“Professor Claire Hopkins was very kind and understanding. She explained my condition and available treatments to me and gave me hope about possible future treatments for my condition. I had struggled to get a diagnosis for some years but within minutes the Professor explained exactly what was wrong and started me on the road to control it. I came away from my consultation feeling very optimistic about the future living with Samters.“
