    After reading many positive online reports I contacted Toby regarding advice on an elevated blood reading which indicated possible sarcoidosis, following a severe Covid Viral infection. We had a video consultation and he arranged a CT scan of my lungs. He then organised a follow up consultation and talked me through my issues etc. He is very thorough, pleasant to speak with and very knowledgeable. His Practice Manager Maggie is excellent, she adds great value to the whole interaction process and makes sure everything happens smoothly.

    I contacted Professor Maher on behalf of my mother after a recent diagnosis had left our family with uncertainty, fear and confusion around next steps. Professor Maher could not have been more helpful or approachable, we felt supported from the very first contact and we were provided with more clarity than we had received in the 8 months prior. All conversations were managed with empathy and understanding, which certainly helped my mother to feel "less of a nuisance". We are now in a position where we have clear information, a better than hoped for prognosis and feeling we have support we can rely on for the next phases of treatment. Thank you.

    I have been seeing Professor Maher for many years now and have always found him to be methodical, calm and attentive no matter how concerning or confusing the situation appears to me. Those traits are highly appreciated in a medical professional together with his ability to identify and focus on the items that are important to reach the appropriate diagnosis and to prescribe a subsequent treatment.

    Interstitial Lung Disease
    Having been diagnosed with a serious lung complaint, I recently contacted the the RB and enquired about an appointment with Prof. Dr Maher, as I wanted to better identify and understand my condition. I was impressed with the way in which my approach was handled from the beginning. There was a speedy response to my initial enquiry, at a time when the Corona Virus pandemic was beginning to cause serious problems, and an online video consultation with Dr Maher set up within a week. Dr Maher and his secretary had obtained all my relevant medical notes and he was able to talk me through my condition and reassure me on a number of counts. I found Dr Maher and his staff to be throughly professional, courteous and helpful. I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Dr Maher and thanking him and his secretary, Maggie for making what was a stressful matter as easy as possible. Many Thanks.

    Toby has been instrumental in the treatment and improvement of my fathers severe case of interstitial lung disease. As it was so bad, my father had difficulty speaking let alone travelling, so I have had to seek telephone consultations with Toby. The appointments get arranged rapidly, and Toby always spends ample time on the phone getting all the relevant information and discussing options. His knowledge on the matter is second to none, and his service and professionalism is excellent. For anyone suffering any kind of lung disease, he is highly, highly recommended. Am truly grateful for all of his assistance

    From start of consultation put me at ease by explaining very clearly his thoughts on my condition and which tests to do to investigate. He understood my fears and put my mind at rest regarding these. The tests were organised very quickly and the follow up to discuss went very well with professor Maher again explaining at length what treatment should follow. He didn’t just explain what the tests showed, he also explained what they didn’t show. I found his manner very open and approachable, no question too trivial.

    My appointment process and instructions were most professional. Professor Maher: very very courteous, great mannerisms to the point of being inspirational for my condition, extremely knowledgeable; checked me thoroughly (many consultants do not); very meticulous and precise and explanations at pace that was easy to digest. I had lots of questions and with hindsight some not very good but Professor Maher reached out to me and I felt comfortable in asking more questions. Unfortunately, I've had to go for quite a few medical consultations in past fifteen years on other matters Mount Sinai in NY; Professor Maher and his unit stand out at 11 out of 10.

    On arrival at The clinic I was greeted by friendly and efficient staff who led me through to very comfortable surroundings. I did not have long to wait before being called into the consultation room. The Professor was very charismatic which made me feel at ease and( of course as the outcome was more positive than I thought ) relieved. I would recommend anyone with respiratory issues to visit Professor Toby Maher.
