Highly recommended

An expert in his craft of Osteopathy. I , and various members of my family (young and older) , have seen Charles for aches, pains and more complex issues and always found his treatment to be very effective. He, and his team of fellow osteopaths and reception staff , are always pleasant, cheerful and happy to do their best to fit you in if you have a crisis. (He is popular and gets booked up...a fair way in advance (unless it's really urgent!). Prices are also reasonable in comparison with other local practitioners. Highly recommended.

Lovely, caring practice.

Such a lovely, caring practice, from the owners and practitioners to the receptionists. They understand the distress back pain can cause and every effort is made to help and advise you even if booked up. They have always managed to get me back to pain-free normality.

Superb Practice

Alison and Charles have been looking after my back for over 10 years. I’ve always had back problems due to the nature of my work, but their treatment keeps me going strong! I had used other osteopaths before I found them, and I have never had the results that I get now. I highly recommend the Charles Read Surgery. They’re not just superb practitioners, but lovely people that really care about their clients.

Testimonials

The Bromley Surgery

"I have suffered from a bad back now for many years through various ailments from a neck injury and from having a very stressful job as a teacher. As a result, I have been coming to the practice for many years. I have been treated by most of the osteopaths on the team and they all offer the same high level of experience, care and well-informed advice about what works for me. As well as treating the symptoms the team has educated me to understand the cause of the symptoms and treated them.

"Charles and Alison Read have treated myself and my family for over 20 years now and I cannot recommend the practice highly enough. They have helped me immensely through back problems caused by a fall as a child and chronic back pain due to high stress. They also treated my very ill mother with care and compassion and have become an integral part of mine and my family’s life."

"Charles Read & Associates is the best osteopathic practice I have ever used. Whether for an acute problem, or a regular ‘maintenance’ visit, the treatment is excellent and the osteopaths and staff are understanding, supportive and courteous. I have found out more about how my body works from Charles and his colleagues than I ever have from visiting my GP!"

The Bromley Surgery

"After having two hip replacements and some spinal problems I needed pain relief and mobility help. I received this by having regular treatment from Mr Charles Read at his osteopathic practice. He and his two colleagues are dedicated to their work and have given so many people a better quality of life. I would not have kept so active without the help and advice from Mr Read. His receptionists are always helpful and do try to arrange appointments quickly if it is an emergency."
