Before l met Dr Kassam there was no progress with my treatment of tmj. When l met Dr Kassam, upon examining my jaw he had a plan of action straight away which allowed me to be confident in my Dr. Before Dr Kassam l could only open my mouth to 1cm which caused great discomfort, swelling, speech problems, couldn't yawn, neck pain, soft diet for years - if I chewed harder food I would be in pain the next day, migraines and pain. I needed to have open jaw surgery as my tmj led to tmd with arthritic changes. I have never had a Dr really listen, acknowledge my pain and take me seriously and I can't express how thankful I am because Dr Kassam has changed my life, living with pain everyday drains you but my confidence has allowed me to have faith things will look up and they have. I was involved throughout the planning of all my treatments, he explained everything I didn't understand so I didn't feel anxious about anything. I could just focus on recovering after surgery. Dr Kassam handled my surgery with such care and corrected what needed to be done. It has been three months post surgery and I can happily say the symptoms I had are no longer an issue, I can open my mouth to full capacity without pain. Recovery is still in progress as it takes time to heal but I am forever grateful for the care given as I could still be where was but I'm not. Any patient you treat is lucky to have you, thank you for everything Dr Kassam.

By far the best medical professional I have dealt with. The surgery carried out by Dr Kassam was of the highest standard and his help throughout my diagnosis and treatment was second to none. Will recommend him to anyone looking for a specialist in the field.

Dr Kassam has been great throughout my procedure. From the start he took to time to explain the procedure and has remained communicative throughout. He has also been adaptive and flexible to requests I have made. He has a personable manner that puts you at ease whilst also making you feel without a doubt he is a total knowledgable, experienced professional. I would without any hesitation recommend him.

Dr. Kassam performed a surgical excision on my scalp. As soon as I met him during my first visit, I knew I was in good hands. He is highly competent, and his lively nature and friendly attitude put me at ease before and during surgery. The suture was done to perfection! My wound healed very well, the scar is completely flat and my hair is now growing back. I am very pleased to have been assigned to Dr. Kassam at the hospital and I am very grateful for the care he gave me. Erika

Dr Kassam performed a little surgery on my lip and i am very pleased with the results. It heals beautifully and i am so glad i was operated by him. I was treated proffesionally, Dr Karim explained me everything, answered all my questions before, and was making sure, i know what was happening during the procedure. He is also a funny, happy person and he made me feel comfortable and relaxed during the operation. Excellent doctor.

I can honestly state that this was the best medical experience I’ve ever had. All the staff (nurses, assistants, anesthetist etc) had a lot of patience explaining all the details my surgery involved and they were supportive all the time, taking care of me more than I expected. They even tried to amuse me and to make jokes because they noticed that I was a little bit nervous before the surgery. I cannot express enough my gratitude for Mr Karim Kassam’s support during the entire process: when we had the appointments before the surgery (explaining in detail all the necessary aspects and side effects regarding the surgery), on the surgery day (being sure that all is clear to me and that I understood everything), after the surgery (confirming that everything went well). I was very impressed by Dr. Kassam’s kindness and, due to the fact that he always had a smile on his face, he made me feel comfortable with all the aspects of the surgery because, as we all know, a positive thinking and a boost of morale can lead to the best results and the best healing process. I realized that Dr Kassam is one of the specialists who really cares for his patients, being an example not only as a doctor, but as professional attitude as well. Thank you again for everything!
