Kevin Reese Physiotherapy

29a Sutton St, Durham DH1 4BW, UK – 07852 752437

Kevin has two main attributes. He takes a completely holistic approach to his work. Secondly, he never takes anything for granted. He seems to look at you each time with a completely new set of eyes. He is extremely competent and dedicated to what he does. He is very friendly and makes people feel comfortable and at ease and able to express their problems fully. He also has a sense of humour which we have always appreciated. Anne and I can recommend him unreservedly.

I’ve seen Kevin since 2015 for chronic pain. In all that time he has been extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring, treating individual needs at each appointment. I’ve had a long standing problem and accessed numerous treatment options but none have been as understanding and effective as Kevin.

I've been to see Joanne a few times and the treatment has always been excellent, it's very easy to book an appointment at a suitable time as well.

Well recommended practice with two osteopaths. Away from city centre with its own car park
