    Professor Brownson has always been very professional and thorough, taking time to explain things in a clear and understandable way. He was very clear about what needed to be done and the realistic outcome expectations. He has a very gentle and caring manner and I can't thank him enough for restoring me back to full function so swiftly.

    Explanation (5/5)
    A great experience over a period of a couple of years following a relatively serious bike accident. I first met Prof Brownson iwhen I was in a considerable amount of pain and discomfort. The treatment I received from the entire team, surgeon, physio and pain management specialists was brilliant. I have movement back in my arm, the injury has settled down, although still in a bit of discomfort I am pleased to have returned to most of things I did pre accident. This s a direct result of Prof Brownson's expert advice and treatment. (Thank you..)

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    I attended Professor Brownson's clinic at Spire Hospital having had my arm in pop for nearly 4 weeks. I had suffered a dislocation of the elbow and a fracture. The prognosis was not favourable as I had been in plaster for so long and I was not due to have an NHS appointment for a further 7 weeks which would have been disastrous. The pop was removed immediately and a course of physio undertaken. 4 weeks on I have a full functional arm for which I will be eternally grateful. The speed and quality of the service that I received was first class and was delivered in a friendly and professional environment. I could not recommend any higher.
