    "Very professional from start to finish, well done Lion House"

    "Phoned for an emergency appointment even though I wasn't registered with them, I was seen on the same day and my pain hasn't been back since. Really impressed - thanks!"

    "I have found the sleepwell appliance exceptionally good. It has stopped my snoring ( to my husbands great relief) and although slightly uncomfortable to start with, i soon got used to it. Thank you for actually providing something that actually works!"
