The arrangements for payment are a bit convoluted involving the need to return to the ground floor in the middle of the appointment. It would be better to pay, when you first arrive or at the end of the appointment

I saw a number of specialists for my eye problem. It was not until I receive treatment from Mr. Patel that I am confident that my problem with Macular Degeneration is being treated very well. He is a top specialist in his field and a kind person.
