    I have been under monthly observation by Dr. Shankara Paneesha for the past six years as I suffer from Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Throughout that period he has been attentive, extremely responsive, very thorough, clear in both his verbal and written communications and enormously empathetic. I consider myself fortunate to have had him as my consultant over the entire period.
