Mr Clough is very knowledgable about all things foot and ankle. He is extremely approachable, explaining everything in layman’s terminology, he answered all of my questions, demonstrating with his model skeletal foot for a good understanding of the procedure conducted.
Mr Clough I find approachable friendly and listens effectively to the nature and symptoms of my ankle injury. Further analysis/investigation involved x-rays and MRI scans which Illustrated clearly the injury to my ankle. Mr Clough took the time to ensure I was able to understand what the investigation information meant . Mr Clough’s patience in taking the time to answer my questions / concerns regarding medical choices left me confident and fully informed about the best option available for my ankle. Following his professional advice enabled me to get back to a more active lifestyle. Mr Clough and his team have a positive caring attitude and made me feel valued as a person. This I feel is very important when you feel vulnerable and concerned over which health option is the right choice. Certainly it’s been the best health care I’ve experienced and would very highly recommend Mr Clough and the orthopaedic team.
Excellent, clearly explained the issue and how he felt it would be best addressed.
Very informative, explained exactly how things would go and recover.
