Mr Arvin treated me for a broken neck. At all times he was open, clear in his explanations and advice, as well as being consistently genuinely friendly and caring. Clearly highly competent and well regarded by the staff and other patients who instils complete trust and encourages two-way communication. My recovery is, in major part, down to his thoughtful advice and care along with the excellent staff at Queens. A particularly nice touch is the offer from him for me to get in touch in the future if I have any further concerns or issues with my injury. Fairly typical and indicative of his overall approach.
I was in the neuro critical care at queens hospital, I suffered a bleed on the brain and was put in a sedated coma for two days and I suffered hydrochephealus so had to have a drain inserted into my skull to release the pressure in my brain. I received excellent treatment from all the team from nurses to consultants. On the ward I had 24 hour care, they were there for me and were there for my family and my wife giving support and keeping us all aware of the current critical situation. As I got better I realised how lucky I was to survive as I got told that 80% Of people do not reach the hospital. All the staff on the neuro critical care unit were all supportive and excellent right through my recovery. Mr Bakar Arvin also phoned me at home to confirm that my MRI scan results were clear and that if I had any questions or problems not to hesitate to phone him. As a personal comment I had first class treatment, and I survived this critical illness.
I suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage in May 2016 was taken by ambulance as an imergency to Queens Hosspital where Mr Babak Allvin operated on me I was given a low level of survival. After surgery with his skills I was able to make a fully recovery. It is because of this remarkable man I am here today. I have had two visits to his surgery for check-ups, both positive where he explained everything to me and answered my questions and concerns and gave me the opportunity to say a BIG thank you for saving my life.
Mr Arvin is a very professional - support and friendly consultant He makes his patients feel at ease - he listens and gives you time to ask questions He also will include family and friends that go with you on your appointments I also had surgery which Mr Arvin undertook - during this time I could not have asked for a more brilliant , excellent, supportive and accomplished neurosurgeon A very Big Thank you
