Dr Karim Kassam made my experience at the BMI London Independent a very pleasant experience, I highly recommend and praise his approach and care he gave to me during my visit and treatment. The nurses and rest of the hospital staff were also very kind and provide really good care and treatment during my stay at the hospital. Overall, my surgery went well, big thank you to Dr Kassam and the rest of the BMI London Independent team!

Dr Kassam listened fully to my concerns and history, gave a thorough and understandable breakdown of his opinion and diagnosis and equipped me with the information I need to deal with the condition in the future. He answered all of my questions, communicated information to my GP while I was still there and despite clearly running an extremely busy clinic made me feel like I was his main concern throughout my consultation. The NHS really is a wonderful provision, for which I'm truly grateful!

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! Many thanks.

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.

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.
