“My consultation with Mr Purkayastha was excellent. From the efficient and very accommodating arrangement of my appointment, the warm friendly reassuring approach and the clearly very knowledgeable skilful clinician it could not have been improved. All the questions asked were pertinent, listening carefully to my answers and Mr Purkayastha was clear in his communication. I feel very reassured and confident that I am placing my health in safe caring hands. “

Mr Purkayastha looked after me for some weeks at St Mary's and I could not have had a more expert, considerate and very kind surgeon. Not only did he get me totally cured but also explained everything to me and addressed all my concerns and made the whole experience as easy and effective as possible.

pain in the groin
I am pleased to have seen Mr Sanjay Purkayastha for the groin problem that I have been experiencing for some time. After initial meeting, he arranged for blood tests, MRI and CT scan. Once the tests were completed, I had a follow up meeting to discuss the course of action.Mr Sanjay took the time to explain the results of the various tests. Thankfully no surgery will be required. I will meet Mr Sanjay again in January 2021 to see the progress that I will make in the next 6 weeks or so. Overall I feel well cared for under the guidance of Mr Sanjay.

Appendicectomy
Excellent, efficient, evidence based care focused on the individual patients needs. The transfer from NHS to the private sector for emergency laparoscopic surgery was extremely efficient, and the administration team made it very easy. The care I received from Mr Purkayastha's team was second to none, for which I am very grateful. Subsequent follow up has been very thorough. I would absolutely recommend Mr Purkayastha.
