I have received two lots of steroid injections in the base of both thumbs and in my right wrist administered by Dave Baker. I managed to get a convenient appointment quickly and while previous injections I have had through a private hospital were very painful for days, the injections i had from Dave did not hurt at all. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the procedure clearly and was careful and thorough. I was delighted with the service in general and I highly recommend him.

I am a physiotherapist myseIf and have been suffering with a frozen shoulder for some months! Dave Baker was able to see me at a time that suited me in the early evening after work. Everything was fully explained to me prior to my treatment including exactly what to expect during treatment, all the potential risks, benefits and alternatives to treatment. The clinic is convenient and easy to find (I don’t live in London). The clinic is clean, busy and efficient. After assessing my shoulder and reviewing also with a diagnostic ultrasound scan, the injection process itself was quick and painless. Four weeks on from the injection my pain has totally gone and my movement is so much better from following my own rehab – I can now perform my exercises pain free. I should have come here months ago. IMO this is what excellent care looks like. Thank-you Dave I am very grateful.

By having a steroid injection it enabled me to enjoy a very active holiday. A week before the injection I had been unable to climb stairs without experiencing a great deal of pain.
