    It was lovely to met Professor Sadaf Ghaem-Maghami on the 3rd February 2021 for my Ovarian Cyst problem. Professor Sadaf Ghaem-Maghami was a very nice and friendly doctor. I was impressed with her professional and deeply felt that she's a very caring person and very experienced. She listened to me very patiently and answered my questions in very detailed. For the words/things I don't understand she explained and made it easy to understand. I had a great experience with her. During the consultation, I felt that I'm in a safe hand. I would recommend Professor Sadaf Ghaem-Maghami to a friend in future. And if I have any gynaecology problem again in future I will still go to see her. Also, Professor Sadaf Ghaem-Maghami has the most professional and efficient admin team as well. I got replied very fast once sent my email. They arranged a date for me for consultation very quick and attached a document with very clear instruction and procedure of the appointment and everything I need to know. My experience with Professor Sadaf Ghaem-Maghami was: professional, caring, efficient, and I felt I was well looked after.

    The way in which Professor Ghaem-Maghami was able to articulate in plain English her prognosis and suggested way forward has been the clearest explanation that I have had in the three years of seeing various consultants about my health. Very clear, consise and also personal (recognising emotion and feeling). Highly recommended!
