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.
He is a very interesting doctor. He knows how to relieve tension. He is also very professional.
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!
