Ensuring hand was fitted correctly

Sath was excellent ensuring my hand was fitted correctly with glove and brace. Friendly and very professional. He explained my restrictions thoroughly. He shared my excitement on improvement

Excellent and good demonstrations

Excellent. I feel that without this therapy I would have had to undergo surgery, and the problem will still be present. Good demonstrations and drawings using own hands.

Concerns were recognised

I feel that my concerns were recognised, options for management discussed, and realistic expectations for outcome were offered.
