“This is what a five star medical practice looks like!

I went for cataract surgery yesterday by the amazing Dr Finestone. I have to congratulate all concerned for the efficiency, cleanliness, excellent nurses and support staff and an amazing theatre experience. This is what a 5 star medical practice looks like. Thank you to Dr Finestone for his professional and caring manner.”
