Appointment with Shirley Ryan re: hormones

This was my first appointment and it went perfectly. The clinic is easy to find, reception is helpful and there is a nice waiting area with free tea and coffee. There were forms to complete but as I was early I had plenty of time.

Shirley Ryan was wonderful. The format of the appointment and what it would include was explained at the start, and I felt entirely at ease throughout. Shirley is not only professional but also warm and fun.

The assessment was extremely thorough, covering health and personal history, and all treatment options were covered, with reference to what would be suitable for me individually. It seemed to me that Shirley went above and beyond to help get me where I want to be. All my questions were answered and I came away happy that I understood the process going forward, especially as I cannot get shared care with my GP.

Regarding my future care with LTC I have no concerns, and Shirley was keen to stress that they are there to provide support if and as necessary between appointments.
