I have received treatment from Ross on a few occasions for minor complaints. Investigation and diagnosis was very thorough and the exercises he gave me were clearly demonstrated and explained. Needless to say the issues no longer bother me. I would recommend Ross to anyone for physiotherapy

Ross has treated me on a few occasions for really bad back pain, he's a really friendly and easy going guy and it's easy to tell that he has a world of knowledge in Physio therapy. I found him to be a good listener and very thorough in his assessments, after being treated by Ross and advised on future exercises to help my pain I found that it helped massively in aiding my recovery. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ross to anyone needing Physio treatment.

I was recommended Ross by me personal trainer who spoke really highly of him. I was suffering (for over a year) with a loss of strength in my right arm which was affecting my workouts. Straight away I felt at ease and Ross asked me plenty of questions in my first session which helped me explain my issue to him in a much more clear way. My treatments with Ross which have included targeted massage, acupuncture and prescribed exercises have meant that I am seeing marked improvements already and have been able to continue not only to train but increase the weights I use which I have not been able to do for some time. I cannot recommend Ross more highly and will not hesitate in using his expertise if I require treatment in the future.

Ross has successfully treated my sports injuries on a number of occasions. He explains clearly what is wrong and what you need to do to repair yourself. He even forgives you if you don't listen and try to go back too quickly.........but only once. Take his advice he is always right !

I’ve received physiotherapy treatment, on and off, for the past 20 years due to a range of problems, and had therefore been under the care of a number of both private and NHS physiotherapists. That was until I discovered Ross. At the outset, I was impressed by his professionalism and his clinical knowledge. He is friendly and courteous, and his history taking along with his listening and observation skills is second to none in quickly discovering the cause of a problem. I’m always confident of the advice Ross gives, with clever suggestions on how to adopt exercises into everyday activities at work and at home. Whenever I meet someone needing physiotherapy treatment, I always refer them onto Ross, as he’s simply the best physiotherapist I’ve ever come across.

Unfortunately I have had the need to see a physio therapist over the last couple of years due to my inability to do any thing safely, But! Fortunately our business employs the services of Ross Tompkins who has treated me for numerous issues with my physical health and each and every time has diagnosed the symptoms and advised me of the appropriate treatment/training. He obviously has a great knowledge of the human body and takes the time to explain what has went wrong and how to avoid it in the future, he is also a genuine nice chap and has a great bed side manner.

I chose physiotherapy treatment with Ross for a hip complaint following a visit to his website which demonstrated a professional, patient focused ethos and relevant information about diagnosis and treatment options. Ross shows a professional , knowledgeable and caring manner and has strong interpersonal skills. He has good listening skills and is able to tailor treatment plans to individual needs.

Appointments are always on time, greeted and treated courteously and he has a great understanding. I go in a walking wreck and after appropriate treatment(s) come out with a feeling of what it is like to be young again. I have no hestitation in recommending Ross for treatment of bad backs.

Having visited Ross on numerous occasions over the last few years I've always found him to be friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. The care he provided was always very effective in speeding up my recovery and exercise plans were aimed at proactively strengthening any underlying weaknesses. Ross is a first class physio who I would highly recommend!

I first saw Ross with an issue I had been struggling with for about 9 months. I had been to my GP and also back and forth to the hospital for tests and scans but with no result in identifying what was causing the issue. After 4 sessions with Ross, he was able to help identify the issue, make a recommendation to my GP, which helped me get the surgery I required to correct the issue. Ross has helped me since my surgery and I can't recommend his services highly enough.

I have had 3 courses of physio with Ross for separate issues, in each case I have been seen at a convenient time, Ross has quickly diagnosed the problem, explained the issue clearly to me and given me a progressive set of exercises which have in each case led to a full recovery!

Ross is always on time and is so welcoming making you feel at ease from the second you walk in the building. His knowledge is second to none and after putting up with years of back pain, he has helped me massively in changing my life. Being able to work without pain or fear of really injuring myself, and being self employed risk losing income.

Ross is excellent! Listens to my concerns, asks searching questions, then explains his diagnosis before starting his treatment. Very client centric and confidence building. Add to that - so far with me - his therapy always works, what more could one ask for! I've happily recommended Ross to many - all of whom have been impressed

I had been experiencing back and mobility issues which had been causing me frustration and discomfort and was referred to Ross for physiotherapy. I can only say that this was a complete game changer for me. The advise and treatement was second to none and thanks to these sessions I feel I am now back to my "normal" self. I am exercising and feeling good and cannot recommend Ross enough. Thank you!!!

I went to Mr Tomkins having struggled with severe head aches and neck pain. Mr Tomkins very quickly diagnosed the issue and set me on a course of stretching and exercise to remedy the problem. After a few visits the issue was resolved and he gave me a programme of stretches to continue with to stop the problem happening again. I went from severe pain and being unable to workout to being pain free and back in the gym in a very short period of time. I would highly recommend Mr Tomkins. He has treated me for several issues over the last few years and I have always had fantastic results.

A "miracle worker"! I've had cause to call on Ross's services twice, each time after dozens of visits to other physiotherapists. On each occasion after just two or three "sessions", he has completely cured the problem. I honestly cannot recommend him highly enough. Chris Scott

I visited Ross on 17th November, I was concerned about an ankle injury I was having treated at hospital , It turns out I was misdiagnosed at the hospital. Thankfully after being examined by Ross he advised me what he thought the specific problem was. After revisiting hospital with this information I was given the correct diagnosis, which was exactly what Ross has said. I am now being given the correct treatment. I can't thank him enough
