He was friendly, professional and explained the procedure I was about to have very well.

Doctor Indran Davagnanam treated me several times, blood patches and CT-myelograms. Dr Davagnanam always took the time to explain what was about to happen and make sure I understood and as a patient I felt ‘involved’ in the process rather than an object. I always had plenty of questions, definitely some weird and wonderful ones. Dr Davagnanam always took the time to listen to all of them and give me an answer. During my treatment – which was done on my lower back whilst I laid on my tummy – Dr Davagnanam always made sure I felt safe. He made sure I was as comfortable as possible and showed the utmost respect towards me, and made sure his team treated me in a similar manner. When a treatment had side effects I did not anticipate, Dr Davagnanam made sure he communicated with me all the way through. His competence and kindness – when I didn’t understand, when I was scared, when I was upset, or when I was in pain – have made all the difference. Dr Davagnanam’s care and genuine caring for the patient are unparalleled. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to him and his team.

Fantastic chat with Dr. Davagnanam. He explained and carried out the procedure seamlessly.
It has been a great experience given that hospital experiences are never good.
