I cannot thank enought Dr Attar for the amazing care and time he has given me. The level of care was incredible, fast and he was always there for any concerns or questions. Very kind doctor who made me feel very safe and at ease with the surgery. Stephanie
I have received excellent care from Mr. Attar since 2015. He is knowledgeable and very detailed and talks about my issues in depth. He always makes me feel comfortable and treats everyone with respect. I can't speak highly enough of the support that Mr. Attar is giving me.
If it were at all possible, I would add more stars to the above for I have nothing but the highest praise for Mr Attar. His care and attention, not only to medical details, but also to interaction with the patient is superb. Let me give you just one example of this: I was very unwell one night and in considerable pain, it must have been about 3 am in the morning. Lying in bed, and feeling very sorry for myself (justifiably I believe!) I decided I needed to let Mr Attar know how I felt so I sent him an email from my tablet. Mr Attar replied - within the hour (please note again time of night) had spoken to the night staff to sort things our, and was at my bedside very, very early in the morning. Quite exemplary in my opinion. Furthermore his continuing care has been faultless. I can say with all honesty, that having started as a patient I regard him now as a trusted physician and friend. PS I was both an NHS and a private patient - equally good care!
Mr Attar is knowledgeable and approachable, listens keenly and is never too busy to take an interest in your case. He has been committed to my progress and the friendly, informal, caring manner with which he treats patients is refreshing and highly professional. i felt very safe in his capable hands. many thanks AG
