Mr Trushar Patel
26th August 2020
I was seen by Mr Patel for the first time in May and was very impressed with how thorough he was. I also received a copy of the letter he sent to my GP within a week of my appointment which was very detailed and really useful to have. I received a follow up appointment in August in spite of the COVID-19 situation and Mr Patel warning me that it might be delayed, and was again impressed with the way Mr Patel explained everything and listened to my questions and answered them. He was pleasant and approachable. I was slightly concerned about visiting a hospital at the moment but found James Cook University Hospital to be well organised, very clean and with clear signage and people to guide you. The Ophthalmology Department was excellent, very well organised for the current COVID-19 situation and with very friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely recommend Mr Patel as an eye specialist and following his advice and treatment my eye condition has improved.
