“I was at all times happy with my experience. I found Mr Henderson to be personable and approachable. I had total confidence in his expertise as a surgeon and appreciated his explanations and clarification of my eye condition . He was also very obliging when unfortunately I was unavoidably quite late for an appointment, I am very pleased with the end result of my surgery “

When I first met Mr Henderson I was in shock. I had been referred by my optician after attending for a routine sight test and needed macular eye surgery. From the moment I met Mr Henderson he gave me great confidence. He explained the procedures and the risks clearly. I knew what he was going to do and what was expected of me. He was always professional but with a ‘human touch’. He listened to my fears and worries, explained things and reassured me. I have no hesitation in awarding him five stars!

Mr Henderson has been excellent with my son who had been diagnosed with Cataracts, From the moment we met Mr Henderson he gave us great support and made my nervous son feel at ease and comfortable throughout check ups and operations that was carried out . On both operations on my son I have felt very confident that he was in very safe hands to which he was and we could not of ask for a better doctor. I have emailed Mr Henderson with concerns and his prompt reply put my mind at ease. I am very happy with the outcome of both surgery's and very happy that he received the best possible care. I would highly recommend Mr Henderson.
