What Dr Parmar's patients say about him

I want to express my gratitude to the team and Mr Parmar for performing an incredibly life-changing operation. I am able to see perfectly as I have never seen before. The crisp, clear and accurate vision to wake up to every morning is nothing short of a miracle.
