Dr. Nasirs Personality
A very experienced surgeon with training in Melbourne, Australia. Dr Nasir is an extremely popular and highly skilled surgeon who spends long hours in the operating theatre, so his consultation time may be more limited than other surgeons.
Surgery specialization: Tummy tuck, Liposuction, Breasts, Facelift, Vaginoplasty, Thigh lift, Buttocks lift
Age: Mid 60s
Personality: Dr Nasir has a deserved reputation amongst medical personnel and patients as a consummately skilled professional surgeon. His surgery time is his major priority often putting in many extra hours to get the best possible results for his patients. He is a clear communicator about procedures, however he is not a chatty doctor, and so therefore consultation times are often relatively brief.
Pros: His package prices in a wonderful hospital is unbeatable, no-nonsense approach to patients, flexible times as he works long hours, very clear and precise communication. Dr Nasir works at both PCMC (5 star hospital) and IMC (day centre), so he gives both options to patients depending on your needs, surgery and budget.
Cons: Mainly with his limited consultation time: Dr Nasir doesn’t beat about the bush in consultations, giving information clearly and quickly, so his consultations are much shorter than other surgeons.
His operating schedules mean that he does patient consultations either before or after surgery and this can result in his in-patient consultations happening at odd hours, such as late at night or during weekends. He frequently does his consultations on the day of surgery as he finds that this is a better and more efficient way of doing surgery, so all the details that you spoke about in the consultation are fresh in his mind. However, this does not give patients new to surgery much time for reflection or questioning. This is good for patients who are straightforward, know what they want and they don’t want to wait hours and days for their surgery. However, if you don’t want to have short or a consultation close to surgery, then you may want to choose another surgeon.
Best for: Patients who know exactly what they want, done their homework and don’t need a long discussion of choices and options. Those who want an outstanding surgeon and hospital at a reasonable price, and who understand that consultation times will be shorter because of the popularity of the surgeon.
