I would highly recommend Dr. Parekattil & Dr.Brahmbhatt as they really care about their patients. First of all, I am an 80 year old man, so I was apprehensive about having an operation on my “jewels.” However, since I had been in severe testicular pain for ten months, it was a “go” with these famous doctors, Dr. Parekattil & Dr. Brahmbhatt. My wife and I met with Dr. Parekattil on January 15, 2014.
He met us with a smile and a handshake. He was very compassionate, answered our questions, and explained the procedure of microscopic denervation of the spermatic cord. Also, he explained other options that could be utilized, if necessary. I told Dr. Parekattil that I had previously been to two other urologists who told me that I would have to live with the pain. I was fortunate, however, to find a third urologist, in Gainesville, who knew Dr. Parekattil when he was on staff at the University of Florida College of Medicine. He highly recommended Dr. Parekattil & Dr.Brahmbhatt and made the appointment for me.
I also loved the “Gator” hat Dr. Parekattil wore in surgery. I met with Dr. Parekattil on January 27, 2014, for the pain block followed by the testicular surgery on January 29th. Prior to surgery, I was prepared by the nurses, followed by the “well-wishers” consisting of Dr. Parekattil, Dr. Brahmbhatt, and the anesthesiologist who told me not to worry about anything and that I was in great hands. The surgery was very successful and I was very pleased by the fact that I was in no pain. Dr. Parekattil had told me that I would probably “hate” him as I would be in pain for about two weeks and that my testicle would be swollen, probably as big as a tennis ball. However, due to the excellent surgery by Dr. Parekattil and the good Lord above, who is my savior, I have not had to take a pain pill.
When my wife and I met with Dr. Parekattil three weeks after my surgery, he could not believe that I had not taken a pain pill. Since my wife and I are residents of Florida and live only 90 miles away, I have another checkup in May. We feel our lives have been restored and that maybe now we can take a vacation. It has been two years since we had one! I highly recommend Dr. Parekattil & Dr. Brahmbhatt, and it was an honor to meet them, along with their “Gator” humor and bow tie which just fits them. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and wish all of you the very best. God bless you all!
