"Care at Eastern Health-Lilydale"

About: Yarra Ranges Health

(as the patient),

I have had 2 cataract surgeries. The doctor explained clearly before the operation, what the procedure would involve, putting me quite at ease prior to the operation. The operating staff then proceeded to prep me for the operation, which was quite painless and quick, and the staff were fantastic.
