Before the operation I was experiencing a great deal of discomfort for a majority of the day. It affected my general wellbeing and caused me to be reluctant to continue my usual activities, although hitherto I had enjoyed participating in family and other leisure pastimes.
I approached the hospital with great trepidation, but from the reception staff right through to the medical team including the anaesthetist, nurse and surgeon Mr Razvi I found everyone so kind and caring. This reassurance in turn gave me complete confidence and peace of mind. I can’t thank you and your staff enough. I find it very difficult to find the words to express my gratitude adequately and will happily recommend the Nuffield Hospital to family and friends.
I am very pleased with the treatment and care that I received at the Nuffield Brentwood Hospital. My consultant Mr Razvi was excellent. I am very happy with the care and consideration he showed me and the aftercare was superb. Thank you for helping me though a very difficult time.
I found Mr Razvi very approachable, pleasant and positive. He listened to my concerns with understanding. I am happy with both his care and the hospital’s care.
At a very upsetting time for my husband and myself, being informed I had cancer, we found Mr Razvi a very kind and calming influence. He explained every step of the procedure in a way which was very easy to understand and in a very positive manner. In fact, it has made coming to terms with cancer much easier for us and I am no longer terrified of the word.
My visits to Mr Razvi are now every four months and I have just had a CT scan with good results. I will continue these visits for five years after the operation and I am no longer frightened as it is just like visiting an old friend.
I felt well, but became aware that my tummy was becoming increasingly bloated. I found it difficult to bend down, making it very hard to put my shoes on or cut my toenails.
I went to my GP who arranged a CT scan which showed abnormalities. I arranged a consultation at the Wellesley Hospital where I had an MRI scan which showed a large cyst on my ovaries. Mr Razvi arranged for me to have an operation at the Nuffield in Brentwood where he removed, in his words “everything you don’t need, including you appendix”
The operation was a complete success, and was followed up with 6 sessions of chemotherapy.
No surgery required. Due to late diagnosis of parent, treatment and prognosis were limited. Tests schedule and results were clear, giving peace of mind. I have been happy with the care and appreciated the caring approach to all my concerns
I was experiencing an irregular menstrual cycle and tummy pain. My doctor referred me to Mr Razvi as she suspected that the pain may be due to a gynaecological cause.
I felt that Mr Razvi took the time to listen to my concerns and was very thorough in his questions and examination. During the examination and colposcopy Mr Razvi was gentle and reassuring.
I found him to be kind, knowledgeable and reassuring and had complete confidence in his skills.
I had excellent care. My family and I felt reassured by Mr Razvi and confident throughout my treatment. I made a speedy recovery and after just a month, I feel completely normal despite having had major surgery.I couldn’t have asked for better care, before, during and after!
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2000. My health is up and down due to this condition, and on top of this I have rheumatoid arthritis. I have had 2 C sections, a right hemicolectomy, and an ileo-colectomy. Having suffered with fistulas I am on 8 weekly infusions of the drug “Infliximab”. After an emergency admission for a partial bowel obstruction in August 2014, a dermoid cyst was picked up on an MRI scan and I was advised to seek advice from a gynaecologist.
I had an open salpingo-oophorectomy at Southend University Hospital. I would like to say that I am extremely happy with how things went. I would like to extend my thanks and gratefulness to Mr Khalil Razvi who from the moment I met him, put my mind at complete ease, as I am an extremely nervous patient having had some very unpleasant procedures.
Can I say that Khalil felt like a friend, not my surgeon!
Mr Razvi put my mind at rest. His manner was so relaxed that it helped me to put my full confidence in him. He is very experienced and excellent at what he does. I knew I was in the best hands.
Mr Razvi put my mind and fears to rest by being patient and answering any and every question I had.
I would definitely recommend Mr Razvi to anyone who is thinking of having surgery.
The care that I received from Mr Razvi was very good, and over the three years that I have been seeing you, we have built up a relationship based on trust. I feel very relaxed when seeing you and you always explain everything to me and put me at ease.
I have been having this treatment for a number of years, every 4 months. I am very happy with the results as it has saved me from having a hysterectomy. My life has not changed since I have had this treatment which shows how successful it is.
The hospital staff are always very welcoming and Mr Razvi makes me feel as much at ease as possible.
I would like to say thank you to Mr Razvi.
Removal of ovary:
I had a hysterectomy and cancerous cells were found on the womb, so I needed to have ovary removed to make sure the cancer hadn’t spread. I was in good health – no pain at all, and was able to carry on as normal.
I had keyhole surgery to remove the ovary, but needed to be cut in order to find the ovary. The results were good, and I felt happy that all was well and I was able to carry on with my life feeling confident.
I had very good care in the hospital, and was looked after well. I had a follow up appointment with Mr Razvi before the all clear.
I was very happy with my treatment.
From the moment I met Mr Razvi I felt at ease when he explained my condition and details of the operation required. He was always positive which helped me through those difficult days. I have nothing but praise for the way he carried out the operation and subsequent regular health checks over the past 5 years.
I needed to have a radical hysterectomy due to an abnormal smear test and after having cells burnt out and biopsy taken. I found out that I had cervical cancer. Mr Razvi and his team were amazing and very supportive to my family.
Mr Razvi did a perfect job and I am very happy with the results as having such a small scar helped my confidence and to feel at ease with myself.
