Back Pain Clinic

36 Hawkin St, Londonderry BT48 6RE, UK – 028 7128 0380

It has been a month since I last seen John for back pain I had been experiencing for about a year and a half. I had six sessions with John and gradually my pain got less and less with each appointment. Since our last session, through sticking to an easy stretching routine and mild exercise, I have had no more pain and have managed to get back into running. Having been to other physiotherapists in the past, I can safely say, John is simply the best there is. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you, John!

Very thorough by John. After a few sessions, I felt improvement. Took Johns advice on stretching exercises and I continue to recover...would have no hesitation going back again.

Just had my first appointment at Claire's practice and I have to say it was great! From the moment I walked in and greeted I felt my nerves easing. Then i met claire....what a lovely warm caring person. I would highly recommend!

Incredibly professional and caring practice. Claire and her team are without a doubt, the best in the town. If you're looking for a dentist, I couldn't recommend Claire Hughes Dental enough.

Therapie Clinic Derry - Laser Hair Removal Derry | Botox Derry

3 Carlisle Rd, Fountain St, Londonderry BT48 6QX, UK – 0800 012 1565

I had a few lazer hair removal treatments done of which i am not at all happy. Not all but a lot of hair has grown back in places i least desired...legs and chin. On a brighter note the staff are amazing, very friendly, polite and accomodating that is why i have given three stars. For the expense of treatment tho i am not at pleased.

My consultant Claire is absolutely amazing she is so helpful and she is so willing to help you. Claire is the kind of employee that everyone loves she is so professional but very friendly as well. In only two times meeting her she has made me feel very relaxed and comfortable (something that is very hard to do with my terrible anxiety). She is a real gem and I could not recommend this clinic any more highly.
