Top feedback

“I had a radical prostatectomy 15 years ago which left me with ED. I was referred to a couple of sexual health specialists but Ms Grover was the first one to really help me at what was a difficult time. Above all she was sympathetic and understanding and clearly very knowledgeable about the causes of the problem and the treatment options. With Ms Grover's help my wife and I have continued to enjoy a fulfilling sex life. We are both very grateful for her support and cannot recommend her highly enough.“
