    Mr Baljinder Dhinsa was very good explaining the procedure. I explained due to my previous experience having the pins removed I was very anxious. He gently reassured me. He was very professional at all times. A total Gentleman. I would happily have Mr Balijinder Dhinsa operate on me again if I should ever require foot Surgery in the future.

    I visited Mr Dhinsa to obtain a second opinion on planned surgery, having had him recommended to me by another highly regarded Orthopaedic surgeon and was not disappointed. He conducts himself with the upmost professionalism, however, not as to distance himself from his patient. The procedure that was undertaken was very well explained and in 'laymans' terms, thus putting my mind at ease. On the day of the surgery, whilst completing the necessary paperwork, he still made time and not rushed through the process and infact during subsequent follow up consultations. At all times in his care I felt no reservation and entirely at ease, whilst receiving the best possible treatment.
