Dr Persey helped me to understand my condition. He listens carefully and has a very approachable manner.
I first saw Dr Persey last week. He explained my problem very clearly even drawing so I understood. He was very pleasant & seemed to understand what was wrong quickly & efficiently.
I'm hugely grateful to Dr Persey - seeing him was the turning point in my attempts to resolve an issue with my foot, the point at which we finally started to understand what the problem was (and wasn't). Whilst the issue turned out not to be in his area of expertise, his referral onwards to was the last one I needed! I would certainly use him if ever I needed a rheumatologist.

Very good consultation with Dr Percy. Would highly recommend his consultancy.
A very useful and informative consultation delivered with kind and respectful consideration.
Efficient and carried out thorough examination. I could see him without a GP referral.
Dr Persey has a charming, kind and very calm approach. Initially I was a little nervous about a procedure which I subsequently had several times and would hardly have noticed it happening. He has a highly intelligent and sometimes witty way of explaining what is wrong and what can be done.
I can’t praise Dr Persey and his secretary highly enough for all their help. I arranged for my sister to be seen and it’s the first time in a long time that she seems happy and confident about what’s going on.
It is always a pleasure to see Dr Persey, and after treatment I always feel much better. I have had several soft tissue injections to tendons and carpal tunnels and whilst the injections are not pleasant , the relief ,once the injections do their job , is fantastic. Thank you Dr Persey
I went to see DR Malcolm Persey after having a Gout attack he treated me straightaway with a steroid injection and within 12 hours i was feeling much better. He was very understanding and took the time to talk to me about my condition. The next day i received an email from his secretary with very useful information about Gout. I would highly recommend anyone suffering from Gout to book an appointment with DR Malcolm Persey .
He was very patient and understanding and gave me good advice and reassured me
Very helpful and reassuring
Exceptionally knowledgable and concise with explanations. Made to feel at ease over an injury that caused pain and anxiety. Very thorough in all areas to find the best course of treatment.
I just wanted to thank you and Dr Persey for your care and support yesterday. I really appreciate your ongoing efforts to fit me in at what is usually very short notice so I can get back to normal as quickly as possible. I am feeling much better today and back at work 😊. Thanks again
My care through Dr Persey has been first class. He listens and very importantly understands my difficulties and has shown a desire to make sure my issues are identified correctly and put in the right course of medication
Clear, friendly, professional straightforward care and effective treatment.
Excellent advice, expertly and sensitively delivered.
I have unfortunately been in a position where I have had to seek medical advice and treatment for a number of on-going different issues. I have been a patient of Mr Persey since 2002 and I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Persey to anyone who needs professional medical advice / treatment in his field and expertise. A very professional team assists him in appointments and follow ups. His team are contactable and always accommodating.
Debbie (Dr Persey's secretary) was extremely efficient and helpful. Dr Persey has a very pleasant manner and he instilled confidence. Highly recommend this consultant.
Dr Persey is very understanding, listens to what you are saying and is very very helpful.
I met with Dr Malcolm Persey on the 11th April 2019, who was recommended by Dr M Mort. I have been suffering from extreme pains in both my hands and shoulder for over three months. Dr Persey suggested it may well be Polymyalgia, explained it is a condition that causes pain stiffness and inflammation. Dr Persey gave me a thorough examination, explained it was a difficult condition to identify. However, I felt very reassured, after months of pain, here was someone who could identify what I was going through. Dr M Persey provided me with a prescription for mild steroids and a form for a blood test in about 10 days time
My consultation was excellent.Dr Malcom identified my health problem as far as was possible, Explained that Diagnosing Polymyalgia can often quiet a lengthy process involving, several different tests. explained that inflammation was identified by Dr D Mort in a blood test. Further blood test are due in 10 days time, prescription also provided for medication.
I have seen Dr. Persey on two separate unrelated occasions and both times found him to be approachable, knowledgeable, thorough, professional and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend him
