Mr Hove is an outstanding surgeon and ophthalmologist. I have trained with him for many years and his commitment, energy and upfront nature make him standout among his peers. He is a very reliable and trustworthy opinion.
Mr Hove is a driven, caring and highly accomplished ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. I would gladly have him treat my friends and family. He makes surgery look easy, but this is testament to his training at world renowned institutions including Moorfields Eye Hospital. His ability combined with confidence and approachability make him an excellent colleague to work with and someone who I would highly recommend. He takes pride in the quality of his work and always seeks opportunities to train eye surgeons of the future.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mr Hove. He is an excellent surgeon with excellent surgical outcomes. His patients are his biggest advocates. He transforms lives every day with his surgical ability and has an excellent manner with patients. He works tirelessly to do this and will stop at nothing to give patients the best.
Very skilful with his craft and exceptional eye surgeon!
