Mr. Sherafat was very professional and dealt with my many questions competently and patiently. On the day of the operation, he again advised me of any problems that could occur but was also extremely positive about the op itself. He put me at ease and I felt I was in extremely capable hands. In the follow up appointment, Mr Sherafat was again informative and patient and very thorough in checking my eye.

The care I received from Mr Sherafat at the New Victoria Hospital was excellent. Everyone I met at the hospital were friendly and helpful. Mr Sherafat took time to fully explain the procedure to me on our first consultation and then gave me a very useful fact sheet to help me make my decision as to whether have blepharoplasty. One the day of my surgery Mr Sherafat again talked through the operation and gave me confidence that all would go well. On discharge from hospital Mr Sherafat also gave me some notes on how to care for my eyes and what to expect during my post operative recovery. One week later Mr Sherafat removed my stitches and I was very pleased with the results. I would recommend Mr Sherafat to anyone considering a similar operation.

I had a bad experience with and following my first cataract operation some years ago (NOT with Mr Sherafat), so I was anxious when I came to approach my second. Coming recommended by my ophthalmologist, Mr Sherafat recognised my concerns and through his explanations, patience and reassurance - and appropriate anaesthetic - the outcome was as comfortable and relaxed as I could have hoped for. This included his reacting to and dealing with concerns that I had a couple of days following the operation. I'd go back to him if I had further problems with my eyes.

No operation is pleasant, particularly if done under local anaesthetic when you know exactly what is going on at all times, but Mr Holman explained everything as he went along and was very caring and professional during both cataract procedures. Mr Hooman’s Secretary was also very efficient and helpful. The after care was excellent and informative as well. Highly recommended.
