Mr Asif Raza

MBChB, FRCS, FRCS(Urol), FEBU

Consultant Urologist

I was in tremendous pain and went to my local A&E. After a CT scan it was confirmed that I had a kidney stone. Mr Raza reviewed me urgently and arranged for my operation as a matter of urgency as he could see how much pain I was in. The morning of the operation Mr Raza explained what the operation involved and put my mind at total ease. Following the operation I was pain free and was surprised at how quickly I was up and about. The aftercare has been absolutely fantastic, very thorough and lots of advice on how to avoid getting stones in the future. My whole experience was very professionally handled and my treatment arranged promptly. So to Mr Raza and his team, very many thanks. I could not have wished for a better doctor and will be eternally grateful.
