I have found physiocomestoyou to not only be excellent in their discipline but to also be reliable. I have been seen regularly for the last 3 years by them in my nursing home to work at maintaining my independence for as long as possible and recommend highly to anyone wanting the same. They are adaptable to each individuals situation and can see you at times that work for you.

We are very pleased with the service and everybody we have had contact with has been very helpful and polite. My husband is paralysed and community physio's do not seem to have the specialist knowledge to address his needs or can only provide 6 sessions without re referral from a GP which is not enough to show results. We are having to self fund this service on limited income so unfortunately we may only be able to use the service for a limited period. Otherwise we are very happy with the service.
