I am so grateful for the professionalism Dr Petrarca has performed on my Trabeculectomy in both my eyes. His gentleness assurance and efficiently gives one confidence when one is frightened. He spends time explaining the procedure in spite of his very heavy work load and the success he has achieved I am eternally grateful for.

I have been treated by Mr Petrarca for cataracts in both eyes. Nine months previously my wife followed the same path. Throughout we were treated with enormous courtesy by the whole team. At the pre and post op consultations we were not rushed and every question was answered to our satisfaction, often this involved a simple sketch to help explain. Mr Petrarca’s friendly but professional approach gave us both supreme confidence. All our procedures went well and our faltering vision has now been restored to youthful clarity. When finally discharged we were left with the feeling that Mr Petrarca was as pleased as us at the positive outcome.
