After a year of being passed from one Specialist to another with no result and losing my faith in the NHS, Dr Maher was the first Dr to really listen to me and my explanation of my symptoms. He totally understood what I was saying and took note. After examining me and asking further questions, he was, after a year of being messed about, able to give me a working diagnosis. Further tests are required to confirm his diagnosis, but basically after a year of feeling ill and useless he has given me back hope. Thank goodness for Dr Maher.
he did everything he possibly could to help my problem now i enjoy good health, i think we are very blessed to have his expertise in nuneaton!
I felt very confident after my initial consultation with Dr Maher. He listened carefully to my condition and was very informative afterwards. His calm reassurance and expertise made the experience a positive one. He subsequently treated me with dignity, explained the procedure and was patient discussing any questions following it.
I have nothing but praise for Dr Maher. He was so very polite and compassionate. He listened and answered all of my questions. He explained things very clearly and concise. The appointment wasn't rushed and he was very caring. He is a brilliant Doctor.
He had read my notes prior to the appointment. Dr Maher spent time explaining my condition and the treatment options. This was not rushed and the explanation was very clear, he was very good at checking my understanding and asking if I had any questions. Great experience, recommended.
