“I am an optometrist and as such had heard of Mr Patton’s expertise and I have now experienced it for myself. Not only are his clinical skills second to none but he also has excellent communication skills and bedside manner (sadly lacking in others). I had no worries at all whilst being under his care. “

    Mr Patton is excellent. He has provided detailed but clear explanations to me regarding my condition and advised me of the pros and cons, every step of the way. He is extremely professional, but also friendly and approachable and has willingly answered the many questions that I have had. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.
