What do Walnut Grove Clinic’s Clients Say?

‘Over 20 years ago, I arrived at the Walnut Grove Clinic with a worn-out disintegrating body.  Now, thanks to the whole team at the Clinic for their professionalism and kindness, I am still working full time.  I am so grateful to everyone involved.’ - JMV

‘It’s been many years that I’ve been attending Gemma’s Pilates class.  She is patient, calm and certainly has lots of knowledge about the human body.  Gemma cares for each individual person and will modify any exercise to suit.  She seems to be coming up with different challenges most weeks.  During lockdown the online class has been invaluable.  It’s been something to look forward to and I’ve been able to keep in touch with the rest of the group.’ - JH

‘When we met Lisa, she measured Mia’s head and confirmed she had brachycephaly. We are so pleased with the results; our only regret is not finding out about the treatment sooner.’JHB

‘When my hearing started to deteriorate three years ago, I consulted Andrew Bird Hearing.  I was impressed by their very professional diagnosis of the problem and their intelligible explanation of the options.  The hearing aids they supplied have proved to be very helpful and satisfactory. I have also appreciated their continuing after care with annual check-ups and adjustments as necessary.’ IS
