Bedside Manner
Dr Aboshoha took the time to listen to me and asked me specific questions about my symptoms. As he examined me he explained what he was doing. He explained what he felt the diagnosis was and why he felt it was so. I had been to two very well known eye hospitals in London and they were not able to diagnose me correctly. Dr Aboshiha took the time to listen and I felt at last we can start treating the issue.
