“I went to see Mr Yazbek with uterine fibroids based on the excellent reviews he had, including those of bedside manner, as I was looking for someone to listen, explain and give options. I made the right choice. During consultation, Mr Yazbek showed me on the screen what he was looking at and explained everything clearly. He gave me options to think about and was very reassuring. I chose, under his care, to have an open myomectomy at the KEVII. Mr Yazbek was so kind, calling my mum after surgery to let her know it had gone well. He called me the next morning and then visited, with full explanation of how the surgery had gone. Mr Yazbek has welcomed and promptly responded to any questions I have sent to him during this time which is another sign of an excellent consultant. My follow up appointment was organised promptly and I will return in due course for a final follow up. A very thorough process. My recovery was swift, I was never in particular pain and my incision was beautifully neat. Similar to another comment on here, I liked too that during my pre-admission tests, the nurses spoke so highly of Mr Yazbek! I am already recommending his skills to friends..“

    Mr Yazbek was very friendly and put me completely at ease, I had been in pain for some while and from the initial consultation, I was admitted to King Edwards for the operation, which was fully explained to me, once at the consultation and again prior to surgery. Mr Yazbek visited me post op, explained what had happened during surgery and what I can expect over the next few days. I hope never to have a need to see a gynecologist but if I do I would certainly not hesitate to see Mr Yazbek again even if it meant waiting.

    Excellent treatment and care. Mr Yazbek was very proactive and managed the balance of providing me with all the information I needed so I felt some element of control over my health issue, but also guiding me to make the best decision for my health. He was patient and dealt with all my questions with great courtesy. Nothing was too much trouble. When my condition became more of an emergency he was excellent at overcoming any barriers or bureaucracy so I could be taken for surgery as soon as possible. For my day patient operation he was reassuring good humoured and calming and at all times I felt I was in the best hands possible. Post operative care was also exemplary. Swift follow up and advice. I could not have asked for me more. I would definitely recommend Mr Yazbek.

My operation and recovery went as smoothly as could be hoped and I am very pleased with the result which has greatly improved my life. Thank you! (I also liked that the nurses obviously rated him very highly and gave knowing nods of approval when they saw the neatness of my wound.)

    Mr Yazbek is an exceptional consultant. I went to see him due to issues with several very large fibroids and a reluctance to have surgery. He soon reassured me I was in good hands taking his time to talk me through the recommended procedure and recovery process. He has a very approachable, calming, patient and compassionate professional manner and always took time to answer all my questions before and after my surgery. I appreciate all the visits I had from him and his colleagues during the few days I was in hospital after my myomectomy. Thanks to Mr Yazbek and his team, although my condition was complexed, the surgery went very well with minimal scarring and my recovery was so much better than I had thought it would be prior to the procedure. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    As soon as I met Mr Yazbek I felt at ease. I had been avoiding a surgery for many months because of previous bad experiences elsewhere. Mr Yazbek allowed me to take a deep breath of relief, as I felt completely safe in his hands. I received excellent care from Mr Yazbek who was always so patient and kind with my many questions and worries. He always took time to explain things to me, and to discuss options. I am so pleased that I finally found Mr Yazbek, and I would highly recommend him.

    This doctor was excellent. So nice, friendly and clear about condition and operation I had. He had plenty of time to talk and explain things to me, I didn’t feel rushed at all. My operation went perfectly, it has pain free and I have recovered super fast with an excellent post op meeting with him

    I have been a patient of Mr Yazbek for a few years. Mr Yabek is extremely professional and knowledgeable and one of the best doctors in his field. I am especially impressed with how caring and kind Mr Yazbek is. He always manages to see me on a short notice, always returns my calls on the same day and is always there to consult me or to organise that I see another doctor, when this is necessary. Our daughter, who is 18 years old, is also a patient of Mr Yazbek and is extremely happy that he is her doctor. It is very rarely that one can find a doctor of such calibre and I cannot recommend Mr Yazbek highly enough.

    Mr Yazbek picked up my care very close to my operation (2 days!) but was so kind, reassuring and confident both pre and post-op. I’m very grateful for his expertise, advice and care. His support team in the office were also fantastic in dealing with my many questions. I would highly recommend him.

He was efficient, professional, kind but most of all reassuring. Mr Yazbeck certainly made a difference in getting me through a horrible experience. I would highly recommend him.
