    At our first consultation, Mr Faris was delightful, encouraging and helpful, while being very realistic about the process. By the end of the consultation, we understood things far better than we had during an abortive journey in the NHS where we saw clinical fellows and not consultants. He gave very simple and practical explanations and has been readily available for further advice during the process. This has included text messages and phone calls. Since our initial consultation, our conversations have been more brief and focused, and sometimes more direct than we might have liked. Nonetheless, we have continued to feel fully informed and it's reassuring that he's at the end of a phone.

    Mr Faris was incredibly polite, professional and reassuring. He has a gentle manner that immediately puts you at ease and doesn't feel insincere. He is clearly very knowledgeable but communicates this in a digestible way, and made himself available even at 9pm when we needed it. He never made false promises and was able to give us hope despite the obstacles we faced. We are really grateful for the care we received from Mr Faris, and that we were successful on our first treatment at The Lister, and would thoroughly recommend his services.
