“Dr Rismani is very caring, friendly, great at explaining the processes and what treatment involves. He is very personable (always remembers little personal facts I told him about myself over the years) and I have always felt very well looked after by him, and couldn't recommend him enough. He is also a great haematologist, whose judgement I completely trust and whose approach seems to be led by the latest science and his own experiences as a doctor. I'm very grateful to him. “

    Dr Rismani is brilliant at keeping in touch with patients and replying quickly to questions we might have. His personal charm and unfailing good humour creates trust in him in his patents. I have on occasions turned to him when I have failed to contact other doctors and he is always quick to help out. I can't recommend him highly enough.

    Dr Rismani is a truly exceptional physician. His experience and knowledge is clear and the way he handles me as a patient cannot be faulted. He always emails me as soon as I have my blood test results which is always a relief. Dr Rismani is absolutely excellent and I’m so grateful that he is looking after me.

    SINCE I HAVE BEEN SEEING DR. RISMANI OVER ALL THE YEARS I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SATISFIED WITH THE CARE AND EXPLANATIONS OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TREATMENTS FOR MY PROBLEMS. ALSO VERY SATISFIED THAT WITH EACH VISIT TO THE CLNC,I GET CHECKED OUT AND GET MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED TO MY SATISFACTION. I USUALLY GET MY BLOOD TEST RESULTS BY THE TIME I SEE THE DOCTOR OR GET THEM WITH A TELEPHONE CALL THE LATEST THE NEXT DAY.

    I am a very demanding patient. I like to understand things in details and clearly. Generally I have no trust in traditional western, drug based, medicine. But I found Dr Rismani very patient, very knowledgable and completely dedicated in his work. He explained to me the situation very well and very clearly. He was not judgmental at all or pushy in any direction, he listened accurately and understood perfectly my situation. Then he offered his best advice for me to decide. I would highly recommend Dr Rismani to anyone who wish to see a competent professional in Haematology science.

    Dr Rismani diagnosed me with Lymphoma and was my consultant throughout my treatment. He has excellent bedside manner, dealing with sensitive issues such as diagnosis and prognosis with empathy and the utmost respect for the patient and their family. He is knowledgable and takes time to answer and discuss client questions and concerns; never rushing consultations or trivialising questions. Dr Rismani is also very accessible, replies to any form of communication (email, text or call) promptly. I felt secure in my care and treatment under him.
