    The most useful and constructive appointment I've had with a medical professional in a number of years. For the first time since being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, in January 2016, do I feel that I am finally being listened to seriously and that my further symptoms are going to be investigated further. Thank you very much, Mr. Prentice.
