“The service provided by Mr Felipe Dhawahir-Scala was excellent from start to finish. He is extremely approachable and he listened to my explanation of my previous problems with my eye, explained his diagnosis well and the procedure required to rectify the problem. The surgery went extremely smoothly thanks to him and his team. Post operative care was excellent and he made himself available to contact in the event of any problem or anxiety I had. Overall the process was extremely good and I was reassured throughout. “

    I was extremely nervous meeting Mr Scala as I had had a very bad experience with other eye surgeries. He immediately made me feel at ease and explained the situation and the surgery in depth and in a very friendly, caring manner. I was nervous prior to surgery but again, i was made to feel at ease and had very confidence in both his ability and prognosis. I have had no issues since my surgery, my recovery was really good and everything happened exactly as he said it would. Mr Scala made me feel like an individual he wanted to help, not just a patient with problems. I am glad he did my surgery

    I found Mr Scala very easy to talk to about my eye condition. He is both caring, informative, supportive and a highly qualified ophthalmic surgeon. I was very nervous about the first procedure I had, but I needn't have been, and certainly won't be for my second procedure.

    I was a very nervous patient with great doubts about cataract surgery required for both my eyes. Mr Scala proved to be an excellent surgeon. His outstanding skill and care ensured that I felt in very safe hands. I appreciated the clear and reassuring explanation of the procedure, and his openness to my many questions. He was also very supportive post op. with thorough follow-up consultations. Mr Scala’s warmth and kindness are also notable attributes. I truly cannot recommend him more highly.
