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!

Dr Kassam is a very kind a personable consultant. I was kindly put in his care when the lovely Mr Chen was going on leave. I had had a nasty infection in my tooth and gum and my jaw had locked, Dr Kassam understood my concerns of infection risk and had me admitted as an emergency within 4 days and the surgery to remove tooth and resedule infection was as promised carried out the very day after my admission. DR Kassam came to see me himself and talked me through the surgery and what to expect after. He also visited me in recovery to check on my progress. Dr Kassam has the extraordinary ability to remember his patients on sight and is a very humble and caring surgeon. UCH who I had gone to in the first place treated me very badly but Thanks to the good care and great Kindness of Dr Kassam and Dr Cheng and their wonderful staff in Max Fax I have made a full recovery. Dr Kassam and the team working with him are an absolute jewel in the Crown of Hommerton. I can never thank you Mr Kassam and your. Wonderful team enough. THANK YOU AND God Bless you all.

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!
