Dr Attar is an amazing doctor. I was admitted for my first kidney stone at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and was so grateful that he was my doctor. He was very professional, he reassured me and explained to me the process to remove the stone. He did everything he could to proceed with a CT scan and a procedure to remove the stone and then the stent as quickly as possible so I could go on holiday with my family without worrying about anything. He was also very caring and attentive about how I was feeling before and after the procedure and was following up to find out how I was which made me feel very safe about being under his care. I could not thank Dr Attar and his team enough for their professionalism, clear communication, amazing care and kindness. I would highly recommend Dr Attar. THANK YOU! Dr Attar est un docteur incroyable. J’ai été admise à l’hôpital Chelsea et Westminster pour un calcul rénal pour la premiere fois. Dr Attar a été très professionnel, il m'a rassuré et m'a expliqué le processus pour enlever le calcul car j'étais assez anxieuse. Il a tout fait pour me consulter et m'opérer rapidement afin que je puisse partir en vacances avec ma famille sans aucun soucis ni stress. Il était également très attentionné et s'est préoccupé de mon état avant et après la procedure ce qui m'a beaucoup rassure. J'en suis très reconnaissante. Je ne saurais remercier le Dr Attar et son équipe pour leur professionnalisme, leur attention, et leur gentillesse. Je le recommande vivement. MERCI!

I have suffered from kidney stones for the first in my life and it was quite a big issue because the stone was big and stuck in the narrowest part of the ureter and this was making the kidney struggling in passing urine. Since the first contact with Mr Attar PA to arrange the necessary visits, throughout all the passages - in the surgery theater and at home between the two procedures I underwent - I have always felt in experienced and professional hands, aware of the various options in order to make the proper decisions and treated with great care. Thanks a lot!

Mr Attar took on my case when I was rushed in with Sepsis. He was unhurried, calm and confident when listening to me, which I found very reassuring at a distressing time. He made the effort to see me every day whilst I was under his care in hospital. I was greatly encouraged by his team of trusted nurses - they embodied the same high standards, patient respect and care - which made what was a harrowing experience as comfortable as could be. He was always accessible by phone. And his contact list of medical experts was second to none, as I was thoroughly and rapidly checked by his colleagues - also leading professionals - to rule out other complications. I found Mr Attar to be genuine, caring and highly diligent.

Dr Attar a fost minunat având grija de mine in decursul sejurului la Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. Am venit pe genunchi prin Emergenta cu pietre la rărunchi si o infecție complicata si m-am întors acasă simțindu-mă voios si foarte bine cu energie să-mi trăiesc din plin viața din nou. Nu pot sa multimesc cu adevărat destul Dr Attar si echipa lui din Urologie pentru grija autentica de pacienți si Dedicația profesională. Dr Attar was simply amazing in taking care of me throughout my quite long stay at the Chelsea & Westminster hospital. I arrived crawling though A&E with a complicated infection and kidney stones and left the hospital feeling confident and well to get back to live life fully. I cannot express enough gratitude to Mr Attar and his team in urology for their authentic care and dedication.

More than satisfied with Mr Attar, he is a wonderful, kind, compassionate gentleman. He was recommended to me by consultant urologists at both Royal Free and Clementine Churchill hospital. I felt completely confident before and after my operation as he reassured me of the procedure and explained the treatment plan. To feel so at ease is a blessing. He did a procedures for kidney stones for me following endless UTIs and being very ill. Mr Attar checked on my situation and recovery both as an inpatient and outpatient. He genuinely cares for his patient's care and was accessible by phone and email throughout my care. I would highly recommend him.

I cannot praise enough Mr Attar for his professional and ethical approach. I had an enlarged prostate that needed surgery. Being a surgeon restricted my available slots for surgery and post op recovery. I therefore opted for the Princess Grace Hospital instead of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital that was offered. Mr Attar was very caring and attentive. He explained the procedure and reassured me. His explanations gave me a feeling of “being looked after “. The whole experience was seamless and my surgery a success. I will most certainly recommend Mr Attar.

Following the finding during a dipstick test of a small trace of (non-visible) blood in my urine, my GP recommended an immediate referral to a Consultant Urologist for tests (nonchalantly referees to by my GP as a ‘Cancer Referral’). I was of course worried at what had been discovered and set about trying to find a specialist with immediate availability. There were a number of specialists (identified through the Wellington) with the ability to see me within 24 hours, but most of their secretaries said that they wouldn’t be able to conduct the actual scans / tests (and a cystoscopy) for a week or so. Mr Attar was able to see me urgently and would, I was told, do everything possible to ensure scans / tests could be conducted swiftly. Based on the glowing reviews online for Mr Attar’s services, I decided to book the 6pm appointment with him. He advised that I needed both a Cystoscopy and ultrasound. He made no promises, but in view of how worried I was, he said he’d try and see if they could be arranged for the following morning. He took my number and, the following morning, I received a call first thing and was asked to travel to the hospital ASAP. I had the procedure and scan that morning and felt that Mr Attar was calm and reassuring throughout. Thankfully, all was fine. However, Mr Attar’s service, his desire to put me at ease, his reassurance and his advice, were absolutely first rate. I’d highly recommend him as a personable, knowledgable expert in whom I quickly had complete trust. I’m very grateful for the effort he put into ensuring my diagnosis was dealt with extremely quickly (I had a nervous 36 hours, rather than a nervous 2 weeks) so that my mind could be put at ease. I highly recommend engaging his services should anyone require a consultant urologist.

I am very thankful that somehow I ended up in the care of Mr Attar. I feel incredibly lucky, that when my rather complicated kidney stone arrived and I crawled into the A&E of Chelsea and Westminster, it was Mr Attar in attendance. I was concerned about having an operation of any kind but he was thorough and professional and I felt very comfortable throughout. It is clear that he genuinely cares about his patients and that they are comfortable during the experience they're going through. The team at Chelsea and Westminster were fantastic and looked after me very well, for the duration of my stay. Lisa Best in his office was also incredibly kind and helped me to rapidly continue follow-up treatment at the Princess Grace Hospital, which again was a very good experience. Mr Attar came to see me regularly and his communication was excellent, calling often to check on progress. He also indulged my interest in the procedures and took the time to explain in detail what would be happening. I have much enjoyed our conversations and I am very thankful for all he has done for me. I could not recommend enough.

I can hardly put my gratitude to Mr Attar properly into words. I was admitted to hospital experiencing indescribable pain and his kindness, thoughtfulness, professionalism (in what could have been really horribly undignified) has left me feeling nothing more than incredibly fortunate in being treated by him. Apart from his extremely high qualifications it is his humanity, humour and warmth that single him out as a truly unique doctor.

What more can I say about Doctor Attar which has not been said before. This doctor is truly a God send. This was the first time I have ever had a urological procedure and Dr.Attar was very approachable, kind and attentive to my issues and concerns. He introduced himself with such warmth, that he instantly put me into a sense of ease and comfort that made me feel I was in such good hands. He explained the procedure to me in a clear and thoughtful manner and I felt that any issues or concerns that I had, I could easily speak to him about them. The procedure was carried out very professionally and flawlessly and his post-operative care and bedside manner was impeccable. He may be a high ranking Consultant but he always has time for his patients and he always makes sure that he checks to see how were are doing after any procedure, before we are allowed to leave the hospital no matter how busy he is. I hope Chelsea and Westminster really does recognise the work that this man does for his patients and realise how much he is valued and appreciated.

Dr Hama Attar is a true expert and highly professional in his field. He listened to my consent when I was addmited, evaluated my history and all my CT scans with through care. In fact his upmost care and attention identified another stone which was not identified previously and by including the procedures he saved me a revisit for another procedure which I am truly thankful to him. I truly recommend Mr Attar to anyone who is seeking a great service from a very respectful and highly knowledgeable sergent. I could not have asked for a better Sergent. الدكتور عطار متخصص و متفهم جيدأ في عمله و مستمع جيدللمريض انه كان يستمع لمرضي و شكواي بالتأني و الصبر و حضر إلى غرفتي بعد العملية مباشرة ليطمئن علي و يشرح لي كيفية الإجراءات الأزمة بعد العملية علاوة على ذلك قد حضر لرؤيتي في الصباح التالي ليطمئن اكثر و اود ان اذكر بان ذلك كان في غير وقت دوامه الرسمي بالمستشفى إذ يبين لشيء هذا العمل، إنما يبين على صدق خلوصه و تفانيه للعمل و ان شاءالله يكون قدوة لزملاءه الآخرين ليقتدون به مع تحياتي

My experience with Mr Attar was impressive from beginning to end. He was polite and courteous at the initial consultation, making me relaxed and comfortable with a potentially awkward and sensitive procedure. We encountered a potential problem / delay on the day of the procedure which Mr Attar resolved decisively, making an informed decision on my behalf which enabled the operation to proceed. Successful procedure, good advice for recovery and a considerate follow up call. My 6 week check up was a formality and a further pleasant experience. I am seriously impressed at his level of care and professionalism. Frankly, I had been dreading the procedure -thanks to the level of care received it became almost enjoyable.

The manner in which ‘bad news’ is delivered greatly influences our reaction to it. This is particularly true when the subject is our health – in most cases ‘the news’ is read by someone we hardly know. From our first meeting Dr Attar has treated me with professionalism and sensitivity - a combination that invited and very quickly gained, my trust. An accomplished surgeon, he is truly patient-focused. He communicates well, gives willingly of his time to relieve concerns, delivers a clear prognosis and has an exceptional team. I trust him as my Doctor, like him as a person and would recommend him to anyone.

I was treated for kidney stones by Mr Attar as an NHS patient at Chelsea & Westminster and also as a private patient at Chelsea Oupatient Centre, Princess Grace and the Lister Hospital. He performed 2 separate ureteroscopy operations to remove a large kidney stone under general anaesthetic as well as a cystoscopy with a local anaesthetic to remove the stent. For my final procedure he and his secretary Val put a lot of effort into fitting me in at short notice at the Lister hospital despite his very busy schedule. I have found him to be very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and caring and on every occasion he took the time to explain everything to me both pre and post op. He also took the trouble to call me and email me several times to check on my recovery and was happy for me to contact him at any time for help or advice which was very reassuring.

I can only give the highest praise to the treatment I received from Mr. Attar as an NHS patient at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, when he removed a staghorn kidney stone in my left kidney. This needed three procedures in all, under general anesthetic. Mr. Attar explained to me beforehand exactly what would happen, he listened to my concerns, answered all my anxious inquiries with great patience. From the start he established an excellent personal relationship and I felt absolute confidence in him throughout. I should add that I also have the highest regard for all the staff at the C&W all of whom treated me with great care and courtesy. Altogether I found it a very positive experience.

I have been a private as well as NHS patient of Mr Attar at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. I have always felt confident and relaxed during our consultations, surgical intervention and the follow-up check ups. When, because of time constraint, I was offered the service of another consultant I chose not to do so. Mr Attar is a very pleasant person who communicates easily, with a smile and makes the patient very relaxed and confident.

I met Mr. Attar as I was accompanying a patient from Ethiopia back in November 2017. She was a young girl who suffered from a years of kidney issues and did not speak English. Being from a world the medical industry is poor, I had expectations that the industry would be much better and doctors will be well informed but I did not expect as much as Mr. Attar was. He exceeded my expectation. He was very humble, friendly, very well knew what he was doing, made us comfortable and welcomed, made his language so easy to a point the patient started understanding what he was saying through the weeks and most importantly he listened. During surgery, he was generous enough to arrange a nurse from Ethiopia so the patient was well taken care of in her language. He made the surgery easy and successful. He made sure he answered every question and kept following up once we got back home. I am very grateful for the care, support and professionalism he showed and recommend him for anyone from any part of the world.

Mr Attars decisions, operations and procedures were faultless, I could not have had better care. The aftercare is just as thorough, Mr Attar is easily contactable if you have any concerns at all.

I am writing this review as a carer for my daughter who was under Mr. Attar's care. She was diagnosed with kidney stones two years ago and came into Mr. Attar's care a year ago. She has undergone several procedures at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, including a PCNL and a Ureteroscopy. I am a Anaesthetist nurse myself and I work in the maternity section in my hometown in Romania. I had come to London specifically to look after my daughter. While I have a basic understanding of the procedures she had undergone and I am familiar with how a hospital operates, it was very important for me to understand exactly what will happen before, during and after the procedures she has had. My english is good but not great. I relied heavily on Mr. Attar to explain everything to me. He is not only an exceptional medical professional but also a kind and patient man. He went through all the details with me as soon as he was out of the operating theatre. He took the time (out of his very busy schedule I am sure) to sit down with me and he did everything he could to reassure me and get me to understand everything. He has also exchanged e-mail addresses with my daughter and encouraged her to be in touch should she need to. I think this is a clear example of a doctor who truly cares for the well being of their patients and will go above and beyond to ensure this. Today I fly home and I leave with the certainty that my daughter is looked after properly. I can rest assured that she is recovering and will be healthy and happy again very soon. I can't thank Mr Attar enough for all that he has done for us, for putting up with my (very many) questions and for caring after my daughter's health.

If it were at all possible, I would add more stars to the above for I have nothing but the highest praise for Mr Attar. His care and attention, not only to medical details, but also to interaction with the patient is superb. Let me give you just one example of this: I was very unwell one night and in considerable pain, it must have been about 3 am in the morning. Lying in bed, and feeling very sorry for myself (justifiably I believe!) I decided I needed to let Mr Attar know how I felt so I sent him an email from my tablet. Mr Attar replied - within the hour (please note again time of night) had spoken to the night staff to sort things our, and was at my bedside very, very early in the morning. Quite exemplary in my opinion. Furthermore his continuing care has been faultless. I can say with all honesty, that having started as a patient I regard him now as a trusted physician and friend. PS I was both an NHS and a private patient - equally good care!

Mr. Attar is quite simply, a lifesaver. I came into Mr. Attar's care with a significantly large stone in my right kidney. It was a condition I had been diagnosed with 2 years ago and I had already had a number of treatments for it in Aberdeen (my previous home). These treatments included a PCNL and a few ureteroscopies. I also had a stent from my ureter to my bladder. So the first procedure he performed on me was a ureteroscopy to remove the stent. The procedure was quite straightforward however not without risks. One of the first things I appreciated about Mr. Attar was his patience, openness and honesty about the procedure he was about to perform and any potential risks. This really put my mind at ease because not only was I fully aware of what was going to happen to me, but also because I knew my consultant was aware of and well equipped to handle anything that could possibly go wrong. The next procedure he performed on me was a PCNL which is essentially keyhole surgery to try and remove the stone from the kidney. Again, I went into surgery fully confident that I was well looked after. I had no concerns of doubts about anything and I knew exactly what was going to happen to me while I was under anaesthetic as well as what my expected recovery will be like. The operation was success, the majority of the stone was cleared which is a fantastic result considering the size of stone I had. Aftercare was another area Mr. Attar excelled at. He came to see me twice a day while I was in the hospital, he would always give me a review of my results and how I was doing and explained the reasoning behind every single decision he made with regards to my treatment. Not to mention that he did so with a very positive attitude, which I believe also helped with my speedy recovery. In summary, I couldn't recommend Mr. Attar enough. Not only is he an excellent urologist but he is a kind man, who actually cares about the speedy recovery and well-being of his patients.

Without any question, Chelsea and Westminster hospital saved my life. Two or three years ago I was being admitted to hospital several times for a bladder infections, sometimes for up to nine days. As is the daily routine of the hospital, several teams of doctors and consultants visited me twice daily and nobody could get to the bottom of why this infection was so serious and kept returning. Two years ago, when I met my new consultant Mr Hama Attar at the hospital for the first time, I explained the problem to him and he immediately came up with a diagnosis and gave me some advice to follow, which no one had mentioned before. Really, deep down in my heart, I cannot thank this young consultant and his team enough. I have followed his advice over the past two years and the infection has not returned, I am healthier and have not had to return to the hospital for any bladder infections since. Deep down from my heart, I would like to thank this particularly clever doctor.
