I have seen Dr De Mello on 2 occasions, once in April and July 2019. He is very good, knowledgeable and listens then let's you talk. He has been very good helping me along understand my pain as I do not live in Manchester. He has rang me on a few occasions as well and I feel that I am getting somewhere and my pain will be managed and I can move forward as it has been very hard and upsetting for me . If I didn't have this Doctor looking after me I wouldn't know where to turn . Patient, experienced and helpful glad I have been referred to him. With 2 operations had and been in pain for so long this Doctor has talked to me and helped me believe that I can move forward with my life
Arrived pretty well on my knees with pain (not knee pain) and subsequent depression and anxiety. His kindness and support, his listening and explanation have given me hope that my pain can be reduced and managed. The fear around pain can be as debilitating as the pain itself. Understanding my condition has helped and I feel at last that I'm being cared for, not ticked off on a list. The first tiny glimmer of hope through the darkness of a year of life destroying pain.
