“Mr Carapeti is an EXCELLENT surgeon and clearly an expert in his field. He performed my haemorrhoidectomy and colonoscopy. He is always in a good mood, he is kind and patient, ready to explain in detail what he will be doing and what you will be experiencing, he is ready to answer the patient’s questions and he gives plenty of time. Mr Carapeti was honest when he told me what I would be experiencing after the haemorrhoidectomy at various stages of my post operative recovery. He prepared me for the onslaught of brutal pain, which was very important - I knew what was happening was normal and it was going to get better, which it did, it just took a long time due to the nature of the surgery. I was experiencing exactly as Mr Carapeti had described to me. I had regular check ups with him. When I had an unexpected set back during my recovery he was available to help me and put me back on the road to recovery. Mr Carapeti also has a good team of PAs who are very helpful and responsive. I am so, so glad I chose Mr Carapeti and I would recommend him any day. He is just brilliant and I will be eternally grateful for all his help.“
