Anyone being treated by Dr. Bhayani can be assured they will be treated with professionalism and great care. He takes time to explain procedures and listens to your concerns . He is very personable and at all times is courteous and kind. I never thought I would find a Doctor so amazingly knowledgeable having seen countless Doctors in various hospitals both private and NHS. Dr. Bhayani explained the safest and most effective way to manage my pain without taking the copious amounts of tablets I had been prescribed In the past Absolute fabulous doctor, kind understanding one of the best doctors I have been treated by.
Dr Bhayani inspires confidence and trust. He displays a comprehensive command of pain, and of treatment options. Complementing this professional rigour are his excellent interpersonal skills. He outs you at ease as soon as you enter his theatre. He speaks in a concerned and non-patronising manner. He explains treatments, and engages with the patient throughout the procedure such that we feel integral to it. Last, but not least, he remains cheerful and affable throughout. I almost look forward to my injections!
I see Dr Bhayani for pain relief injections. I am needle phobic, but he is very sympathetic and re-assuring. Although the injections will always be a problem for me, I can cope (just) with them, without being made to feel foolish as some medical staff do.
Dr Bhayani always listens to your point of view and has been a great source of help and hope to me. He made it clear he could do so much but now down to me to continue his work. This is important as I think nowadays people expect everything to be curable when somethings are down to poor lifestyle. He is honest and efficient. Some of his theatre team last time I was there were unfriendly and did not seem to be doing much? He was the only person who greeted me and spoke to me through the procedure.
Listened to what I had to say and explored various options, explaining the pros and cons and coming to a decision with me rather than for me. On the day of my procedure, I was put at ease and every step was explained and I was given time out if needed. I felt comfortable that I was in safe hands and that Dr Bhayani really does want what’s best for his patients.
