The appointment was at the new part of the london bridge hospital at the shard. prof reid was good but the hospital was an administrative shambles.

I am very disappointed that the London Bridge Clinic did not come up to scratch administratively. If you care to write to me with details of what you found difficult I will ensure the administration at the LB Clinic are aware of your feelings.

I travelled from overseas to visit professor reid on 21 november 2018, followed the same day with a dexa scan, the results of which were provided to me less than 24 hours later. professor reid is an extremely knowledgeable doctor and a very caring person. his knowledge of osteoporosis and all the relevant treatments surpassed my expectations. i now feel more at ease with how to cope with osteoporosis and i shall be returning to his clinic on monday to commence treatment. thank you professor.
