“Lyndon Mason explained everything to me and took his time to go through my whole treatment plan. He also personally took me to the xray department in a wheelchair and went out of his way to find a physio to assist me with fitting my walking boot. I thought i would be in plaster for at least 6 weeks but he had me in a walking boot and weight bearing 5 days after my accident which has made ny home life a lot easier with my 6 month old. His positive outlook is exactly what is needed in these situations “
