    I was very anxious when I visited Mr Kasey but he and the rest of the team made me feel well looked after and cared for. A very smooth service which put my mind at rest. I was there for 1 1/2 hr and had both consultation, mammogram and ultrasound done. Superb service.

    Finding a lump around your breast can be a very daunting experience. Mr Abdul Kasem had a very calming and reassuring bed-side manner providing expertise and guidance along the way. I was fortunate that the outcome was a ganglion cyst which was removed effectively and efficiently with minimal scarring. Highly recommend him as a consultant

    I felt so confident having breast augmentation with Mr Kasem, despite having it during a pandemic, I knew I was safe with him and his team. At every appointment before and after I knew I was being listened to and I was receiving the best advice and care. I cannot recommend Mr Kasem enough. I am so pleased with my results and that's completely down to his expertise but also his pride in his work. Mr Kasem and his nurses are really friendly and put me at ease instantly. Thank you so much, you've made me happy to look in the mirror!

    Mr Kasem was brilliant from the beginning to the end. After having a lumpectomy, my breasts did not look the same. I saw Mr Kasem who was very informative and the nurses were brilliant too. He took time with me and did not pressurise me into anything. I was not sure on the details of the procedure and needed more time. He took the time to explain everything again and even called me multiple times when needed to help me decide. I am so pleased with my new breasts now and he has looked after me throughout the whole process. He has also assured me that i will be looked after in the aftercare also. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs breast reconstruction as he does an amazing job.

    Brilliant doctor, he put my mind at ease the minute I walked in the door. This is my second visit and although it is never one you want to have to make, I would always go back to Dr Kasem. Extremely thorough and professional and just a really nice man.
