Congratulations Malcolm Mckellar!
Eye Specialist Dr. Malcolm McKellar is this month's winner of a Business Hero Award.
He was nominated by Cathy McFadden:
"Being an eye surgeon is not just a job for Malcolm it’s his passion.
I wasn’t just a client to him, after suffering for 6 months with a severe eye tear, suffering for weeks on end losing my quality of life and the chronic mental torture and depression this injury forced on me countless visits to the hospital and no one could fix me.
I walked into his office off the street and basically said take my eye out. Well that was yet another 6 months ago, I am sitting here today the person I was a year ago thanks to the kindness patience and care I never thought possible could come from any person in the medical field.
It’s not been an easy ride for me nor Malcolm or his lovely wife, she also had to put up with the tears in the middle of some nights, the weekends.
He was attending a conference out of town one weekend I was in trouble and had to ring him. Within 10 minutes he rang me back and had set up a visit with a trusted colleague of his at the hospital.
Not only did he do this but his colleague had to ring while I was there and tell him what was going on with my eye this happened twice.
It’s now 3 weeks after my surgery and Cathy’s back. My confidence, my trauma and depression in my life has gone, I have my life back. The words “thank you Malcolm” simply aren’t enough. You are not just a surgeon.
I thank you and will never forget your compassion, kindness, and patience".
Congratulations Dr. Malcolm McKellar!
