What Ms Belovari’s patients say about her

"From the moment I walked through the door, I just felt genuinely really looked after, really reassured. They’re just a really, really good team of people who understand that it’s a big decision, and they honestly help you through every step of it. It’s much, much easier than you think, and much quicker, and I could literally instantly see clearer than I had ever seen before."
