease and adapting their consultation styles to allow for my non-specialist level of medical knowledge. Thankfully all is now well so I am no longer in need of their expertise but I will certainly recommend them both to friends and colleagues. I imagine that you generally receive complaints, people are busy and tend to write mostly when something goes wrong so I thought that it would be nice for you to receive some positive feedback for a change!

After a difficult period with my GP who was somewhat unsympathetic and unhelpful with regard to my problems, I was referred to Dr Hussein. Immediately she put me at ease and her professionalism, understanding and treatment was exemplary and a huge credit to both herself and the Hospital. From my initial consultation and through my follow up visit, Dr Hussain has been very clear in her advice and explanations, knowledgable of the issues and has devised a clear treatment plan which I am delighted to say has left me feeling better than I have for a very long time. I just wanted you to know that I am a very satisfied patient and whilst it is of course never pleasurable dealing with doctors and hospitals, Dr Hussain's attitude and her manner significantly eliminated any anxieties I had and I am pleased to be able to recommend her to any other prospective patient.

I have been a patient who had a fibroid surgery. The surgery was successfully done by Mrs. Sarah Hussain and her kind, and efficient team. This is to show my heartiest gratitude towards the entire hospital who looked after me until the end. I would like to mention all the staff specially Mrs. Sarah Hussain who kindly guided me to gain speedy recovery from that major operation.

I had a laparoscopic myomectomy done by Mrs Hussain in March to remove a fibroid. Before this I had had years of pain and debilitating symptoms as well as two unsuccessful operations with different surgeons. First of all, I wanted to let Mrs Hussain know that that operation has completely changed my life. From the very first month after the operation my symptoms disappeared. My periods are now very light and I have gone from having 10-15 day-long periods where I was in so much pain I couldn't get out of bed to having 4 day periods with no need to even take a paracetamol, which is right back to how I used to be 10 years ago. In addition, 4 months after the operation, my scars have healed remarkably well and are starting to fade. I am so grateful for the excellent care and for the procedure, I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome.

I had total Hysterectomy 2 mths ago and I will definitely recommend Mrs Sarah Hussain as she has been very efficient and excellent from the 1st moment I met her just over two and half months ago. I was extremely worried about the procedure but she put me at ease and I recovered from the operation very quickly. I should not have worried she is totally caring and very kind. Although my op was complicated I did not experience much pain which meant I could get back to myself and recovered quickly and was back to work within 6 wks. Mrs Hussain is the best and I totally recommend her, the best decision I took to appoint her as my consultant. A big Thank you.

Mrs Hussain was lovely from the very first appointment and has been fantastic all the way through my procedure, which was three-fold. She immediately made me feel calm and explained things fully at all times. My operation was a total success -- I was in hardly any pain post-op and actually wondered if the procedure had been performed at all! Mrs Hussain was amazing and I would have no hesitation in recommending her for any procedure.

Thank you so very much for looking after me. Having expected to be extremely uncomfortable I was very nervous. You made me feel special and the procedure you performed was done so carefully, I was not in pain at all. I guess anyone that needs help of your realm of expertise, is very fortunate to have you dealing with their problem. Would you please be good enough to let the two nurses that assist you, know that I appreciated their sympathy and kindness. Thank you once again!

I just wanted to let you know that you have indeed changed my life! I cannot thank you enough for your time and medical attention, given to me when I attended your Clinic at Holly House. I am doing extremely well on my new patches so much so that I am reluctant to even remove the old before replacing it with the new! I have again enjoyed so many things I enjoyed doing a few years back, which I put to one side simply because of the menopause symptoms I was suffering, such as the odd massage, and a holiday in the sun both I couldn't consider with the hot flushes and sweats it was so nice to start to enjoy those times again. Not to mention my focus at home and at work, I have truly felt re-energised. It's been incredible. My quality of life has improved considerably not just for me but for those close to me too both at home and at work so I thank you for this. Again thank you!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to provide you with some feedback about Mrs Hussain. I recently had a total abdominal hysterectomy for fibrosis performed by Mrs Hussain and I am recovering very well thanks to her excellent expertise and care. Right from the first consultation 4 months ago I was provided with professional and open advice about my options and I am so glad that I chose Mrs Hussain as my consultant. No question was too much and for that I am very grateful and it went a long way towards making me feel reassured and mentally prepared for the operation. I was quite apprehensive about having such a major operation but Mrs Hussain was so supportive and allayed both my family’s and my fear. She even drew me diagrams to help me understand my case better which I truly appreciated. The operation itself turned out to be more complicated than expected and it’s a testament to Mrs Hussain’s skills as a surgeon that it all went so smoothly. I have recovered remarkably well without any problems at all. Both the care that I received from Mrs Hussain and the staff at Holly House Hospital was exceptional. I would happily recommend her and the hospital to other patients.

I have just finished treatment with Mrs Hussain and from the outset she proved to be very forthright and efficient in her consultation process. I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts and as it was not known whether the cysts were cancerous the whole procedure was handled with speed and thoughtfulness. Luckily for me the cysts were benign and the surgery was quite painless and I was looked after exceedingly well. All in all it was an easier experience than I had previously imagined under Mrs Hussain's care. Susan Marchant

I have been a patient of Mrs Sarah Hussain for the past 7 months. During this time she has undertaken surgical procedures and I have met her several times for consultations. I have been extremely happy with the level of care and expertise provided. I particularly appreciate her bedside manner; compassionate, kind and caring. My appointments are never rushed and care is taken to ensure I fully understand my situation and options. From an administration point of view, follow up letters and any referrals required are received promptly and often delivered in the post just 2 days after my appointment. She has my complete trust and I can confidently recommend her.

From initial consultation to tests and open hysterectomy operation i have been really pleased with Miss Hussain's treatment of me. She has been able to reassure me and elevate my worries in order for me to agree to and go ahead with the operation. My operation initially was meant to be a key hole however due to complications Miss Hussain had to do an open hysterectomy which we had discussed as a possibility. I am really happy with the operation and how I have recovered. She is an excellent consultant and I would highly recommend her.

Mrs hussain, is a very warm and caring consultant. She makes patients feel at ease and discusses matters thoroughly. I recently had to undergo a Biopsy & hysteroscopy as an in-patient at Holly House Hopsital. The care I received from Mrs hussain, the anesthetist, and all the nursing staff was exceptional.
