Mr AlKhaffaf is an extremely pleasant consultant. From my first consultation onwards with him he put me at ease. He listened sympathetically to my symptoms and concerns and arranged the relevant tests. He subsequently explained everything in detail about my condition and provided me with written information about the procedure that needed to be done. When my condition suddenly worsened I was given a speedy appointment to see him and an urgent operation by laparoscopy was performed a week later. At the follow up, Mr AlKhaffaf explained clearly the findings of the operation. A video of the procedure was extremely informative and interesting. Mr AlKhaffaf possesses, as a consultant/surgeon, the very valuable qualities of being both approachable and talented. So thank you to Mr AlKhaffaf for looking after me.

Right from my first consultation and throughout the surgery Dr Alkhaffaf was professional, and approachable I would like to thank Dr Alkhaffaf for his great attitude and professional care shown towards myself.

Dr Alkhaffaf from the first consultation on examination sent me for a mri scan saying his thoughts are i have a Inguinal hernia and that it was a correct diagnosis.After surgery my recovery and aftercare has been fantastic so a massive thank you to a great person and surgoen
A year long journey to a diagnosis of my Hiatus Hernia ended with Mr Alkhaffaf. His confident & reassuring explanation of the necessary procedure was a relief. He welcomed my questions & addressed my concerns. He skilfully and successfully "repaired" me, and 8 weeks later discharged me on my 2nd. follow up appointment.
