“I would like to say how incredibly supportive Dr Arafa has been throughout my care. I have been seeing Dr Arafa since being 12 weeks pregnant. She has been a great support emotionally as I have been extremely anxious about examinations and labour. She was available via phone throughout the pregnancy and always responded quickly and efficiently to any communication. During appointments everything was explained well and she is very experienced. I was always able to get appointments and only occasionally was she running late due to unforeseen circumstances which I was always understanding of being the nature of her profession. I was always kept up to date and often called in advance of any last minute changed to appointments.At 26 weeks I developed Glucose Intolerance and she referred me for blood tests and very quickly arrange for me to have an appointment with a consultant diabetologist within a few days. I had some complications at 37 weeks and Dr Arafa available straight away to meet me at the Portland. This resulted in me having an emergency Caesarean Section. The healing for my operation was very quick and relatively straight forward with no complications. The incision itself is very small and after 4 weeks has healed very well. I would highly recommend anyone who is anxious to see Dr Arafa as her bedside care and clinical skills and knowledge are exemplary.”
