Reviews

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

12-10-2017
June 2017 I met with Pippa following a scan showing deterioration in the Articular cartilage of my left knee from years of high impact exercise. I had suffered discomfort, waking me at night and pain when walking. Pippa completed an in depth assessment, having also seen the MRI she prescribed and administered an injection into the knee joint of Ostenil plus. Pippa informed me that the needle would go in a long way and that I should feel very little pain, which was very assuring especially as it went in up to the hilt. Pippa continued with the reassurance until the procedure was complete, also explaining the complete lack of pain was down to the lidocaine and would wear off. That said I now walk with little to no pain and do not find myself woken at night. Pippa was attentive, patient and very knowledgeable as you would hope. I will definitely return when the injection wears off (also explained) and will highly recommend her services.
