I am absolutely delighted with the way Mr Nima Abbassi-Ghadi conducted himself through out the brief time l have known him, from the very first consultation through the various options and also with his efforts to achieve the best resolution to my medical condition, going the extra mile to explain to my medical insurers, the reasons why he was recommending certain procedures, plus his clarity of explanation, prior to the operation and post operation follow up consultation. I would highly recommend him to others!

This consultant is the sort of person who seeks to identify and solve medical problems. It makes you feel there is someone on your side seeking to get to the bottom of the issue.
Mr Abassi-Ghadi is a consummate professional in his field of expertise. A wonderful listener who ultimately made sense of my rather garbled list of symptoms following a logical list of tests/scans etc that led to me having huge confidence in proceeding with robotic surgery for a fundoplication revision previously performed by another surgeon laparoscopically. Kind and caring, he has telephoned me at home to enquire after my progress and prior to the follow up appointment. I cannot speak highly enough of him.
Nima is great! Kind, clever and credible. I felt well looked after and totally confident after I’d met him.
