Staff are very polite and the surgeon was charming. Felt confident throughout diagnosis and treatment. Staff both helpful, good natured and understanding. I am improving all the time. Walking well and upright. I have begun a pilates treatment as suggested by Dr Akmal to strengthen lumbar region. I appreciated the time taken to explain what was wrong and how to correct it…
Delighted! And I enjoyed the care, food and friendly staff. Leslie M.
I have every confidence in Mr Akmal and the Spine Unit. Peter O.
Fantastic. Thank you so much. Victoria D.
I have felt extremely happy with all the treatments and consultations I have received and would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Akmal and his staff. Mary R
Dear Doctor Akmal, I feel I just had to write this letter of thanks to both you and St Johns and Elizabeths Hospital and staff. It was with great trepidation that I came to your hospital in excruciating agony and pain which I thought was just muscle spasm due to lifting a heavy wheelchair. A diagnosis I was given by…
Excellent in every way. Helen S.
Great success after years of back pain Prior to my surgery I had experienced back pain for close to ten years, getting progressively worse, affecting my hips and legs too. Through swimming, massages and heat patches I coped on a day to day basis, but with two young children, getting tired of being in pain and how that affects you…
Should have had the surgery when it was first recommended rather than perservering with injections and physio. Has been life changing – before I couldn’t walk more than a few blocks without pausing because of the pain. Today feels ‘normal’ – and it’s lovely! Michelle B.
I am delighted with the skill and professionalism displayed by the whole team. They put me at ease at all times and the hospital staff were friendly and helpful. Thanks to all. Peter B.
