He was very clear in his explanations to both myself and my sixteen year old son (the patient) whilst at the same time being very reassuring. He was very easy to talk to and took time to answer all of our questions. His secretary was also delightful to deal with so overall a very positive experience.

Dr. Hull discussed my medical condition in depth and reviewed my previous investigations thoroughly. He also shared with me, as a fellow medic, the most recent approach, medication and recommendations. Regarding my condition. I am looking forward to my follow up consultation with Dr. Hull.

I went to see Dr Hull with a list of questions. He was excellent - he took his time and patiently answered each one, providing really clear explanations. I would thoroughly recommend Dr Hull - if I had a similar problem again, I would have no hesitation in going back to see him. Thank you very much, Dr Hull.
