Mr Toumi helped me find why I was having difficulty eating. He was always kind, gracious and helpful and always sympathetic and listened to me. He explained the reason and I found him extremely sympathetic and courteous. He is a special man with a great heart.

Mr Toumi is one of the kindest, courteous , and caring consultant you could wish to meet. He really genuinely wants the best for all his patients in his care. You really feel special and he can be trusted with full confidence. Lots of consultants have a lovely manner but Mr Toumi is really special. He was really kind and explained all my options clearly and truthfully so I could understand. He also did my daughter’s bariatric surgery and I was so glad it was him. We are both so grateful to him. He really is a very special gentleman.

After months of gallbladder pain i went to see Mr Toumi and found him very helpful and humble he totally put me and my husband at ease to be able to discuss any worries and ask any questions i had about having surgery to remove my gallbladder. The procedure was done two weeks after the first meeting and was successful i’m now pain free! Mr Toumi came to see me straight after the operation and the next morning The hospital was very clean and the team there very polite and caring. I also felt reassured i could ring if a problem occurred. Thank you Mr Toumi and all the team.

Within 2 minutes of meeting Mr Toumi, I knew I had chosen the right surgeon to perform my bariatric surgery. He listened to everything I had to say, and then went on to explain the surgery. He doesn’t pussyfoot around. He’s very honest, including the possible unwanted side effects and potential dangers of bariatric surgery. And then puts them into perspective. I had absolute faith in him from the get go, and he didn’t disappoint peri or post operatively. He is passionate about changing attitudes towards the treatment of obesity and champions destigmatizaton of it. He is very proactive in educating through social media. I feel extremely lucky to have found Mr Toumi.

Mr Toumi was a perfect gentleman, he made me feel at easy with the procedure I was about to have and explained everything in easy to understand detail. Mr Toumi made sure I was comfortable with what was about to happen on the day of my procedure, and following made sure I was happy with the way things went.

As other patients of Mr Toumi have stated previously, he is someone who listens to you and explains precisely what he is going to do and what your recovery is about.. From first meeting him he put you at ease with his relaxed manner and treated you as one would expect to be treated, as a human not just a patient. I have met some doctors in my time and I have to say this gentleman is at the top.

I have been part of the NHS Tier 3 service for over 2 years and recently had a gastric bypass procedure where Mr Toumi was my surgeon. I cannot fault the care, attention to detail and support I have received from Mr Toumi and his care team. Being kept informed at every step of the way pre and post operative, any questions or concerns are answered and I never have anything to worry about as both Mr Toumi and his team are at the end of the phone if I need help or support. A really first class gentleman.

Mr Toumi was very calming, and explained the procedure to me very clearly. He put me at ease about surgery from first meeting him. He made me feel the best I could on the day of my surgery and after, also telephoning me at home on the evening I returned home. I have had my follow up appointment and everything is going in the right direction. I would recommend Mr Toumi to anybody thinking about having gastric surgery and the Spire hospital. Can’t thank him enough!

I had an amazing experience with Dr Toumi. I am so glad I was able to have the opportunity to meet him and him perform my gastric sleeve surgery. I am now three months post op and I have had no complications at all. My scars have healed so well with no infection at all. My recovery took around a month to feel almost myself again and 6 weeks it was like I hadn’t even had the surgery – all except the amazing results. I am three months post op and I have lost three stone, (less than 1 and a half stone to go until healthy!) The results have been incredible. I look and feel like a whole new person. My confidence has improved so much and I cannot thank Mr Toumi enough for his amazing surgery.

His support before, during and after surgery has been perfect and so reassuring. I have never met a medical professional who shows such care, compassion and support and is an absolute credit to the NHS. I feel incredibly lucky to have been helped by this amazing surgeon. Thank your Mr Toumi for everything.

I had my op at The Spire in Washington. There was just something about Mr Toumi that made me choose him as my surgeon. After my first appointment with him i knew i had made the right decision. My op was 2nd Aug 2019. Middle of Sept i was rushed to Durham university hospital, which was not connected to my operation. Because i was still under the care of Mr Toumi following my op, he was notified of my admission and put me under his care at Durham hospital to make sure i was truly looked after. He was like my knight in shining armour!!

An amazing thoughtful, kind, compassionate man who understands the difficulties of his patients and offers great support advice and help. My life and that of my family has been forever changed for the better because of Mr Toumi. I have never met a health professional who is such a passionate advocate for the patients in his care. He has a fab team around him and always goes over and above ensure patients are incredibly well cared for before, during and after surgery.
