Mr Attar is both professional and personable, he presents all options clearly to ensure patients can make informed decisions regarding their treatment. Mr Attar (along with his excellent PA) ensured smooth scheduling and throughout my procedures and recovery I felt in very safe hands. I highly recommend Mr Attar and I am grateful for the excellent treatment I received from him.

I ended up in the care of Mr Attar after kidney stone attack and emergency nephrostomy procedure.I spent in the hospital two weeks with sepsis- during this time Mr Attar took the trouble to come and see me every day. He was kind, considerate and patient in explaining in detail the next step of my recovery - the operation to break the stones.He genuinely cares about his patients,is very professional and very approachable.He took the effort to contact my worried husband and assured him about the progress of my treatment.Apart from being an excellent doctor he is a wonderful,compassionate human being.I can not praise him highly enough and would recommend him to anybody in need of good urologist.

I am delighted to write this review. I have been one of Mr Attar’s patients for over two years. He treated me for bladder cancer in September 2017 at The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Since then I return for regular check-up cystoscopies. He is always so kind and friendly and he immediately puts me at ease. I feel totally confident under his care because I know I am being wonderfully looked after. In mid-October I noticed a warning sign and I telephoned Mr Attar’s very kind PA. Within an hour I was on my way to The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital for a test. A short while later Mr Attar arranged for me to have a CT scan. This showed two kidney stones - one of which was large and could have been very troublesome. Two weeks later I attended The Princess Grace Hospital for the first of two procedures - the second one following the week later. Mr Attar and all the staff were amazing. The kidney stones have gone and I am feeling fit and well. Fantastic result! It gives me great pleasure to recommend Mr Attar. He is a very special doctor.
