Patient-centred care

Mr Kubba adopts a patient-centred approach, using his long experience in gynaecology to provide individually-tailored investigations and treatment plans that avoid any unnecessary tests or procedures and that employ the full spectrum of potential treatments, from surgical and medical to natural or lifestyle remedies. Consultations are not time-limited, allowing patients as much time as they need, both in the clinic and beyond.

Available 24/7 by means of email, Mr Kubba ensures that his focus is on the whole person, rather than the problem in isolation. For him, prevention of future problems, quality of life and physical, sexual and emotional fulfilment are integral to any treatment plan.
