    Sasi has been fantastic all the way through my process, in helping me understand my options right the way through to checking in with me after I got home from surgery. Highly Recommended. He has a friendly and human approach that I really appreciated, a great sense of humour and clearly a huge skill and experience in his field. I’m getting great results already just days after surgery.

    Mr Ramar is amazing I’m so glad he was my surgeon as I was petrified about having my gastric bypass he made feel at ease from start to finish. He discussed all my options and the procedure throughly and clearly so I could understand as my head was all over the place. Even when it was time to be discharged I was worried about going home he was so cool and calm at reassuring me. Thank you again I’m forever thankful for your care.

    Was amazing from start to finish, took the time to explain everything to me in a very relaxed and light hearted manner. Since having surgery 18 months ago o have gone on to loose 20 stone! I tell friends and family all the time how Mr Ramar saved my life and gave me a second chance, I only hope others who are in the position I was in get the opportunity I have had and are lucky as I was to have Mr Ramar perform gastric sleeve surgery on them, he really is a miracle worker.
