A very kind, empathetic doctor who was genially concerned with my injury. Explained in layman terms what was the cause, what was the treatment and what I could expect long term. Coupled with the excellent service from the Spire Hospital, I would not hesitate in recommending Mr. Shafafy.

After previously seeing a couple of consultants without success prior to meeting Mr Shafay, I was joyed when he successfully diagnosed my condition where others had failed. His diagnosis has led to my condition being successfully treated and I thoroughly recommend his approach. From the initial consultation he has explained things very clearly and given me confidence in following his full advice.
