Explanation
Bedside Manner
Dr Byng-Maddick listened attentivelly, provided insight, prescribed the correct set of exams and reviewed them thoroughly. She has a calm and attentive bedside manner and made herself available should there be any further issues. She was also very understanding of my personal circumstances at the time. I wish I had asked about a couple of other things and there were symptoms I was (and still am experiencing) from a different condition altogether. I suppose it would have been too much to ask Dr Byng-Maddick to establish that connection and that is what I perceive to be the downside of seeing a specific consultant and only covering symptoms presumably associated with their area of expertise, whereas a more holistic, albeit brief, perspective, will sometimes make a significant difference in the early detection of certain issues or conditions. I would recommend Dr Byng-Maddic for a rheumathological condition.
