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.

My experience with Mr Jibawi was extremely positive. Right from the first engagement I felt at ease with his style and clear expertise. Advice and preparation was very clear. The procedure on the day was excellent and the post operation care well advised. I highly recommend Mr Jibawi

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.

Dr Jibawi has a wonderful reassuring approach, he explained fully and answered all my questions. My varicose veins' op went perfectly. I did not experience any pain at all post op. I was walking normally next day. The wounds headed quickly. My leg feels much lighter and I have no pain driving. I am very pleqsed I had the op. I had minimal discomfort throughout which I attribute to Dr Jibawi's expertise.

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.
