    Lengthy to get procecure booked in, then unfortunate to have a 5 hr delay of procedure with unclear explanation and no follow up after the procedure. Next day he did call and answered my questions on how the procedure went. Very nice to talk to and clear explanation on appointments, just unfortunate the procedure part had some issues. Happy with expertise and treatment.

    Nothing negative from the experience. It would be useful to be sent a summary of the issue and options for treatment. While it seems fine at the time and makes sense I come away forgetting everything - in one ear out the other.

    Great person, I found Dr Bhagawati as best friend even though I met him first time. Dr Bhagawati taken extra mile by referring to his website read more about my condition. He is not only a best professional in his field but also has good humour. Dr Bhagawati put himself in patient shoes and try to understand the condition and explain solutions/options.

    I have seen Mr. Bhagawati twice. On each occasion I was welcomed and walked to the consulting room. He was courteous and made me feel comfortable there. On my first visit Mr. Bhagawati explained the content of the GP referral letter and what it meant. He asked permission to examine me which he did with care and checking my pain continuously. My second visit was a follow-up. During both consultations he discussed his findings in detail and at a level with I was able to understand and a pace I could follow. He was pleasant at all times and I felt I could ask any questions, no matter how trivial they might have been. The consultations ended with him outlining the next step for himself and me.

    Mr Bhagawati was very friendly and polite to me. He conveyed a very clear understanding of the problem and the process required to resolve the issues raised regarding my current situation. The explanation made to me, reassured me that I will be in capable hands as his experience, confidence and state of the art equipment all showed. Mainly though, he showed a genuine concern for my welfare and situation that I am in. It was a pleasure to meet with him. Many thanks Michael.
