"We have had 3 appts with Taher for our son so far and wish to express that he has been like a breath of fresh air.
He is approachable, friendly and very knowledgeable. I have learnt more from him in 3 weeks than I have from the NHS physio's who visited my son over 11 months. He has provided me with a series of stretches to carry out daily plus activities whilst in his wheelchair and standing frame, I actually feel like I am contributing effectively to my son's rehabilitation. I know it's early days but we are very happy with the service provided so far!"
