Patient Testimonial

Thank you for the Consultation in your rooms yesterday at Kingsbridge and for the courtesies extended to me during my visit.
Apologies as I should have told you how pleased I am with the results and how it has relieved, no disappeared, the sciatic style pain I've had for a year or more in my left hip, and given me back some of the mobility I was used to.  
Also, to say thanks for your skill and professionalism, and attention to detail, in achieving such a good result for me.

Sciatic patient, June 2021
