“Mr Elghalhud has been a delight to interact with. All the way through the process, he has shown kindness and courtesy, and taken the time to make sure I understand thoroughly exactly what the procedure entails and what my options are. Repeatedly gave me opportunities to ask questions, and follow up queries by email received an answer within hours. The procedure itself was quick and painless, and Mr Elghalhud's surgical expertise combined with the reassurance that comes from knowing exactly what to expect left me feeling in very safe hands. Will definitely choose Mr Elghalhud again when the other cataract needs doing.“
