I need a quick turnaround on a neuropsychological assessment to get my license renewed for the boxing board of control. I was worried when I got a letter saying there was a problem with my brain scan. Charlotte rang me the same day I emailed and asked what the scan showed. She explained everything straight away and took my worry away by telling me all about my brain and what the brain scan meant. She saw me within a day and had the report done within a few days.
I was impressed at her boxing knowledge and understanding of boxers. She made me feel at ease talking about boxing history. She was really thorough and took my history and background into account when doing the tests. The thing I liked best is that it wasn't just a few hours in an office with a doctor I wouldn't see or hear from again. I could text or ring her if I needed anything after the assessment and also any time since, and she replies herself and is always really helpful. She gave me a one-off price for the assessment which included all the follow up and everything, so I was never charged for extras.
When it came round to having an assessment a year later she surprised me by telling me the cost was lower because she didn't need to ask me questions about my past again. She remembered everything about me and gave me a run down of all my results compared to last year as well as sending the letter to the board and helping me get my license renewed. She had kept track of my fights and career in between and asked me about these. The best doctor you can find.
I'm booking myself in to see her again to keep track of my brain in the future even if the boxing board don't need me to to make sure that if there are any early changes that I can make decisions about my career and health.
I'm an ice hocky player that had concussion symptoms that wouldn't go away. I worked with Charlotte to get an assessment and and understanding about what was happening to me. It really helped and I'm now on the mend.
My diagnosis was a massive shock. Dr Mawbey was so understanding and always focused on my goals. She was interested in me and my life and after a few sessions I learnt the strategies I needed to cope with my MS symptoms and find new meaning in the "new me". Thank you, thank you.
Dr Mawbey supported my mother with a dementia diagnosis. She provided a graph of her main areas of strength and weaknesses in memory and helped us to make long term plans for the future. She was empathetic and professional at all stages and went above and beyond to make sure that we understood everything and were all ok. We don't know what we would have done without her in our corner.
Dr Mawbey helped me to cope with managing stress after my daughter was born with a neurological illness. She has helped me find comfort in my role as a mum and a loving relationship with someone that I feel like I deserve after so many years of living in darkness.
We have been working with Charlotte for several years and she has been so supportive for my daughter who she does CBT with. She supervises out support worker team who work with my daughter and has assisted us by providing advice and liaison with statutory services. She is a breath of fresh air - direct and professional while still being so friendly and approachable. Thank you for all of your help.
My family were so stuck with my grandmother who had a heart condition, preivous strokes and a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment. Everything that we were seeing didn't add up and my grandmother deteriorated and couldn't be left alone because she was so unbalanced and her behaviour was very poor. Dr Mawbey advocated for my nan and shared with us that she was concerned that she might have a rare movement disorder which can cause dementia symptoms. She referred us to a specialist neurologist and after some investigations the diagnosis was confirmed. We were able to make my nan comfortable before she died and get her the support that she needed.
