    A positive experience meeting Sophie. I almost gave up as it’s been difficult living with my colostomy. Sophie has patiently helped me to identify causes and treatment. It’s still work in progress but couldn’t have done it without her 😊

    Very knowledgeable and used the time to ensure all necessary advice was given. Having struggled for tailored advice from NHS was delighted to receive the required dietary advice personalised to match my specific issues and needs. Very friendly and keen to offer as much professional support as I needed.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I sought out Sophie Medlin as a dietitian after finding she and I believe all of City Dietitians use an evidence-based, health-at-every-size approach, following advice from my gastroenterologist regarding treatment for chronic ideopathic constipation and possible gastroparesis that led to a long history of disordered eating. Sophie is incredibly friendly and professional, easy to talk to, very sympathetic when I described the more personal facets of my relationship with food which included mental health, and most of all very informed and helpful. She was able to provide me with a plan for eating during the crisis phases of my treatment and always encouraged me to look forward into a future of less restricted eating and more freedom with food, and helped me problem dolce around my anxieties and health concerns, even ones I thought were silly. She offered simple, affordable, and accessible alternatives that gave me more control over the nutritional quality of my daily diet and offered many alternatives when I found I would likely have to live a life without foods that, for example, are high in dietary fiber, informing me of foods with soluble fibers that provide useful nutritional benefits while still being comfortable to eat. I felt like speaking with her allowed my relationship with food to open up, and my progress in treatment alongside her encouragement have given me a significantly more comfortable relationship with food in general. I will be forever grateful for everything she and her team have done for me, and would recommend City Dietitians to anybody in need of these kinds of services in a heartbeat.

    What can I say? Ms Medlin is simply the best dietician anyone could hope to have. She makes you feel at ease and comfortable in her presence. With this in mind, you are never made to feel foolish asking questions. Ms Medlin made me feel safe and secure and with this in mind, you are never made to feel foolish asking questions. I cannot thank Ms Medlin enough for her help.
