I was an extremely nervous patient and reluctant to have a general anesthetic. Sanjay was absolutely first class. His caring manner, ability to explain things in a simple and calming fashion due to his obvious experience was brilliant.

Mr Purkayaastha is a gentleman of a doctor. He has been extremely kind and considerate to me as a patient. He was honest in his assessment of my health needs and carried out my surgery diligently. He is extremely approachable and makes a real effort to explain to his patents what is happening and why - even if he has to repeat himself/explain things a few times. The detail in his follow-up care is great and he makes you feel very comfortable as a patient. He possesses a wealth of knowledge, professional skills and is a really affable practitioner.

Mr Purkayastha has been exceptionally kind and skilled in managing and curing my recent illness. He has explained every stage and issue and arranged concurrent investigations and consultations to ensure my on-going health. He has also been very aware and empathetic of the issues affecting my home life. I have felt truly cared for throughout my time under his care and I could not ask for anything more or better. His personal assistant, Marcela has also been extremely kind and efficient.
