Good to improve patient's health pre op, good to have detailed chat about op beforehand. I therefore went into theatre in a positive state of mind, sure this has helped a speedy recovery. Thank you Mr Aroori and your team for your dedication and work.

Mr Aroori was superb. He helped my frail elderly mother, listening carefully, diagnosing quickly, going above and beyond to complete her treatment ASAP and taking account of her needs and wishes. I would not hesitate to recommend him: he is excellent.
