I was referred to Mr Bilal Alkhaffaf through the NHS. I had a Consultation with two weeks and then my operation a couple of weeks later. Excellent service! I had Keyhole surgery and everything went well. Mr Bilal Alkhaffaf explained everything in detail to me. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I found Mr Alkhaffaf to be very professional and considerate towards both myself and my husband at each consultation appointment. He was punctual on each occasion and made me feel at ease at an otherwise stressful time. I would highly recommend him.
Had gall bladder removed. Received excellent care from Dr. Alkhaffaf and his staff. He took the time to listen to my concerns and explain the operation fully to myself. Overall an excellent experience and thank you to all involved.
I had Laparoscopic Cardiomyotomy for Achalasia in May this year. Achalasia is a rare condition and there isn’t a lot of information available. I was referred by my local hospital as they could not perform the procedure themselves. Mr Bilal AlKhaffaf was incredibly reassuring. Not only did he explain much more about my condition, he advised me about the different treatments and helped me the most appropriate choice for myself. Throughout the entire process he was there, I never felt like my questions were an annoyance. The post-surgery care has been just as lovely. This entire process has been stressful but I can honestly say that Mr Bilal AlKhaffaf has made it as pleasant as it would be in that situation.
I went into hospital on 20th June for hiatus hernia repair and can honestly say that I was treated with the utmost respect at every stage of my 3 night stay. Everything was fully explained, my questions answered and post operatively I was looked after extremely well. For anyone facing surgery in the future please be assured that you will be cared for extremely well.
