Justin is a regular colleague whom I work with and refer to. I have full confidence in his approach and care to patients as well as his quality of service, which goes without saying. I would not hesitate to recommend him to colleagues and patients.
I first worked with Justin over ten years ago at DMRC Headley Court and have shared similar paths with roles including England Women's Rugby and within the Faculty of Sports Medicine. He is a very caring and patient centred Doctor. He is extremely good with complex medical management with his back ground in Rehabilitation as well as Sports Medicine and would recommend him to all patients with complex cases to solve.
