I had no symptoms for any sickness, I was absolutely healthy, just a small lump on my neck appeared suddenly and I was diagnosed with a medullary carcinoma on my thyroid, one of the very serious, rare, But very scary type of cancer. I did my research and contacted Dr. Amen, hoping he can help me. I had email correspondence with Dr. Amen for 2 months prior to surgery and he was precise and very polite in answering all my questions in dept. I traveled all the way from Bulgaria to see him, and Dr. Amen performed 7 hours surgery on my neck. He did outstanding job; I recovered with no complications at all!, I was able to eat and walk 10 hours after the surgery; Dr. Amen assured me I am back to normal life in 2 weeks; No need for diet or any restrictions on any of my job duties, etc... He was absolutely honest explaining me all about my cancer case, the surgery to be performed with the smallest details before, during and after it. After the surgery, he visited me every day at the hospital, including on Sunday to check on me; It was very, very kind of him; I am positive not too many doctors do this gesture for their patients! I and my wife - We are totally convinced and calm; I am 100% cancer clean, as Dr. Amen assured us - he did his best for me! He even arranged the following genetic test for me, even though I am a private patient. I cannot express with simple words How much thankful I am, for I am living a second Life Thanks to Dr. Furrat Amen!!! God Bless you Sir! May God give you many, many years of good health and more! - So you can safe a lots of people's life! Thank You from all my Heart!
I had previously had complications after surgery and Mr Amen completely put me at ease when discussing my next surgery and he listened to my concerns. He is a wonderful consultant
There are so many kind words I could write about this exceptional person. Any individual with a positive focussed outlook can become a qualified professional. However, there are many key life skills that I believe are gifted with us along our journey. Mr Amen, or in my words 'a friend for life' Furrat has this special ambient feeling about him when I see him. He has this gift/ability to make you feel so relaxed, positive in your current status and more importantly trustworthy in what he talks to you about. I felt, and I still do, i am ALWAYS in the great hands on this special man and a great team around him as I work towards full recovery. Personally i feel blessed to have been offered such exceptional NHS care where I live and having now witnessed the depth of the NHS we are very fortunate people to have such a GREAT NHS system. Thank you
The care which I recently received from Mr. Amen, the surgical team and everyone involved with me during my operation and stay in Peterborough City hospital was faultless. We are extremely fortunate to have such dedicated people and such amazing facilities. My sincere thanks Roger Growcott
