Following an optician's findings of a visual anomaly and experiencing severe headaches/double vision which became worse when reading and when tired, my GP recommended I visit an Optometrist, and after searching on line, I came across Birdwell Clinic.

The administrator at Birdwell Clinic, Debra, was extremely professional and polite and the consultation with Adam, the Optometrist was professional and courteous beyond my expectations. The examination of my eyes was thorough and comprehensive. He identified exactly what the problem was with my vision and communicated this to me, and reported to my GP.

I cannot thank Adam and Debra enough for their patience, courtesy and professionalism, which contributed hugely towards the resolution of my visual problems, and would have no hesitation in recommending Birdwell Clinic.

When I trapped my Sciatic nerve, I thought that I'd be suffering excruciating pain for months or years, after hearing other people's stories of their experience. I run my own business and couldn't afford to not be working long term, so I approached Diane Ouzman for help. Diane’s examination showed there were problems with my neck as well as my lower back, which were causing me to have nerve pain down my leg. Through her expert joint manipulation and mobilisation, she helped me recover from the sciatica within just a few weeks of working with her. She also gave me top tips about how to avoid problems in the future - all of which I'm heeding and have improved the quality of my life no end.


After poor experiences with constantly changing personnel in city centre opticians, it was a delight to find personal service so close to home. I have been a client of Birdwell Clinic for several years and always found Adam to be both professional and personable. He took time to understand me and my needs, whilst offering clear expertise and advice. I have enjoyed efficient, responsive and courteous service from him and have no hesitation in recommending Birdwell Clinic.
