Has always taken time to explain procedures with me and been honest regarding the possible outcomes of the operations, before, during and after, Also very good aftercare. William Walby
You never think it will ever happen to you and then Wow! You find yourself in a real life or death situation. Just over 12 months ago what I thought was a chest infection turned out to be my worst nightmare which I thought plenty of fluids and Paracetamol would cure Which is what GP’s tell you) wrong! Arriving in critical condition in the A&E department at Redditch hospital I was basically told that I was drowning in the build-up of fluid in my lungs (Empyema) also they found a diaphragmatic hernia so my hours left were numbered. I was then moved to The Priory. Enter the exceptional and multi-talented Ehab Bishay whose skills in the operating theatre literally saved my life. When I arrived in his care at The Priory I was scared even though I would never have admitted that to anyone it is only now that I understand what he did for me. It is his skill and brilliance in the operating theatre that saved mem, but it was also his empathy and support with the way he handled me and my petrified daughter. He holds that wonderful mix of basic human qualities, that of normality and the art of good communication. I cannot thank him enough and will always be in his debt for the simple gift of life that could so easily have gone.
Mr Bishay has looked after me with great kindness for the past 2 years since my surgery for Cancer. He has the time to listen, explain any doubts I may have and has arranged another scan as I have some discomfort. Also I cannot fault the staff at Heartlands I have had the best of treatment.
I was operated on by Mr Bishay for lung cancer 6 years ago I found him an excellent consultant very kind and understanding. I now see him annually for a checkup. He has a lovely manner and I can give him nothing but praise not only saving my life but also aftercare. There is could be no greater care than what I receive from Mr Bishay.
I was referred to Mr Bishay by another physician due to a lesion in my lung, suspected to be cancer. Mr Bishay explained his proposed course of action sympathetically and in detail, giving a procedure to determine wether it was malignant or not, and a prognosis in either case. He operated timeously and swiftly and was obviously highly pleased to be able to inform me that it was benign. An excellent surgeon and thorough gentleman, he earned my trust and respect by his impeccable performance.
