Saw Mr. Heald for a 2nd opinion on a Parkinsons diagnosis. He was fabulous. Patient, understanding, thorough and very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions thoroughly and turned me from a nervous wreck into walking out of the consultation with much more confidence and hope. A much better outcome than I imagined and I am incredibly grateful to Mr. Heald. Quite possibly the best consultant I have ever had the pleasure to meet and we picked him after seeing the reviews on this site. Massively recommended.
Multiple sclerosis (ms)
Dr Heald talked to me as though I was worth talking to. He listened and he explained. He included my husband in the consultation. He seems to be a genuinely caring man who wants to make things better. It was a very good experience meeting him for the first time.
Could be improved:
Appointment waiting time.
What a fantastic Neurologist! I had a consultation with Dr Heald as a second opinion. What a difference in the assessment process and examination to what I had from a previous Neurologist. Dr Heald is very thorough and very personable. He takes time to listen to the patient in a person centred way!
Dr Heald treated me for Migraine with Aura. He is very knowledgeable, approachable and understanding. It was a relief to speak to a consultant who totally understood the debilitating effects of migraine and has such a positive attitude towards treatment. Nice chap too.
Dr. Heald treated me when he was a registrar at Newcastle General hospital.Very professional and explained everything thoroughly.Nice person as well.
At last a neurologist who really understands MS and talks to his patients as humans and not just part of something he "has" to do! He is amazing!
dr heald is very thorough, professional and patient. he also explains things extremely well. he inspires confidence & certainly knows his subject!
