    We were referred to Dr Rachel Byng-Maddick in the midst of the crisis, my mother developed rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis taking over her body, despite many complications with us. The doctor was incredibly understanding and empathetic; she gave us an appointment immediately after having our video conference. At her reception, everyone at Royal Brompton & Harefiled hospital was welcoming and extremely helpful despite the on-going crisis. Everything was very clean and organized; the sign in process was very simple and smooth. The doctor approached us with a smile, always listens to our concerns and makes sure we understand the protocol we will be working on. She examined my mother thoroughly like an officer to understand as much about the case, I cannot speak highly enough of her professionalism and expertise. We follow up every two weeks and the doctor is very understanding with our hassles, humane I must say, stuff happens. Sorry doc. Dr Maddick and her staff are extremely pleasant and more than helpful. I have to say I am grateful for her taking us, truly caring and for receiving this quality of care. My mother feels comfortable and well looked after, for myself I will always be in debt to the doctor. Thank you to the entire Docs Team.

    Rachel and I have been working together for sometime now. My spinal patients often have complex needs and sometimes require rheumatological review. Working with rachel means that she knows my point of view and how to make things relevant in a context for me without having to prompt her. We discuss cases together routinely and she always gives me a point of view I hadn't considered. She is an excellent rheumatologist with fantastic bedside manners and a way of thinking which I find always helpful and insightful.
