“Mr Demetri Panayi seemed very knowledgable and understanding of my condition. He could describe my symptoms even before I expressed them myself. He made me feel very safe in his care, and very at ease. He seemed hugely sympathetic and compassionate when discussing the pain I have been in for so long. I finally have hope that my condition will improve with his support. “

    Finding Mr Panayi was such a relief - to have someone that understood all the issues and could present multiple options to me in a clam, considered and human way. I finally felt that someone was listening and could help me. I'll be forever grateful to him.

    Dr Panayi is a fantastic specialist. I was desperate to get some help and saw many other doctors. Then I found dr. Panayi and from the first visit he was very supportive and understanding. He straight away gave me a short term solution for my pain as well as recommended a long term approach. So I really felt taken care of. Doctor is truly passionate about what he does and I felt very confident in his diagnosis. I have previously spend over a year struggling with a bladder inflammation and was getting mixed information elsewhere. But with dr Panayi and his wonderful and attentive assistant I now feel million times better and I trust I can count on him in the future. Book your appointment today!

    I have seen Mr Panayi several times over the past 18 months for a bladder condition. It was such a relief to find a specialist who was knowledgeable and reassuring. He took plenty of time listening to my symptoms and booked me for a cystoscopy to confirm his diagnosis. His calm, sympathetic approach really put me at my ease and allowed me to see a path to recovery. He also referred me to a women's health physio to help with related pelvic floor issues. I highly recommend Mr Panayi and can't thank him enough for seeing me through a very challenging time.

    Mr Panayi was calm and professional and that really helped set me at ease particularly having to discuss something I felt was embarrassing. He explained the options clearly and I was able to make an informed decision. I have just had my six week check up after surgery and am very pleased - I feel like I have my body back again!

    Dr Panayi was so great! He was patient and calming while he listened to my rambling explanation of various symptoms, and made me feel incredibly comfortable. He described my condition clearly and gave me a number of potential treatment options. I finally feel like I understand what I am dealing with and the nature of the condition, and trust him to help me through my treatment. I am so glad I made an appointment with him, and I would 100% recommend!

    I immediately felt comfortable with Mr Panayi, as he has a calm, friendly and caring manner. He clearly explained the treatment options, pros and cons of each, the risks and recovery. All my concerns and questions were answered fully and and without rushing. In addition, he and Amy (private secretary) went to great lengths to arrange the surgery to fit in with my needs; a mean feat against the background of Covid-19. I feel confident that we shall achieve the best possible outcome.

    He is very reassuring and explains all your options, allowing you to have more of a say in what treatment you want to try. His secretary is also very responsive to emails and will try to fit you in for last minute appointments if needed. I am hopefully I can get back to normal with some more time. I decided to see him (for a 2nd opinion) based on good reviews I had read of other peoples experiences and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with urological/gynaecological issues.

    Although I see Mr Panyai privately this is the first time I had a telephone consultation due the present problem.The appoinment was made on short notice due to the urgency & I was given a urgent appoinment & Mr Panayi phoned us on time listened to all by problems & explained to me clearly & took his time to explain everything & his secretary Amy hand delivered the prescription due the postal delays.Well done Amy.
