We are very happy with the service you provide. Our physio is warm and friendly with my daughter and has been very thoughtful in providing her with exercises she can do at home. She took photos of my daughter doing her stretches and thought through how she could incorporate them into her daily routine, sending us the photos with descriptions to pin up on the walls to remind her. Fantastic! Thank you.

Katalin is delightful and very helpful.
My feedback is very positive as Becky was able to diagnose my issue, and she has really helped me to understand what the problem is and how I can rectify the issue. Since seeing Becky I've been doing the exercises she gave me and I'm certainly seeing an improvement each day. Becky is a really nice person and very knowledgable around balance issues, so I'm really glad I got to see her rather than waiting weeks on the NHS.
