Consultant Anaesthetist. I am a consultant anaesthestist at Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Trust. I specialise in anaesthesia for orthopaedic and bariatric surgery. I also have a specialist interest in obstetric anaesthesia.
Dr Soltanifar was very calm and patient and made me feel relaxed. He took time to answer questions before and after my operation. He was kind and caring.
He has a really relaxed and calming bedside manner and totally set my mind at ease. I don't like needles but once in the operating theatre, he was so quick and confidant that there was no time for any anxiety on my part. Very professional.
I met Dr Soltanifar when he came to my room to discuss my operation, I was having total knee replacement 10.1.2017, I had heard about spinal block and was not sure it was what I wanted i still preferred General anaesthetic, following discussion I changed my mind, the operation was total success and after when back to the room I had no ill effects at all, so sat up and ate. I have since had other knee done 19.5.17 again with Dr Soltanifar, using same procedure again great success. Dr also has good bed side manor and really put me at ease, I will recommend him and these procedure to anybody that asks me. Trevor Hobbs
Relaxed and confident bedside manner also willing answer all manner of questions. Thank you for your care during my stay.
I broke my tibia & fibula bones in my left leg and had three operations to fix this, the main operation was to fit an ilizarov frame on my leg. For all three procedures I was lucky to have Dr Soltanifar. He was extremely professional, discussed options, risks & explained everything clearly. He has a very calm, warm & friendly approach, which is great to put you at ease in these situations and before going into surgery makes conversations to try and relax you. His after care was of a high level, coming into see me in the ward after each operation (he made several visits after my main operation) and making sure I had the right medication to support my pain post op. The technical aspects of his job that he demonstrated are important but also having that human touch and empathy goes a long way for the patient and is appreciated. I'm grateful for everything he did to make sure I had the best care.
