Mr Hussain was extremely kind and informative, he really put me at ease throughout the whole operation and the results are amazing.
Mr Hussain was so kind and courteous, explaining everything to make it easy to understand, during my initial consultation, at both operations, and at my follow-up. Chatting to me during the operation was very helpful too, and it was over before I knew it.
Mr Usman Hussain's outstanding communication skills and full understanding of my problems gave me great confidence of achieving a good result. The outcome was beyond my expectations. Many thanks and well done.
I had an amazing experiences, Mr Hussain put me at my ease explaining absolutely everything, there was no pain, just as he said, right eye first 10minutes, one week later left eye, 7 minutes and the outcome has transformed my life. I thank Mr Hussain from the bottom of my heart.
I had YAG treatment recently about 5 years post cataract removal and lens implementation which Mr Hussain had carried out. His advice at that time was excellent and I have been most satisfied. He is thoughtful, helpful, informative and most proficient and professional. The latest treatment was rapid and successful in every way and my good vision has been returned to me.
Mr Hussain explained my contract operation very clearly so nothing was a surprise. All my appointments have been very professional handled but also Mr Hussian speaks with a lightness to ease any concerns. On the day of my first operation I very pleased that I saw him very quickly after arrived in the hospital. He checked all the measurements to reassure me as I wear contact lenses I was concerned that they may have effected the measurements. The two operations itself were very efficient. Mr Hussain explained each stage very well both before hand and during the operation. He also gave timings for how much longer the operation would take. Mr Hussain had a very good team around him who obliviously all knew the procedure and were very quick and efficient.
Mr Hussain and his team were professional, kind and reassuring before, during and after the cataract op. I am so glad I have had the procedure, it's life changing, I would highly recommend Mr Hussain.
I found that Mr. Hussain explained the procedure fully but in understandable terms. I was particularly nervous but his care and professional manner put me at my ease.
From the initial consultation and throughout the procedures themselves I found Mr. Hussain to be very reassuring and calming which was much needed. He offered clear explanations to my various, often minor issues, which assisted in alleviating my concerns about the surgery.
