    My experience with Dr Astorri has been nothing but amazing. Before Dr Astorri, I was scared and confused about what my body was doing. Dr Astorri was amazing right from my first appointment, she took me seriously, talked me through the results of all my blood tests, followed through with her ‘next steps’ following results, and gave me answers. Dr Astorri is extremely thorough and attentive, which makes me feel safe and as though someone cares about my condition. Dr Astorri is extremely prompt with responding to my concerns outside of appointments and always goes the extra mile. I could not recommend Dr Astorri enough, she has made my journey with Lupus seem manageable.

    Explanation

    I went to see Dr Astorri to investigate on my widespread pains. She approached me with a warm, calm and friendly manner, which made me feel at ease right away. She firstly check all my scan reports and history and listened to all I had to say. While she listened she also wrote everything down carefully, with a calm, collected and accurate manner. Finally she asked me specific questions to find out more and also wrote this down. She then referred me for a lot of blood tests and scans she thought I needed to find a correct diagnosis of my health problems. Dr Astorri made sure to phone me personally to let me know how the tests went and explaining exactly what they meant and what was needed for me to do afterwards, and also to avoid me worrying unnecessarily. Overall Dr Astorri is an extremely knowledgeable, competent and thorough Rheumatologist. She is keen to make the best correct diagnosis for the patient, while making sure to run all the necessary tests to help this. I'm very glad to have found her as I believe every patient deserves a doctor who cares and makes them feel safe and ultimately someone who does the best they can to help them feel better.
