I cannot recommend Mr Hemmerdinger highly enough. The online consultation process was simple, easy to follow and eased my concerns during this lockdown period. Chris gave me support and guidance and as always, gave me reassurance through the whole process.
I was impressed with the speed and efficiency with which Mr. Hemmerdinger addressed my problem.
From the initial consultation, the care that we received from Chris was outstanding. He is very knowledgeable, professional and very friendly. Although my dad lives abroad which made it even more difficult, Chris really supported us through this.
