I recently completed my GMC revalidation and I am glad to report that my cataract complication rate is significantly lower than the national consultant average. 99% of my patients are very happy with their visual outcomes following cataract surgery, which provides me with a lot of satisfaction as well. Please refer to my website www.paviagrawal.co.uk for positive patient testimonials.
My glaucoma outcomes are also above international reported outcomes and I gain a high level of success in many of my patients.
