What Our Clients Say …
“ Well worth a visit …
As a stroke survivor, I struck gold when I was recommended, by a family member, to go to Midleton Physiotherapy Clinic for the ongoing physiotherapy needed by me to maintain my quality of life.
From the onset I was inspired by the accessibility of the clinic, the courteous friendly reception staff and the professionalism, confidence and quality of personal care I receive from the physiotherapist, Bernadette Whelan.
I currently attend the clinic on a fortnightly basis and no matter what problem I present, ( of which there have been many-back pain, neck stiffness, pain in my shoulder,elbow, upper arm,) Bernadette,with her knowledge and expertise can pinpoint exactly the source of my problem and formulate a plan to relieve my pain.
During the past five years, the clinic has always facilitated me with emergency treatments whenever needed. Because I am so happy with my care, on my recommendation, my husband, other family members and some of my friends now attend the clinic and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is suffering and would like to improve their quality of life.” – Deirdre O’ Herlihy, Guileeen
