    I had an excellent experience with Mr. O’ Flaherty. From my initial consultation to my last post op appointment, Mr O’ Flaherty is a dedicated, caring professional who treats his patients with the upmost care. Having viewed my ankle he was soon to diagnose the pain on my right ankle, explaining carefully what options I had and what he recommended as my consultant. It was a very easy and quick process.

    Absolutely wonderful. My ankle operation was a complete success and I can't thank Maurice enough. After years of repeated injuries he strengthened my ankle and allowed me to train and jog without pain for the first time in years. So so grateful.
