"Great staff, and knowledge. I called the clinic after I had a traumatic experience elsewhere which left me with 2nd-degree burns. Very, very pleased with the results of the burn, it disappeared and left no scarring with the dressing and treatment Mr Goutos used. My experience as a whole has been more than pleasant and I would recommend both the clinic and Mr Goutos to all!"

He’s been extremely patient in taking time to explain things in full, prompt in answering all the questions I had throughout my recovery. Excellent communicator and very kind indeed. Scrub nurses were lovely, and in general I can’t fault my experience with you at all."
