What to expect

When you visit our clinic you will meet either Alison or Martin, to discuss your current symptoms, reason for your visit, as well as your overall health, lifestyle and medical history.  With your consent, a physical examination may follow, and any additional tests or imaging may be requested.

If you already have imaging eg MRI, X-Ray, or recent blood tests, please bring them with you

You may need to undress for the examination. We do provide gowns, but please wear loose fitting clothing and bring additional items eg shorts to ensure you are comfortable.

Once a diagnosis has been reached, we will discuss it with you and agree a plan or care. If you have a problem which we cannot handle, we will refer you to a medical doctor or another specialist.

First appointments usually take between 30 minutes and one hour.

If there are any specific risks associated with your condition, you will be advised of these before starting care. You will also be advised of the most common reactions to care.
