“I was at my wits end when I contacted Mr Welck to help diagnose a chronically painful problem I am suffering with relating to my feet and ankles, which had never been properly identified by others that I had presented to over a number of years and therefore not sufficiently treated. Mr Welck had a really kind and professional manner, immediately putting me at ease at my initial appointment. He listened attentively and understood the chronic pain I had been suffering continually for a long period of time. Most importantly, he gave me hope that he would be able to help me, which I had almost given up on. He arranged for the necessary scans and blood tests to be carried out immediately, which were required to properly diagnose the problems I have and therefore could advise on suitable treatment. When the results of my scans and tests were returned, I had a second consultation with Mr Welck, where he took the time to show them to me on his monitor and explain in layman terms exactly what was causing me such pain and his opinion on the best way forward to start treating it. He also gave me the reports and a letter for me to take forward to my GP to speed up the urgent care I require. I am grateful for his recent care and expertise and would not hesitate to return to Mr Welck for further treatment if needs be. He gave me the answers in two short meetings that I had been trying to find out unsuccessfully for years. I would recommend him to anyone suffering with foot and ankle problems. “

    Mr Welck was fantastic from the start of my journey to the end. He took his time to explain in detail and in a language I understood. He was always on hand to answer any questions I had. With my Ruptured Achilles injury, in the end I had to go down the surgery route and Mr Welck helped me through the whole process making me feel comfortable and at ease. I would recommend Mr Welck to anyone in a similar boat to me.
