Patient Reviews
Jul 07, 2024
I had some cosmetic ye surgery to improve vision and remove bags. Aside from having to wait a little while to get into see Dr Howard (the best usually are a little booked up), the treatment and support were first rate. Dr Howard responded quickly to concerns and provided excellent follow-up advice. His whole staff (particularly Sam) were great.
