I was recommended to see Mr Gupta at the Spire and I am pleased I did. Mr Gupta put me completely at my ease and took a lot of time explaining the procedures for my 2 cataract operations. The care and attention I received was exemplary. and I am very pleased with the results.

I had cataract surgery with Dr Gupta in early Dec 2022. I would have no qualms about recommending him to potential patients : he was very thorough during the consultations and reassuringly professional during the operation.

My treatment seems to have been entirely successful despite a slightly increased risk in my case. Mr Gupta explained my options clearly at the start and helped me decide.During the procedure, he regularly explained progress, checked how I felt and adjusted anaesthetic accordingly
