I am an experienced consultant ophthalmologist, able to see you without delay in quiet, clean, comfortable consulting rooms. The consultation will be without interruption, at an appointment date and time to suit you. I offer an efficient, specialist, friendly and discreet service. Your appointment and treatment will always be with me: this ensures a trusted continuity of clinical care from your first presentation until the satisfactory and successful conclusion of your treatment. The Albyn Hospital is situated in the middle of Aberdeen, close to the city centre, bus and train stations; free parking is available at the Hospital. Eye surgery is performed at the Albyn in a clean, modern and purpose-built surgical operating theatre – one of three – using new and state-of-the-art ophthalmic surgical equipment.
