    Thank you for all my hand operations, can't believe how they are. Also, thank you for my feet operation. I never thought I would see the day where my foot can actually go in a shoe properly. Thank you for all of your hard work.

    My 4 year old scalded his hand quite badly. Mr Bran was amazing! I was quite anxious as my son wouldn’t let anyone near his hand. But Mr Bran was so calm, kind and fun- my son warmed to him immediately. He treated his hand and followed him up and we are so happy with he results. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and we are so grateful that we found him!! Would highly recommend - children love him!! And his knowledge and skills were amazing too. Thank you
