Mr Kwartz has a very easy manner, and is professional yet friendly. He allowed me to explain my symptoms and quickly diagnosed the problem.
Thank you for diagnosing my eye issue and informing me the best procedure for healing.
I’m so glad I had my cataract surgery as I can now see clearly. Everything is bright and colourful. The surgery was a smooth process, 20 minutes and no problems
Everything went very smoothly.
Mr Kwartz was great he explained everything in detail and diagnosed me, he couldn’t help any further but he referred me onto another doctor
Mr Kwartz saw me when I was struggling with pain and significant decrease in vision, having been diagnosed with glaucoma but then no contact from the NHS for further appointments for treatment. He immediately knew that it was not glaucoma, gave a clear explanation of what it was, what the treatment options were, and also was realistic about long term outcome. He put me on treatment regime and within a week I was pain free and vision starting to improve. Within 1 month my vision has improved more than expected. He took the time to answer questions and explain things so we understood. Highly recommend.
