With experience in operating at various day surgeries over the years, Dr Nima Pakrou believes Panch Day Surgery Centre is the most efficient, well-managed surgery he has worked in.
Dr Pakrou, an ophthalmologist whose specialties include cataract surgery and oculoplastics, has been operating at Panch for more than 5 years. ‘I started here soon after the centre opened. At that time, Preston was crying out for a day surgery like this, because it’s a huge growth area,’ says Dr Pakrou. ‘When I first toured the surgery, I was immediately impressed by its aesthetic appeal – it’s a modern, clean and beautiful-looking facility with state-of-the-art technology.’
According to Dr Pakrou, Panch is particularly notable for the way it is managed day to day. ‘It’s a super-efficient surgery – everything runs like clockwork, which minimises waiting times for both surgeons and patients. I’ve worked at lots of different day surgeries over the years, and Panch is definitely the most efficient.’
‘Another feature that sets Panch apart from other places where I’ve worked is that it has all the latest equipment. Every instrument I’ve ever needed has been available, which is especially important in the event of rare complications. It’s so reassuring to operate in a surgery that I know has the equipment and expertise for any situation.’
This commitment to quality flows through to the standard of patient care, according to Dr Pakrou. ‘Panch always scores very highly in accreditation assessments, which is no surprise. Aside from the facilities themselves, the staff here are very well-qualified and have a wealth of experience.’
Dr Pakrou says the future of Panch is bright. ‘There are plans in place to expand the facility and add new equipment, which is exciting because it will offer more options for surgeons who are interested in joining us. It’s a great place to work – I can’t recommend it highly enough.’
