Dr Morar diagnosed my rare illness instantaneously and treated it! I have seen him about other stuff too. He is always really gentle and kind and sensitive.

Mr. Dinneen is the epitome of everything a top class, yet genuinely caring professional should be. His work ethic is frankly extraordinary, bordering almost on the superhuman. He is both a credit to his profession and a truly delightful man.
Mr Dinneen was excellent, I highly recommend him. My surgery with him went without a hitch and I am here to tell the tale.
