“My overall experience with Dr Aturia was second to none. She was absolutely amazing and I cannot fault her at all. She not only rectified the problems with my back to the best they could be with the treatment/surgery I was given but also supported me through my mental state. My back issues had a huge impact on my well-being due the constant pain I was in. However she was 100% committed to both supporting me with my back but also getting me back on track mentally. She was also polite, showed empathy and generally cared. Fantastic lady! “

    Patient seen for:
    I went to see Dr Aturia after suffering from severe chest and back pain for several years. She was sympathetic and highly professional and recommended I try new treatments such as hydrotherapy, combined with psychological support. She listened carefully and patiently to my quite complex medical history, and gave me excellent advice about a way forward. An absolute pleasure to deal with, and her secretary Lesley is equally pleasant, professional and efficient. Highly recommended!
