I was operated on Dr Alkaffaf at the Alexandria in Cheadle for a hernia, he was very informative abut the operation and on the day everything went as he said and the follow up was positive as well. It would just have been helpful (if possible) to have seen him after I came round from the operation.
From my first consultation Mr Alkhaffaf was very thorough caring and relaxed. He explained the whole procedure fully which put my mind at ease as I was extremely nervous. My operation was a complete success with minimal scarring. I would highly recommend Mr Alkhaffaf.
I was referred to Mr Alkhaffaf due to a Hiatus Hernia. Mr Alkhaffaf was very friendly at each consultation, fully explaining the procedure required and the possible side effects following the operation. The surgery was a complete success, I would highly recommend Mr Alhaffaf and his team.
Mr Bilal Alkhaffaf who performed my operation to remove the gallbladder was excellant. He was very caring and explained the procedure which put me at ease. The aftercare was also excellant by the nursing staff.
