    I will be forever thankful to Dr Haq. He needed to be 100% sure there was nothing wrong with me, MRI showed nothing, he suggested a Colonoscopy. You don’t wake up in the morning and want to have one of those done, but at the same time this is how he found a polyp that was going to be bad news did he not remove it there and then. Dr Haq makes you feel looked after, he explains everything clearly, before and after procedure. Can’t thank him and recommend him enough. Rona, Dr Haq PA, is absolutely amazing, always on point, she replies before you even ask, best customer service ever, thank you!!

He alway ensured his PA constantly check up on me and he is ever ready to speak to me at anytime. I don't expect to fall sick again, but if I do I will choose to go back to him.

    Mr Asif has an excellent bedside manor. He was extremely thorough and, faced with a possible scary diagnosis, he reassured me and took all possible measures to carry out the diagnostics as quickly as possible. You can tell that Mr Asif cares about his patients and gave me the reassurances, I needed, as soon as was physically possible. I knew I was in good hands. I could not fault the service and advice I received.
