    Explanation (5/5)
    I had a very good experience with Mr Aquilina. I was nervous about having surgery because it was through surgery originally that I had developed adhesions that were causing me such difficulty. My overall situation was a bit confusing as no one was really sure what was the cause of my pain & he explained it in a clear & thorough way over video call. I had consulted with several doctors prior to him but I didn’t think any of them were as understanding. He was sympathetic to the pain I was in & was able to come up with a plan to help that made sense to me. I was also grateful to his secretary who even answered my emails on a Sunday! I would definitely recommend Mr Aquilina for anyone experiencing hard-to-diagnose pelvic pain.

    I have been seeing Mr Aquilina for over 4 years now. He is one of the best Drs I have ever came across. Very professional, he took the time I needed to explain everything until I understood. I had a surgery with him and it was really a pleasant experience from start to end. I cannot thank him enough. I highly recommend him.
