I have only positive things to say about my experience with Professor Till. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain things clearly and in such a way that was easy for me to understand. He made me feel at ease throughout my appointment and made recommendations on steps I could take in the future which I did not expect as it was not the reason for my visit. Highly recommend.

Professor Till listened and reviewed my case and came up with sensible next steps. No clearer understanding of exactly what my reactions were triggered by but suggested skin prick tests will hopefully give me a clearer picture. Overall experience was a positive one.

I was particularly nervous about this appointment and the symptoms I had been experiencing, I am pleased to say that I could not have selected better Consultant and I left the appointment feeling very reassured. Prof. Till was well prepared and informed of my symptoms/history ahead of my consultation. I found him to be very patient, understanding and empathetic, I was particularly anxious to receive my test results, which he offered to email me at the earliest opportunity rather than asking me to wait for his clinic letter - I was very grateful for this. Prof. Till took the time to explore my wider medical history and general allergy questions, he even demonstrated how to use an Epipen (which I have never had, even after having an anaphylactic allergy for 10 years) and welcomed completely unrelated questions I had about allergy risk and introduction of allergens to my baby (I visited during my 3rd trimester of pregnancy). Such a wonderful Consultant, I would always return to his clinic for any allergy concerns.

Overall, this experience was a very good one indeed: - the appointment started late (due to a prior patient whose appointment overran) but this is inconsequential...I was just grateful to be seeing a doctor about my condition - got an appointment early (due to a cancellation). - the Professor was most apologetic of the lateness and explained. - great bedside manner - he was mild-mannered, very patient - took the time to really listen to 'chain of events' which had led me to the consultation. He immediately understood the issue at hand - he even gave some examples of symptoms which I was experiencing but had not as yet stated at that point of the consultation which resonated with me/my experiences of the history of the condition. He provided a detailed, step-by-step explanation with use of visuals (to aid my understanding) of what was happening to me which was highly appreciated and valued. My one quibble would be lack of communication when it came to securing an appointment... after a number of emails and calls, I had very little feedback as to the status of my referral... It was quite frustrating that over a week later, I was being informed that my referral letter had not even been read...not the greatest news for me, as I was in the midst of another episode of my condition. Nonetheless, it is a small niggle - I kept calling and was able to secure an appointment, due to a cancellation - so grateful for small mercies!

Professor Till was great- he spoke to us at great length about what I could potentially have and is going to refer me to someone else as my problem is not his area of expertise. Overall he was really calm and very considered in his manner of speaking and explaining. He was also very good at listening to what I had been experiencing and understood the stress I was in. Recommended.

Superb doctor who really inspires confidence - no mean feat for a patient who is pretty jittery after experiencing serious allergy symptoms for the first time in their 40s. I would absolutely recommend him to others. An ability to genuinely listen and understand concerns, answers questions in a considered way with the help of useful explanations, puts complex medical issues in a way that is simple for lay people to understand, and very approachable and personable. You can see why he's at the top of his game. Supported by a brilliant team led by Caroline. Highly impressed by how responsive, accommodating, efficient and pleasant she manages to be despite how busy the clinic obviously is - one of the very best medical office managers I've come across. Big thanks to you all.

I have been a patient of Dr. Till's for several years. When I first met him, my symptoms were quite severe, uncontrolled and taking a toll on me emotionally. What struck me the most about Dr. Till was that he listened to me without once making me feel rushed, was completely sympathetic and clearly wanted to help me. His medical knowledge is up-to-date and top-notch and he explained the science behind my condition in medical and lay-man's terms. He is diligent about follow-up and is very responsive when you have a question. I recommend him highly to all of my friends and colleagues.

Dr Till was great. My case had some urgency and he (and his assistant) did everything in their power to speed things up for me. Dr Till was very clear in his explanations, very kind and empathetic. I wish all doctors were as kind and respectful to patients as he was.

Professor Till is everything you would hope for in a doctor. He is highly knowledgeable and experienced but also kind, thoughtful, patient and happy to answer questions in detail. He has the ability to clearly explain complex ideas without a trace of becoming patronising. I would recommend this brilliant allergy specialist to anyone.

Dr Till was very knowledgable, thorough and frank which I appreciated. In my scenario he recommended that no further testing was required at this stage proving to me that he is dedicated to providing an accurate diagnosis and not just one that he could profit from as some other doctors sometimes do. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Till and will book to see him again if I need allergy advice in the future.

I found Prof Dr Till to be very knowledgeable and able to quickly offer alternative explanation of symptoms, thus clearing the path to investigation for differential diagnosis. Given that I often suffered allergy like symptoms and raised IGE levels, plus some signs of food allergies, but had otherwise clean blood test results, I wanted to get the help of a true expert and scientist. I also found Prof Till to be friendly and approachable and fast thinking.
