    I had approached Dr Hove to get a pigmentation in my eye removed. This had been a long insecurity of mine which affected my confidence a lot. When I met Dr Hove he assured that this pigmented nevus would be removed via the Argon laser thermoplasty of conjuctival nevus procedure. He was very gentle and assuring throughout the entire surgery process. My nevus was completely removed by the laser process alone. I sent him a picture of my eye a week after and my eye is white again and my confidence back on track. I will highly recommend Dr Hove if they too have an insecurity regarding any pigmentation in their eyes.

    I cannot recommend Dr Hove enough! A down to earth, easy to talk to doctor with a wonderful bedside manner. Mr Hove puts you at ease from the minute you sit down in a consultation room with him, he will explain everything fully (in a language us layman’s can actually understand), and advise the best course of treatment. I honestly cannot tell you how refreshing it is to meet such a lovely, yet knowledgeable doctor. Eternally grateful for the kindness and the excellent care I received from Mr Hove.

    This was an initial consultation with Mr Hove, he was very thorough and could not have been more helpful and reassuring. He went to great lengths to explain the procedure and was keen to answer any questions that I had.

    Mr Hove is a driven, caring and highly accomplished ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. I would gladly have him treat my friends and family. He makes surgery look easy, but this is testament to his training at world renowned institutions including Moorfields Eye Hospital. His ability combined with confidence and approachability make him an excellent colleague to work with and someone who I would highly recommend. He takes pride in the quality of his work and always seeks opportunities to train eye surgeons of the future.
