Excellent service provided. Was thorough, empathetic and brisk. I know feel much better and know my problem is getting sorted appropriately.
I had already met a specialist prior to Professor Mughal and was immediately a lot more comfortable and confident with Professor Mughal after our initial consultation. He exudes professionalism and calm. The process from consultation to surgery to follow-up was seamless and clear. His office were equally professional, personable and clear. Though I hope I don’t need another procedure like this at any time, if I did, I would be seeing Prof. Mughal.
