    Mr Shah assessed the progress of my glaucoma in 2020 and explained to me how both of my eyes would benefit from the surgical procedure of Trabeculectomy. He and his team performed the surgery to my right eye on January 6th, 2021 and my left eye on February 10th, 2021. I was very impressed by the care of both his surgical treatment and the manner in which he explained to me what he was doing and the regular follow up assessments of how the pressure on my eyes had been lowered.

    I was recommended to have a consultation with Mr. Shah as he specialised in the particular condition I have with my right eye. I found Mr.Shah to be charming.He clearly explained the situation with my eye and the procedure he proposed to carry out to improve matters. When I came to hospital for the procedure Mr. Shah again explained everything to me and answered all my questions and put my mind at rest. I have had a post-operative consultation with him which went very well. In my opinion Mr.Shah is a very capable consultant and the type of person that treats patients with care and consideration.
