What People Say About Us

Client Testimonials

Professor Imam helped me to get over years of pain in my left shoulder. I had the first surgery 18 years ago and then many followed. Now, although my shoulder is not perfect (he said it won't and I knew that) but man what a relief now. I am becoming a human again!!! Thanks
I was treated by Mr Imam after intensive physiotherapy on a frozen shoulder had failed to help me.
I chose Mr Imam because of his medical qualifications, extensive clinical experience and his corresponding PhD in the shoulder. I thought, “this guy really knows a lot about arms and shoulders” – this proved to be the case.

During my initial consultation, a diagnosis was delivered with the support of MRI scans, with reassuring calm confidence. A targeted home physio programme was recommended (rather than surgery) supported by a steroid injection; this was successful.
