“The purpose of such references is to help other patients to decide if a doctor is suitable for them. My comments below are my experience of Professor Paleri and I hope help those who are regrettably in need of surgery: Firstly you are in very experienced and knowledgeable hands. His technical excellence and academic research reassuringly complements his practical skills; Secondly his patience- despite my desire to delay surgery to explore other options Professor Paleri was always patient enough to suggest alternatives paths, whilst balancing the risks of delay. Thirdly, Professor Paleri’s surgical handiwork has resulted in the neatest of scars and no post operative complications, despite surgery during the height of a global pandemic. Lastly, whilst surgery can never be described as fun, Professor Paleri brings humour and good energy to every engagement, which goes a long way to elevating the ever present stress when faced with an uncertain diagnosis. “
