Mr Taherian's overall approach was very professional. He kept me informed at each stage of the process and responded to all questions clearly and in as much detail as I required. Operations, especially on the eyes, can be stressful times but Mr Taherian's calm, confident manner left me relaxed and with the feeling that I could trust his abilities and judgement.
