Mr Shanmuganathan discussed the surgical procedure he would perform on me and gave me reassurance and confidence going ahead with the operation on my right eye cataract. His clear communication between himself and the medical staff added to a successful outcome for me. He is polite, kind and helpful. He is doing an excellent job a credit to Kingston Hospital and the NHS overall. Well done and congratulations Vijay, Kingston Hospital and the NHS. I Thank you very much for your hard work and dedication to us the wider community who use the NHS. Now I can once again see the colourful word with my right eye. Excellent performance.
