I was referred to Mr Samsudin by a consultant urologist in Lancaster with severe prostatic obstruction. I was first assessed in his OP and then listed for a Uro-lift procedure under local anaesthetic and have since attended for review. Mr Samsudin, from the very beginning, has been most kind and courteous, immediately putting me at my ease. He has that rare quality of seeming to have all the time in the world to address the patient’s concerns despite his full waiting room outside, explaining everything thoroughly. He listens carefully, giving ample time for questions to which he responds comprehensively.
The Uro-lift procedure under LA was carried out most efficiently. It was clear that he is respected and well liked by both colleagues and staff; there was an excellent team spirit. I am delighted with the result. My symptoms are hugely improved.
Mr Samsudin has conducted himself to the highest professional standards and I am most grateful for his help.
He’s given me a life back as previous to his bladder treatment I was living around a bathroom, due to my overactive bladder and my multiple sclerosis combined. He’s very good and cares about you and follows up on his treatment to make sure it is working. I live in the USA but I will always get a flight over to see him and have any additional treatment. No need to look for another consultant as he is the best and I’ve been under a lot of consultants over the world, he’s made me so happy.
Lovely doctor, really put me at ease and regarding the treatment I had in my bladder I highly recommend this to anyone with sensitive bladder. I went from waking up for the toilet 3-4 times a night to once and even sometimes none. It has dramatically changed my life and I glad I went through with this. Thankyou
Mr Samsudin was very polite and informative and the procedure went without any issues. Initially he put my mind at rest and provided me with all the options.
Mr Samsudin offered excellent treatment to myself. He put me at ease throughout the procedure and did a brilliant job! I couldn’t be more satisfied with the overall outcome :)
Thank you again!
I found Mr Samsudin to be polite and extremely professional. 5 star rating all day long, thank you for looking after me!
My experience under the care of Mr Samsudin was excellent , his bedside manner put me at ease and went into my surgery with confidence .
A highly skilled surgeon , and a great guy..
Mr Samsudin guided me through the TURP procedure - pre-op consultancy, the procedure itself, and post-op care with great skill and care. He inspired confidence from the outset and the surgery has proved most beneficial. At all stages, he explained the options and frankly advised on benefits and risks. His post-op care and advice has been helpful and reassuring. To the extent than any of this sort of experience can be good, Mr Samsudin made it as good as it could be. Highly recommended.
Really solved my problem of constantly getting up at night to go to the toilet. First class advice !
Mr A Samsudin took over when my previous consultant Mr R Ewing retired five years ago. My consultations were for post-operative prostate monitoring, I found Mr Samsudin informed, pleasant, polite and reassuring.
I find mr samsudin to be very honest and informative when discussing my condition, both in diognosis ,procedures and possible treatments.he listens and takes on board your opinions and concerns and is never patronising which is not true of all doctors i have dealt with.its doctors like mr samsudin who make our nhs priceless
I was always seen on time, treated with courtesy by all staff, and dignity during all investigations. Always reassured and kept informed of the reasons for each stage of my treatment.
I have been seen by Doctor Samsudin on several occasions now and find him very polite, professional and puts you at ease which is important as a patient. Well deserving of a 5 star rating.
I am very happy with Dr. Samsudin. He has explained thoroughly to me about my condition and the next steps to improve things for me.
He is very helpful too.
Mr Azi Samsudin is, in my opinion, a first class urological surgeon and a gentleman. He is sympathetic and understanding of the personal nature of urological examinations and treatment. He puts you totally at ease, ensures you fully understand the issues and implications of the diagnosis and any treatment, and makes you feel like you are the most important person to be considered. He puts you at ease and is careful - even in a busy hospital ward scenario - to protect your dignity and confidentiality. I would recommend him at any time.
I have met with Mr Samsudin on several occasions, and have always found him to be courteous and friendly. His manner is very calming, and I feel very comfortable in his presence. He is always more than happy to answer any questions I may have regarding my course of treatment and I trust his advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who is experiencing the same condition as I have.
The treatment I received from Mr Samsudin was excellent and resolved a long standing problem,for which I am very grateful.
The Doctor was very considerate and efficient. He took time to explain what my treatment was going to be and how it would help him make a diagnosis. I had several examinations to help rule out certain illnesses and this put my mind at ease. All my appointments were on time and there was no waiting around. It was a positive experience all round and I would recommend this Doctor to anyone.
Excellent. Can't rate Mr samsudin enough. Would definitely recommend. Very friendly and polite. Very pleased with the procedures I have with him.
At my first consultation with Mr Samsudin I was immediately made to feel at ease by his personable, friendly, kind and considerate nature. I have subsequently undergone three procedures to date under Mr Samsudin’s care to diagnose and treat a large bladder tumour. On each occasion, Mr Samsudin was extremely thorough and took all the time with my wife and I that we needed to fully understand the clinical findings, the recommended procedures I was facing, the risks involved and the likely outcomes and next steps of my treatment. Mr Samsudin was incredibly caring and sympathetic towards us and helped us through a very emotional number of weeks when I was first diagnosed. The surgery performed by Mr Samsudin has resulted in successful resection of my bladder and the biopsy histology results have shown no evidence of any remaining cancer. While in hospital for the operations performed by Mr Samsudin and his support, I felt confident that I was in the very best hands. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Samsudin for his engaging personality, experience in his field and his incredible surgery skills.
Needing to see a urologist urgently I was offered an appointment with Mr Samsudin. This name was not familiar. He was very professional but with a very easy manner. I would be more than happy to recommend this consultant either on a private or nhs referral.
Mr Samsudin was very informative about where the stones were, showed me via x ray and explained about treatment options clearly. He also gave me advice about how to avoid stones growing and asked any questions I had regarding stone formation and how to prevent it. Dr Samsudin then proceeded to give me a health and diet sheet to take away in order for me to be able to change my diet to avoid further stones being produced - something I am very concerned about. I went away feeling confident and reassured.
Mr Samsudin provided personable and exemplary professional conduct throughout my treatment and aftercare. I could not have asked for more.
Mr Samsudin assisted me in the arrangement of an MRI which was needed to assess my condition. Working overseas and having limited time in the U.K. due to my travel arrangements he personally arranged the scan and noticed the radiologist of my needs and requirements, making user that I received the treatment I needed. In the follow up consultation with him he ex-aligned everything clearly to me, giving me the ability to make an informed choice for my future needs. I would describe him as highly professional, caring, empathetic and a credit to the medical profession. He answeed all of the questions I had, leaving me feeling confident in his ability and the service provided by the medical team involved. His offer to assist me when I return and for ongoing contact should I have any concerns was of great comfort to me. A true professional who it as a pleasure to have as a consultant.
I have had a patient/consultant relationship with Mr Azi Samsudin for approximately three years and during that time he has carried out several procedures culminating in a TURP procedure in the early part of this year. I find him totally approachable and completely professional in all his dealing with me and I would have no hesitation in placing my trust in him should I require further medical attention in the future.
As a privately insured patient, I feel that I have had extremely good care and advice. He comes with my recommendation.
I have been seeing Mr Azi Samsudin for two years in March 2017 he carried out a Urolift which has had positive results but because I have a third lobe which extends beyond the bladder neck it has not provided a total solution, he originally suggested before and recently that I should have TURP in order to resolve the third lobe problem but based on information from people I know that have had this I do not want this procedure.
Whilst medical statistics show that TURP has few side effects based on discussions between consultant and patient it is likely that male patients will not fully disclose the total outcome of this operation and the impact on their quality of life due to their inhibitions and lack of want to challenge a professional consultant (doctors always right syndrome).
I would suggest that being able to listen and understand a patients concern is key to a successful resolution of a medical problem.
The tests, advice and processes undertaken on me by Mr Azi Samsudin have been carried out in a professional manner and I am satisfied with the results obtained.
He is courteous and always welcoming when I attend clinic. I would recommend Mr Azi Samsudin for Urology investigations and procedures
I have found Mr Samsudin has a warm and friendly manner, with a clear logical approach which inspires confidence.
I found him polite informative and thorough. My stone was removed painlessly and my diagnosis accurate. I would recommend Mr Azi Samsudin.
Dr Samsudin was very professional and put my mind at ease
Nothing but praise for Mr Samsudin and his team who brought me back from the clutches of the Grim Reaper when I suffered a catastrophic kidney failure that reduced my GFR to 6. He and the whole of the NHS team accurately diagnosed my problem and addressed it, keeping me informed throughout the emergency surgery which took place at mid-night, with an alternative back-up surgical team on standby at a nearby Hospital should that be needed. In the event, it wasn't needed. Top man for me ! But then, under the circumstances, I'm probably not a terribly objective patient/Reviewer - or am I ??!
I met Mr Samsudin on the 23rd August 2016, I been diagnosed with cancer of my right kidney, with thrombosis of the right renal vein, IVC and hepatic veins,as you can imagine I was in shock ,very frightened and anxious as to whether I could be treated,Mr Samsudin was extremely kind ,very professional as he guided me through my journey .He was very proactive in putting my case forward for me to have surgery. Mr Samsudin rang me many times with up dates re MDT meetings and keeping me in a positive frame of mind that something could be done to help me. I will always be grateful to him.I had my operation on the 13th October 2016 in Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital,Liverpool.I am having 12monthly scans,and enjoying my life,with family and friends,thanks to the dedicated people who have and are still looking after me.
The treatment that I received has been excellent. It was a big improvement compared to the last time I had to have kidney stones removed. I'm very happy with Mr Samsudin.
Very happy with my visit today. Mr Samsudin suggested a mini operation which he hopes will alleviate the discomfort & problems I have been having recently. He was helpful, friendly & sympathetic to my needs.
Dr Samsudin put me at ease and reassured me with the concerns I had both before and after my operation, I was well informed of the procedures he undertook. Should I have similar ailments in the future I hope Dr Samsudin would be there to preform them.
Following my visit and procedure today at St Helens Hospital I can't praise you and your nursing staff highly enough....Your manner and patience whilst answering my queries was above expectation and I felt safe and secure under your care as you made me feel at ease and I couldn't have had a more pleasurable experience..thank you Mr Samsudin and please pass my thanks to the nursing staff.
Dr Samsudin professional and thorough approach during investigation into my suitability for a urolift operation ( to relieve enlarged prostrate issues) led to early identification of prostrate cancer for ongoing monitoring.
He progressed each stage and its finding efficiently and speedily, with good and clear explanation and maner.
Good, upon arrival sent me to x-Ray, back in and was told all was good. Pleasant experience.
Mr Samsudin was very professional and explained the procedure and possible outcomes. Everything went very well and I am totally satisfied with the results and aftercare.I would recommend him to anybody with similar problems.
mr Samsudin is a very understanding and charming person. He made me feel very comfortable on my appointment dates and has been able to solve my urinary problem. I can't speak more highly of him and would recommend him to anyone needing a urologist.
I was put at my ease from first entering the consulting room. Felt very happy with how procedure was conducted and post procedure examinations. Would recommend consultant to anyone
He was very thorough and professional
I was impressed with Mr Samsudin's attentive nature to my issue, and the urgency in which he dealt with my issue, followed by the helpful advice to manage it.
I arrived on time for my appointment, after only a few minutes wait I was called in. Mr Samsudin greeted me and introduced me to the radiologist who was also in the room. Mr Samsudin immediately put me at ease and at all times in the examination explained every step of what he was doing. The examination complete I was advised of the treatment options and also allowed to mention a further problem which he treated for me. I would recommend Mr Samsudin to anyone.
From my first appointment to my operation to my follow up appointments and 1 in between I have nothing but praise for dr samsudin.My operation was a total success and would definitely recommend him.A thoroughly decent chap aswell.
From the first meeting with Mr. Samsudin he explained the situation and put my mind at rest. He offered all the options to me before making a decision on my preferred treatment. I opted for the urolift which was done as a day patient. Everything went well. Since then I have noticed a remarkable improvement straight away therefore would highly recommend this procedure.
A very very nice fella, who talks to you in simple terms so you understand what's going to be done and why. My surgery has gone perfectly and given me a new lease of life and I would recommend Mr Samsudin to anyone who is considering prostate surgery. Thank you again.
Excellent care, everything ran very smoothly, overall very pleased
From my first meeting with Mr Samsudin, he was open honest and very easy to talk to, he explained my options and listened to my comments. Treatment was first class and very considered. I feel Mr Samsudin really looked after me throughout my treatment, and I am now happy to say I am back to feeling like my old self, which is marvellous, I would recommend Mr Samsudin to anyone without a second thought.
I have recently seen Mr Samsudin regarding having a Vasectomy. The consultation was organised quickly and was handled extremely professionally, giving me a lot of information about the procedure outlining to pros and cons. Mr Samsudin very much put my mind at ease, as it wasn't something a I was particularly looking forward to. I decided it was what I wanted to do and again booking in for the procedure was extremely quick and all the information was again provided. On the day of the procedure Mr Samsudin and the Nurses were extremely professional making sure I was relaxed and understood everything. The procedure was over and done with quickly with very little pain. After care has been second to none, with Mr Samsudin really showing he cares for his patients. Overall the experience has been much better than expected and I would highly recommend Mr Samsudin for anyone looking to see a Urologist.
Over several years I have had 3 cystoscopies. The third was conducted by Mr Samsudin at The Spire Hospital Warrington. Making comparisons to my previous 2 experiences I am able to say without any doubt, Mr Samsudin and his team provided the best procedure. Being relatively pain free and only I only suffered minor discomfort following the procedure. Mr Samsudin was reassuring and made me feel comfortable and put me at ease. I have nothing but praise for Mr Samsudin and his team.
Throughout my time as a patient of Mr Samsudin, I found him to be professional, approachable, informative and reassuring. He has a pleasant disposition, and an excellent "bed-side manner". His approach to my condition was extremely thorough, arranging and ensuring that all relevant tests and procedures, were made available to me.
The subsequent operation, carried out personally by Mr Samsudin, has been an out and out success, for me the whole experience being far less traumatic, as I constantly felt that was in "safe hands". He is clearly held in high regard by his staff and all those that I came into contact with during my various appointments and examinations.
In conclusion I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Samsudin, and his teams at both Whiston and St Helen's hospitals to anyone and everyone.
Brilliant give my live back again thank you doctor
After suffering with kidney stones for a number of years, I was placed under the care of Mr Samsudin. After sorting out the kidney stones and still having symptoms, Mr Samsudin made sure I was seen by the correct department which in turn saved me from stage three bladder cancer.
Couldn't recommend Mr Samsudin enough. Extremely thourough consultant, who's care is second to none.
