I was extremely pleased with Maria Kanaki; she was very calming during what was often quite challenging treatment, particularly at the start, and found her to be extremely effective and beneficial during my recovery. Always very prompt for the appointments and we were very happy to have her in our home. I will certainly let Mr Jonathan Webb [Orthopaedic Surgeon] know how well your practice works and how pleased I am with the results and service you offer. Thank you very much.
