    Mr Farook is the consummate professional. From my first interaction he was professional, knowledgeable, cared about things I didnt even realise were important to me, spoke to me in plain English and most importantly cared. During the surgery he was informative, clearly explained what would happen to reassure me and focussed on after care so I knew what to expect. After surgery and whist I was still under, he spoke to my family and updated on progress and then he was available to me after to ensure I was ok. His after care was also excellent offering me access to him when needed. I couldnt have asked to be in better hands and wholly recommended him I almost forget the quality of his work -absolutely outstanding. Thank you Mr Farook.

    Parotidectomy Surgery Mr Farook was excellent in every respect. From meeting Mr Farook and his team to surgery everything was moved along quickly with the various tests I had to have and advice and guidance explained to me about the operation I was to have. Despite COVID Mr Farook went the extra mile to ensure the surgery took place as quickly as possible and had to liaise with my heart consultant at the last minute for information and ensured there was no delay to surgery that was planned.

    Mr Farook’s commitment to, and care of, me ranks as joint best, with one other, of all other consultants I have seen over the years in my “busy” health management. He consistently went “the extra mile” in every respect. Everything was explained extremely well and not once did I ever feel rushed. Some health news was not so good but this was “cushioned” in knowing that I could not be in better hands. His specialist knowledge encompassed all the most recent developments. His approachability was really second to none - and it was genuine, and experienced by me on so many occasions. I could not have asked for more and feel so thankful that I chose the right person for my health recovery and monitoring. He showed me true dedication to patient care in all its forms.

    My mum was diagnosed with advanced stage of cancer. she had extensive successful surgery & admitted in hospital for 22 days. we didn't met mum in that time period because of covid. But mum told us Doctor farook look after her very well and visited her on weekends also. He kept me updated & explained every thing. After surgery doctor encouraged us for hard radiotherapy & now we having very good results of it. Besides of professionalism he is a good human also. Evey time we found him very helpful. Its now 10 months since mum is under care of him i can say his every decision was fully correct.

    Dr Farook is one of the finest geniuses I can vouch for any complex surgical procedure. I had my second surgery done by him, the first one I got done in India. I was sceptic due to past bad experiences with NHS but thank God I trusted Dr Farook, I have got the best procedure done I can hardly see any scar on my chin and lips. I always thank and pray for the entire team of Dr Farook. Rest assured you are in safe hand and you’ll get the best. May Allah reward you for the amazing work you do Dr Farook.. Thanks
