    I felt from the beginning that I was in good hands with Dr Hull; he instilled a feeling of confidence and safety, took time to listen and respond to what I said with great respect – the mark of a good doctor is that he acts as if he can learn from you, and seems alive to the process of discovery and healing with the patient. The diagnosis he arrived at relieved me after a long period of anxiety and uncertainty, and his clear approach to treatment was reassuring. I appreciated Dr Hull's kindness and humanity, and felt that he really cared.

    I would highly recommend Dr Hull, particularly for treating one as an individual rather than a type. He is keen to listen to what you have to say. He is personable and very helpful. His follow up is also excellent, which is particularly important with a chronic condition. His IT skills are excellent which certainly does not apply to many of the consultants I have seen over the years. I would particularly recommend him to athletic people of all ages with asthma of any severity

    Dr Hull has been helping me with a difficult asthma flare up for several months now. He is very clear in his explanations and methodical in the way he goes about diagnosing exactly what the issue is and deciding on the best way to treat it. I am very happy with the way he has helped me so far and I am sure that we will get to the bottom of the problem.

    I work with Dr Hull regularly as a colleague both in the NHS and the private sector. He has a significant knowledge and experience of respiratory disease in both adults and elite sportspeople and is always available and informative to discuss these cases with. I would recommend him strongly, and will continue to call on his services whenever the situation requires it with confidence.
