    Patient seen for:
    I found Mr Farinella’s level of professionalism admirable. I was a fairly nervous patient, but he put my mind to rest explaining exactly how the procedure to repair my hernia would be carried out and took extra time to address my concerns etc. I really cannot speak highly enough of Mr Farinella. I’m very grateful to have had him as my surgeon

    Patient seen for:
    Despite the remote consultation process due to the Covid restrictions the consultation was thorough and explained clearly by Mr Farinella. Post operation and follow up to a successful hernia repair went with warm professional air, and would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone who needs this operation.
