I had surgery in June to repair a macular hole in my eye following a fall. From my initial inquiry I was treated in a professional and respectful manner. The administration staff answered all my questions and their friendly manner really helped me feel confident that I had made the right decision in going to Cathedral. The surgery was carried out by Dr. Best and his team and again I felt I was in safe hands. I am pleased to say my surgery went well. It took a few weeks to recover, but at my final review Dr. best showed me my initial scan, which showed the break in my macular, and the review scans that showed it healed. Such great new and I cannot thank Dr. Best and his team enough
