If you have recently been diagnosed with an eye problem you may want to have more time with an eye specialist to discuss the diagnosis. Hospital outpatient departments can be very busy and the staff who saw you may not have had time to fully explain the nature of the disease and future outlook for you. Diagnosis of a new chronic eye disease can cause worry. You may have unanswered questions about the nature of the eye disease or you may want a second opinion.
During a private appointment with Mr Mahmood you will be given ample opportunity to discuss your problem and also advise you if you are seeking a second opinion. Mr Mahmood’s main eye specialities are retinal disease and cataract surgery. However with the benefit of a strong background in general ophthalmology and the latest updates in eye disease you can use your consultation time to discuss his independent professional opinion. A second opinion may help you understand your disease better. Surgery on any part of the body for any reason can be a major decision and you may want a second opinion to discuss the potential benefits and risks in more detail.
You may also have an elderly relative who needs assistance during a consultation and may not be able to ask all the relevant questions themselves. Family members sometimes struggle to attend during normal working hours. With Mr Mahmood you would have the flexibility of appointments in the daytime, evening or Saturday so you can attend with your relatives and talk through things in more detail.
If you want a medical view on new developments you have heard about or read in the media an appointment can be made for discussion and whether they are of relevance for your particular disease. If in doubt use the online enquiry form on this website with a brief description of your problem. Medical advice cannot be given via this form but you can arrange a consultation to discuss things further. If it would be more appropriate Mr Mahmood can advise you of other colleagues or institutions in the UK who would be able to help you further.
