    Patient seen for:
    Dr Palazzo performed parathyroidectomy on me at Princess Grace hospital - after doing some research he was my number 1 choice. I found him to be an excellent consultant, he explained the procedure (benefits, risks, scarring etc) to me in sufficient detail. The surgery itself was uneventful, I was made to feel comfortable and well taken care of by Dr Palazzo and his theatre staff. One week on, I feel great, the procedure has already made a big difference to my overall wellbeing. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Palazzo.
