“I cannot recommend Mr Tsekes highly enough. After suffering for 3 years with shoulder pain, i am now 8 weeks post surgery, already feeling a tremendous improvement. His phenomenal level of knowledge and skill, alongside his most kind and compassionate manner, filled me with all the confidence i required. Thank you so very much for all you have done to help me.“

An excellent experience throughout. I was seen in a timely fashion and received a thorough history taking, examination, explanation of my symptoms and treatment plan. I had investigations and a joint injection carried out within 2 weeks of the initial consultation which has successfully relieved my symptoms. My follow up consultation gave me reassurance that I could receive more treatment as required. The only slightly negative experience is that I have been sent emails with a texted password and I am unable to open these. Although I have replied to ask for help, I have received no response so these emails are useless to me at present.
