Mr Day put me at ease. He worked quickly though not so I felt rushed. He explained the cause of the problem clearly with the aid of a hand-drawn sketch and provided advice and guidance having diagnosed the problem. It was clear that I was dealing with an expert in his field. I only found out after the consultation how much of an expert! I have no hesitation in recommending him to others in my situation.
Great consultant, fantastically knowledgeable, and explains everything. Very reassuring.
Alex was really good in terms of explaining all about the procedures, side effects or any complications that may occur. Made me very comfortable and calm when the surgery was taking place. Very happy with the whole experience.
Very reassuring - explained everything in detail from pre surgery tests to follow up. Lovely bedside manner.
Mr Alex Day was professional, patient and incredibly kind. He took his time to explain everything to me and ensure that any of my questions were answered fully. Thank you, Alex and team.
Very thorough and clear. Made me feel very comfortable and confident.
Excellent. Alex is very personable and explains things very clearly. He seems to take genuine care of his patients.
Mr Day explained the various procedures with extreme clarity and was very thorough with the diagnosis, treatment and aftercare.
My treatment, for refractive lens exchange, from the first consultation until discharge was excellent. Mr Day was very professional at all times, giving clear and informative explanations at every stage. The thorough pre and post operative scans and testing were reassuring, contributing to the understanding that informed decisions were being made. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Day to any family or friends.
