Explanation
Bedside Manner
Overall a very positive experience and Mr Felipe Dhawahir-Scala's investigation was very thorough. However, I was referred to an additional consultant who disagreed with the initial potential diagnosis (although, it was made clear to me by Mr Scala, it was necessary to see a Orbital specialist for further investigation as this was not his speciality). Overall the referral wasn't necessary and resulted in unnecessary expense. Overall a good outcome for me in terms of diagnosis albeit the extra expense. In retrospect, I did appreciate Mr Scala's thorough review in terms of his speciality in Retina issues - and that these could be ruled out from the diagnosis. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Scala.

The most amazing surgeon. Mr Scala has an attention to detail that in my experience is beyond compare. He has completely rectified all the problems I was experiencing with ‘floaters’ and has exemplary follow up care.

Mr Felipe Dhawahir-Scala’s approach is always very professional. Whenever I visit the hospital for an eye examination he puts me at ease. He is interested in all aspects of my health. He tells me exactly what he is going to do before he proceeds. I consider myself very fortunatel to have had eye surgery undertaken by him in 2012. Over these past 7 years my confidence in his ability to offer excellent care, has remained consistent throughout; overall a very positive experience.
