“Mr Mendoza came highly recommended by a friend who has a long term back problem. The initial consultation was brisk, inquiring and professional. His recommendation was that an immediate procedure was not necessary but the the condition would only deteriorate and to come back when it became intolerable, which it did. At the second consultation it was agreed that the procedure should go ahead. The initial procedure date had to be postponed due to Covid 19 ramifications but went ahead 10 days later on 12 December, with a two night recovery period in Charing Cross hospital. Post operation recovery has been straight forward and the debilitating pain has gone. The post op consultation was held on Zoom and was informative and supportive. Exercise is improving mobility and will be followed up as the gyms are allowed to re-open. As Mr Thomas, the husband, said " I have my wife back".“

    I was happy with my consultation, which in the current COVID environment was via Zoom. Obviously it would have been better to be face to face where I could be examined.
