My experience with Dr Astorri has been nothing but amazing. Before Dr Astorri, I was scared and confused about what my body was doing. Dr Astorri was amazing right from my first appointment, she took me seriously, talked me through the results of all my blood tests, followed through with her ‘next steps’ following results, and gave me answers. Dr Astorri is extremely thorough and attentive, which makes me feel safe and as though someone cares about my condition. Dr Astorri is extremely prompt with responding to my concerns outside of appointments and always goes the extra mile. I could not recommend Dr Astorri enough, she has made my journey with Lupus seem manageable.

I went to see Dr Astorri to investigate on my widespread pains. She approached me with a warm, calm and friendly manner, which made me feel at ease right away. She firstly check all my scan reports and history and listened to all I had to say. While she listened she also wrote everything down carefully, with a calm, collected and accurate manner. Finally she asked me specific questions to find out more and also wrote this down. She then referred me for a lot of blood tests and scans she thought I needed to find a correct diagnosis of my health problems. Dr Astorri made sure to phone me personally to let me know how the tests went and explaining exactly what they meant and what was needed for me to do afterwards, and also to avoid me worrying unnecessarily. Overall Dr Astorri is an extremely knowledgeable, competent and thorough Rheumatologist. She is keen to make the best correct diagnosis for the patient, while making sure to run all the necessary tests to help this. I'm very glad to have found her as I believe every patient deserves a doctor who cares and makes them feel safe and ultimately someone who does the best they can to help them feel better.

Coming to see Dr Astorri was the best decision I ever made. I have spent years feeling as though no one cared about what was going on with my health and maybe I was imagining my symptoms. Dr Astorri has changed this, she took the time to look at my medical history prior to our consultation, she has been extremely thorough in her investigations since then and highlighted issues immediately, she takes the time to explain things so I understand what is going on in my body, and she is there to answer my queries and treat flare ups whenever I need her help. I feel as though Dr Astorri genuinely cares about my well-being and health, something which I believe is rare to find. I could not recommend Dr Astorri enough.

I very rarely write reviews, yet very rarely do you find a doctor with all the qualities that Dr Astorri possesses. Dr Astorri is very professional, and takes the time to learn about your medical history, and address all your concerns. I have seen many doctors regarding my condition, but Dr Astorri is the first doctor who has diagnosed my condition correctly. If it was not for Dr Astorri's experience, and thorough investigation of my health, i would never have known that i was in danger of cracking my spine, and for that alone, i will be forever grateful. I cannot recommend Dr Astorri highly enough, and feel blessed to have her looking after me. Not only will Dr Astorri take care of your medical needs, she cares about her patients, and that is everything.

Dr Astorri is an exremely qualified doctor. She was recommended to me by a friend of mine and I contacted her last year in November in relation to a serious problem I still have to my back. She was extremely professional and wecloming and I immediately felt I could trust her medical advice. After the first visit, she recommended some additional exams and I am still under treatment: although I have not resolved my problems completely, I can confirm my back improved a lot and her diagnosis as of today (although not always very easy to accept for me as a patient) has always been correct. Thank you Dr Astorri!
