I feel very lucky to be under Doctor Kassams care, other than being an extremely experienced Doctor, he is one of those professionals who really cares for his patients wellbeing, makes an effort and goes the extra mile for them.
His dedication to his profession shows in his unrushed care towards patients. His calm demaenaour is admirable, and I was not able to tell if he had just come to my appointment after a complicated surgery as he politely and patiently consults with his patients who have waited months to have appointments with him.
Today I was particularly nervous about a treatment- I requested some spa music to which he politely obliged. This along with his gentle manner helped me to stay calm and not faint!

In my 19 years experience, I saw a first Dr who has got the knowledge of medicines better than GPS and M pharmacist. My wife spent 4 years in Queens hospital without ANY diagnosis in same old debt but when I get my referral to Mr Kasam Karim he found a solution for my BSM burning sensation mouth which was hurting me soo bad since a year no one was able to treat but only giving 1 tablet by Dr Kasim it got better and even with that tablet I decreased 1 tablet from my repeat. In my opening, that patient will be lucky who seen Kasam although all team is wonderful in this department. I really like to appreciate them they are doing their best even after many NHS Cuts.

Patient seen for:Wisdom teeth removal
I could not recommend Dr. Karin enough, from start to finish he was informative, polite and professional. I felt involved in my care. My procedure was painless, he explained everything step by step and I felt really well looked after. He had a good relationship with staff and the whole procedure felt controlled. I knew I was in the hands of a true professional.
Dr Karim introduced himself and the team. He took time to explain before the procedure and assured me of all risks whilst assuring me that his and the team priority is to ensure that my health and the procedure goes as planned. During the procedure he explained what he was doing whilst asking me when he needed me to open or close my mouth (as this was a extraction of wisdom teeth). He advised me when there may be times when I might feel a little more pressure; because of this I felt at ease. I have not had many operations but he was very professional and I will definitely recommend Dr Karim and his team. Thank you so much.

Dr Kassam was very friendly and thorough in helping with my diagnosis. He was also very detailed in explaining what to expect, and had I had any queries he was very approachable and made me feel at ease. Overall a very great surgeon. Thank you!
Patient seen for:TMJ Pain
Dr. Kassam was fantastic when he pierced our 9 year old daughter’s ears. He was kind and patient. Our daughter was laughing and smiling throughout. Thank you Dr. Kassam!
Mr Kassam was very good at keeping me informed and seeing me at short notice to keep track of my recovery. Excellent service.
Patient seen for:excision of severe dysplasia on the lower left side of my tongue
Dr Kassam was part of the ITU outreach team who assessed my trachea following its removal, as the hole was not closing as quickly as they had hoped it was decided to stitch it. It was Dr Kassam that numbed the trachea and stitched the wound. His manner was friendly, he explained what he was doing and why. I was very very anxious but he immediately put me at ease and I felt no pain, it was like spending time with an old friend chatting about all manner of things which took my mind off of the procedure being carried out.
The nurses on the ward removed the stitches too soon the wound had not healed, the ITU outreach team were called to assess, I was very anxious but they again immediately put me at ease and called Dr Kassam. In less than half an hour Dr Kassam arrived to numb and re-stitch. The outreach team remained with me the whole time while waiting for Dr Kassam.
I cannot thank or praise Dr Kassam and the outreach team enough for the care they have given me they were absolutely wonderful.
A very pleasant and outstanding team who gave me the kindest of service whilst my operation took place. Every part of my journey was explained and conducted in a very professional manner. I can't praise Dr Karim and his team enough it was like been treated as a family member in a VIP way, I would very highly recommend Dr Karim and his team should the opportunity arise.

Patient seen for:Enlarged Lymph Nodes
Dr Kassam is a very friendly doctor, he answered all of my questions in a manner that I understood and he was quick in replying too. I'm really impressed with the care I received from him given the complexity of my case. I can't recommend him enough. He's a great doctor.
excellent experience. very gentle, and great at what he does. I didn't even realise when the the tooth came out. Thank you for making this a better experience than my last one with another surgeon.
Patient seen for:Oral Surgery
I had a wash and steroid injection for my jaw and am very pleased with the results - thank you Dr Karim Kassam!
Dr Kassam is an excellent doctor. He's very patient, caring. Time of my appointment Dr Kassam explained thoroughly in details about by TMJ surgery. I have never come across before any Drs like Dr Kassam. Thank you for all your help!
An attentive consultant who is clearly of expertise in his field. Provided a clear solution to my TMJ problems with a course of action to prevent it from recurring. Many thanks!
Dr Karim Kassam was very thorough and very helpful during his consultation, he is the first doctor I have met who made me very at ease as he explained my procedure rather then previous and numerous doctors I have seen before who had filled me with dread and confusion. I shall be undergoing a procedure with Dr Karim Kassam and I already feel like I'm recieveing the best possible helpful care.
I had a brilliant experience with Dr Kassam today, he was both informative and professional with great communication before, during and after the procedure.
Without reservation and with the utmost enthusiasm, I recommend Mr. Kassam. I saw him after being referred for TMJ pain. When I told him about my history of pain, he immediately recommended an MRI, as previous doctors had only done X-Rays and found nothing. The MRI showed a broken disc in between my jaw and skull. I finally felt validated and heard- Mr. Kassam has a lot of respect and care for his patients. He is kind and thorough, insisting on quality of care and intent on fixing problems. After two arthrocentis procedures, we decided to remove the disc, which meant open-jaw surgery (a discectomy with lateral thigh fat graft). This was a scary prospect for me but Mr. Kassam did everything he could to put my mind at ease. I am forever grateful for his continued care and interest in my wellbeing. The surgery was six weeks ago and my pain has improved, the scarring is barely noticeable and my mouth opening has gone from the width of my pinky to nearly the length of it.
Dr Kassam is an excellent doctor.
He's very patient, caring and explains everything thoroughly. Thank you for all your help!
It was a pleasure having Mr Kassam to look after my mother. He is a very friendly and extremely helpful doctor. My mother and myself feel very lucky that he was the one looking after us.
Made me feel at ease instantly. Very thorough and professional from the outset, and throughout he listened to me and was most sympathetic.
Explained treatment and options very well. Took time to identify issue and was very responsive to queries. Furthermore, when I struggled to get a follow up appointment Dr Kassam went above and beyond to ensure I was seen. Thank you
From the moment I walked in the Dental Dr and staff were excellent, I am normally scared of needles, but not with them I wasn’t. They all exactly made me with comfortable and talked to me about the procedure I was having. The dental nurse too was amazing and I asked her to hold my hand and she did ensuing me that all is well. Thank you all for you guys are GREAT.
Mr (Dr) Kassam was especially helpful in explaining the procedures and options available and the associated risks. He went out of his way to fit in additional appointments at convenient times. He followed up promptly to obtain information from other specialists. He was very flexible in adapting to my changing needs. Above all he seemed to have a personable, sympathetic and thoroughly professional manner in dealing with his patients.
Each step of the process dr Karim has explained clearly what will happen next. The surgery happened quickly and the post appointment was reassuring to have booked in.
Dr Karim Kassam did a thorough investigation of my problems, a most thorough kind and considerate Doctor. I felt he listened and understood my feelings. I never felt that he rushed the consultation ( this is a very busy department). I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Kassm. He investigated my problmem with care and kindness. I saw Dr Kassam at the Homerton Hospital and felt I could have been in a private hospital. Staff at the hospital were all efficient ad helpful. What could have bee a very worrying time for me was made a lot more easy with the kindness that was shown to me.
Excision of expected lymphoma on neck under ga was for me absolutely smooth and without complications. Incision very carefully made, and minimal. Dr Kassam manner - relaxed, confident and direct was very reassuring.
Many thanks also to the support team - anaesthetists and nurses who were equally supportive. I especially appreciated the jovial and reassuring presence of ward nurse (B Mulenga) who I thought does a fantastic job.
Hello , To cut a very long story short for this review purposes but since the start of December 2018 I woke up with what I thought was mouth ulcers in my mouth. Being a typical man I thought they would go away after a short period of time but they didn’t and I progressively got worse and I started to eat less and less every day, to the extent I was not eating at all. In January 2019 I saw 3 different GPs who all said we don’t know what this infection my mouth was they prescribed Amoxilyn and cordysal mouthwash and bonjela gel. None of these treatments worked at all they actually made it worse. Then I went Whipps x hospital and got admitted for 6 nights and I was seen by 4 departments and every doctor told they had never this kind of infection and because they couldn’t diagnose the issue they really could me the correct medicine. After hearing all these doctors saying that you do feel very concerned and feel very much in the dark. The light at the end of this tunnel came when I was referred to Homerton hospital and I met Dr Karim Kassam straight away he gave me hope with manor he gave me confidence he gave clear instructions but more importantly than that he took time. He did my biopsy this Saturday gone the results are not back yet but I’m not concerned because I’m Dr Kassam’s hands. There other people I would also mention at Homerton hospital, the Thomas Audley ward where I am are really nice especially there is one nurse here called Khadija who has been brilliant she also is a credit to your hospital but too herself she has time for everyone even when she is busy with things. If I have made any spelling mistakes I’m putting that down to the medicines I’m on. Many Thanks To all the Homerton Hospital team and staff who are still looking after me especially Dr Kassam.
Dr Karim was friendly and made me feel very comfortable to discuss the issues I have. His explanations were explicit and I left feeling good as he made things clearer to me.
Its not often that I write reviews unless I feel compelled to and in this case I really do! Dr Kassam was true a superstar. I was incredibly nervous about my procedure but his wonderfully positive yet calm and soothing nature made me feel secure and at ease. He was so diligent, explained everything so well and made me feel very safe and looked after. My surgery was so quick and accurate with a small amount of pain- and I wish every doctor could be more like him. 10/10.
I am extremely grateful to Dr Karim Kassan for his listening skills and the empathy he showed over my concerns before surgery . Without his re-assurance and validation over my feelings I could have never gone through the stressful procedure of surgery . I think all the doctors should take example from him as his professionalism and caring attentions for his patients had a huge impact on my recovery . Thank you for taking the time to explain things thoroughly and for being able to decrease my anxiety over surgery .
Dr Kassam and his team have been looking after my husband. It has been first class treatment. We were very worried and afraid of what was going to happen. Dr Kassam made us at ease straight away explaining everything that would happen during the operation and the recovery. He has given his time and expertise, we never felt rushed, he listened to all our questions. My husband is thankfully on the mend now and we owe this to Dr Kassam and his team's great knowledge and experience. My family are very grateful to them.
I received excellent treatment and care from Dr Karim Kassam who removed a lesion on my face last month. He was compassionate, efficient and very attentive. He had a remarkable ability to put my at ease for this delicate surgery on my face and his post-operative care has been exemplary.
On Monday 10th September 2018 Mr Kassam and his team removed a BCC from my forehead under local anaesthetic in the Day Unit at Homerton Hospital. From first to last he has been friendly, efficient and informative. He has taken -(and is still taking) great care to ensure that the resulting wound is healing well. He has also assured me that if the scar should bother me in any way he willbe able to do something about it, and I have every confidence that this wiould be the case.
I'd just like to take this opportunity, - five weeks on and with the wound still needing however long it takes to heal - to thank him very much and to record my appreciation for his work.
I have a an very good experience, my operation seems to have gone well
My experience with dr Karim kassam has been outstanding, I’m very grateful for all his help over the last few days , I have been in extreme pain due to wisdom tooth removal last week and have experienced severe pain over the last 5/6 years , after being under the oral max team for a number of years, with nothing being done for me also a number of errors I have finally found a dr willing to help me reduce my pain and help any way
he can , he has reduced some of my pain which is a god send and will look forward to working with this dr in the near future to try and resolve/relieve my pain problems.
Dr Kassam and his team did a brilliant job in every aspect! Attentive, caring, patient with all my questions – Dr Kassam was able to bring comfort and ease in what was supposed to be a traumatic experience. He made the whole process rather pleasant and even fun. As I was having an operation for the first time in my life, Dr Kassam was able to reassure me all was to be ok, which did mean a lot to me! He handled it all in a very professional manner, even taking extra time to make sure all was perfectly done and with minimal scarring. For which I will be always grateful! It has been 4 days since the procedure and the wound is already healing pretty well and with almost no pain. I cannot thank you enough, Dr Kassam, for your professionalism and for being so good to me! It is my absolute pleasure to highly recommend Dr Kassam and his team for their professionalism and kind attention to every small detail! If, in the future, a further visit is required, I will have absolutely no doubts to look for Dr Kassam again!
Dr Karim was very helpful, he was efficient and treated me straight away without hesitation. I am pleased with his service and his overal kindness.
Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Caring, empathetic and personable. Couldn’t have asked for more.
An amazing professional who I have complete trust and assurance in...
Excellent caring attention. Everything fully explained. Very caring approach. Felt very comfortable.
Dr Kassam was really friendly and put me at absolute ease before, during and after my procedure. Would highly recommend him and his team.
Dr Karim went above and beyond. I had a bicycle accident which resulted in a deep cut on my face with a number of small glass shards deep in the wound. This occured shortly before my wedding. I felt that Dr Karim gave me a clear, honest and detailed assesment of the issues. He also did an excellent job stitching me up, taking care to leave minimal scarring ahead of my wedding photos (this seemed unlikely initially) I feel I was lucky to receive his care.
I always feel like I'm being listened to and being given full care and attention. I never feel rushed because I'm given time to speak and he always answers my questions with a smile. I never feel patronised or like my questions are stupid or irrelevant because he always give me his attention. Things like looking at me and making notes in response to what I'm saying. Never seeming distracted. I very quickly felt I could trust his judgment so even if it wasn't the answer I was expecting or wanted I believed his expertise and answer was honest and correct. He could explain and justify anything he said. The most important event from the first time I saw him was that he indulged my concerns with my pains and didn't pass off the responsibility to another expert I have to see. He dealt with me their and is even doing the follow up consultation, even though by rights he could make me see the other specialist. In short very, very, happy and fortunate that for a brief moment I have been in his care.
Never met such a nice careing doctor, made me feel at ease , can say on my first visit to Homerton hospital I was very impressed with the way I was treated.
He is a very interesting doctor. He knows how to relieve tension. He is also very professional.
It was a very productive and professional consultation. A thorough examination was carried out by Dr Kassam. He was polite and extremely patient and listened to my worries and reassured me completely. I think he is a fantastic consultant.
Dr Kassem makes the whole process of something rather anxious and daunting into something simple, clear and dare I say it...fun! He is very patient and doesn’t make you feel like you’re taking up his time. He explains things very clearly and brings a warm human touch to the whole process. I do hope I am treated by him again.
Extremely easy going, although I felt a lot nervous he managed to keep my mind elsewhere and talked about other stuff. First time I had surgery in general so I am beyond pleased that I had such a pleasant, careful and professional help.
Knowledgeable, helpful and easy to understand
Lovely doctor and the whole team. Very professional. They tried their best to make me feel relaxed during the surgery. I got to choose my playlist, which made me feel really good. I highly recommend Dr Karim Kassam.
Took time to explain the condition and the options available to us. Happy to answer questions and very friendly.
Very happy with the care I received from Dr Kassam. The surgical procedure was carried out efficiently and with helpful and informative responses to the minor complications that arose.
I did not come to the Hospital expecting to meet Dr Kassam. He was called in to offer an opinion. I felt that he was confident, knowledgeable, and humble; he really listened and discussed some options with me. I would be happy to see him again.
Kind, put me at ease as l was very nervous. Good bedside manner which is very important. Nurses lovely too.
I was very please with Dr. Karim because he was respectful and very honest.
Well spoken and very patient
Dr Gillan was very good,explain very clear what will happened, I was happy for the first time in homerton hospital.
Dr Kassam was the epitome of good manners. He was patient and listened to my concerns. He was helpful and made a very quick diagnosis of my issues. He was very personable & made my wife & I feel comfortable. It was a pleasure to meet him.
Very thorough and knowledgeable. Felt in very safe hands.
Dr Karim was very, very helpful, I understood everything that was said and he would help me with anything I never understood with no hesitation. I’m so glad I found someone who can help me possibly solve my TMJ problem!
