Mr Moawad was very kind to me during my visit at St Peters Hospital. He treated my painful varicose veins on both legs. His manner was excellent, both in explaining the procedure and making me feel at ease with his sense of humour. He took great care during the procedure and seemed very thorough. Allowing me to do this under local anaesthetic rather than general, also helped my recovery time. Many thanks
Mr Moawad was highly professional in both his initial consultations, pre-surgery discussion and follow up appointment. He clearly explained the issues associated with the veins in my leg (based on the ultrasound test results) and why he felt that surgery was the right option for me. He made it clear that this being non-urgent it was my choice as to if and when I wanted the surgery. I went ahead based on the pain in my leg and the knowledge that it wouldn't clear up without intervention from the discussions with Mr Moawad - if I didn't trust him I would have looked elsewhere for a surgeon but I had no hesitation in trusting him.
He is a very nice gentleman, listening and understanding my poor speaking English. He gave me all the assurance I needed to feel comfortable to have the operation.
My case was apparently very unusual and complicated. While I was in hospital in November-December 2012, Mr Moawad was meticulous in explaining the situation and his bedside manner was always kind and reassuring. This has continued in all follow-up appointments since then. I always feel that his personal interest in my continued progress is genuine, and I greatly appreciate his courtesy and his willingness to keep me well informed. Thank you!
From initial meeting at A&E , through admission, investigation, referral, operation and post op care, Mr. Moawad has provided courteous, thorough and efficient treatment. He has explained the results of tests and the treatment available and recommended, taking care to manage risks where appropriate. My thanks go to him and his team.
