Mr Kash Akhtar
4th September 2020
I have been a colleague of Mr Akhtar's for more than 3 years. I have worked as a Senior Physiotherapist in both the United Kingdom as well as in Australia. As such, I have dealt with dozens of Consultants in my years of private practice. Few Consultants I have ever worked with come close to Mr Akhtar's level of professionalism.
Clinically, Mr Akhtar is excellent. I have always had 100% confidence in referring a patient for an opinion on management. Mr Akhtar's team always endeavour to book in mutual patients promptly which is hugely beneficial to the management process. I would always receive a clinical letter with Mr Akhtar's rehabilitation recommendations within 24 hours, which again, is very beneficial for the patient's pathway to recovery.
I have seen Mr Akhtar's patients post-operatively following a variety of surgical procedures such as arthroscopy, reconstructive surgery (such as ACL) and trauma surgery. I strongly endorse Mr Akhtar's abilities as a surgeon. Many of his cases recover ahead of expected due to the minimally invasive nature of his surgery. Swelling and early range of motion are almost always much better than with other surgeons.
Mr Akhtar's clinical reasoning and surgical skills are complemented by a delightful bedside manner. He is warm, empathetic and caring to all patients. If you have a serious injury or are in serious pain, it can be a very stressful time. Mr Akhtar has an unparalleled ability to put people at ease in these difficult times.
To re-iterate, Mr Akhtar is one of the best Doctors I have ever worked with - both in the UK and Australia. I strongly endorse his services to anyone with a knee issue.
