Could be improved: I can't get mobile coverage in the waiting area!
He is very thorough, patient and and an expert in his field. I had to go to hospital where he was very attentive and has a wonderful team he works with. He conducted many tests which gave a full picture of my situation and explained everything so well. Angelis efficient, kind-hearted person.

Treatment 06/12 to now.Very thorough in diagnosis and treatment. Listens to concerns and explains every aspect of the treatment including analysis of blood results as a result of treatment. Highly recommended to any of my friends. Receptionist - Angela is always very friendly and helpful.
I felt very safe in his care. I believe he always listened and always explained very carefully the treatment to be carried out and the reasons why. He is very professional and extremely thorough.
Could be improved: Very little.
He listens very carefully and takes the time to explain complex medical situations so that I will understand the medical issues I have. I feel very safe and well cared for with him as my Endocrinologist.
Dr Hockings is one of those rare, old school professionals who really takes the time to listen to what you have to say. He works WITH you not against you. You have his complete attention and he doesn't sit on the 'same page of the medical journal' as most specialists do. He is a brilliant man..
He listens to the patient and doesn't assume the answer.
Brilliant! He changed my life. No other doctor believed that my thyroid was the problem but after six months with Dr Hocking I'm like a new woman. He listened to me... not just looked at my blood tests.
A very astute professional who has an enquireing mind, does not just run with the mob mentality, thinks things through and unearths underlying cause.
Totally awesome bloke! Has truly helped me with my Thyroid but also trying to minimise the effects on my other health problems.
I do appreciate that the Receiptionist sends me a reminder every 6mths, she is friendly and approachable.

Dr Hockings is fantastic, I couldn`t have had my baby without his help. He is always very kind and explains everything carefully to ensure I understand. His receptionist is lovely and very friendly.
He is great but we found his receptionist to be rude and overbearing.
