We are pleased to share some of the excellent reviews we have received for Mr Sajjad Mushtaq.

 

What a wonderful man Mr Mushtaq is. He took time to explain with the MRI Scan and X-rays in detail exactly what he believed the problem to be. He discussed the options as to help get rid of the pain I was experiencing and going the least invasive route first which I highly appreciated. He also was open to and always asking if I had any questions which were answered in terms that I could understand easily.

 

Mr Mushtaq is very caring and understanding has explained the treatment required to deal with my back.
