    Mr Dhinsa made me feel very comfortable and that my ailment was real and he understood the discomfort that it causes. He examined my foot and calf (even in times of Covid). He gave a full explanation of what was occurring, how and why. He explained what to expect if it should heal itself and what to expect if it does not heal. Mr Dinsha explained the various options of future treatments should they be needed. He also showed me a video and how to obtain the video which showed exercises than I should undertake at home. Mr Dhinsa was extremely professional and clearly an expert in his field.
