Dr Spencer-Smith is an exceptional sports physician specialising in musculoskeletal treatment. I've worked with Cath as a recipient of her referrals for Dietetics for several years now; and all patients who have received her care have only had positive feedback. Her care and attention to 'tricky' musculoskeletal issues, chronic under-training or other sports performance issues is incredible. She comes highly recommended from one clinician to another, don't look any further!
Cath is a very knowledgable and experienced Sports Doctor. She is an excellent communicator and helps clients understand their condition and takes the time to carefully explain to clients what is wrong and what the best options are for a full recovery. I refer regularly to Cath and would trust her with my nearest and dearest. One of the best!
Cathy Spencer-Smith is my Sports Medicine specialist of choice. She is an excellent clinician and diagnostician, as well as having the bedside manner to match!
I can highly recommend Cath as a Sports & Exercise Medicine doctor. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience, which she combines with a friendly and straightforward approach to solving your injury. She is second to none when it comes to fixing hips!
