    As mentioned earlier, he’s a great doctor but needs to inform patients when he’s doing something snd it has an extra charge. He never told me and I had a surprise at the bill

    Mr Shaida was pleasant, kind and very reassuring about my concerns. The appointment lasted 20 minutes, and I was advised I could be reviewed at no extra cost if I was worried about the problem changing over the next 2-3 months. I found this very comforting.
