    Hi, could someone shed some light of the time scale of the bypass procedure. I went to my first appointment with Dr Shamsi El Hasani back in June 2016, and was place on the waiting list in September 2017. Star informed me that I would be backdate to my first appointment, to which would be a 6 month waiting list. I’ve not heard a thing, I’ve spoken to Dr Hasani receptionist today (03/02/18) who I felt was extremely aggressive towards me, it almost felt like she was shouting at me. I even had to pull the phone away from my ear. She didn’t even take any of my details down. - I get that people are stress but really no need to speak to people like that. I’ll most likely get removed from the waiting list now. I would just like to know how long.

    Hi, I saw Mr El Hassani way back in September 2016. He told me 12 to 18 months. When I went for the advise meeting earlier this year 2018, I was told it will definitely be done this year. So far I'm still waiting. Sorry to hear of your experience with the secretary, perhaps she was having a bad day! I believe that the Government cutbacks are to blame for the waiting times but Mr Hassani is the best. I've spoken to many ppl who are very pleased with their results. His manner can be a little off putting sometimes, but I wouldn't have anyone else.
