Date of Birth

I rarely provide reviews for people, however I have been extremely pleased with the treatment I received and the expertise from Andrew in treating my Shoulder injury which had deteriorated after a motorcycle accident 5 years earlier. At all times Andrew was clear and concise and took time to explain his prognosis, treatments and likely outcomes. The ACJ surgery went extremely smoothly as a day patient and follow up and physiotherapy has resulted in a working, pain free shoulder joint, which has really improved my lifestyle. I recommend Andrew highly, he is not only good at what he does, but he is genuinely passionate about getting the very best outcome for his patients.
