I got told I had cancer on the 13th jan 2016, as you can imagine not a happy chap, but hey oh, anyway my surgeon /consultant was absolutely fantastic, dr furrat Armen was just incredible and his team, who performed my neck disection, nothing but respect for all of them, the porter who wheeled me up to theatre a guy called ebeneezer he kept me calm and collective, as well as all of the team did there, I woke in recovery ward after a 5 hr operation, went to my ward m5 I believe and all of the staff were just incredible, nothing but admiration for all of addenbrookes, I'm going in tomoro 21st march for my radiotherapy and chemotherapy if all of the staff in oncology were as good as Dr Amen's team I will be happy. Keep up the good work addenbrookes.
I am a GP in Spalding & have been most impressed with the kindness shown to patients by Mr Amen. He went out of his way to communicate clearly to the practice to make the journey for the patient with cancer very smooth and an exceptional colleague to work with
having seen several ENT consultants which caused a delay in my diagnosis, I was finally under the care of Mr Amen. His kindness & professionalism has been exceptional to none and he always took time to be thorough, explain things and take the view of the patient in all decisions. Handsome, rare ,diamond.
I cannot praise Mr Amen enough. He has always been kind, courteous and unfailingly patient in all his dealings with us. His manner and reassurance gave my husband a great deal of confidence at a time when he thought that there was no hope. We cannot recommend him highly enough. He is a good man and we will always be grateful to him for his skill, kindness and very heart warming sense of humour.
From the moment we entered the room, scared, apprehensive and totally into the unknown we were put at ease by Mr Furrat Amen, he was kind, listened to our questions, was totally honest about the procedures and what was going to happen. We could not have wished for a nicer person to help us through this difficult time, he was not only a very good surgeon but also very gentle and kind and understood our worries. He did not rush us out of his surgery, although was very busy and asked if we had any questions. After the surgery he made a personal visit to Jonathan to check he was alright. We could not fault Mr Amen and all of his team from the moment we met them until our last meeting last week. Thankyou
