I am now 18mths post op and can not praise Mr Kaliaperumal enough. From day one he put me at ease and explained everything to me. He has the knack of making you feel you are the only patient he has and makes you feel relaxed in his company. I actually look forward to my appointments with him. I would trust him with my life (oh I actually did). What a lovely, clever man and also a very good artist :)
