I have had a problem for a long time and the solution was long overdue. I was recommended to see Dr Markos Daskalakis. I am so pleased I did. He saw me, realised the urgency and made recommendations for the surgery needed. Moreover he EXPLAINED everything to me and my husband in words and ways I could understand! There was no clockwatching, or rushing the information, which for me was important. I was shown exactly what was to be done, when and where. The cost was broken down clearly, and appointments made, so I awaited for my date to arrive (short time span) The pre-op he arranged raised a couple of serious issues for me, which were dealt with quickly and so the date arrived. I was greeted and made ready for my procedure. Dr Daskalakis saw me before theatre and soon after arrival back on the ward. Post procedure advice was given - and has been followed! My follow up appointment was again clear and concise. I am extremely happy with the care, attention to detail and the ease of keeping in contact. Any queries I had, small and large were answered clearly and promptly. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr Daskalakis.

I had a gastric sleeve performed by Mr Markos Daskalakis, at the Spire Parkway Hospital in December 2022, from the very first telephone appointment he put me at ease and answered all of my questions. On the day of the surgery I was nervous, anxious and in a bit of a state but he spent the time I needed with me and did not leave until I was happy and at ease. I had 0 complications after the surgery, didn't need any pain killers the day after surgery and didn't suffer any sickness at all and still haven't. He also allowed me to see the pictures of the surgery, he also checked on me the whole time I was in hospital. I cannot thank Mr Markos Daskalakis enough, I am 3 months post-op and have list 3 stone 3lbs so far.

I had VGS surgery with Dr Daskalaskis at Spire Parkway hospital in August 2021. In the following 10 months I have gone on to lose 11 stone, have zero complications and have a new lease on life. Dr Daskalaskis is so respectful, kind and professional, I honestly couldn't recommend him more highly. As an obese person you get used to being treated a certain way by medical staff. Dr Daskalaskis treated me with such humanity and kindness. He is an excellent surgeon. The day after my surgery I cried and thanked him for changing my life, and he said "you have changed your own life". Yes, but I couldn't have done it without the amazing work he did. Thank you Dr Daskalaskis.

Until 2 months ago, my husband and I, lived in Crete, Greece and are now living back in the UK permanently. Following 12 months of stomach problems, in June this year, I was recommended to Dr Daskalakis. At our first and subsequent meeting at his surgery in Chania Crete, Dr Daskalakis explained everything, in a detailed, professional and friendly manner, which gave my husband and I every confidence, in what was an anxious time. Following tests and scans, Dr Daskalakis performed Laparoscopic surgery on me, in July at the Iasis Hospital,  Chania. Pre and post op, he was always available and talked us through any concerns. The operation was a complete success and I'm happy to say my stomach is the best it has been for a number of years. I cannot recommend Dr Daskalakis  highly enough, a brilliant surgeon, very professional, and an extremely nice person. Elizabeth Tennant.

After considering bariatric surgery over the years, and researching surgeons thoroughly, I decided that Mr Markos Daskalakis was preferred surgeon. Mr Daskalakis performed my gastric bypass, he was very considerate and explained the procedure fully. I felt very reassured knowing he was my surgeon. I would thoroughly recommend him and have already done so.
