    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    I'm a competitive tennis player and play on the ITF Masters Tour. Back in February I ruptured the biceps tendon in my racket arm and was naturally very concerned about being able to play again at the same level. Due to Mr Tavakkolizadeh's skill as a surgeon and his outstanding rehab advice I was back on court within four months. Even better I won a national title, just five months after surgery. Mr Tavakkolizadeh is not just a highly skilled surgeon but an inspirational figure who convinced me that a return to competitive tennis was possible.
