    Professor Till was extremely good with my Daughter. She has had an Allergy for some time and we turned to Professor Till for help. He made her feel totally comfortable was extremely attentive during her appointment with him. We are awaiting the results of his findings but are hopeful that he will will get to the bottom of the problem. I would highly recommend Professor Till.

    I have only positive things to say about my experience with Professor Till. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain things clearly and in such a way that was easy for me to understand. He made me feel at ease throughout my appointment and made recommendations on steps I could take in the future which I did not expect as it was not the reason for my visit. Highly recommend.

    Professor Till listened and reviewed my case and came up with sensible next steps. No clearer understanding of exactly what my reactions were triggered by but suggested skin prick tests will hopefully give me a clearer picture. Overall experience was a positive one.

    I was particularly nervous about this appointment and the symptoms I had been experiencing, I am pleased to say that I could not have selected better Consultant and I left the appointment feeling very reassured. Prof. Till was well prepared and informed of my symptoms/history ahead of my consultation. I found him to be very patient, understanding and empathetic, I was particularly anxious to receive my test results, which he offered to email me at the earliest opportunity rather than asking me to wait for his clinic letter - I was very grateful for this. Prof. Till took the time to explore my wider medical history and general allergy questions, he even demonstrated how to use an Epipen (which I have never had, even after having an anaphylactic allergy for 10 years) and welcomed completely unrelated questions I had about allergy risk and introduction of allergens to my baby (I visited during my 3rd trimester of pregnancy). Such a wonderful Consultant, I would always return to his clinic for any allergy concerns.

    Dr. Till was very personable and puts you at ease. His explanations are very concise and clear, and he’s happy to answer any questions, even if you might consider them silly. Just a great balance between professionalism and bedside manner.

    Overall, this experience was a very good one indeed: - the appointment started late (due to a prior patient whose appointment overran) but this is inconsequential...I was just grateful to be seeing a doctor about my condition - got an appointment early (due to a cancellation). - the Professor was most apologetic of the lateness and explained. - great bedside manner - he was mild-mannered, very patient - took the time to really listen to 'chain of events' which had led me to the consultation. He immediately understood the issue at hand - he even gave some examples of symptoms which I was experiencing but had not as yet stated at that point of the consultation which resonated with me/my experiences of the history of the condition. He provided a detailed, step-by-step explanation with use of visuals (to aid my understanding) of what was happening to me which was highly appreciated and valued. My one quibble would be lack of communication when it came to securing an appointment... after a number of emails and calls, I had very little feedback as to the status of my referral... It was quite frustrating that over a week later, I was being informed that my referral letter had not even been read...not the greatest news for me, as I was in the midst of another episode of my condition. Nonetheless, it is a small niggle - I kept calling and was able to secure an appointment, due to a cancellation - so grateful for small mercies!

    Had a very helpful session with Dr. Till - very professional, extremely pleasant and reassuring! Being in the right hands was half the job done. His advise was extremely useful and I'm very glad I consulted with him. Couldn't recommend and rate any higher.
