      Dr. Pandalai was very patient and sensitive to my questions and concerns. He explained things very well using a visual that made it easy to understand and clear what to expect. Although, this is a serious surgery Dr. Pandalai made me feel at ease and very comfortable which helped reduced my already anxious state of mind.
