    From my first consultation to the post- operation visits Mr Falworth demonstrated exceptionally skilful medical expertise. The detailed explanation of my condition, the proposed treatment/surgery and that of the lengthy recuperation period were particularly useful in understanding the pros and cons and setting the right expectations. Mr Falworth’s dedication is truly commendable: after operating on my shoulder on a late Friday evening, Mr Falworth came to see me and discus the surgery findings the following early Saturday morning. All in all, I benefited from a highly caring and professional service.

    In the brief and simple case that I had, Mr Falworth was completely knowledgeable and his confidence was very natural. There were some check questions and he communicated to me that the answers were mine to give. On the day his brief visits were welcome and told me that I could rely not only on the nursing staff but the anaesthetist and surgeon as well.

    Mr Falworth is an extremely friendly and welcoming doctor. He immediately makes you feel relaxed and is thorough in his examination. He listens intently and his explanations are detailed and easy to understand .... he goes through a step by step guide of how he can help to alleviate/rectify all problems because patient care is of the utmost importance to him. After a relatively simple procedure my symptoms disappeared over a few weeks and I highly recommend Mr Falworth to anyone with shoulder issues like myself.
