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.
Dr Byng-Maddick is a fantastic Rheumatologist and colleague, with expertise in managing the full spectrum of joint and soft tissue disorders. She has a great bedside manner and is highly respected by both her patients and colleagues. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to my patients.
