    Explanation

    Patient seen for:
    I had an inital session with Dr Pieles where we discussed my health, his broader work in the area of my problems, and my options for testing and future treatment. My experience with Dr Pieles was excellent, from the perspective of a keen amateur athlete and busy professional, but without any detialed clinical knowledge. Dr Pieles understood my sporting ability and commitments, but was also direct enough to challenge my thinking about my health where it lacked the proper evidence. The first virtual appointment was the best clinical experience I've had regarding my chronic condition. it gave me confidence that it was the correct path for me to take with my health needs.
