    I was very pleased with my treatment and appointments with Mr Malagelada. He spent time assessing what had happened and was very thorough in initial diagnosis. He gave me detailed instructions on what to do and for my physio. The follow up appointment was also very thorough and I have advice and exercises on what I need to do to fully recover.

    After having severe pain in my left foot, due to an re-occuring injury in my right ankle, I decided to get a 2nd opinion from Francesc, after reading his reviews and thinking the diagnosis I had locally was not correct. I was very impressed with his approach and he quickly diagnosed me correctly. I am now working on the right plan to rehabilitate both feed and the pain has eased fast.

    Mr Malagelada is absolutely fantastic, easily the best doctor I’ve had an experience with and I am so fortunate I had him for my surgery and treatment. He really takes the time to listen to you and carefully explains every step of the process so that you feel informed and knowledgeable about everything that is happening. I tore two ligaments badly in my ankle and was worried about ever being able to run and play sports again but Mr Malagelada helped me to recover much quicker than I thought I’d be able to. I was worried about needing to have surgery but he reassured me hugely and the process couldn’t have gone better. I felt in very safe hands and was also reassured by his careful and measured approach. He also has an excellent bedside manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
