I can not speak highly enough of the outstanding work undertaken & results achieved by Dr George Dracopoulos. After extensive consultation & his accurate consideration of what work needed to be done on my right foot, I am very happy with the result. I had bunion, bunionette & 3 torn ligaments in my toes done, with one toe requiring 2 pins. After 12weeks, all incisions have healed over & can almost not be seen at all. I have excellent movement in my foot & even more so than a friend who had minimal work done via keyhole surgery. I have no hesitation now in having a similar amount of surgery done on my left foot (via what is considered to be invasive surgery). I have confidence in the analysis by Dr George in providing the most appropriate surgery work for each patient, & which in my case involves again torn ligaments, with careful arthritis considerations.” – Pat Mueller

Dr Meng Ling was very good highly recommend.” – Clinton Rumbold

Following on from a knee injury, my GP gave me a referral to see one of the Orthopaedic Surgeons at the Clinic. The Surgeon for whom the referral was addressed to, declined to see me, as I do not have Private Health Insurance. Thankfully though, Dr Luke Mooney agreed to see me. He was honest, thorough and gave me some options other than a knee arthroscopy at the Clinic. Great bedside manner, and caring. He followed through with sending a letter to the Orthopaedic Clinic at a Public Hospital. Should circumstances change and I need to be treated privately, Dr Luke Mooney would be the Orthopaedic Surgeon that I would choose.
The five stars are for Dr Luke Mooney for his caring professionalism and his staff. Thank you.” – Stavroula Gorezis
