Patients Love What We Do!

“Went to Gareth in a time of absolute agony just days before flying off on holiday. He fitted me in as an emergency and then after two visits and seeing his physio I was able to go on my holiday pain free! Very sympathetic and professional during the assessment and throughout treatment….. Dr. Gareth Ward comes highly recommended!“ Sara M.
