Just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thanks for the work you undertook on my shoulder. It is now fully healed & working better than ever. Even Sonia, my physio, has discharged me & said I now have more movement in the shoulder than my good one! The care yourself & everyone at the Circle was outstanding, and I definitely would have no hesitation in recommending you.

I had an arthroscopy at the circle and found all the staff amazing. Attention to detail from Dr Brownlow before and after OP was more than I ever expected. Well done to all staff there you do an amazing job. Rated Circle Reading Hospital 5 stars on Google

I would like to thank every single member of state that had any dealings with me during my visit to Circle Reading. From the moment I chose the hospital, I could not have asked for a better standard of treatment. It was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced before. The reception staff, physios, catering staff and of course Pieta and Mr Brownlow made me feel safe and secure throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Circle Reading.

Your team and all the members of the Circle Hospital Staff could not have been more helpful and attentive.
Following my three month review with Pieta Blake I am writing to let you know how delighted I am with the result of my total left shoulder replacement. Your team and all the members of the Circle Hospital Staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. As a result of the operation and with the help of my physiotherapist, Linda Green I am well on the way to a full pain free recovery and am now able to sleep in bed at night instead of sitting up in an armchair. What a relief! As you know I was most reluctant to undertake surgery but in no way regret my decision to have the operation.

"Would I ever go back to see Mr Brownlow and the Circle hospital? 100%, what a great experience"
I wanted to share my experience with Mr Brownlow and the Circle hospital in Reading. I had a problem with my shoulder and I went to see Me Brownlow. We met at Henley rugby club where Mr Brownlow has a clinic. I went there as I was in so much pain I needed someone to give me advice. We had never met before and Mr Brownlow was just about to go on holiday. There was no rushing through the consultation Mr Brownlow took the time to listen and assess me even though he was going on holiday that day. A cortisone was administered and wow did that help. Mr Brownlow advised me this may help but he felt it would not cure the issue. On further examination after the cortisone had lapsed Mr Brownlow confirmed an issue in my shoulder and that would require surgery to really solve the problem. The hospital admitted me and the process was very swift to have the operation. Once again Mr Brownlow and the hospital staff was excellent. What a difference bedside manner makes for a patient. From Mr Brownlow to the hospital staff excellent work. Would I ever go back to see Mr Brownlow and the Circle hospital? 100%, what a great experience. Keep up the great work your doing Mr Brownlow. For the Circle hospital staff all I can say is wow your a credit to the hospital and your profession.

From start to finish the whole process was incredibly efficient from first appointment to having my frozen shoulder surgery the following week (quick even with private cover), follow up physio was great and sign off from surgeon was a great relief after suffering for eight months. Great relief to be pain free.

Frozen Shoulder

Thank you once again for your work in getting me back to full fitness. As a professional pilot and someone who enjoys all manner of sport my health and fitness are vital.  Therefore, a shoulder dislocation and fracture incurred whilst biking was a major concern to me.  I was, however, very fortunate to have been treated by Mr Brownlow who provided outstanding care throughout my treatment and recovery.  I firmly believe that his surgical skill and post operative advice allowed me to make a speedy return to work and resume all the activities I enjoy. Many thanks again!
