“Mr Sala is kind, cheerful, patient and knowledgeable. He explained my hand injury problem carefully and thoroughly. He also went through different options and their pros and cons. I had the operation yesterday and all went well. Mr Sala’s PA Jacqueline Barrow is very helpful and proactive- makes everything easy to organise. “
