    Dr Patani could not have been more professional, kinder or more compassionate in my opinion. He delivered a lot of complicated and quite upsetting information in the best possible way.

    My first visit to Mr Patani was following the discovery of a lump on my breast. I was very anxious to say the least. He immediately made me feel at ease and I felt that I was in excellent hands under his care. He was very thorough and took the time to explain everything to me. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone.

    I am aware that there is a "need" to wear masks - but it really makes communication a lot harder. It is important to be able to see each other's faces so as to be able to understand the complex issues. PLEASE can there be a review to assess whether there is a genuine need here !
