    Mr Ieong was exceptional, very professional, introduced himself and put me at ease ready for the consultation. He was detailed and thorough with his examination of my feet problems. Mr Ieong explained the possible problems throughout and suggested the next steps in a very informative way. Mr Ieong listened to all the issues I described with both feet and gave me encouragement that with the necessary imaging information at my second consultation he would be able to identify and offer a solution to the painful problems that I am experiencing continually.
