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
I found Mr. Furrat Amen very patient, cheerful, courteous and very professional. He is very trust-worthy and explained his diagnosis in a language that a layman would understand. He is an outstanding surgeon and I was very relaxed when he operated on me. I had a speedy recovery under his care. He is very thorough in his job, and there is little room for improvement.
I have had a radical parotidectomy operation. Mr Amen performed the operation which took 5 hours. He was very attentive and put me at my ease before and after the operation. After having 6 weeks of radiotherapy I am seen at 6 week intervals at the clinic and Mr Amen has listened to any problem I have had and examined me thoroughly. His reassurance has been a great comfort to myself and my wife and we are eternally grateful. for all his support
I found Mr Amen a very compassionate, and courteous man whilst he was caring for my youngest son for nearly 12 months. On the few occasions that i met with him, he was very clear with us with his diagnosis, and the long journey that son was going to be on and hugely understanding of all our concerns that we were going through. My son trusted Mr Amen, that was good enough for me.
Mr Amen has been caring for my 20 year old son at Addenbrookes Hospital. He has in all aspects been exceptional. He is honest, trustworthy, professional and quite clearly a fantastic surgeon. He came every week to see my son during 2 long inpatient stays and if not him, one of his team, even when Leo was moved to the teenage and young adults cancer ward. I cannot express our gratitude in words for everything he has done so far as there are no adequate words to use. A wonderful and kind clinician to say the least. We also felt that he was part of the larger Head and Neck Team so during weekends for example, Mr Fish would visit Leo. The team element made us feel secure when Mr Amen was off site. Sharmaine his secretary was also amazing. I am so grateful for her time, patience, understanding and continued help. Thank you so much
