I recently had a thyroid cancer surgery with Mr Tarek Abdel-Aziz and I won’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone suffering with this condition. He was very kind, caring, informative pre and post surgery making me comfortable about asking any questions about the condition, the surgery as well as the aftercare. He took time in explaining everything to me and my family clearly therefore I was very relaxed and felt safe in going to the surgery which helped me recover quickly. He provided a very high quality treatment and aftercare. Me and family are very thankful and grateful for his care throughout

I recently underwent surgery at UCLH under the care of Mr. Tarek Abdul-Aziz. I would like to express my gratitude for the exceptional level of care and attention that both Mr. Abdul-Aziz and his team provided. He took the time to explain the procedure thoroughly, and I felt comfortable asking any questions that I had. Additionally, I was pleased to see that my condition, which includes Auditory Processing disorder and inattentive ADHD, was acknowledged and accommodated. One aspect that stood out to me during my experience at UCLH, particularly with Mr. Abdul-Aziz and his team, was their remarkable kindness and compassion.
