    Mr Haq diagnosed my illness and ensured that I was treated quickly. He provided information about my illness and treatment in a way that I could understand and answered my questions. During my stay in hospital he visited me daily (including at the weekend), updated me promptly on my results and ensured that I was comfortable. After I left hospital he remained available for questions and made regular appointments to check my progress. There were several times when I consider that he went to extra effort on my behalf. I have absolute confidence that Mr Haq has covered every eventuality concerning my illness and I feel confident about my future health under his supervision. I feel very lucky to have him as my consultant.

    My experience with Mr Haq was absolutely fantastic. I travelled all the way from Cardiff to London to see him and I am so glad that I did. He diagnosed my condition and had me in surgery within hours. He kept me informed throughout and explained everything to me in detail. My recovery has been amazing and Mr Haq’s wonderful secretary Rona is always at the end of an email for anything I need. I highly recommend Mr Haq and the treatment I received from him really was superb, from the minute I walked into the consultation I felt totally at ease and relaxed.

    I was very anxious to get a diagnosis as I was worried / embarrassed about any ‘examination’. Mr Haq made the whole experience so easy and reassuring. My condition and treatment was explained well, treatment was great, Mr Haq was more than happy to talk to me about any concerns I had at any point during / after the treatment. His EA Rona is also incredible and reduces any stress you would have as much as she can! Would highly recommend.

    This was my second surgery performed by Mr Haq. On both occasions (and on all consultations) he has provided very clear information as to the merits and risks of treatment, together with practical advice which took into account my concerns and circumstances. I recommend him extremely highly.
