I can't thank Dr Aliaa Arafa enough for being exceptional during my care. Miss Arafa is an experienced consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. She followed me during a special case and solved the issue capably, with clear explanations of the procedures needed and being available to see me not only during weekdays but also on a Saturday when I needed. During the appointments, she was kind and polite. She transmitted much expertise and made me feel comfortable at any stages of the care. I would highly recommend her to any other patients who are looking for knowledgeable consultants in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in London. Grazie e a presto!

I'm writing to extend my gratitude and thanks for Miss Arafa outstanding medical services that was provided to me during my pregnancy and delivery at the Portland hospital. I have chosen my first pregnancy at the Portland hospital and Miss Arafa was my first doctor. I received such a professional care and treatment which made me decide to come for my next pregnancies. I had a total of three C-section deliveries with her, and to be honest, her care and friendliness made it so comfortable as she was always stood there to ease the pain with her care.Miss Arafa shows quality and professionalism with her patients, she would answer all my questions, respond to my concerns and managed my complications with care and love. She made it easier and made me less nervous. I had great outcomes post deliveries and no complications. She's wonderful. My special thanks to Miss Arafa, I would recommend any woman to choose her for her pregnancy as she's certainly the best in the U.K.

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.

I have had two consultations with Dr Aliaa Arafa in the past week and I found her an extremely charming and sympathetic person with a reassuring and professional manner.

We started seeing Miss Arafa early on during the pregnancy, initially to complement the NHS-provided care, because I felt that I was falling through the cracks with my GP. While we went on to do the 13 week and 20 week scans through NHS, by the second trimester,Misss. Arafa was certainly my main care provider and go-to for any questions or concerns. She has been extremely helpful, caring and understanding, taking the time to explain the results, and raised my awareness to certain aspects that I needed to be more careful. I was always welcome and attended to Miss Arafa was very considerate and I never felt rushed. If anything popped up in between visits, I could always contact Ms. Arafa through her very helpful assistant who would answer very promptly. The wait in the waiting room was never significant, which I appreciated since my office is at the east end of the City. Pregnancy - while a great and exciting experience - does come with a lot of worries, concerns and, of course, some bureaucracy - the visits to Ms. Arafa's office were little oases where I felt safe and comfortable, where someone I trusted was taking care of me. Thanks very much for all her great help!

Dr. Arafa is an excellent and very professional doctor with wonderful bedside manners. She has hold my hand during very difficult fertility issues and has been there for me every time that I have needed her. She is very responsive to her patients queries and listens to their concerns. In addition, she provides a great level of guidance. She definitively goes the extra mile to help her patients. Since I move to the UK from the US, she has been there for me and is very open to other medical views and options. I highly recommend doctor Arafa's services.

I am writing as a recent patient of Miss Aliaa Arafa at the Portland Hospital. The quality of the care and attention that myself and my family received from Miss Arafa were of such high quality . My situation was such that I found myself under NHS care throughout my pregnancy and was eventually 12 days overdue with declining physical and emotional health, increasing concern for my unborn child and no prospect of changing my course of treatment from an induced vaginal birth at 14+ days overdue or seeing a consultant on the NHS. Miss Arafa agreed to see me at short notice at this point and having assessed the situation took us under her care which resulted in her taking away all our stress, moving heaven and earth to get us the best treatment at short notice and then having a successful emergency Caesarean section within 48 hours of first contacting her. We will now have a lovely Christmas thanks to the safe arrival of our precious baby girl for which me and my family are incredibly grateful to Miss Arafa and all the team at the Portland. I strongly feel we would have had a very different Christmas and really bad outcome if we had not had the good fortune to meet Miss Arafa and come under her care.

I am also very grateful to Miss Aliaa Arafa for her continuous advice, care and support throughout my wife's pregnancy and after delivery. Miss Arafa was always helpful, available and we have been delighted having her as a consultant obstetrician to look after my wife.

My wife and I recently delivered our fifth child with Miss Arafa as our consulting obstetrician at the Portland Hospital in London. We had been planning to have the baby at home, and given that it was our fifth child, we expected things to go pretty smoothly. What we had not counted on was going overdue, which we did, by two weeks, and that necessitated labour induction. We reached out to Miss Arafa at the very last minute (over the Easter holiday), and she was incredibly accommodating, and agreed to see us immediately and despite not having ever seen my wife as a patient prior to 42 weeks, she agreed to take her on. Her level of expertise and experience was extremely comforting to us, and her care and compassion was extremely evident. She approached the entire process as a “team” effort, engaging my wife and I in every decision made during the entire induction and delivery. I do not have words to recommend Miss Arafa highly enough. She is not only an experienced and competent professional, but she is a caring and empathetic person. Combined, it made for a beautiful birth experience as we welcomed our little girl into the world.

I would like to thank Miss Arafa for the excellent care I received from her as my consultant for this delivery. Having had a nightmarish previous birth, I was naturally sceptical and anxious about this pregnancy. My first meeting with you however, was enough to quell all my fears - her confident outlook and assuring manner put me at ease. During my prenatal appointments, I constantly felt reassured and positive about the delivery; she was literally a phone call or test message away with every question or concern I had. The fact that she could even do ultrasounds personally was a major plus, since I was based outside of London, I did not have to manage several different appointments; you took care of everything under one roof! My delivery was as perfect as could be, I arrived at the hospital to find everything arranged in perfect synchrony by her. We did not have to rush through anything as everything had been taken care of earlier. Since everything went as planned, my recovery process was also faster, and I suffered no post natal depression as had happened with my previous delivery. In all, I truly enjoyed my pregnancy and delivery, thanks to the wonderful care Miss Arafa provided as my consultant. I look forward to having her as my consultant for my next pregnancy as well!
