    I cannot express my thanks enough. I met Dr Low at 38 weeks because I had been going via the NHS and required a medical csection but due to a series of failures on its part, they had not booked anything and understandably I was distressed. I contacted my insurer and within 24hours I had spoken with Dr Low and scheduled a face to face meeting for the next day. She spoke with compassion and understanding. I sent her my previous scans and I honestly could have cried at the relief I felt to actually speak to a consultant who understood my fears but made me feel so at ease. We spoke throughout via phone at WhatsApp. She also worked tirelessly to get me a date booked and understood that I was still looking at the NHS so I felt as though I had options. I'm confident that you won't find a better consultant who is so warm, compassionate and understanding. Just use her, don't question it!

    My third consultation appointment over 4 years with Dr Low, I know she is the go to DR with anything Gynae related! We met when she delivered my first baby by C section in 2017, & I wouldn’t see anyone else now. Her bed side manner is something else, she has a wonderful nature, is kind & empathetic to your condition. She’s super easy to talk to & takes the time to explain treatment plans. I wouldn’t see anyone else! Once again, thank you Dr Low.
