    I have had no pain since I got home, except for a headache on the first day. Haven't touched my pain medications. I have my follow up appointment tomorrow morning at 7am - and so far I have lost approximately 7kg so it's been great. I was very satisfied with the quality of treatment and the level of service. The nurses were great and were always encouraging me to walk. They were quick to respond when called and were always smiling. The doctor was very good as well and he visited several times a day. He has been accessible via phone and whatsapp a well.

    I'm very happy with the surgery, the doctor, the hospital and everything. My only downfall is that I miss eating actual food - since I have been on liquids for about 10 days. But for those considering this surgery it really is not that bad and one does not really get hungry... I would recommend Zulekha Hospital and Dr. Hussam to others.

    I was nervous because I was coming from a different country and usually there are tons of reviews of the surgeon and hospital and although there were reviews for Zulekha hospital there were not a lot for Dr. Hussam. When I met Dr. Hussam, he was very friendly and understood the struggles that I had gone through being overweight for most of my life. He told me my options of gastric sleeve and for gastric bypass, the difference being that if I wanted to have children that I should go for the gastric sleeve operation as the bypass may have made it more difficult.

    Dr. Hussam treated me like I was a friend and that was very important to me as sometimes Dr's tend to be critical and dismissive however, he made sure that he was accessible to me at all times.

    When I went in the night before surgery I was greeted and taken care of by very sweet and kind South Asian nurses. They treated me with well and made sure I was always comfortable. I am very grateful for their presence as I was without family or friends during my operation and post care.

    A few days later I was discharged and I didn't have many follow up questions as Dr. Hussam gave me a food chart and meal plan for the next month.

    Although this was a big decision I'm happy that I was able to go through with the procedure with Dr. Hussam.

    The price for colonoscopy was 3 or 4 times more that the price you mentioned.
    And no quotation has been done especially for me, this is just the basic, starting price when I asked for it. So I don't know how you got your first price? Is it only the cost of a doctor consultation?
    Other than this disappointment, the service from Medigo was excellent. Thank you very much!

    I received the gastric bypass at Zuleka Hospital in Al Qusais on Sunday, 19 July. I was very impressed with the hospital, the doctors and staff. Thank you very much to everybody involved with my operation and stay at the hospital. A special thanks to Dr. Hussam, who did the operation! I am well pleased, thank you!

    Dr. Altrabulsi is an excellent surgeon who performs his job with professionalism. He is very knowledgeable about the procedure. I had very little interaction with other departments so cannot give an opinion of the entire hospital. The nurses I came in contact with were not very professional.

    My original appointment, which was scheduled and conformed weeks before my arrival, was postponed by a day, which led to me having to move my departure flight back by a day and rearranging my Hotel reservation. Thankfully though, Dr Hussam was an incredible support and a superb contact to deal with. The staff in the ward were very attentive and helpful, they made me comfortable immediately after my surgery until I left. The clinical / Surgery staff were fantastic. I feel great and I am sure my surgery will be hugely successful.

    I was more satisfied with the doctor . Nurses very good and friendly . And very taking care . The only problem is at the night as my room was right in front desk and some nurses were very disturbing. They even don't think that the patient needs silence and are sleeping but they were laughing and chatting on top of their voice which II think has to be controlled .

    My surgery was on December 21st and I was discharged on the morning of December 23rd. My surgery went very well - actually I have had no pain since I got home, except for a headache on the first day. Haven't touched my pain medications. I have my follow up appointment tomorrow morning at 7am - and so far I have lost approximately 7kg so it's been great. I was very satisfied with the quality of treatment and the level of service. The nurses were great and were always encouraging me to walk. They were quick to respond when called and were always smiling. The doctor was very good as well and he visited several times a day. He has been accessible via phone and whatsapp as well.

    I'm very happy with the surgery, the doctor, the hospital and everything. For those considering this surgery it really is not that bad and one does not really get hungry... I would recommend Zulekha Hospital and Dr. Hussam to others. In fact I have a friend who would like to have a Lap-Band done and she would like Dr. Hussam to do it...so I will be speaking to him tomorrow morning about her.

The clinic was visited by a Medigo team member

Access to the hospital is very easy and as there are no buses in Sharjah, you can get there with a taxi or with your personal car. There is plenty of parking on 2 sides of the building. The view from the top floor is amazing! The hospital is new so everything inside it is new and modern. On every floor there are maps so you know where you are and how to get to your desired location. The clinic was really clean, on every floor I saw at least 2 people cleaning the floors, tables, chairs. The staff were friendly, kind, and helpful. I've nothing but good thoughts and good words about the hospital
