I have worked with Professor Mughal for the last 5 years. He is a highly skilled upper GI surgeon with a wealth of experience. As well as this he demonstrates true leadership qualities.
Professor Mughal is a leading Upper GI Consultant general surgeon with an enormous experience in dealing with all aspects of benign and malignant disease. I would thoroughly recommend him as a professional and reasoned opinion, and as an excellent surgeon.
Professor Mughal is a nationally recognised and respected surgeon. He has been an inspiration for the many surgeons that he has trained but also more experienced colleagues. Having known Professor Mughal for a number of years, I have no hesitation in recommending him. A highly skilled surgeon, an excellent colleague and a very caring and empathetic clinician.
Mr Mughal is a consummate professional and a very talented Surgeon. he has been in the forefront of many surgical developments and has always been a very well respected colleague - both in the North West of the Country where he has been a Consultant for many years and in London region - where he has moved recently.
