Dr Reffitt is amazing! He arranged the tests I needed (which I was dreading but they were completely painless thanks to his skill) and I got a diagnosis very quickly. I am now on the correct medication and living a pain free normal life. He is very caring, reassuring and really listens every single time I see him. I would thoroughly recommend him. I am very grateful to have found Dr Reffitt and I feel my health is in the safest of hands.


Dr Reffitt and his team, Pam especially are always there when you need them - happy to listen and provide you with precious advice. I would definitely recommend them!
