    Mr Arvin made me feel instantly comfortable at my first appointment. He was kind, polite, respectful and he listened carefully to my problem and did not rush me at any point. He had an extremely caring nature and I left my appointment feeling much calmer and clear about what steps I needed to take.

    Did a great job. Raised the quality of my life. Only some pins and needles in the left thumb and two fingers which I can live with for the rest of my life, compared to what I had. Dr.Arvin explained everything very well. Very pleased with the outcome. Now recovering on light duty at work for another few months yet but all looking good so far.
