Explanation

Dr Kashani was polite, friendly and explained my situation and options very clearly. He continued to keep me well informed throughout the procedures of both eye operations and had a very good 'bedside manner' together with the staff who accompanied him throughout my procedures.

Explanation

Before I met Dr Kashani I felt as if others saw me as another person with an eye condition, however he identified my eye disease, which not only allowed me to understand it more but gave me the reassurance that the treatment given was the most suitable. He is always very reassuring and approachable but most of all he cares and that in itself feels personal. He listens and knows if I am having a tough time and always has time to investigate and arrange treatment. I have been his patient for many years now and have openly told him I would not want any other consultant treating me. A very remarkable person indeed

Explanation

I would recommend Dr Kashani to everyone. He put me at ease right from my first appointment. Since having the cataract surgery I can now see clearly and it is wonderful. I could see well the day after my op and can honestly say it is truly amazing. Having the surgery not only means the cataracts are no longer there but my vision is better than it has ever been. I no longer need glasses for long distance and am in awe of everything I can see. This experience has been life changing and has made me feel I want to live life to the full. I will always be thankful to Dr Kashani for his dedication and skill.
