"Kind, caring and thorough."

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary / Ophthalmology

(as the patient),

I visited the Ophthalmology Dept after suffering sudden temporary total blindness in both eyes. Mr Kostakis and his staff were very thorough and even though my eyes came out with a clean bill of health after being examined by no less than 4 Drs, I was still refered to a Neurologist as it was suspected I had MS.

The Drs and nurses were wonderful and coped admirably with the massive numbers of patients they had waiting. The service flowed well and was with military precision. I was seen by a nurse (for eye chart tests) whilst waiting for my allotted appointment time so as not to create a backlog.

110% to all the staff at DRI, I haven't found a bad one yet!
