However all of the team were fantastic and put me at ease

It is with pleasure that I write this.  I have suffered with back pain for a number of years and simply put up with it believing it was a normal stage of ageing.  However I found the pain levels increasing to the point where I found it difficult to move or even have a comfortable nights sleep. A colleague recommended Mr Ishaque.  I had very little expectation that something could be done however the appointment was made and within a few days of our meeting I had had scans and x rays, the problem was identified and Mr Ishaque had reassured me that my problem could be treated.  A few weeks later I received treatment by Mr Ishaque and his team at the Priory Hospital.The treatment consisted of injections into the spine under general anaesthetic.  I attended the hospital with some trepidation (never having had any hospital treatment or anaesthetic before) however all of the team were fantastic and put me at ease, looking after me, my concerns and my family throughout my stay.Following my treatment I had queries and questions however it was easy to contact Mr Ishaques office and via his PA Linda Hamilton receive sensible and reassuring advice.At this point in time the pain is dramatically decreased meaning I can now sleep, I can lie down on the floor to take part in activities such as pilates and yoga (I could not before) and the quality of my daily life is improved dramatically.I am now undergoing physiotherapy which is already supporting the treatment I have had from Mr Ishaque and in conjunction with advice he has given me I am very confident that I will be able to manage my condition for the future and lead an active and fulfilling life.
With sincere thanks and gratitude
