First rate. Diagnosed my primary site head and neck cancer last year from which through his good offices and those of his colleagues I have recovered, sees me regularly for check ups and only today operated successfully on a benign ear tumour. All within fourteen days of diagnosis, had to delay a week because of my aspirin intake, and all on the NHS! Courteous and competent.
My partner is very deaf so I accompany her to appointments. Mr Amen is always patient, making sure things are understood. He is very courteous and polite, but also has a sense of humour and friendly manner. Mr Amen recently carried out local surgery ( unrelated to existing cancer) on my partner's ear. He did a brilliant job and the site is healing well. We attend regular check up appointments with this specialist. He is very thorough and tells us the truth, very reassuring. Our only criticism is the up to 2 hour in waiting room on appointment days which is somewhat stressful as we have transport waiting. t
Excellent facilities, very helpful and courteous staff, appointment on time so no waiting. The consultant is first class.
I had Cancer but was operated on followed by Radiotherapy. The result is that I am now showing no signs of this disease. This doctor and his colleagues always listened to my problems and concerns and always answered my questions to put my mind at rest. I was given good care and was examined properly and thoroughly. I am most grateful as to how I was treated and cared for, praise the Lord.
