I participated in a research follow up 3 years after vein surgery. Dr Omar Abu Bakr performed a thorough review assessment, which went well. I was delighted to hear that my remaining veins are working well and that the procedures performed by Professor Whiteley in 2016 have been a longterm success. Most of all Dr Omar was outstanding with regard to answering my question and addressing any concerns. In short I learned a lot from a highly personable, skilled and knowledgeable surgeon and was very glad that I made the effort to attend. As per previous experiences the Whiteley Clinic staff that I encountered were superb.

Mr Omar Abu-Bakr

Thank you very much for your very kind review and I am really glad that your results are excellent and that you had a great experience at our clinic... Phlebology is a science and an art that we master, and enjoy while practising it... Thank you again and wish you all the best, Omar

Very reassuring about treatment

Mr Omar Abu-Bakr

The beauty about varicose veins treatment (and Phlebology in general) is that it is a combination between science and art. So, as a doctor, it is not enough to have good medical results but you must have good aesthetic results as well. So, in other words, if you respect the indications we give you will, for sure, get the promised results. Thank you very much fpr your kind review and wish you all the best, Omar
