What My Patients Say
...I was assigned to the surgeon Mr Farid and his team. ... He sent me for that CT scan just to be sure. So thank you, Dr Schuman. Along with Farid and his team, I owe you my life...
The Sunday Times, July 21 2019
Shakil Farid was very clear about the procedure and its risks beforehand. I had been waiting a long time and he had been appointed to catch up with the backlog and he was very accommodating to my need to have the very delayed op in June rather than late May. After the op Mr Farid was both informative and reassuring in the post op briefing. At the six-week follow-up appointment he checked thoroughly that I was following the recommended recovery regime and informed me of subsequent check-ups by colleagues. Throughout he was positive with excellent inter-personal skills.
I cannot thank Mr Farid enough for his work which has changed my life.
Wonderfully explained the procedure, support and aftercare for my Heart Bypass Operation. The whole team of medic staff were execellent in providing the care and support before, during and after the surgery. In particular, Mr S Farid was exceptionally helpful in all questions/queries raised and put my mind at ease. Highly recommend the doctor and his team.
THE TREATMENT JOHN MY HUSBAND RECEIVED WAS EXCELLENT!
