Mr Anjum Qureshi
15th September 2023
I was diagnosed with a complex schwannoma just before the first lockdown in 2020 and Mr Qureshi was my consultant. Our initial conversations were very open and honest and I was left with no doubt about the seriousness of my condition and what the eventuality could be. His explanation of my condition together with his planned course of action was amazing in keeping me calm and informed. Despite all the issues of securing a bed due to COVID to carry out my operation he continued to pursue it and kept me fully informed.
At all stages, he was completely transparent of the complexities and dangers of the op and what my life could be like afterwards which despite being scary was very much appreciated. Once the op was carried out he kept in touch and made sure my recovery was on track. I am told the results have been amazing and that the outcome was better than could be hoped for. I had full mobility from the moment I left hospital. 2 1/2 years on I have just had a further check up, everything is as it should be and I cannot thank this man enough for what he did for me in what was a challenging environment both with COVID and for the condition he was treating me for. I realise not all heroes wear capes and we should remember and appreciate everything they do for us
