I was so impressed with Mr Shahmalak and the team. The whole process was made to feel really easy and I was made very comfortable throughout. Mr Shahmalak was also very friendly and inspired confidence.
Everything was explained perfectly clearly and all questions was answered very succinctly and fully.
The premises were immaculate and the lunch was also top notch!
It’s early days since my procedure but I cannot recommend Crown Clinic highly enough.
I couldn’t thank Crown Clinic and Dr Shahmalak enough for the way they treated me on the day of my surgery. They made me feel so relaxed and at ease and were the nicest group of individuals I have ever met. I am now 5 months after having the procedure and my eyebrows are growing all the time. My right eyebrow has already practically grown through properly and my left is slowly catching up!
Please can I just say thank you so much for changing the way I feel about myself and giving me the opportunity to live my life without worry and to the maximum!! Dr Shahmalak you are the greatest person I’ve ever met and I wish you as much love and happiness in return. God bless xx
Dr Shahmalak and Team! I can’t thank you enough for how well and comfortable you made me feel when I was in Crown Clinic. All the nurses was lovely always asking me if I was ok and if there was owt they could do for me at anytime! I can’t comment on the hair as yet as it’s been only 2 days but I’m sure I will be pleased with the outcome in time ☺! But as far as the transplant has gone it looks 100% with everything they have done for me. I can’t thank them enough and I would recommend them to anybody I know or anybody who is thinking of having a transplant done! 10/10 5 Star. Thank you very much Dr Shahmalak and Team ☺!
After my initial consultation, I was dealt with very quickly. Dr Shahmalak and his team were very good and efficient, I experienced some soreness at the back of the head for about five weeks and I am now at the six weeks stage and I have a light covering of hair after the procedure.
Crown Clinic was a good choice. The staff was very professional and caring. I am happy with the procedure.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Surgeon Asim Shahmalak, Afshan and all of the girls for your first class treatment towards me.
I must say that everybody was professional throughout.
My experience at Crown Clinic was incredibly positive throughout the processes and consultation as well as pre and post surgery. My plan of initial intervention and long term care, was expertly tailored to my individual needs as the patient.
My initial consultation was particularly comprehensive, answering all possible questions from myself and accompanying parent. Dr Shahmalak and his team employed a considered and empathetic approach to treatment, making the procedure almost entirely painless and manageable.
The work undertaken by Dr Shahmalak and the rest of the team at Crown Clinic will undoubtedly have an overwhelming impact on my quality of life in the coming years. I cannot thank your team enough for your efforts.
I look forward to sharing my results with you in the coming months.
My deepest thanks and appreciation.
The consultation was professional and accurate, I felt it was realistic and informative. All staff were pleasant and put you at ease.
The day of the surgery was nerve racking but staff were friendly and put me at ease, the whole experience was not as bad as I expected.
I was given everything I needed for my aftercare and I knew staff were on hand if I need them.
Dear Crown Clinic,
Please see below feedback for the time spent under your care:
Well, how do I begin to describe my experience from the initial consultation to the day after the surgery! Let me start with Dr Shahmalak himself. When I bought into the whole procedure I was really buying into the doctor himself. His ‘bedside manner’ is something that’s lost on many doctors these days and to his credit, the manner in which I was spoken to was the single biggest driving factor to agreeing to proceed with the surgery. I was sceptical prior to the consult as many cosmetic procedures promise the earth and deliver very little however, I wasn’t promised miracles just a realistic chance of attaining some level of satisfaction when looking in the mirror again. Listening to the stories of Dr Shahmalak’s early career during my time there made me realise it’s a great loss to the NHS that he decided to leave. I’ve only ever met a couple of doctors who make you feel that comfortable and he’s one of them. You get what you pay for in life and when it comes to your own body, why you would risk everything on a lesser, cheaper option is beyond me.
The follow up discussions mainly took place with Afshan who although is a little more formal/serious than the Dr, is still very good and instilling confidence in a very nervous patient. Realistically any potential candidate must go through the same thought process as I did, ‘could this make things worse, will the outcome be worth the financial impact, will everyone notice and ridicule me for this just as much as losing my hair?’, all these things passed through my mind and Afshan helped me remove these reservations. To her credit she played her role excellently and her input was valuable.
In the time between the consultation and surgery I kept in regular contact with the Clinic (Afshan & Joanne) both of whom never got frustrated with me continuing with an onslaught of questions. Joanne was particularly good and always happy to help me. Again another amazing member of the team, long may she stay there.
On to the actual surgery. The process with hotel accommodation is ideal and eliminates much of the stress the day before. In my case I also had an additional night which was greatly needed due to the distance and highly appreciated. On the day , from the second I arrived, I felt relaxed and welcome. This is where the technicians really come into their own. To name the stand out members is by no mean belittling to the others. As you spend most of the time facing away from them it’s very hard to get a sense of who is doing what and who is speaking. I would like to give a personal thank you thought Alex & Rosa, These two absolutely made my day. Funny, calming and faultless with their support. The whole system, pace of the day, hospitality, entertainment just does not ever need to change. The rest of the girls (Natasha & Co) worked really hard also when it came to the grafts and I appreciated all that they did, ultimately only time will tell if the effort paid off.
As the result won’t be visible for some time I cannot confirm whether I’m truly happy with the result, time will tell. What I am happy with is the fact I’ve bought some hope of confidence back with my money. Yes the surgery is substantial for a relatively low impact and yes I will have to no doubt go through the same cost again in the future but… in the grand scheme of things £12k buys you not that great of a second hand car these days, one that wouldn’t last too long before it was unfit and unreliable whereas this will hopefully satisfy me for a lifetime and I couldn’t put a price on that.
I don’t normally bother with feedback forms or reviews so it seems strange to write this. You obviously did an amazing job to make me feel the need to write to you all. What a fantastic group of people you are and I’m sure it will be in no time before I see you again for the op’ number 2. Keep up the good work people, you’re all a credit to the industry.
In summary to any potential candidates, don’t look elsewhere, stop right here and go ahead, you’ll not have a single regret…other than the healing period!! During this time you look like a monster ☺.
Best wishes to all of you at Crown Clinic.
