I recently saw Dr Jo with an ankle injury. She took her time to assess my problem and made me feel at ease. She has a lovely manner and genuinely seemed interested in me. I now understand what action I need to take and have a plan to follow. I would highly recommend her and will definitely contact her again should I have any injuries.
