Jonathan is brilliant, very easy to talk to. I always feel like he listens to everything I say and takes that on board. I appreciate his approach and within one week I was already feeling better after having months and months of bad back pain. I would not hesitate in using Jonathan again.

Today was my first day ever having to see a physiotherapist and was a great experience! The lady at the desk was very lovely and had great customer service, I was seen by Jonathan who did a great job, made me feel very comfortable and was easy to chat to and have a laugh also while being very good at his job! I look forward to recovering through this place

Logan Physio has been great for me over the last 10 years, Justine and Sandy are very knowledgeable caring people who offer a great personalised service. I have attended their exercises classes for a long time which helped me with my ability to recover from a recent serious case of sepsis which resulted in me becoming a below knee amputee. Justine is now working with me to gain more strength as an amputee and is doing a great job. She is very caring and knowledgeable.
