I have just received my final 5th year check up and the 'All Clear'. It was five years ago when Mr Omer Karim operated to remove my prostate cancer. The care and attention Mr Karim and his team gave through the whole process was absolutely outstanding. If you find yourself in the position I was 5 years ago, then do not hesitate to put your trust in the skills and care Mr Omer Karim can provide. Words alone cannot express the thanks and appreciation I feel, I thank you sir from the bottom of my heart.
