    I would like to thank Dr Jones and his team for their help with my rehab from sports injury. It had been several months since initial injury and my foot was getting worse, so I rang to make an appointment at his Nuffield clinic. Appointment was booked within a few days. The Diagnosis, treatment and advice he provided allowed me to continue working and I’m gradually returning to sport. An excellent service.

    Dr Jones was very friendly and approachable during our sessions. On my first visit he did a thorough examination and organised tests to confirm the diagnosis and then came up with a detailed plan to allow me to return to running. Whenever I had questions I felt able to ask and always got a detailed and informed answer. I would recommend Dr Jones to others

    Explanation (5/5)

    The key advantage for seeing Dr Jones is that together you do all things possible before moving on to discuss any surgical procedures. In my case, I was able to relieve the condition by specific strength and conditioning work alongside a physiotherapist. You still get insight from scans and tests, but then if you have a weak area or general poor condition that's made clear as a potential cause.
