Explanation

Professor Patel put our minds at rest from the first appointment. His approach and honesty gave us complete confidence in his ability to complete the surgery safely and competently. He explained the whole procedure clearly and also explained the benefits and risks. In hospital, he was reassuring and gave an air of calm and confidence. We knew the procedure was going to be tricky but felt that we had been informed clearly about it and were very pleased with the excellent outcome. The aftercare was excellent and we felt in safe hands. Prof Patel is not just a highly competent surgeon, he is a genuinely lovely man and has a really caring and reassuring nature. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Helped me understand the causes of my illness and the nature of treatment required. He provided excellent care and advice throughout, with a high degree of professionalism and reassurance.
