Dr Duffy was kind, friendly, relaxed and understanding. Her explanations were well pitched to be easily understandable but not condescending, and she was open and welcoming of questions throughout. The length of the appointment meant that there was no hurry and things that I remembered (often randomly!) part way through the consultation could be addressed. By the end of the consultation I felt both reassured and hopeful. The prescription arrived promptly (it was a bit like Christmas!) as did the post consultation notes.

I wish I had made an appointment a long time ago and although I don't know how things will turn out, I feel that this has been a very positive start and have already recommended Dr Duffy to friends who are in the same position.

My appointment with Dr Alice Duffy was everything I hoped it would be. She put my mind to rest with her knowledge and understanding. She gave me the reassuring advice that I had been seeking to start my HRT journey. Wish I had contacted her years ago.

Having struggled with worsening Perimenopausal symptoms for the last 18 months, I wanted to have more than a 5 minute GP consultation to discuss options. A friend recommended Dr Duffy, so I booked a consultation and despite it being a video consultation she immediately made me feel at ease. I felt the consultation was extremely thorough, with a clear explanation of symptoms and treatment options. I was so relieved to have had the time to discuss everything in detail and now feel excited at the prospect of getting back to a more "normal" me. Amazingly, after just under 1 week of starting on HRT I have already noticed an improvement in my symptoms, with a reduction in hot flushes and night sweats and more importantly I had the best nights sleep that I have had for at least 18 months. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Duffy!

Becky
Very useful sound advice. It was great to discuss my options with someone knowledgeable and understanding.

Helen
I was initially very apprehensive about this appointment following many disappointing appointments with my GP where I was brushed off and dismissed and not offered any help. It was such a relief to finally be listened to and to find a medical practitioner with such experience, knowledge and understanding. In addition, Dr Duffy has great empathy and a cracking sense of humour (which always helps, especially when discussing some intimate symptoms) and at the end of this first consultation I felt a massive sense of relief and also hopeful that at last someone was able to help alleviate some of the awful symptoms I had been suffering for a long time.

Alison
I found that to me it was the first time that anyone properly listened to me. I was made to feel that I was important, my needs were important and that help was available. I have recommended my sister to get in touch and I am not one to normally recommend anything. Everything about my consultation was exceptional. Dr Alice Duffy was so easy to talk too and made me feel comfortable enough to talk about everything. So grateful to her.

Karen
I was recommended to Health in Menopause by my Physiotherapist - and have already recommended to more than 1 person. To speak to somebody who totally understands what you are going through - and that we all encounter different challenges - but who manages to normalise this - is worth their weight in gold! Just talking to her really helped.

Rachel
Amazing to have a frank and honest conversation and to explore all the options - never felt rushed or uncomfortable . Wish I had done it a year ago
Thanks

Alison
Thank you Dr Alice, it was quite a relief to speak to you. I thought you listened and took on board all my comments . I learned a lot from your wisdom and it helped ease my worries. Many thanks.

Fiona
I can’t thank Dr Alice Duffy enough. She was very professional in her approach and managed to put me at ease within the first couple of minutes. It’s early days but for the first time in nearly a year my headaches have eased and I feel so positive. Thank you!

Katie
Best money I have ever spent! I could chat to Dr Alice all day, what a really lovely lady. I have put a recommendation out on Facebook so expect to be inundated by everyone I know! I will also be booking an appointment for my mother-in-law as a treat to help get her sorted too :)

Gail
Such a relief after many years knowing my symptoms were related to hormonal changes for a professional to validate this for me. I had been told by various GPS that it was PMT and basically to manage it, that HRT causes increased risk of stroke etc. It all felt like a maze of information and that all my options were risky and difficult to make happen. I loved the swiftness involved in making an appointment and getting treatment. I have been taking the estrogen gel for a few days now and already feel more balanced. Discussing this issue with Dr Duffy opened me into a much better understanding of what is happening as I navigate the perimenopause and I've since done some research on the treatment and feel really hopeful it will continue to make a big difference. Thank you !

Sam
A really positive experience that I have already recommended to most of my friends, even the ones who are much younger, so they’re prepared!
Dr Duffy was great, easy to talk to and I felt listened to and understood. She is clearly very knowledgeable about menopause and HRT and it was really interesting discussing this with her.
My prescription arrived within 24hrs, no hassle at all.
An absolutely worth while investment in staying healthy and happy!

Alex
My video consultation was extremely informative and Dr Duffy put me instantly at ease. It was easy to discuss varied personal issues and I found her to be knowledgeable and thorough. I have since had a follow-up telephone consultation and feel very reassured that I am receiving the best care. I now feel positive and in control of my menopause journey.

Kim
Alice is amazing - I felt listened to and understood. I now feel reassured that I have a professional that can advise and help me through my menopause journey

Lisa
Friendly and approachable, informative and sensitive, with a healthy dose of humour!

Helen
Alice was incredible. Friendly, put me at ease immediately. She is incredibly knowledgeable and treats you like a friend. Her advice is clear, practical and easy to understand. She also understood the way I felt and made me feel normal. Thank you so much!

Nel
Dr Duffy”s knowledge & passion about women’s health left me feeling very positive about the future.

Asifa
Dr Duffy really knows her “stuff”. All options considered are backed up by information and facts. She is very easy to talk to and making you feel at ease.

Geraldine
I am in a facebook group and a lady kindly recommended Dr Alice Duffy. I was hesitant as I'd never used private healthcare before and it is a financial commitment.
From the first moment of the call Alice was friendly, understanding and knowledgeable. To have such genuine holistic interest in your condition is worth the commitment, and Alice works with my GP to get the best care for me.
Thank you so much.

Sharon
So happy with my consultation, I felt better already for speaking to Alice,
she was so understanding and reassuring & just what I needed.
I have already recommended to all my friends!!
Thanks Alice xxx

Anneli
From the moment I came face to face with Dr Alice Duffy on my laptop I felt like she had taken hold of both my hands and didn’t let go until the call ended. Its rare to feel such an immediate affinity with someone you have never met, particularly when faced with talking about something so personal.
Not only did I feel understanding and empathy, she normalised my issues and I feel sure that with her guidance I can make some real progress.

Fiona
Dr Duffy really listened and actively asked lots of questions about my circumstances, history and how my symptoms are affecting me. This enabled her to design an intervention program tailored specifically to me. It was such a relief to be taken seriously by a health professional for a change. Although I've only been on the treatment program for a few days, I am already noticing benefits to my mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Thank you so much!

Monique
I am so glad that I took the plunge and made the appointment with Alice. It was a virtual appointment. Alice was lovely to talk to. I didn’t feel embarrassed talking about more personal details and I felt completely at ease. Everything was explained simply and I’m thankful to know that I am not going crazy. If you’re not sure of your symptoms and your GP is not listening then please don’t suffer any longer and book an appointment. It will be the best decision you will make for yourself.

Elaine
I can highly recommend Health in Menopause and Dr. Duffy. It was a wonderful consultation and also the overall service too. Dr. Duffy was incredibly professional and knowledgeable, but also very kind and understanding. I also called the office and spoke to Lisa who was very helpful and friendly too, and got back to me very efficiently with a query I had.
I received my prescription through the post within 2 days of the consultation.
A wonderful service from start to finish, from all involved!

Emily
It was great to have that 1 to 1 support and to be really listened to. Dr Duffy is highly trained and thorough in her approach something you don’t get in a 5 min appointment with a general GP. I would highly recommend this service.

Mandy
Dr Duffy was very thorough, helpful and understanding and takes a holistic approach.

Jill
Excellent, professional service and I have already recommended to a friend !

Sarah
I felt extremely at ease. I felt I was able to talk freely with absolute honesty and was given non-judgemental, sound and very friendly advice back! Highly recommend Dr Alice Duffy!

Jo
I felt really at ease talking to you, thank you, and able to share things that I never would normally talk about. That meant a lot to me and I’m excited to begin my new treatment and hopefully feel well again and have more energy.

Julie
Alice was amazing. I only wish I’d found her years ago.

Sarah
I feel really pleased and relieved to have found Dr Duffy and the clinic. It was great to be able to have an online consultation. I didn't feel that this was any less useful than face to face. Dr Duffy was so friendly and knowledgeable and I came away feeling confident and keen to go off and find out more. I couldn't wait for my prescription to arrive!

Teena
A very friendly and professional service throughout. Alice listened, responded to everything I told her and took a holistic perspective of my health and well being. She helped me feel at ease and the experience was really positive. Thank you so much.
