I had an online consult so can’t speak to facilities, but Prof Reid was excellent: calm, thoughtful, kind and thorough. My case is not rheumatology but he’s given me some clear next steps. I would highly recommend him.

Reid is knowledgeable, friendly & competent. Out of 3 consultants, he was the only one to email me personally plus offer choice of video or personal followup.
