Fax: +963 11 6668188

14. Do you limit your services to people of a certain height?

15. What is your policy for people who are suffering from depression or some other mental health issue,
or have suffered from it in the past?

A history of depression is not necessarily a problem, but the history will need to be discussed and evaluated on a case by case basis. A history of mental illness is almost always a disqualification, but I may make rare exceptions if I have reason to believe that it will not be a problem.

I have disqualified candidates in the past over mental health issues, and it is not something that I take lightly. A successful experience requires dedication and mental toughness, and I won't operate on someone who I think will struggle mentally.

16. Is there any other information that you would like to have included?
All other information can seen on my web site Further questions will be answered by E-mail.
