After being in pain for months and my gp diagnosing it as 'sciatica' I nearly lost the will to live. But after many visits and moaning to my gp some more, I was eventually referred to wansbeck. Everyone I met, during initial consultation, to scans I had, were very friendly, helpful and kind. I had no unnecessary waiting around and felt cared for. I was then transfered to my consultant and I have to say, I've never met a lovelier man. He had such kindness and compassion and never once made me feel like I was a chore. He gave me the nerve root block to start with but this didn't work so he got me in for a discectomy within weeks. It has been the best thing I've ever done and completely taken away all my pain. Although I've heard a few bad things about wansbeck, I have to say I was over the moon with my experience and wouldn't think twice about recommending it to anyone. All the staff were lovely, they couldn't have been nicer and made what was a nerve wracking time for me, into a calm and relaxing few days. And a final add, the consultant is a credit to your team and I couldn't have met anyone else who I felt completely at ease with and who I could put my trust in to take care of me. Thanks to you all
