Our philosophy is to treat patients as we would wish to be treated ourselves – with expertise, care, professionalism, respect and discretion in every aspect of our practice.
Consultations are by appointment only.
All procedures require a referral from your doctor or optometrist. For cosmetic procedures you will have an initial and then a follow up consultation to ensure that you and your surgeon are both satisfied that any questions are answered to your full satisfaction, and all the required information is clearly understood.
We realise that your time is valuable and we aim to run our consulting sessions to time. From time to time however unexpected delays can occur. This is one of the reasons as much information as possible is obtained at your initial telephone call for an appointment.
This helps our staff to allocate the appropriate time to your consultation. Call our friendly staff on 08 8353 6768 to discuss your needs. Consultation requests or enquiries can also be made after hours with our easy and secure online forms.
