“My experience with Ms Hickling was excellent. Given the anxiety I suffer with any sort of medical assessment, she was quick to put me at ease with her comforting tone and make me feel assured I was in good hands. She was keen to listen to the story behind my condition, and did well to explain to me what and how my lifestyle may be causing/ affecting it. The way in which she advised and discussed with me her recommended next steps and who next to see made me feel as if there was a solution to the problem, which is what we all inevitably want. Her experience in this field is clear to see. I would happily advise all to see Ms Hicklin. “
