    Very professional and sincere approach with prompt action taken to undertake follow-on scans and checks. Greatly appreciated this responsive approach and even though it turned out to be nothing serious in my case, the response time means so much in addressing others ailments early on. A job very well done.

    Mr. Sahai was outstanding in all interactions with me , throughout the consultation, pre-surgery and post-surgery phases. He explained my situation carefully and fully and gave me clear advice and cannot be faulted! He is caring, explaining everything in a professional manner. He did a terrific job and I am extremely grateful for his care and professional expertise, as a result following the treatment and operation it allowed me to have chemotherapy for an unrelated cancer condition.
