I was referred to Dr Leon Creaney through my private health insurance. I have had shoulder pain and discomfort for a number of years which was increasing in intensity as time went on. My first consultation was a long one to ascertain my medical problem. I was professionally examined in a comprehensive and systematic manner firstly by putting my shoulder through a barrage of movements and then with the aid of ultra sound. It was soon apparent on what my issue was and I was referred for X-rays and MRI scans to confirm a diagnosis of calcific supraspinatus tendinopathy. I was subsequently referred through his professional contacts for treatment. Having some medical knowledge myself, I was initially apprehensive with possible diagnosis’s and how protracted recovery could take. Dr Creaney, soon put my mind at rest on this matter and explained everything every step of the way. Follow up consultations have been very detailed and Dr Creaney has not left any stone unturned. On one occasion I required further Ultrasound scans, X-rays, MRI scans and further treatment after receiving the results. All this was done in one day and Dr Creaney personally ensured that I was treated swiftly, as I had a flight to catch later in the day. He kept me informed all the time both verbally in person and over the phone and also with written reports and results. I could not recommend Dr Creaney and his services enough, as I have been very impressed by his truly professional manner and conduct throughout my treatment regimen.

I was referred to Dr Creaney for the treatment of my achilles heel, injured through playing tennis. Dr Creaney's initial consultation was thorough and highly informative. He performed an ultrasound scan on my heel, explaining to me throughout what the test revealed and he then administered the shockwave therapy which has proved highly successful. Dr Creaney also discussed current research findings which have assisted with the physiotherapy and helped me to modify my exercises in order to advance my recovery and avoid further pain. Upon discussion of suspect tennis elbow, Dr Creaney immediately confirmed the diagnosis with an ultrasound scan and gave me further up to date advice on treatment and exercises which will speed my recovery. I can thoroughly recommend Dr Creaney, whose detailed knowledge and friendly expert advice have been invaluable.

Dr Leon Creaney performed a transforaminal and a caudal epidural on me at the beginning of the year and repeated the same procedure on me recently. I cannot thank him enough for the care I have received from him and his team it really was first class. He was very detailed, attentive, and professional throughout. Initially I was quite apprehensive about the procedure. However, Dr Leon Creaney immediately put me at ease; he explained every step of the process to me in great detail, he has an exceptional bedside manner and in very personable.

Many thanks!
