“My 90 year old mother said she felt she was treated like Royalty. Mr Goel put her at ease and took the time to answer all her questions in a way she could easily process and understand. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The improvement to her vision far exceeded her expectations. “

    Explanation

    I visited the eye correction surgery a few months ago and was worried about the procedure that was going to take place due to risks I had read up on. Mr Goel was beyond helpful and would go above and beyond to explain each procedure that was available to me and was extremely knowledgeable on all procedures. This put my mind completely at ease so that I felt confident that I was ‘in good hands’ on the day. I opted for ‘smile’ eye surgery and was told that this treatment can not always guarantee 100% perfect vision which I was happy with as the treatment was less invasive. The procedure couldn’t have gone any better and my eye sight is now perfect, with very little down time. I would recommend the Spire Hull Hesslewood clinic and Mr Goel, they were great. Thankyou 🙏🏼

    When my optician told me I would need cataract surgery before too long I decided not to wait. Having any operation is always cause for concern, someone operating on ones eye, all the more so. The initial consultation was very thorough and the various lens options clearly explained. Dr Goel and his colleague put me very much at ease. My first eye operation is successful and it was Dr, Goel's opinion that my other eye did not need the operation for a year or two. I have taken his advice and appreciate his professionalism.

    I can only speak that Mr Sid Goel treated myself extremely well. After having my eyes operated on for cataracts three years ago by Mr Goel, recently I visited him as my sight was not as good as it should be. He said that they needed laser treatment, he duly treated them and my sight is A1 again. I owe Mr Goel a big thank you for all he has done for me.
