Excellent doctor, very knowledgeable, professional, positive and considerate.

Great surgeon/doctor, helped me get back on my feet.

I cannot fault my care. Mr Madura is an excellent doctor who explains everything so clearly and is a very good listener.

I would definitely recommend, Mr Madura is amazing. I felt cared for at all times.

It would be an insult to say thank you to one particular person, because everyone was so good to me. Thank you.

Mr Madura makes you feel at ease. Very understanding, looks at you as a whole and the effect your injury has.

Overall my treatment was excellent. I’m happy and my hands are no more unwell.

The most professional team I have met in the last ten years.
