“The most useful and constructive appointment I've had with a medical professional in a number of years. For the first time since being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, in January 2016, do I feel that I am finally being listened to seriously and that my further symptoms are going to be investigated further. Thank you very much, Mr. Prentice. “

A note to sincerely thank you for your generosity last week. I especially want to thank you for your generous recognition of all I have been through over the years. Apart from my partner and mother, no one has ever really acknowledged the strength I have needed. Our session was a profound and cathartic experience for me, and I truly thank you.

We didn't realise it was the last appointment with you, so didn't say thank you and goodbye. It was always a pleasure to come to see you. We appreciate your care and kindness. Wishing you the best and thanks once again.
