Helpful and reassuring

I found the video consultation with Susanna was both helpful and reassuring. I have had issues with tolerance of some HRT and have been prescribed alternatives by my own GP but don’t feel there is ever long enough to discuss everything during the short appointments. I have also found that it can be difficult to find a GP with specialist knowledge of HRT.
During the video consultation with Susanna, I felt like I had time to discuss everything that I wanted to. She gave me very useful advice and I was completely happy with her recommendations. I particularly liked receiving the consultation report so promptly, which was thorough and accurate. It felt quite a revelation, and well worth paying for, to have such a thorough and holistic consultation with detailed recommendations.

Back to being me

Finding a knowledgeable, understanding and caring Doctor when it comes to quality of life has given me a light at the end of an exceptionally long tunnel. Feeling written off and struggling with severe menopausal symptoms was really having a huge impact on my mental health and wellbeing. Covid-19 had taken away my chance to see an NHS Menopause Consultant. I was reading everything I could find on HRT and finding Dr Unsworth through the British Menopause Society and subsequently making an appointment has given ME back. The consultation with Dr Unsworth made me feel like I had a real voice and an informed decision about the medication that I required. Thank you so much Dr Unsworth.

Menopause finely explained!

If you, like me , have been searching for straight forward answers regarding your menopause Dr. Susanna Unsworth is the right person. She tells it as it is without being patronising or dismissive. She listened attentively to my health history and prescribed treatment that was carefully thought through to tailor my needs. Before talking to Dr. Unsworth I felt very anxious about my health and felt that I was not treated properly. Now I feel that there is a highly knowledgeable doctor that is on my side. I am not in a habit of going to private doctors but that was money well spent!

Reassuring and comprehensive consultation

I met with Dr Unsworth via video call to discuss my menopausal health, and I could not be more delighted by the experience. Dr Unsworth was approachable and put me at ease very quickly; I felt listened to and that the symptoms that I had been experiencing were recognised and acknowledged.
Dr Unsworth is extremely knowledgeable, and explained my treatment clearly, putting my mind at ease.
I would certainly recommend the clinic, and am glad that I plucked up the courage to go myself.

Kind and Caring

I found Dr Unsworth easy to talk to and sympathetic to my issues, which she took time to fully understand. She presented a range of treatment options explaining the pros and cons of each, and offered me a choice of routes to take. I had questions about alternative therapies, and she was knowledgeable about these and why she would or would not recommend them. I felt I was in very safe hands and am delighted to be on the road to improvement. Thoroughly recommend.

Finding a way forward

My first consultation helped me make sense of my various physical and emotional symptoms and signposted me to a number of options which could alleviate them. I look forward to testing what works best for me, and am optimistic that I will settle on a solution that helps me ‘ride the dragon’ of Menopause.

A video consultation is no barrier to the sharing of wisdom

Relief at last!

My consultation with Dr. Unsworth gave me relief in many different ways. Relief that a medical professional was able to take the time to listen to all of my concerns around menopause. Relief to obtain advice from a doctor who clearly keeps up to date with the latest research in the field of womens health. Relief to finally have someone answer all of the myriad of questions and clear up my confusion about lots of things associated with menopause, not least of which was the various different treatments. And finally, maybe most important relief to hear that the symptoms I am experiencing are related to menopause and that I can do something about it. I highly recommend that you invest time in yourself and take advantage of the online consultations being currently offered.

Detailed, considered discussion

I saw Dr Unsworth today to discuss issues related to perimenopause. She took time to listen, asked lots of questions and made several suggestions of potential strategies. She explained each one and allowed me to make the decision.

Dr Unsworth is the BEST

I cannot recommend Dr Unsworth highly enough as someone to talk to re the menopause. She is patient, kind, understanding and gives you all the time you need to talk through your worries and anxieties that are related to this difficult time in a woman’s life. She is empathetic and clearly explains all the options open to you. She answers emails as soon as you send them – often in her own time, not office hours – and nothing is too much trouble for her.

I urge you, if you’re struggling, to go and see Dr Unsworth, I am SO glad that I found her and will be forever grateful to her for all the help and advice she is giving me through this bewildering time of my life.

THANK YOU Dr Unsworth.

A very thorough consultation

I recently had a video consultation with Dr Unsworth. Dr Unsworth had studied the questionnaire I had completed prior to my consultation so was aware of my symptoms and what was troubling me. I was able to talk at length with Dr Unsworth and explore the various options available to help with my symptoms. She was very thorough and gave me the confidence to make an informed decision on the best treatment for me. Once I had decided on the treatment I wanted to have Dr Unsworth gave me full details on dosage and frequency etc. I received a full report of the consultation by email the next day together with my prescription.

Thank you for your understanding and advice. I am happy that I now have someone I can contact should I need any further support.

An empowering consultation

Prior to meeting Dr Unsworth, I’ve been seeing different GPs from my local surgery, depending on their availability, and it has been an unsettling and lengthy process — they often had to come back to me after consulting the pharmacy and/or a colleague to discuss which medication to prescribe and whether they were available. Twice, I was referred to a hospital consultant and both times they were of very little help to me. I now know that a gynecologist doesn’t necessary have training in menopause. And those I’ve seen certainly didn’t! And let’s not even mention the 6 month waiting list…

My appointment with Dr Unsworth was the best consultation I could have wished for. Dr Unsworth had studied the questionnaire one fills in when booking an appointment and she was well prepared for me. She was very thorough, clear and with interesting suggestions and tweaks to suit me. I came out of the consultation feeling trust and confidence (and even excitement !) in my new treatment.

For the first time I’m feeling safe and secure and in control as I can go back to see her if need to.

I’ve been using my new medications for nearly two weeks and already noticing big improvements and some symptoms have completely gone — I wish I had invested in my health and seen Dr Unsworth much sooner but I’m so glad that I have now: better late than never!

At last the advice I have been looking for!!

Dear Dr Unsworth

I am delighted that i have found you and I hope more women get to know about your clinic.

I have found incredibly helpful to be able to talk to a female doctor specifically about the menopause, about my personal symptoms, history and present circumstances and to have a plan tailor made to my specific requirements.

In my experience GPS don’t seem to have the time and I have been prescribed anti depressants as a way to make the problem go away. That was the only answer I have received every time I have complained about symptoms.

I was impressed with how knowledgeable, patient and caring you were during my consultation.

I have had heard a lot of confusing and contradictory facts about HRT. So much so that I was getting scared about taking it. After my consultation with you I feel far more confident and able to make an informed decision. You have told me about the most up to date research, we have been through the pros and cons and we have discussed what is available on the market that can help ease the symptoms.

Thank you so much for your help. It has made a great difference to me and I am very happy to know that I now have someone to guide me through this difficult period of my life and whom I can go to when I need a review or informed and caring advice.

All the best
