“I found my experience with Mr Lloyd Bender to be very good. He listened carefully to what I told him, and he was very thorough in his examination of my eyes. The copy of his letter to my GP arrived within 24 hours.“

    Although the first time we met him at hospital the visit he performed was accurate and he reassured us about a not painful eye issue of our baby, the second time (privately this time and just few weeks later) he had a complete different behaviour and manners. He was not able to visit our baby, was in a hurry and told us an opposite (bad) scenario (denied later). He also did not give us the first meeting letter and it seems there is no way to get it now. I would not recommend him.

    Had an excellent appointment with Mr Bender about my 5 month old daughters squint. He was clinically very thorough and gave me a detailed explanation and reassurance. I was also amazed how he managed to keep my daughter relaxed and happily entertained throughout the examination with his calm and fun manner.

    Dr Bender made my 4 year old boy feel comfortable and welcome from the start. My boy enjoyed the time throughout the visit, cooperated well and at times forgotten that this was a medical appointment. He thought reading letters was a competition or a task. Dr Bender praised his answers and that made him super-happy. He also enjoyed little lama torches and a little chit-chat. Def recommend Dr Bender for little patients (and for bigger ones too, I am sure).
