After previously seeing a couple of consultants without success prior to meeting Mr Shafay, I was joyed when he successfully diagnosed my condition where others had failed. His diagnosis has led to my condition being successfully treated and I thoroughly recommend his approach. From the initial consultation he has explained things very clearly and given me confidence in following his full advice.

After being referred to Dr Shafafy by my local osteopath contact was made with in 24hours. I was seen and treated all with in 1 week. Dr Shafafy is simply a great guy. Calming, reassuring and clearly an expert in his field. It was nice to know that not only did he know what my issue was, but that he would be the one to operate. His terminology used was easy to understand and very little medical jargon used. Even the follow up appointment with him was simple. For any future treatment I may need I would ONLY go to Dr Shafafy. Thank you.
