“He is simply the best. All my stress, worry and nerves from previous experiences disappeared on my first meeting with Mr Obholzer. He spotted what had been missed, explained in detail and in terms I understood what was wrong, my treatment options and acted quickly to get my surgery underway. He carried out my operation, visited me afterwards and explained post-op side-effects and follow-up. Excellent and professional. “
