    My daughter consulted Dr Coakley almost a year after being very ill with sepsis. She has recovered well but has lingering post-illness (chronic) fatigue. Dr Coakley was sympathetic and reassuring in addressing our concerns. At a time when we, as a family, have felt worried and a little helpless after the shock of the illness, Dr Coakley’s thoughtful and considerate approach has been helpful in allaying our fears and hugely supportive too. Highly recommended.

    Dr Coakley's advice to our daughter Lara was clear, considered and well explained. We came away from the experience feeling that we had been well listened to and with a road map of how to take things forward to try to get Lara better. We adopted Dr Coakley's suggestions and I am happy to say that Lara is already showing clear signs of improvement, although we realise a full recovery may be some way off. We are extremely grateful for his professional opinion and for giving us his time.
