“Within my first consultation with Dr Aylwin, I was given more information, definitive answers and understanding than in the previous 5 years, seeing specialist after specialist. Dr Aylwin listens to me and has systematically tackled each area of concern with great results that I would not have been able to achieve otherwise. With Saxenda I have achieved a weight loss of 15lbs in 2-months with negligible side effects. Dr Aylwin has always taken into account what matters to me and he has given me great peace of mind on many would-be concerns associated with PCOS.“
