Explanation

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. I would highly recommend her for any active female needing advice!
