    He was very welcoming and courteous and explained in detail of what to expect from the procedure. I had 3 surgeries in space of 6 months and all went perfectly well and pain free.

    I had my first consultation with Prof Pereira yesterday and I already know I made the right choice. Over the last several months I’ve seen a lot of different consultants who were quick to jump to the standard diagnosis of “anxiety and IBS”, without even listening to my symptoms, just because I’m a female in early 30s. Professor Pereira is different than any other doctor I’ve spoken to - he actually takes time to listen, understand my concerns and answer all questions in a professional but also very friendly manner. He took my symptoms seriously and will perform further diagnostic tests. I wish I found out about him a year ago when my pain started! I also would like to mention that Sue, his secretary, is very responsive, professional and sorts everything out at lightning speed :)

    I had an appointment with Professor Pereira on the 26th July 2021. He reviewed a CT scan, he clearly explained the situation and has recommended a plan of action which is reassuring. I would also like to add that Professor Pereira's secretary, Sue, is excellent as well.

    Patient seen for:
    Professor Pereira answered all my questions both before and after the procedure. He spoke to me in a very friendly way and made sure I understood everything he told me. As Prof. Pereira could not conclude the procedure he made sure I was awake enough afterwards to tell me the options I have and explain each one so I could make an informed choice. Prof. Pereira very kind whilst professional and I felt very comfortable talking to him and very safe.
