    Mr Hussain explained my contract operation very clearly so nothing was a surprise. All my appointments have been very professional handled but also Mr Hussian speaks with a lightness to ease any concerns. On the day of my first operation I very pleased that I saw him very quickly after arrived in the hospital. He checked all the measurements to reassure me as I wear contact lenses I was concerned that they may have effected the measurements. The two operations itself were very efficient. Mr Hussain explained each stage very well both before hand and during the operation. He also gave timings for how much longer the operation would take. Mr Hussain had a very good team around him who obliviously all knew the procedure and were very quick and efficient.

    My initial cataract review with Mr Hussain was comprehensive, easy to understand and he was sensitive to a prevailing arthritis condition that I have, which makes it difficult to remain still for any length of time. We discussed options around anaesthetic and he provided assurance that he could deliver the surgery I needed regardless of whichever option I chose.

    Mr Hussain put me at ease from the first appointment, and I immediately felt he had my best interests at the forefront of planning my care. He clearly explained options, and the procedures and listened to my concerns and outcome views. During the first operation he explained what he was doing which was very reassuring., making the experience easier to manage, and the second operation a much less daunting experience.

    Mr Hussain was very thorough in his explanations and examination. He took the time to gauge what was important to me following surgery and detailed the various options clearly including any potential downsides.
