    I can't recommend Dr Bano enough, she was caring,attentive and carried out an intervention with smoothness and success first time,she was so gentle,no local anaesthetics was needed,I saw a doctor before her and it was a horrible experience,so much so,I asked him not to organise another visit as the first attempt was unsuccessful. Thank you so much Doctor! :)

    Unlike most doctors nowadays, Dr F Bano actually takes the time to listen to patients and explain any complicated medical terms/concepts. She’s happy to answer any questions and makes sure she explains everything as simply as possible. After over 2 years of going to different doctors regarding the same health issue, Dr F Bano was the first one to listen to my concerns and actually took the time to look into it and conduct tests/examinations. I have finally found the reason for my symptoms and can now work on the best treatment. Thank you for all your help Dr!
