Paul Brennan is a quiet and gentle person who exudes patience and offers time and something we are definitely not used to: a listening ear. He asks a question and waits to hear the reply! My daughter and I felt heard, respected and Midge's experiences were validated. The clinic letter was sent in a timely fashion. Paul's receptionist is absolutely lovely too. Paul has even been in touch since our original appointment when we had issues with our paediatrician. I honestly can't recommend him highly enough. I regularly recommend Paul to other people struggling to get a diagnosis through the NHS. Thanks Paul

Dr Brennan was wonderful - he fully explained the process of genetic testing and the implications of the results for myself and our family in a way that enables us to make an informed decision about proceeding with the test.

Very polite, clearly knows what he is talking about! Explained in detail to me and was not rushed. I was presented with options and an honest opinion. This allowed an informed decision on next steps. Reassuring Dr knew some of my other consultants. Dr could have taken advantage to get more sessions but the honest and explained reasoning basically informed me that the value to me of having further tests was low. I really recommend Dr Brennan. Perhaps a bit strange to say, but I really enjoyed my visit and left with options and hope.

I saw Dr Brennan for some genetic testing for a rare condition that I recently discovered I may have inherited. I cannot speak highly enough of him for the manner in which he handled a very difficult situation. He was incredibly knowledgeable but arguably more importantly, struck the perfect balance of reassurance and realism.

Dr. Brennan was the first positive experience of a medical professional that I've had in over 12 years. He listened to my concerns, validated them and took me seriously. He provided clear explanations for my chronic symptoms, and advised on the necessary investigations to confirm a diagnosis and manage potential risk. I finally have the correct explanation for my difficulties (though more research Is needed!) and a treatment plan to ensure that I get the right care to manage my conditions moving forwards. I can't thank you enough, and I'm sure I will be in contact again for more advice in the future.

My two children and I saw Dr Brennan for assessment of hEDS. I found Dr Brennan extremely thorough and knowledgeable- and he was able to also engage our autistic son well. Dr Brennan had a good understanding of the difficulties we faced as a family unit and provided reassurance and validation. A very nice doctor to see - we would highly recommend.

Highly recommended- We travelled as a family from Northern Ireland to Dr Brennan’s London clinic, in regard to our 17 year old son. Dr Brennan immediately put us at ease and was extremely patient as he listened to an extensive medical history and summary of our journeys towards diagnoses, including my own diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Dr Brennan examined our son and made a clinical diagnosis of hEDS. We arranged a further appointment for our 14 year old daughter and we experienced the same level of professionalism. Once again there was a diagnosis of hEDS; followed by a comprehensive report for us to share with our health professionals. We really appreciated his kind and caring approach and would highly recommend Dr Brennan to anyone concerned that they may have EDS.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)
I saw Dr Brennan to get his expert opinion on what I thought was probably hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome but had been severely invalidated by numerous NHS specialist teams I've seen. I'm very complex (or a few others might say "complicated") and have signifiant history of mental health issues. I am aware EDS is notoriously hard to get validated as a diagnosis, but because of my MH issues, specialists were even more keen to conclude "its in your head because of you past traumas". I am still on a diagnostic journey with my different specialists trying to get them on board with my physical problems being linked to EDS, its only the mere start but thanks to Dr Brennan's specialist knowledge and excellent clinic letter this is really going to help on this complicated journey! Dr Brennan is very caring, validating and very knowledgeable. His clinic letter was so refreshing that unlike all other clinic letters didn't start off going off on one about my "significant mental health issues".... Thank you for the validation I so desperately needed! Life changing. Literally!

Although I had a short interaction with Dr. Brennan I found his explanation very clear. He was very interested in my family history and my concern relating to breast cancer risk. He presented to me with a graphical support the various genes which may impact the development of risk cancer and recommended, based on his experience, the best test that I should take. I felt very comfortable in his presence and trust his experience and knowledge in the matter.
