    I have seen Dr Hamdulay privately regarding some persistent symptoms. He was very thorough, friendly and listening to everything I had to say without rushing in like other doctors. He diagnosed me with a serious autoimmune disease in one week and if I haven’t gone to see him I would have not known about it until it is too late. I’m very grateful for his understanding and taking my case very seriously. I’m very happy with his professional service and I will be seeing him again for my annual screening. Thank you very much.

    I have recently consulted Dr Hamdulay who diagnosed a serious autoimmune condition I did not know I had. I found him to be thorough and quick in his diagnostic investigation and commencement of treatment. I found him to be very professional, courteous and reassuring, addressing all my concerns and promptly responding to all my questions. Thank you Dr Hamdulay
