Below is some recent patient feedback:
‘Very approachable extremely professional and knowledgeable Caring, gentle and no question was unanswered. Listened to all concerns, advised regarding best course of action with full explanations along the way. Put at ease throughout both cataract procedures, felt very calm and safe. Amazing admin support from PA, all calls answered and/or returned in timely fashion, nothing felt like too much trouble.’

‘Mr.Gangwani has always been so kind & patient. I have been seeing him for a number of years, firstly after a nasty accident to my right eye, & more recently with cataract & lens replacement to both eyes. Mr.Gangwani was always very positive there would be a good result & he certainly didn't disappoint me. He has a very nice manner & talked me through whilst he operated on each eye under local anaesthetic. I am so thrilled with the results after the cataract/lense replacement I can't praise him highly enough.’
