    As well as being very competent, perhasps as important, Mr Parnell is also reassuring. I had consulted him about cataracts, which he confirmed. But he also diagnosed a vein occlusion in the riight eye with some macular oedema. I was seen immediately by St Thomas Hospital where the diagnosis was confirmed and the treatment was exactly as Mr Parnel had said it would be.

    Both my husband and I had our cataracts done, first in January and then again in November. Each time Mr Parnell made the pre-op experience and, more importantly, the actual operations as least stressful as possible. We cañnot sing his praise high enough and thank him and his staff for taking care of us so well.
