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.
