Although the condition was not cured Mr Naqui did every thing possible to help, explaining in detail the treatments employed and their pros and cons. Further, more invasive procedures were offered, which were declined. If required at later date the procedures were deemed necessary I would not hesitate to return to Mr Naqui.
Mr Naqui has operated on my hands twice, he makes himself very easy to understand at consultation, pre operation and post operation, he is very assuring in all aspects of the process.
After a referral from my local GP, I was given an appointment with Mr Naqui within three weeks. On my first visit for my consultation with Mr Naqui he was extremely interested in my issues with my thumb, which I had been suffering with. He recommended that I had a scan on my thumb and was able to proceed with the scan immediately on that day. When I returned for the results of the scan, which again was very quick, it showed that I had broken a small bone in my thumb. Mr Naqui then recommended a conservative form of treatment with a steroid injection. However if this procedure did not reduce the pain that I was feeling, he put a treatment plan in place for myself moving forward. I received the most professional, speedy care and treatment under Mr Naqui.
I have just undergone Carpel Tunnel Release and 12 months aftercare from Mr. Naqui and his team. All in all it was a trouble free experience. Mr Naqui carried out the surgery on a Saturday morning. He did his best to re assure me about the process and to explain what was happening. I didn't feel particularly nervous during the surgery as I couldn't feel anything other than pressure around my wrist. I had follow up appointments with Mr Naqui and several physio appointments. Today I have been discharged from the hospital. I am totally pain free and have full use and feeling back in my hand and fingers. Thank you to Mr. Naqui and the team. Excellent job!
Seen Mr Naqui regarding my hands. He was professional and sent me for some tests. I didn’t have to wait long for either the test or a follow up appointment with Mr Naqui. Very pleased with the treatment received.
