New Town Dental Care

4 Henderson Row, Edinburgh EH3 5DS, UK – 0131 556 2776

After 10 year of being scared about going to the dentist, I bit the bullet and decided that I really need to go as I had a badly rotten tooth. Alastair is absolutely fantastic, and put me at ease straight away. After having one tooth extracted and a couple of filling done, I now feel my fear of the dentist is well and truly a thing of the past. Thank you to the whole team at New Town Dental Care. I highly recommend them 👏👏👏👏

I’ve been using New Town Dental Care for a few years now. The staff are very friendly and always helpful when fitting appointments in between your busy schedules. Margaret (hygienist) is delightful, very professional and talkative making you feel at ease. Derek (dentist) is also fantastic, very warm and welcoming. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Cherrybank Dental Spa Edinburgh

Centrum House 108-114 Dundas St, Edinburgh EH3 5DQ, UK – 0131 550 1600

Thanks again to the whole team at cherry bank. Extremely professional and always looked after so well at every appointment and fantastic aftercare. 3/4 of the way there now Thanks again for all your help and support See you all soon 😁😁😁😁😁

So much better than just going to the dentist. Very friendly, welcoming staff who kept me informed every step of the way throughout my treatment.

Christopher Sale Dentistry Ltd

47 Dublin St, Edinburgh EH3 6NL, UK – 0131 556 2665

My family and I have been visiting Chris and his team for many years. We’ve always found them to be very friendly and incredibly good at what they do. They’ve also been very good with our kids who genuinely enjoy their visits. Can highly recommend!

Came to Christopher because my tooth had re-chipped and another chip was discoloured from a previous dentist. Very happy with the end result with the chip being almost invisible and matching my teeth colour. A very professional service and would highly recommend

Doctors serving the Edinburgh area

Dr H Gray

26 Huntingdon Pl, Edinburgh EH7 4AT, UK – 0131 556 8196

Great practice - always there when I need them. I've always had very positive experiences with staff at every level. I've been registered here for more than 15 years.

Best GP I've ever had, bar none. (Edit to add: I mean, I know it's kind of weird to leave google reviews for your GP; I was just saddened when I came to check the phone number and saw that someone had left a bad review because she was annoyed at the reception staff, so wanted to counteract that.)

Eyre Medical Practice

31 Eyre Cres, Edinburgh EH3 5EU, UK – 0131 556 8842

Fantastic doctors, I am always able to get an appointment either in advance for non-urgent reasons or on the day. I really am so impressed the efficiency & friendliness or both Reception and each of the Doctors I have seen. I really feel like they take my health concerns seriously.

Very friendly staff and doctors. Very efficient service. Great child friendly reception area. Highly recommended

Blackhall Medical Centre

51 Hillhouse Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3TH, UK – 0131 332 7696

I have been with this practice since Jimmy Manson etc ( about 50 years) and have found all the staff very courteous and civil. The doctors are absolutely great and not many practices will give you an emergency appointment as quick as this one. Carry on with the good work!!!

NHS and Private Hospitals in EH5 and throughout Edinburgh

Western General Hospital

Crewe Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 2XU, UK – 0131 537 1000

Waited 10 months to be seen by a specialist, in 3 minutes he told me that achilles tendon inflammation is not treatable and sent me on my way. Why could they not have told me this 10 months ago over the phone? Waited 7 months to see a hearing specialist who told me tinnitus can't be treated and to try relax, and sent home within 5 minutes. Again, could they not have told me over the phone? Them specialists have a real easy well paid job.

My mum spent her last few days here what wonderful Doctors and Nurses they have here Best care in the World I can't praise them highly enough. Today i was in for a Ct scan it took them 19minutes from walking in the door to leaving thats Amazing😁

Ferryfield House

100 Pilton Dr, Edinburgh EH5 2HF, UK – 0131 537 6246

Great care on the rowan ward.......great staff, good food, and a very helpful ambiance. This was far superior to our 5k a month private nursing home...... and it was "free"!! My mum liked it there.

What an amazing place. The fabric of the building is a little tired but this can be excused and is more than compensated for by the wonderful staff who work there. They looked after my mum brilliantly with a lot of little touches that made my mums final few weeks very comfortable. From Mary who brought mum in a metro to read, ( just because she saw one), to the catering and cleaning staff who always had a smile and a few stories to share every single person went the extra mile. The professional care my mum received was just excellent I couldn't have asked for more. As well as making my mum comfortable Leanne and Shona took time out to make sure I was coping and offered friendly advice and a shoulder to cry on when I needed it. I will always remember Ferryfield House fondly and my advice to the team there is keep doing what you are doing it makes a huge difference.

Western General Hospital - Oncology

Crewe Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 2XU, UK – 0131 537 1000

Private Medical Clinics serving Edinburgh


Waterside House, 19 Hawthornbank Ln, Edinburgh EH4 3BH, UK – 0131 225 5656

The best place in Edinburgh for private GP services ( I have tried several). Very professional practice management able to answer any queries in a very timely manner. The nurse, Lynn is very knowledgeable and caring, able to put not only me but also my three months old son at ease. I am very happy with the service I have received.

Called Sunday at 2pm seen next day at 12. I had the kenelog injection and it's been like a switch to turn off my hayfever. From sweating and sneezing all day it's been a complete transformation and for the first time I'm enjoying the summer. Excellent service

Ultrasound Direct Edinburgh - Babybond

7-9 N St David St, Edinburgh EH2 1AW, UK – 01506 415215

I used this to get an 8 week scan when I was pregnant with my daughter. It was reasonably priced and a good professional service. Hearing the heartbeat was well worth the money because it let me know a full month before my first nhs scan that I was very likely going to keep the baby.

West End Medical Practice

36 Manor Pl, Edinburgh EH3 7EB, UK – 0131 225 5220

Always lovely ladies at the reception. Fantastic doctors, midwives and nurses. So friendly and caring. I can't praise them enough. They all have been so good and kind to myself and my family. Yes sometimes is hard to get an apoitment but some people don't get how busy it can be and they have no understanding at all. Thank you all for looking after us over the last 3 years, so sad we have to change due relocating. You've been great to us.

It's an excellent surgery. Good doctors, good receptionists, good care

Travel Clinics

Superdrug Health Clinic

83 Princes St, Edinburgh EH2 2ER, UK – 0333 311 1007

As an experienced traveler I have been to a lot of travel clinics all over the world but nurse Amy at Superdrug has without a doubt been one of the most pleasant encounters I have had. She not only provided insight and advice that saved me money, but the immunizations were painless, fast and super professional. Walking in I was not quite sure what to expect - walking out I knew I'd be back. Thanks!!

Got my vaccinations done with Laura and she was absolutely wonderful! Super nice and very knowledgeable - made my first Edinburgh travel clinic experience very comfortable and pleasant.

Trailfinders Edinburgh

14 Castle St, Edinburgh EH2 3AT, UK – 0131 243 2800

Easy to arrange holiday, good local knowledge of destination and best way to travel, very competant

Easily the best Travel Agent in the city. We have used Trailfinders twice now, once for our Honeymoon and once for my Wife's birthday. Both times the staff have been excellent. For our Honeymoon we had a rough idea of what we were looking for but very little outside of new, warm and relaxing. Our agent, Warren, talked us through a whole raft of options, swapping and chopping and changing dates, destinations and itinerary based upon our initially vague criteria. The destination we ended up with was something we never imagined or knew anything about but which turned out to be absolutely perfect. Our agent had stayed in the same area but at a different resort and his local knowledge was absolutely spot on. Any changes to our flights were communicated clearly and quickly and they also took care of transfers and tours for us. They also let the hotels know that we were on our honeymoon and each made a special effort for us on our arrival. After the faultless service we received with out Honeymoon we again returned with a slightly less vague destination but, other than a "Where" and "When". we relied wholly on our agent. Again the service was excellent with any of our "what about swapping this for that and moving this to here and can we stop off here and do x?" being quickly amended and options put to us clearly. We ended up with not only our desired destination but an extra one on top and a stop over that will allow some shopping before coming home. We used to book every part of the holiday ourselves but now we will be using Trailfinders, and especially this branch, every time we go away for more than a weekend.

STA Travel

33 George St, Edinburgh EH2 2HN, UK – 0131 261 5751

Amazing service - organised JR Rail Pass tickets very efficiently, with helpful advice. And they arrived super quickly to branch. Thanks!

I contacted STA online, which redirected me to their George Street Edinburgh store. I was helped by Peta, she gave me all the advice I was looking for and recommend me an AMAZING trip. The booking process was faultless, even though I never met Peta in person she was always at the end of the phone or email whenever I had any questions. I would really recommend booking with STA, the knowledge of the staff is brilliant, and the prices are also really good.

They took amazing care of ma gran in her last frw months

Every member of the staff is the most amazing person you could ever want to meet. Their caring and compassion for my whole family made a very difficult time that bit easier to cope with. I can't praise them enough.

St Columba's Hospice

352 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5BR, UK – 0131 555 1526

Great wee shop staff are lovely cheap aswell.

I love this charity shop mainly for it's large selection of buttons and it's section of fabrics, bedding, curtains, tea towels etc. at the back. I've found some fantastic vintage tea towels here, still in 'as new' condition which I'm hoping to repurpose into something fun. I find the cheap fabrics are great if you're just starting out with a sewing machine, as you can have a play around without spending a lot of money in case something doesn't go quite as expected! They usually have a good book selection and it's a great place to find vintage glassware as well. The prices are always very reasonable and they also sell free range farm eggs! Always worth stopping in for a poke around, there are hidden treasures to be found!

St. Columba's Hospice Bookshop

15 Montagu Terrace, Edinburgh EH3 5QR, UK – 0131 552 3994

Best charity bookshop in Edinburgh. Always a great selection and a wee table of blocks to keep kids busy.

This small charity bookstore has a great selection of second hand books in good condition at bargain prices. The stock is updated regularly and shelved in a logical order that makes it easy to browse.

Barchester - Strachan House Care Home

93 Craigcrook Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3PE, UK – 0131 336 3166

My darling wee mum is in Memory Lane. The staff are fantastic with her and not just the nursing and care staff but the cleaners, housekeepers, laundry, maintenance etc, well you get the picture. They all know my mum and her dislikes. The care taker there fixed a pram for my mum which she loves pushing about. They leave my mum to do her own thing, provided it is safe, she cleans away, pushes the pram and is just settled. The staff know my mums likes/dislikes and her history which is just amazing as we had a terrible experiences in a disgusting Bupa Care home. If it was not for Strachan House my wee mum would not be alive today. I really cant praise it enough. If you have the pleasure of visiting you will not notice any smells. Love it. Staff go all out to entertain the residents. Margaret Finch, Edinburgh.

Murrayfield House

Murrayfield House, 66 Murrayfield Ave, Edinburgh EH12 6AY, UK – 0333 999 8577

Lovely gardens and surroundings. A very peaceful place to drive into and then enter. The 'wards' are constantly being cleaned and maintained. They are very friendly and in no way overcrowded. They have wonderful facilities including an on site cafe and aforementioned gardens. The most redeeming feature is the staff. They built a wonderful relationship with my family member very quickly and took the time and patience to get to know him well. He will unfortunately not be with them much longer and is now recieving end of life care. The staff have been amazing to him and to the rest of the family. They have taken their time to sit and talk with us several times a day and have accommodated our every need. They continue to go above and beyond their care of duty and staff members returning from holidays have been to see him on their return and check in on him before their shift begins, or as soon as it begins.They are not afraid of human contact and will hold his hand or give us reassuring hugs. They don't treat anyone as a burden and will always great you with a smile and a hello. The only thing I can find fault with is that depending on where your loved ones room is located, visitors can enter without passing the nursing station. This means they are possibly unable to intercept non family members. This is no fault of the staff, and I have always seen a member of staff before entering the room, but it does allow for it especially at a time where we request only close family attend the home. We saw several homes in one day and are appauled at the standard of all the rest, bar one other HCone home, in comparison to Murrayfield house. Ours was an emergency situation and they accommodated this fantastically. We saw them in the late afternoon on the Monday, his room was cleaned and freshly painted (even though we didn't see anything that would indicate it needed. It) and he was in and settled by the Friday evening. They contacted social services several times to help us get his assessment as urgently as possible, 12 weeks reduced to 4, when we were dismissed by social service management. They even registered him with the local GP and had him seen the next working day after his arrival. We can not praise the staff enough, and as a customer service manager I can be extremely critical at times. We pay for our loved ones to be cared for and respected, Murrayfield staff excel in this and are worth every penny.

My Mum was treated with great respect and dignity during her stay at Murrayfield House, despite her increasing dementia. I also felt respected and well treated by the home. The wonderful staff were well trained and had time to care properly for the elderly. The rooms are so nice and well kept. It feels more like being in a 5 star hotel than a nursing home.

Ecosse Acupuncture Edinburgh

6 N Charlotte St, Edinburgh EH2 4HR, UK – 07982 742177

I went to see Pascal after being diagnosed with PCOS and being on progesterone for two months which made me feel awful. Pascal takes a very through history and is very professional. I already felt better just after one session and now after three months all my symptoms of PCOS are completely gone and I have a regular cycle, I am so grateful that I found an alternative way of treatment that actually works and would highly recommend this place.

I have been seeing Pascal over the last 7 years He helped so much when I was going through difficult emotional times. I also see him just to stay connected body, mind and soul. He is insightful and compassionate. Would recommend him to all.

Ming Chen Clinics

24 Bernard St, Edinburgh EH6 6PP, UK – 0131 554 0808

I saw Ran today for acupuncture. Amazing experience, thank you so much. My original complaint was that my back was in severe spasm. The pain is relieved by half at the moment and I have a lot more movement. So grateful. Thank you again.

Dr Ming was recommended to me by a friend who had had a kidney problem necessitating an investigative procedure in hospital which she did not feel well enough to attend and endure. She had consulted Dr Ming who treated her over a 6 month period and effectively brought her back to her former good health. Later I understood that her consultant was surprised to find that she no longer required any operation and that her kidneys were fine. I was a cancer patient who had survived bowel cancer which had metastisised in my liver and bile ducts. I had had 3 major operations and 2 lots of chemotherapy. A year after this, a huge cist was found on my ovary and my consultant wanted to whip these out as a natter of precaution. I consulted Dr Ming. She took my pulses - there are 6 in Chinese medicine - and she determined that my spleen was over working - 'Too much thinking!' she pronounced. Then she explained that she could perhaps get rid of the cist over 6 weeks or so, but that, given my history, I would be better advised to go through the operation and that she would give me the energy to do that and to recover quickly afterwards. I took her advice and, sure enough, after one £50 session of acupuncture (which I'd never had before) I felt like I was walking on clouds and could overcome anything. This feeling lasted 3 days till my op which all went well. Afterwards, the intensive care nurses commented on how well I looked for someone who had just been operated on. I also had this feeling of elation and positivity, knowing that the future was bright and there was no point in worrying about everything in life. I went back to Dr Ming a few weeks later for one further session. This time she applied her healing technique with her needles, deftly, swiftly and painlessly inserting them with her slim clever fingers in and around my abdomen and arms, as I recall now a few years later. The effects weren't so apparently magical as previously, but the whole experience offered by Dr Ming is one you can't really value in money terms. For £50, I was put at ease, introduced to the ancient and wise Chinese ways, I was soothed, heard and encouraged. Whilst relaxing in a quiet, clinical setting with touches of the Orient to idly rest my eyes upon, I heard gentle classical music till my racing thoughts slowed down and dispersed until I drifted off into a partial sleep. All too soon the doctor breezed back in to remove the needles - it must have been 25mins or so. Afterwards I was on a high for days. Now where can you buy an experience of well being like that for £50?

Herbal Inn

Ocean Dr, Edinburgh EH6 6JJ, UK – 0131 554 9455

I approached Herbal Inn last Friday 30th June in the hope they could help me. I have endometriosis and am awaiting to undergo surgery at the end of July. The last few weeks have been horrible & nothing was giving me any pain relief. Rather than being put on stronger painkillers by my GP, I decided to try the holistic approach instead. I am absolutely amazed at the difference, even after just one treatment. I normally have a persistent pain in my lower back but it's completely gone. I had my second treatment on Tuesday there and my third treatment yesterday. Dr Lee has been giving me a combination of acupuncture, acupressure, cupping & heat treatment. The swelling in my stomach has came down significantly and the pain has been reduced drastically. I really wish I had taken this approach a long time ago, it would have saved me a great deal of grief and pain. Better late than never..... Thank you Dr Lee!!!! And thank you Kelly too for being so nice, I'm very grateful to you both for your help and your kindness :-)

Friendly people, perfect massage.

Angela has very nurturing touch, firm but gentle at the same time. Just like mother's touch. It was easy for me to relax and enjoy every second of the massage especially with amazing essential oils blend she made for me. And the best part you get that wee happy scent to go around with you for the rest of the day. If you are in need of loving or would like to give a loving gift I would definitely recommend Aromatherapy Massage here.

Excellent service from professionals. I continue to attend as its beneficial for my wellbeing. I will definitely recommend to those who are looking for a chiropractor.

Over the past 2 years I have used Capital Chiropractic for adjustments and keeping me in good general health. I have used various other chiropractors and physios in the past however found Stuart and team very helpful, professional and accommodating which is so important. The fact they have choices on programs make it so much simpler, adjustments makes me so much more productive and not having pain. Could not recommend Stuart and team enough for their service

Health For Life Spinal Wellness Centre

56 Montrose Terrace, Edinburgh EH7 5DP, UK – 0131 477 1728

I really really recommend Health For Life clinic. Thank you everyone for your help.

Connect Chiropractic

4 S Trinity Rd, Edinburgh EH5 3NR, UK – 0131 552 8811

We decided to try chiropractic treatment for our 12 year old after we were getting nowhere with conventional medical treatment via our GP. We could not recommend Michael at Trinity Chiropractic Clinic highly enough. If there was an epitome of person-centredness, Michael is it. He is extremely patient and has the ability to gain his young patient's trust very quickly (probably through his humour and love of boys toys!) Our son has made significant progress after treatment with Michael, getting to the root cause of his symptoms. He has communicated very well with both our son and ourselves as parents, in order for us all to understand what is happening. If you are considering chiropractic treatment, you will not be disappointed with this clinic.

Friendly, professional service with sensible advice you can work into an every day routine. I've been coming here for a couple of months and most of my major 'niggles' are sorted - cheers Michael! Kept their word that after a few sessions my visits would go down to just a check up every few weeks. My gym training has improved no end as well as my every day working and social time. Was a bit sceptical at first, but I am now converted!

Great choice for essential oils...

I bought my girlfriend some vouchers as it is her birthday soon, her friend and herself both really like Fiona, one of the lady's who does massages. Victoria was really friendly and had everything, presented nicely & prepared for me so didn't take long, keeping a ticket off my car. Not sure if I would have received such a nice welcome from the other staff, but was really impressed with Victoria she knew her products very well and as I mentioned all ready she was very friendly.

Just a new way of seeing your body and changing your mindset. It is almost effortless and works so well. Thank you so much Sarah.

Over the years Sarah has done a great job of sorting out my physical problems. I highly recommend her teaching methods.

Great service! I had to get glasses quite quickly over the holidays and was able to get a eye test immediately without having booked in advance. All of the staff were very helpful and nice and the service was very efficient.

It really depends who you get. My first pair of glasses didn't have the anti-glare coating (despite being paid for) and I'm almost certain it was the display pair I was given. Visit for my second pair was excellent and they were very helpful. When I've popped in since to have my glasses tightened, they've mostly been brilliant but it really does just depend who you get on the day. On the plus side, they have an excellent range of glasses - I managed to get two pairs that suit me and I never thought I would!

Specsavers Opticians Edinburgh - Shandwick Place

14-16 Shandwick Pl, Edinburgh EH2 4RN, UK – 0131 240 8860

Good offers on two sets of designer spectacles from a nice selection of top designer ware names, such as Hugo boss, Armani, quicksilver and converse. Staff with changeable moods, like most edinburgh outlets a well mannered or faltered manner when familiarity breeds anxious manner or contempt. Inevitably the job gets done to the sufficient standard. Friendly and efficient.

Found all the staff to be very helpful when I went for new glasses. Subsequent to getting my eyes tested,Tim helped me to choose the right glasses for my shape of face etc. When I went to collect my two pairs of glasses Tim ensured they fitted properly by making any necessary adjustments. Fantastic service from Tim, and 2 cool pairs of designer glasses at competitive prices!

First time with an osteopath and David’s treatments have made a profoundly positive difference to my pain levels and overall well-being

Outstanding! Highly recommend . Thank you for fixing me and I feel so much better. Ailis sorted me out last year, Jane has worked miracles this time. Time to catch up with work.

Like many people my sedentary working life sometimes leads to back and neck tension and pain. Fortunately I always know I'll feel much better after a visit to Eyre Place Osteopathy. Over the years I've been treated by Glynis, Kenneth and Tom and can highly recommend them all for first class treatment and great preventative advice. It is great to have a place you know and trust to go when in need of care to keep you active and painfree.

Physiotherapy in EH5


7A Haddington Pl, Edinburgh EH7 4AE, UK – 07544 706807

I went to see Nick after injuring my shoulder. I booked one of his 10 minute advice appointments and he had me in for a full appointment the very next day. I am a performer, I earn my living with my body, so it is very important to me to look after it and get good treatment when I need it. Nick really understood this and gave me treatment and advice specific to my needs and abilities. He quickly assessed my injury and the weakness that had led to it and gave me treatment that immediately relieved some of the pain and added mobility. He got me well enough to participate in an important event that weekend, but was also wise in advising me about what I need in the longer term. I now have exercises that I can use to rectify the underlying problem I had. I would recommend Nick at e-physiotherapy to anyone, especially my very physically active colleagues.

Nick at E-physio is brilliant. I had excellent treatment for back issues and was assessed speedily and given advice and tailored exercises which helped me greatly. He would without a doubt be my first call in the future for treatment. He is a highly trained healthcare provider offering honest and friendly treatment with a central Edinburgh location so easily accessible too

Edinburgh Sports & Spinal Physiotherapy

93 George St, Edinburgh EH2 3ES, UK – 0131 235 2354

After injuring both knees and being unable to partake in physical activity for months, I wasn't optimistic that I'd be able to make any sort of full recovery. I'd tried foam rolling, trigger point therapy, stretching and even built my own slant-board for squats, all to no avail. I booked in with Richard and he gave me strengthening exercises for the tendons, and exercises to improve my movement patterns. I began to see incremental improvements, and after 4 months have returned to playing squash. Richard's service was very fairly priced, and I was always given 2-4 weeks of exercises to perform between visits. I can't recommend his service enough.

Me: Asst Snr Endurance Group Coach, very cynical about all therapies, especially those that require regular, repeat treatments over the long term. Training for a marathon. Concerned about a calf injury getting worse (and obviously, being a coach, I knew exactly what was wrong) Richard: Physiotherapist that understands athletes and their needs. He listened to me and all my explanations. Richard took it all in and despite my self-diagnosis he correctly identified my problem (not muscle injury but tendonosis) I expected to be told to rest but Richard was aware of my aims and gave me a targeted exercise regime and a revised training schedule to get me to the start line with 6 weeks to go. He warned me I might not make it but in the event his treatment/program worked more quickly than I had dared to hope. I was able to increase the training load after 2 weeks and felt confident I would get to the start line. There is a lot more to this story but it is enough to say I made the start line and finished in under 4 hours. I couldn't have done it without Richard. Subsequently, I have gone to Richard with 2 other problems which he has sorted. I am not on any long term plan. I've just seen Richard where he has diagnosed the problem, provided me with an appropriate treatment and effectively cured each complaint. What do you get from Richard. 1 An athlete focused physiotherapist 2 Accurate diagnosis 3 Treatment of the underlying problem, and, importantly, not just alleviation of the symptoms 4 Refined, even more targeted, treatment as the condition improves. 5 A plan that takes into account what you are trying to do/achieve (treating the whole athlete, not just the injury/complaint). 6 A trusted, respectful, knowledgeable and effective physiotherapist. What you need to do: Listen to what Richard has to say and follow through on the plan. Do the exercises. Do the stretches. Do the training. Do the reps. Richard will keep you right and you will be a better athlete afterwards.

I had a fertility massage from Rebecca today and can't recommend it enough. She takes the time to care and listen to what is happening with you. Although a massage therapist, this was a treament that I had not experienced before and it has really helped loosen up my lower back and pelvic area. I can see it being of great benefit for those trying to concieve. Thank you

First class reflexologist. Been seeing Georgie for some years for various health issues and she has always been able to help.
