Currently working as a Corneal Fellow at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Victor completed registrar training in the West Midlands. He has an interest in cornea, glaucoma and overseas ophthalmology. He is passionate about providing excellent patient care and experience. He has completed a PhD on trachoma with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine after living in Tanzania for 3 years. Victor was the lead coordinator of the Vision2020 Link Programme between the eye units at University Hospitals Birmingham and Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre in Tanzania between 2012-16.
Even though he has the most awesome name, he's an even better Doctor. But seriously, Dr Hu has been treating me on and off for the last 6 months for a serious eye condition and he is a fantastic doctor. From initial consultation, to hospital admission, right through to current ongoing treatment Dr Hu is always professional, friendly, knowledgeable and honest. He always make me feel at ease and comfortable and answers all my questions without hesitation. I cannot thank his enough for the time he has given to help make my sight better and if you ever need an eye scrape (hopefully you won't!) then he's definitely your man!
Mr Hu took the time to listen to me and throughly examined my eyes. I was discharged from the clinic and was given advice on what to do in the future.
Asked relevant questions, my case notes could not be found I had temporary notes, Mr Hu very clear explained everything he was doing, checked my pressure I have glaucoma hoping I might be able to stop using drops. My pressure higher than he would have wanted said to continue with drops. Very thorough, clear and precise. Would be very happy to see Mr Hu again but unfortunately not always seen by same member staff.
It was nice to see a doctor who challenged the previous doctors diagnosis'. I've had an on-going eye issue that hasn't been properly diagnosed and I kept getting the same responses everytime I went to the hospital. Mr Hu listened to my symptoms and did a thorough examination and came to his own conclusions. I am hopeful this new diagnosis is the correct one but only time will tell with my new treatments. Mr Hu was very reassuring and I felt at ease in his care. He was very easy to talk to and explained everything has he went. He also said I can get in touch to monitor how well the treatment is going so we know if this is the right medication/drops for me. Probably one of the most helpful appointments I've had for a long while.
