From my very first meeting with Prof. Aziz I felt very at ease and believed I was putting myself in the hands of a truly great surgeon. All procedures were explained in clear and concise lay man terms, which helped greatly when making decisions on my future options. I went into operating theatre with few nerves as Prof. Aziz had explained fully what would be happening. Obviously I remember nothing of the operation but the following morning Prof Aziz visited me offering more assurances that everything had gone well. As regards the result of the operation, I have been told by other medical professionals that my stoma bears all the hallmarks of an outstanding surgeon, for which I am truly grateful. Finally I think the way to give even greater care would be more after care once the patient has left hospital not particularly from Prof Aziz but other staff who you could raise issues, as at times you can feel very isolated, as I feel somewhat abandoned by the local stoma nurses. In conclusion I can only offer the highest praise of Prof Aziz and will always be grateful for the chance he has given me of an extended life.

I would unhesitatingly recommend Prof Aziz, especially in relation to specialist cancer surgery. His approach is clear but collaborative, involving me in the decision making process every step of the way. At no point have I felt unable to ask detailed questions or test propositions. Perhaps most importantly, I trust Prof Aziz's judgement.

I have complete trust in Professor Aziz and consider myself to be very fortunate to have been treated by such an exceptional committed person who, as well as being an incredible doctor, is one of the most courteous and caring medical professionals I have ever encountered. From the initial consultation, through my surgery and with regard to after care I have felt listened to, every query, anxiety answered. As my condition was unusual, I had a great many questions and never once did I feel hurried or that they were not relevant. On the day of my surgery Professor Aziz came to speak to me before I went to theatre and he was there when I came round many hours later to reassure me. He also took the trouble to telephone my husband who was beside himself with worry-we feel this was an wonderful thing to do. Since then my monitoring has been exemplary and frequent. I would also like to praise and thank Professor Aziz' team who have all helped me to cope with a challenging period of my life.

I found Professor Aziz to be most understanding and caring. He explained the best treatment for me and made sure that I fully understood everything. He has a very pleasant and reassuring manner, which immediately inspired my trust in his care. I had laparoscopic right hemicolectomy surgery and was in hospital for 5 days. I received amazing care from Professor Aziz and his medical team during that time. I am most grateful to Professor Aziz for his services and would not hesitate to recommend him.
