    Found Mr Williamson to be very professional, he did not hurry me, he listened to me. Discussed with me options available, positive outcomes plus possible complications. His manner was kind and supportive and he communicated very effectively giving me confidence to go ahead with the surgery which then went according to plan. Post surgery follow ups prepared me for each stage and my convalescence went very well. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mr Williamson or use him again in the future.

    Dr Williamson was very professional, listens to the issue and provides good explanations. Overall I am very happy to receive treatment from him. My only criticism is the supporting staff ie secretaries very difficult to get hold off does not pick up calls or return voicemails. E-mails are hit and miss taking into consideration i was an outpatient.

    Mr Williamson asked searching questions on history of the problem, examined my ankle and prescribed exercises to improve the tendon. He also discussed further potential treatment if no significant improvement. Everything was explained clearly and made complete sense. Excellent experience and filled me with confidence.

    The entire experience under Mr Williamson’s care has been professional, caring and person centred. He has listened and responded to my queries.
