As expected Miss Shahid performed my recent cataract removal with care and skill, but more than that she was kind and friendly throughout and handles the follow-up consultations with patience and clarity.
I cannot remember ever having such good eyesight
I cannot remember ever having such good eyesight as I have right now – and that is entirely down to you [ Miss Shahid] . I know it’s what you do but you do it so elegantly and incredibly well. – Mr RF –
I was very pleased with the whole process. The medical and administrative aspects were all handled professionally but also with humanity and the personal attention by all involved was most impressive. All in all, an excellent performance. – SR –
We cannot fault the treatment received. Caring, prompt, courteous and highly professional.
Both eyes are now greatly improved and vision restored. – Mr JT –
My cataract operations performed by Miss Shahid were 100% successful and I now have first class sight again. The service and operations were carried out over and above my expectations and I cannot thank Miss Shahid and the hospital enough. – AG –
