I know Prof. Iyad Hassan for more than 30 years, since the time we studied together in Germany. Very early we could recognise that he is going to be a great doctor. I rarely met a colleague with such solid basic knowledge and so much enthusiasm for medicine in general and his job as surgeon in particular. Furthermore he obtains a huge portion of ethics, in his job and private he is always honest and moral. As Consultant Ophthalmologist I didn’t get the chance to work with him but I have a lot of patients, who were operated and treated by him ( By the way some of them are doctors too ) and all of them are very satisfied and happy with the results and his way how to deal with all of them. I strongly recommend him .

Furthermore same principles he applies to oncological procedures as well. But the most important thing is that he cares about his patients a lot. All his patients are treated like a family member. Excellent surgeon and a great personality!
