"Our twelve month old son had a "squint " which was successfully corrected by Dr Jain using Botox treatment. My wife and I were given immense comfort ahead of the procedure by Dr Jain who gave both clear explanation of the short term side affects which disappeared as he detailed, together with summary medical literature on the recent high success rates of this action on young children. We are delighted with the outcome".
