I couldn't fault him, he explained everything as we went along. The operation was a great success and I'm delighted with how my eyelids are settling down. Mr McLean has an excellent bedside manner, he talked me through the whole process which really put me at ease. A true professional at every step.

Explanation

Considerate and highly competent in every way. I was very impressed by the post-op phone call the following day to check how I was. Mr McLean’s medical secretary made the call. Mr McLean’s manner is patient and attentive. The results of my cataract surgery in both eyes are absolutely excellent! I could not be more grateful!

Mr McClean made the whole experience very relaxing. A ptosis operation and two cataract operations were all done with no fuss in a friendly and calm environment. During consultations explanations were clear and concise and I always felt that my questions and concerns were listen to and I was able to make informed decisions about my treatment. I would thoroughly recommend Mr McClean.

Explanation

Mr McLean was professional, friendly and knowledgeable from the moment I met him during our initial consultation, right through to the day of surgery and the follow up consultations. He answered all my questions and concerns and also discussed risks regarding the procedure, that were specific to me as an individual. Mr McLean successfully repaired the ptosis condition, which had previously been unsuccessfully treated by another consultant. Two months post operation and I'm almost fully recovered, with less then 1mm difference between the affected eye and the non affected eye, so all in all a very pleasing and impressive result from Mr McClean.
