    Explanation (5/5)
    I could not be happier with the care I received from Mr Alibhai - I found him to be professional, warm, kind, and easy to understand. He made me feel at ease and kept me informed throughout, and this ensured I was able to make informed decisions about my care. If I were to ever need a maxillofacial doctor again I would not want to see any other doctor. And I would recommend him highly.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    I booked an appointment with Mr Mustansir Alibhai because of a perforated sinus caused by a tooth extraction by a local dental surgery. It had caused me stress as I was finding it difficult to get any help or advice from the NHS. I felt an immense sense of relief after I had after my consultation with him. He explained what had happened in detail, explained the anatomy that was impacted, and the solution. He is emotionally intelligent, compassionate, kind and full of integrity. He went above and beyond to find treatment pathway that will work for me. I can't thank him enough for the peace of mind he provided. I wouldn't hesitate to book again with him privately if needed.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I saw Mr Alibhai to have an impacted wisdom tooth removed. He was very professional and clearly explained the procedure to me. The tooth extraction went smoothly and, to my surprise, I experienced almost no discomfort or swelling over the following days. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mr Alibhai.
