    Dr Jawad is a kind, empathetic and patient doctor. She is very conscientious and mannered. Few of my patients, ranging from 15 to 70 years old, have seen her and were extremely pleased with the attention and level of care. The best review was from my 15 year old patient with complex spinal and heel pain - Dr Jawad has worked very hard to formulate a management plan and both patient and his family are incredibly pleased. I would definitely recommend her to patients with absolutely no hesitation.

    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    The most common presenting complaints that the patients have or the presenting problems are joint pain. Shoulder pain, neck pain, elbow pain, wrist and hand pain, hip pain, knee pain and foot and ankle pain are probably the most common things that I see. So, joint pain, muscle pain, muscle injuries, among others, are the most common symptoms that I see.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    One of the things that I can offer is diagnostic ultrasound. I can also do therapeutic injections where appropriate. I've got links to local clinics where patients can have other diagnostic imaging, such as x-ray, MRI and CT scan where necessary. If patients require blood tests, they can be sent elsewhere for diagnostic purposes.

    Treatment-wise, it really depends on the clinical scenario. There can be some injections which can be therapeutic or therapeutic adjuncts to physiotherapy because I work closely with physiotherapists. Often, if the patient's treatment is rehab based, then I can coordinate their care with one of my rehab colleagues in physiotherapy. We've also got soft tissue therapists at Pure Sports Medicine. We have a podiatrist as well. All those close links that I have with those colleagues are how we can get good care to our patients.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    I am particularly interested in tendinopathy. I am interested in ultrasound. I also have a Masters' degree in Performing Arts Medicine and I did a project with the Royal Ballet. I'm interested in the performing artists and dancers as well. But I see people from all walks of life whether they are athletic or otherwise.

    I'm quite interested in the shoulder, wrist and hands.
