Ivan has a very professional & relaxed manner & the treatment was excellent-the chronic back pain I had has not recurred. I have never felt so relaxed & well for a long time. I am only sorry I don't live here but will book to see Ivan again when we are next in the area. Also Dorota was very helpful & understanding in arranging a same day appointment for me. You run a very good service & I am so glad I found it.
Eva was a big help and I appreciate her being able to come- we were just visiting London and I have been continuing to do the stretches she showed me while I'm Scotland.

Lesley came to see Dad on Saturday. She arrived on time and was cheerful and upbeat throughout the meeting. She took time to understand the circumstances and went through a number of questions and tests with Dad to ensure that she knew what needed to be addressed. She checked the bathroom and bedroom too to make sure that he had the right equipment and made contact with the GP surgery on Monday to ask for an Oocupational Health Visit. On hearing that Dad had been taken into hospital, she got in touch to pass on her best wishes and to let us know she was there to help if needed when he is discharged. All in all she was very pleasant, easy to get on with, confident and competent. She really made you feel that Dad would be looked after and it was a really refreshing change to have a health professional who was easy to deal with.

Thanks for your help last night Srikanth. I'm feeling a lot better today. Thank you.
My physio was very professional and thorough with her diagnosis, treatment and aftercare. Physiocomestoyou was a personal recommendation from a colleague. My initial draw was the fact she worked very flexible hours. I could be seen for my appointment at 7am every week which meant limited time was lost at work. She was quick in identifying a muscular impingement in my left shoulder. A series of sessions helped cure the problem. I was extremely impressed with the service and highly recommend Physiocomestoyou. I am now pain free!!
