Following on from my final appointment with Mr Athanasias on Tuesday evening, I would like to express my infinite thanks to him for all that he has done.
From my initial consultation I felt at ease as he explained things in a way that was easily understood and finally acceptable to me.
Despite the operation being such a major procedure I have experienced virtually no pain and only very little discomfort.
Due to his patience, knowledge, articulation and, ultimately, his overall skill I couldn’t have asked for a better Consultant. Once again, I thank you.Michelle, LondonPelvic pain
Mr Athanasias is a courteous and sensitive doctor who I turned to following nearly ten months of irregular and heavy bleeding. He soon identified the cause and guided me through various options to ensure that the best possible solution was reached. I am very grateful to Mr Athanasias and will continue to refer to him for any future gynaecological check ups.Harriet, LondonIrregular vaginal bleeding
I would like to thank Dr. Panayi (Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist Subspecialist Urogynaecologist) and his personal assistant Amy for the fantastic and friendly care and service they have given me during my troubles from September 2015 to February 2016!
I had been feeling pain and discomfort for a longer period of time (3 years) but it was in September 2015 when I met Dr. Demetri C Panayi for the first time when I actually got help and someone finally listened and understood me. Dr. Panayi is a dedicated professional with a great sense of compassion. From the first appointment until now I have been able to get help through seeing him or by e-mailing him. Dr. Panayi’s personal assistant Amy has also been a very friendly and helpful person through my struggle and it has felt so secure to have these two lovely persons by my side. They even helped me to ensure that my Easter holiday would be a success by fixing an antibiotics prescription for me for just in case of emergency.
I have gone through 2 cystoscopies and 1 hysteroscopy with Dr. Panayi (Parkside Hospital) and 1 Laparoscopy with Dr. Athanasias (Spire St. Anthony’s Hospital). All of the procedures have been taken care of with the highest of quality, professionalism and discretion and the best part is that the consultants have a great sense of humor which makes every appointment a positive and nice experience. Thanks to Dr. Panayi and Dr. Athanasias I have got my “life” back and therefore I can truly recommend these two consultants to everyone!

I met Dr Athanasias at St Anthony’s Hospital for a check up and a scan further to having been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst.
I was impressed by Dr Athanasias’ professionalism.
I am thankful and have no doubt in recommending Dr Athanasias to women with gynaecological problems.Kornelia, SurreyOvarian cyst
I have been seeing Mr Panayi for the last 3/4 years with bladder problems. He performed a prolapse of the bladder repair about 3 years ago. The operation went well but I was unwell when I was home. I was told to go back to St Anthony’s hospital on Bank Holiday Monday and he came to see what he could do. I was very grateful and impressed that he would give up his time on a Bank Holiday. I have seen him on and off for the last couple of years. He has always been very professional and helpful always explaining the various options in great detail. I have every confidence in him and would recommend him to anyone with urinary problems.Jayne B, Cheam, SurreyVaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, voiding problems
I had a third degree tear after a forceps delivery of my first baby. Unfortunately the initial stitches broke down leaving a gaping wound which limited all my bending movements due to pain: which made caring for my new baby very difficult. After contacting Mr Athanasias’ secretary he saw me in clinic the same day and was very kind and professional explaining everything clearly and giving me a plan of action. After a course of antibiotics he repaired the wound, fitting me in at the start of his theatre list to minimise any delays to me breastfeeding my baby. He continued to follow me up regularly until the wound had completely healed and gave me practical advice along the way about how best to encourage healing and what activities to avoid. He was accessible whenever I had any concerns and I am very grateful for his kindness and patience from beginning to end of this process.Sophia, SuttonChildbirth injury
I was referred to see Mr Panayi, after a previous gynaecological operation with a different specialist had failed.
From the first point of contact with his secretary Amy, to seeing Mr Panayi in out patients and being admitted for my operation, I can only say what a seamless, easy experience it all was.
Amy was very helpful liaising with my insurance company for me, expediting my out patients appointment and arranging my hospital admission.
I found Mr Panayi to be a kind, caring person, who listened to my concerns and he alleviated any stresses I had over the coming surgery.He took as much time as needed to explain the procedure and the outcome to me.
The operation was a great success and I haven’t felt this well in years.
Great outcome, I would fully recommend Mr.Panayi.

I felt happy to explain all my symptoms to Mr Athanasias, who spent an incredible amount of time going through all options available to me, he was very informative and I was comfortable with his recommendations and my choices. My operation was carried out swiftly and my recovery was problem free. Mr Athanasias listened and provided solutions even outside of his area of expertise and my life has certainly changed for the better.Paula, SuttonMenorrhagia, pelvic pain
I was unfortunate enough to develop simple hyperplasia last year and was referred to Mr Athanasias to discuss my treatment options. I would not hesitate to recommend any woman with a gynaecological problem to seek his help. I felt extremely lucky that he was my consultant at a difficult time for me, and just hope he doesn’t move on from my area in case I should ever need his expertise in the future!Jackie, SurreyEndometrial hyperplasia
I was recommended to Mr Panayi by a friend and have been treated very well , finding him very approachable and thorough . In making a decision to undergo surgery I feel very well informed and comfortable that I am being looked after by someone who genuinely wants to offer the best options available to me but also takes care to listen to any concerns I may have. I feel that I been treated with great empathy which has been very important and makes me feel very positive about further treatment.

My husband and I are indebted to Mr Athanasias for his care and support after our miscarriages. He enabled us to get all the investigations we wanted carried out, listening to our concerns and offering encouragement and advice. When falling pregnant again, it was anxious time but Mr Athanasias gave us the reassurance we needed through additional scans and throughout all of our appointments we never felt rushed but instead felt that time was taken to explain things and answer all of our questions. Mr Athanasias prescribed us with a combination of medication which proved successful for us and we are now proud parents of a beautiful baby girl! We cannot rate Mr Athanasias highly enough!Lavinia, CheamRecurrent miscarriages
I cannot say how incredibly grateful I am that one of my doctors at Brocklebank suggest I consult with Mr. Panayi.
Living with a chronic condition is difficult enough; finding someone who not only understands the problem but listens and most importantly gives you time, is invaluable.
I have struggled for many years, and for the first time in a very long time, feel reassurance and even hope. He has a warm and friendly manner and a genuine interest in what I am going through. Treatment options are discussed in a clear way, nothing is rushed and you have time to think it through. There is no one size fits all approach – which I hate.
I now feel that I can not only be treated – but possibly even cured.
I cannot recommend Mr. Panayi highly enough. If only I had seen him years ago.Anna C, Longstanding urinary tract infections/severe bladder inflammation
Mr Athanasias was a pleasure to deal with when I was at my lowest point constantly having to deal with gynaecological issues and recurrent miscarriages. His warm approach and calmness helped me through a very difficult time and I am thoroughly grateful to him for everything.Sandra, SurreyIrregular bleeding, recurrent miscarriages
Last year, after suffering from ongoing lower abdomen pains and concerns that I had endometriosis, Mr Athanasias performed a laparoscopy on me. From the initial consultation to the operation itself, Mr Athanasias was incredibly helpful, friendly and professional. I had seen a number of consultants already to rule out bowel conditions and it was refreshing to be seen be somebody who really listened to me and genuinely cared. He explained the process in detail and then straight after the operation, took me through the photographs of his findings to explain everything to me. Fortunately I did not have endometriosis but he found a small cyst in my Fallopian Tube and some adhesions which he successfully removed. I recovered well from the operation and at my follow up consultation Mr Athanasias went through all the details with me. I am now 25 weeks pregnant with my first baby which is extremely exciting. I will be truly grateful to Mr Athanasias for the fantastic service he gave me and would highly recommend him to any women who need to undergo gynaecological operations.Sheridan, WallingtonPelvic pain
