From the moment I was diagnosed with breast cancer Mr Poonawala treated me with compassion and explained everything to myself and husband. I never felt rushed whilst seeing Mr Poonawala and he treated me with respect. As soon as you mention his name to the nurses, other clinical staff a smile comes on their face so I knew I was in safe hands. Operation was successful and scar was very neat, again representing the compassion, respect and pride in his work. Can't thank you enough for doing a marvellous job and making this horrendous time somewhat less stressful.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October and have since undergone a mastectomy in November due to there being two tumours present. The whole experience was a huge shock especially given my age of 34 at diagnosis. Mr Poonawala is very kind, attentive and explains everything clearly. He made me feel instantly at ease and listened to myself and my husband and answered all of our questions. He is a truly lovely doctor and is so skilled. My scar is so neat and tidy and actually makes me smile. I saw him today as I had a build up of fluid in my armpit and he just popped it- with his hands- no pain what so ever. Amazing! I am in complete gratitude to this lovely, kind man. Thank you so much for everything you have done and are doing! Thank you also to my nurse Alison and all the rest of the team at Clatterbridge. Everybody is lovely and they treat you with respect and kindness. I have never smiled and laughed so much, as during my stay in Clatterbridge hospital.

I had a lumpectomy in August of this year at Clatterbridge Hospital. I can't fault the care I received from the whole team. Mr Poonawala was very clear and considerate in my treatment. My scar seems to be healing nicely and his bedside manner was excellent. He could teach my GP a thing or two. Thank you to all at Clatterbridge.

Response from Mr Shabbir Poonawala

Thanks a lot for your praise which I have passed on to the rest of the team too. I am sure your GP tries his/her best in difficult circumstances and the limited time for consultations, (time)which I usually ignore, making all of you wait longer than your appointed time. Sorry for this..

This is the second time I have had Breast Cancer in ten years, the first time I have been under the care of Mr Poonawala. What can I say, Mr Poonawala is a lovely, lovely person. He takes the time to explain things in terms you understand. He listens to your concerns and try his best to put you at ease. He even includes the person with you. I have to say that the whole team at Clatterbridge Breast Clinic are so caring they make what is a frightening time bearable.

Response from Mr Shabbir Poonawala

I am glad that your recent frightening experience (for the second time in 10 years) was made bearable by our excellent team in the Breast Unit at Wirral University Teaching Hospital. Thanks for your positive comments.
