Mr Amen is a kind, calm, empathetic and extremely reassuring doctor who includes his patient in decision making and ensures what is being explained is properly understood. I would recommend him to anyone as he performed my thyroidectomy with such precision that I had no pain to speak of afterwards and indeed no scar. He gave me great care before and after surgery and obviously inspires an excellent team around him. I was extremely fortunate to have him treat me.
Dr Amen is the perfect surgeon, communicates well, listens to your needs and most of all is caring and extremely skilled at his specialist surgery. Thank you Furrat for all your help in curing my thyroid problems.
Very charming, polite and professional. Excellent well delivered and concise explanations of procedures and clear answers to all questions relating to my recent parathyroidectomy. Surgery was carried out promptly and successfully leaving a very small and neat scar which healed very quickly. No soreness or pain at all after the operation or during recovery. It was a complicated procedure with many risks which were averted with careful and truly expert surgery. I felt in safe and competent hands throughout. I feel privileged to have met and been treated by this amazing surgeon.
I recently had a Thyroid lobectomy carried out by Mr. Amen. I cannot recommend him highly enough. From our initial meeting to my final consultation Mr. Amen was fantastic. He explained everything clearly and concisely, which immediately put me at ease. The operation was performed at the Spire Cambridge Lea and the whole experience was extremely professional. I hope that I do not need his services again but if I do I know I will be in very safe hands.
