What our patients say

  • Hi Dr Ford, just wanted to pop you through a quick message to thank you for the diagnosis of Seth’s reflux last week, initially the losec worked immediately and then he caught a cold so now he is on the mend we are seeing the true effects come through, he is a much happier little fella who will lie down and play now and I’m not stuck carrying him around all day. Can’t believe it took over four months to get the help that we so desperately needed so thank you for helping us and listening when no one else would! I have attached a photo of Seth taken today, please feel free to use my message and or photo on any of your web pages as a testimonial, thanks again
