No appointment was booked when I arrived at the hospital...and the Secretary was no help at all. We even called that morning to confirm before travelling but the Secretary kept saying there was a problem with the diary. Very distressing! Totally unacceptable!

Mr Abdullah Jibawi

I am so sorry to hear of this issue with your appointment. I am looking into this personally to ensure this doesn't happen again, as we aim to always ensure that our patients have the best experience possible. I am sorry that this did not happen on this occasion. Thank your feedback and please do not hesitate to get in touch with my team if there is anything else we can help with.

Thorough, personable, professional and so knowledgeable. Diagnosis 1/2 done immediately with plan in place for 2/2. After many, many years of problems he diagnosed and made a plan for me in 30 minutes. It is amazing what seeing a true specialist can do and I feel relieved knowing I’m not just being “silly” or imagining things. Thank you!

Mr Abdullah Jibawi

Thank you for your kind comments. I am so glad to be able to put all years of experience behind finding out the very root cause of your problem. Half of this was the careful listening I learnt to do, and certainly your ability to describe your complaint clearly, knowing that someone is actively listening to you. It is a pleasure to take care of you anytime.

A charming man who has completely sorted out my varicose veins. I am delighted with the results and would highly recommend Mr Jibawi.

Mr Abdullah Jibawi

Thank you ever so much for trusting me in treating your varicose veins. I am glad you have had very good experience during this period; and that's not only due to me but also to the great team out there in theatre and the wards as well. It was a great pleasure to take care of you. Many thanks.

I was very impressed with the results of my surgery; I had a clear explanation about the procedure before and had an expectation of some pain following the surgery. However my post surgery pain was not anywhere near the level I expected, more uncomfortable than painful. I also expected, after varicose veins surgery, that I would have difficulty in walking however the same day of the surgery I was able to walk comfortably.

Mr Abdullah Jibawi

Thank you for your kind comments. So glad you had an outcome that satisfies your expectations, both physiologically and cosmetically. Remember always to take care when you walk or stand up for long, and to use good stockings to protect your legs further. Many thanks

From start to finish,Dr. Jibawi was very helpful, explained the procedure thoroughly, and was always very helpful. The operation by Dr. Jibawi went well and I always felt that I was in very good hands. The aftercare was very good too. Met Dr. Jibawi after a few weeks, when he did the checks and reassured me again that all was going to plan. I was really impressed and would highly recommend DR. Jibawi to my friends and family

Outstanding. Mr Jibawi is extremely knowledgeable and very approachable. Initial consultation put me completely at ease, and the operation could not have gone better in any way. The follow up appointment was very re-assuring. Could not recommend highly enough.

Mr Jibawi has given excellent care to my son, going to great lengths to ensure nothing has been missed, before making a diagnosis. Taking the time also, to keep him informed of latest test results as quickly as possible, which helped to alleviate some of the stress & worry. Mr Jibawi & his team will continue to monitor him every 6-12 months and for that we are extremely grateful.

I recently had treatment on both legs for varicose veins, via Radiofrequency Ablation (VNUS closure). My experience was excellent and virtually pain free. Consultations were prompt, efficient and I never felt rushed. Mr Jibawi is extremely professional, courteous and kind. I then had a ThermaVein treatment for thread veins on my foot. This technology is really impressive giving instant results. In summary, the entire patient experience has been very positive and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Jibawi to anyone.
