Was a really positive experience, my technical/medical questions were answered clearly. Was engaged/informed at all stages. At ease to ask any questions at any time. Having other eye conditions, the covering experience of the surgeon was paramount in my choice. Provided a brilliant level of care making me feel at ease throughout my consultations, on the day of my surgery, throughout the procedure, and post care, as did the staff who supported him. The results and aftercare have also been brilliant. I am very happy that I selected and chose Mr Felipe Dhawahir-Scala. I felt that I was in good hands throughout my whole experience. I would definitely recommend to others.

After being totally let down by Blackpool Victoria Hospital, Mr Dhawahir-Scala performed an operation on my detached retina the very day I went to see him as an urgent case. Throughout the whole experience he has been absolutely fantastic, optimistic and calming. He has since performed a couple more procedures which were necessary as a result of circumstances and has always been upbeat and has brilliant people skills.
