Very helpful and professional, good detailed responses to all of my questions and was thorough in analysis.
Great bedside manner, caring and friendly doctor. Treatments were explained clearly and always felt in safe hands
Excellent care and very knowledgeable
I had been seeing other physios and specialists to deal with my ongoing problem and it only improved after seeing Dr Malagelada. It had become very debilitating as I'm an active person but he found what was causing the problem and more importantly organised the right treatment. I'm back to the gym now and very grateful to Dr Malagelada.
Very helpful in explaining and diagnosing my injury, and he managed to get everything I needed to be completed in one day.
Francesc is first of all a very nice guy that put you at ease, very easy to talk with, clear in all his explanations, gives you all the time to explain and does a proper follow up always showing a genuine interest. Professionally seems very well prepared, and when you need scans, physio etc he has people to suggest which have been proven to be equally well prepared, easy to talk with. I would definitely recommend
Francesc has a calm and attentive manner. Always felt I was getting the best possible care and very safe in his hands
What a brilliant doctor and attentive professional. His expertise is evident and his care has been second to none. I was referred to him and I am delighted with the treatment provided. My ankle had been playing up for months and I was unable to run painfree. He did keyhole surgery and repaired my torn ligament – back to running and painfree! Thank you Mr Malagelada
My consultations with Mr Malagelada were great, super informative and very helpful. My injury was confirmed swiftly and I was sent for a scan and follow up treatment immediately. The entire process was very efficient and Mr Malagelada was a great support throughout. Many thanks.
I had an excellent experience with Dr Malagelada. He provided detailed information for me pre and post op and his team were always in contact with me regarding follow ups as necessary. My recovery is going very well and I am very happy I had my procedure done with him.
