“Professor Ashkan, was very caring and took time to explain findings, what the status quo was and the way forward. I was told information in a clear concise manner. I had time to ask questions which he answered. I was informed what would happen next, which tests were required followed by another consultation re the results and a plan on the way forward. I felt at ease with Professor Ashkan, he was very approachable and a wealth of knowledge, a definite expert. Exactly what I wanted. “

It was brief, but he laid out the facts, explaining what he would do and post operative expectations. He also outlined the consequences of not having the operation. I do wish he could have come to see me after the operation. Someone else from the surgical team came to see me. I would imagine that he was too busy with other operations.

World class. An extraordinary level of expertise, experience and skill. Facing neurosurgery can be terrifying, but in Prof Ashkan I felt that I was in the safest, highly skilled and most caring of hands. He was able to make complex medical issues easy to understand for me as a patient and for my family, and set out the options, risks and issues in full detail, enabling me to reach fully informed decisions. He was happy to go through my sometimes extensive list of questions in however much detail I needed. I have undergone three neurosurgical operations conducted by Prof Ashkan, and others by his team. He has also supervised my radiotherapy and cyberknife. All the experiences were excellent and I felt very confident despite the complexity and risks of the procedures. He combines his ever expanding knowledge and experience with the most supportive and kind relations with patients and their families, and worked with the wider medical profession to ensure I received the best of all possible outcomes in my wider treatment. I have always felt treated as a 'whole person', who Prof Ashkan took time to get to know, and never just as an 'interesting case'. I could not recommend him more highly.

Professor Ashkan Is the kindest person you could ever meet. Without him I wouldn’t have got the help that I desperately needed, for that I am extremely grateful. He really cares about his patients, which is a unique quality. I think Professor Ashkan is an amazing consultant and I would never go to anyone else.
