    I found Miss Hawkes to be very approachable, kind and very professional. I was able to call or e-Mail if I had any concerns and she would always reply as soon as possible. My recovery from my surgery was longer than I expected, mostly due to severe swelling, but Miss Hawkes reassured me that all the issues would settle in time. Now everything has settled, I am very satisfied with the surgery and would highly recommend Miss Hawkes to anyone considering eye surgery.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    From the very start of my consultation, I felt that I had made the right decision with my choice of consultant. Ms Hawkes’ expertise and professionalism coupled with a warm and reassuring ‘bedside manner’ put me immediately at ease and I felt confident in taking the next steps to have blepharoplasty and ptosis repair. Throughout the procedure and follow up consultation, Ms Hawkes’ calm professionalism made the entire process so much easier for me and I felt throughout that I was in extremely capable and experienced hands. Making the decision to have surgery wasn’t one I made lightly and I gave it serious consideration before taking the first step. I am delighted that I I chose Ms Hawkes for all the reasons I’ve mentioned, I had my surgery just over 12 days ago and although I am still healing, I can already see an improvement with my eyes. It was important for me to find someone who was not only an expert in their field but also with the care and attention that is reassuring for a patient; I received all of this with Ms Hawkes and for that I am extremely grateful and would have no hesitation in offering a recommendation.
