I feel like I was professionally taken care of by Dr Peter Karpati and would recommend him. I was under for a 2.5h surgery, and upon waking was not nauseous, and I have been relatively comfortable since (currently 5 days post). I was given a high regime of pain meds after going home that I did not find I needed, but I appreciate the pain-management plan that was provided for me. It was clear what I could do to manage my own comfort and at which point I should contact them for further instructions. I have been given multiple ways to contact him should I need to. The doctor was mindful of my disability, but it would have been nice to have a bit more reassurance as this was my first time under anaesthetic. I would also appreciate it in future if the Dr could check pronouns as a general note. (I use they/them, so am misgendered regularly, so I do not hold it against him personally)
I was a private in-patient overnight at the hospital below on two occasions July and September of this year for surgery on both feet. The care and treatment I received was first class in all aspects. Everything was explained clearly to me by my surgeon Mr Stuart Metcalf and my anaesthetist Doctor Peter Karparti prior to going to theatre. Regarding the anaesthetic I was asked to complete a pre-operative questionnaire prior to admission and Dr Karparti then re-confirmed the answers with me prior to going into theatre and put me completely ease. The experience was so pleasant that I actually looked forward to going in for the second operation under the same surgeon and anaesthetist with total confidence!! I cannot offer any ways of improvement as for me everything was perfect.
