Testimonials

"I first met Dr A Syed at SRH over 4 years ago in the Bariatric clinic. A more caring patient doctor you couldn't wish to meet. His empathy and understanding, his ability to explain calmly and clearly just what Wls was and the affects were so easy to understand. I am eternally grateful to him."

— Patient who saw Dr. Akheel Syed in Salford Royal
