Absolutely outstanding level of care and service. Only slight negative in my case was Mr Awad said he’d contact my partner when I was through the Op and this didn’t happen for whatever reason. She had to call herself to put her mid at rest.

Hello thank you for the feedback. I tried to call your partner on numerous occasions after the op. Unfortunately no answer. Due to data protection reasons I could not leave a voicemail
