“I was referred to Dr Yazbek by my existing consultant only to realise that I had previously seen him before a few years ago. The whole process from my initial consultation with Dr Yazbek to my procedure at King Edward VII was stress free and uncomplicated. Dr Yazbek is professional, approachable, compassionate, pragmatic and most importantly there is no such thing as too many questions. All treatment options were communicated to me clearly and concisely. I’ve always felt safe and comfortable around Dr Yazbek and have always left a consultation feeling reassured about any issues or symptoms that I have experienced. I would definitely recommend Dr Yazbek and would not hesitate to see him again whenever required. “

    I was referred to Mr Joseph Yazbek by Mr Angus McIndoe (another excellent Gynecologist) and I'm so pleased I was. I've had ongoing pain and symptoms for the last 12 months and have been for a number of MRI and ultrasound scans to diagnose the cause. Joseph took the time, care and patience to talk me through my transvaginal ultrasound scan as he was performing it - it was amazing, like a biology lesson! It really helped me to understand what was causing my pain and symptoms. Following the scan, he talked me through my treatment options, taking the time to answer all of my questions and concerns. He is an expert in Gynecology but also a kind and helpful man - which is needed when you feel sensitive or worried. I 100% recommend Jospeh Yazbek if you are experiencing any Gynecological issues or concerns.
