    Dr Shidrawi is the kindest, most caring and knowledgable consultant that I have ever seen. I have suffered from so much pain and felt so poorly for over 20 years. I have seen numerous consultants over the years and none of them have relieved my pain and suffering. Within months Dr Shidrawi has investigated, diagnosed and treated my condition. I feel so much better after his intervention and I am extremely grateful to him.

    Exceptional doctor who I cannot recommend enough. I was tired and wore out by the time I saw him after years of going round in circles with symptoms that left other doctors puzzled. I had all but given up hope but encouraged by this doctors enthusiasm and encouragement not to mention determination I saw a glimmer of hope. I will forever be thankful to him that he opened the door for me and I eventually got diagnosed.

    Dr Shidrawi is a fantastic gastro _ consultant. The only Dr who listened to my mum's symptoms and diagnosed her correctly after a telephone consultation. Mum had already been to four gastro consultants who couldn't help mum with her four years of nausea. They offered her no hope for the future and sent her to a psychatrist. Dr Shidrawi diagnosed a blocked bile duct and gastro_ paresis. I first came across Dr Shidrawi when I watched a TV programme about a lady who had suffered nausea for 10 years. "Diagnosis Detectives. " I recommend Dr Shidrawi to anyone who has a mysterious illness and has been left undiagnosed. He is a very kind and caring Dr and listens to his patients. He is a very friendly Dr and reassures you that he will always get to the root of the problem. We need more Drs like Dr Shidrawi in the North of England.
