Simon has found the answer to a sinus condition I have suffered with for forty years where other experts have failed. By a careful process of testing, examination and discussion he was able to isolate the cause and prescribe an effective treatment. It makes a huge difference to finally understand the underlying cause and have a plan you can be confident will deal with it. The impact on my overall quality of life is significant.
