    I really cannot fault any aspect of the care given by Mr Kasem, his compassion and skill was exceptional throughout . Mr kasem went above expectation to ensure that a post operative complication was resolved. A great doctor who has a genuine passion and interest in getting things right for his patients. There is no doubt that I’d opt for care under Mr kasem if ever required.

    Mr Kasem was and is an incredible surgeon. His attention to detail, information, time, reassurance and calm yet witty mannerisms are just what you need in a time you feel nervous, and very unknown. Mr Kasem informed me constantly on procedure, healing time, stages of the operation and aftercare. He was overall excellent in every which way. I had a stitch which didn’t dissolve and Mr Kasem called me on a Sunday, bank holiday weekend and was taking notes on my exact issues, he made appointments for me to come to the hospital within the hour and have everything I needed to addressed fast and effectively, with 5-6 follow up appointments after this stitch removal and constant checking up over the phone also. I will forever be grateful to Mr Kasem for what he did for me.

    My experience with Mr Kasem has been very positive from the outset. I was referred due to sudden nipple discharge with no other symptoms. He was very thorough in his investigation and even when a probable diagnosis was made he wanted to ensure there was 100% certainty of his assessment. He explained the process at every stage, giving complete reassurance throughout and always asking if I had any questions. I had complete trust in his recommendation for surgery and had no concerns either before or after the surgery was carried out. The aftercare following surgery was also very reassuring to ensure complete healing.
