I found the receptionist very friendly and helpful with information for my pregnant daughter. Also, my physiotherapist was very friendly and helpful and made me feel at ease. He gave me great exercises to take home with me, and was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Melrose Physiotherapy.
