    I consider myself fortunate to have been placed under the care of Mr Hussain Alnajjar. As well as being very highly qualified professionally, he is a most kind and considerate person. After explaining clearly my condition, he was very reassuring and, taking into account my thoughts and wishes, soon proposed a positive way forward. Mr Alnajjar personally carried out my operation, and was calm and encouraging throughout the process. As noted above, Mr Alnajjar is individually highly accomplished, and it is also pleasing that he is very much committed to teamwork and to collaborating closely with other experts, colleagues and support staff. This approach is, I am sure, greatly to the benefit of fellow practitioners and patients alike.

    Quite simply an amazing Urologist. I was referred to Dr Hussain via my medical insurance and I selected him as my urologist based on all his positive reviews. My initial consultation with Dr Hussain was simply amazing, all questions were answered and the process to my surgery/procedure was explained in a calm and informative manner. The procedure itself went flawlessly, Dr Hussain and the rest of the team did an amazing job. My follow-up consultation as expected went just as good, I was reassessed and was reassured that the surgery had been successful and once again all questions were answered. Overall, a thoroughly excellent urologist, couldn't ask for anyone better.

    Mr Hussain Alnajjar has been a pleasure to deal with. I went to see him for sexual dysfunction issues and during examination he spotted a different condition (urethral meatal stenosis), a condition which could lead to bladder and kidney complications. He was swift in arranging surgery and functionally the results were tremendously successful. Mr Alnajjar employed the Malone technique and aesthetically the results are also fantastic (as you would want in such body area!), with no evidence of surgery whatsoever! MR Alnajjar called me directly to follow up on the surgery during my recovery and also earlier on when some of my blood test showed some concerning numbers. For the sexual dysfunction issues, after extensive testing (bloods and doppler ultrasound) he concluded I would benefit from seeing a sexual therapist. He works with Remziye Kunelaki, with whom I had an initial consultation and she appears to be highly qualified in such matters, with a particular interest in working with gay man (my case). I look forward to working with her. I thank Mr Alnajjar for his professionalism, friendliness and care. I would highly recommend Mr Alnajjar.

    I had the pleasure of working with Hussain when he was a senior Urology trainee at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Since then he has completed a Fellowship in Andrology at University College London Hospital, where he now works as a consultant urologist. He is a great communicator and a gifted surgeon. He is also hardworking, kind, compassionate and constantly strives to deliver the best quality care to his patients. I would have no hesitation in referring family or friends to him.
