Dr Hassan was understanding, thorough and thoughtful in her approach. She explained everything clearly and was willing to answer all the questions I had. She was clear about the plan and also understood what I hoped for, being realistic, and having my best interests in mind throughout. So grateful for the time and expertise she gave me.

Dr. Amal Hassan is the most incredible sports doctor. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the field of female athlete health and wellbeing. She has helped me (as a recreational "athlete") begin my journey of physical rehabilitation and recovery after a history of an eating disorder and recent RED-S and physical injuries. She is kind, patient and has incredibly bedside manner; making her the ideal support for anyone who is dealing with complex issues that bridge the mental-physical gap that is so often neglected in the medical world. It is clear she cares deeply about the wellbeing of her patients. I have full confidence in Dr Hassan as an experienced professional, who goes the extra mile to ensure her patients feel supported, well-looked after and secure in their treatment plans going forward.
