I had a telephone consultation with Professor Melvin Lobo in January and what can I say, he was so reassuring, informative and thorough.

Professor Lobo is an amazing consultant who goes the extra mile to support his complex patients. I feel very blessed to have been under his care and receiving the best support for my Dysautonomia possible!
Prof Lobo is very thorough, as well as warm & caring. He listens to the complex issues that you're experiencing as his patient and goes out of his way to find solutions to these situations. Extremely kind & caring which makes a massive difference to someone who is already dealing with complicated situations.
This is just based on one appointment as I have just have my excellent first consultation with Dr Lobo - he is remarkably good; upbeat, enthusiastic and very fast but incredibly thorough. Obviously he has huge understanding of the illness and processes, he gets straight to business quickly assessing a lot of info and incisively cutting through all sorts of confusing symptoms which other Drs have missed for decades. We had a lot to cover in our first contact going over my whole 15 yr disability which consists of multiple comorbid illnesses, and we got through the whole history process of diagnosis via tests exclusions etc current issues treatment recs and possible protocols. The only few possibly significant things we missed which he may need to know were things which I forgot to mention due to my illness so I'll email that in to Dr Lobo and was not his fault it was me &; my slow processing neuro issues. Dr Lobo himself was excellent, and I am very grateful for the consultation & for his professional input indeed. Brilliant!
