£195 for first 45-minute consultation with a highly experienced GP

This does not include any additional services eg: bloods, prescriptions or referrals.

We have a menopause clinic at GMR every Tuesday.

This is run by Dr Fiona O’Donoghue who is a GP and menopause specialist with 25 years of experience.

An initial menopause consultation will last 45 minutes. We will ask you to fill in a medical history questionnaire online before your appointment and we will ask you to complete a symptom questionnaire on arrival.

This information will help us to provide you with an individualised treatment plan to address your own particular needs and will save time for more discussion at your visit.

We have a holistic approach to the management of menopause and perimenopause and we believe discussion regarding exercise and nutrition forms an integral part of any menopause treatment plan.

We aim to formulate a treatment plan which may involve HRT, topical oestrogens o testosterone replacement. or other medications and lifestyle issues. We can also fit mirena coils if necessary as part of HRT.

We plan a review appointment at 3 months and if all is well at this stage, your GP may be happy to continue prescribing. We will send you a summary of your visits for your NHS medical record. If your GP does not wish to prescribe then you can continue to attend GMR for menopause review.

You can find more information on the menopause on Dr O’Donoghue’s Instagram site @menopausemedicglasgow.

Also, we are happy to take calls ON 0141 225 0140 if you wish to find out more about the clinic or are contemplating making an appointment but are unsure if your symptoms are menopausal or unsure if an appointment would be beneficial.

I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.

“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”

We took our 2 year old son in to see Dr O’Neill for a meningitis B vaccination recently. Due to shortages of the vaccine, we had been on a waiting list with a well-known high street pharmacist for months without knowing when they would get stock in. We came across Glasgow Medical Rooms who had the vaccination and we managed to get our son booked in the next day. The clinic was very smart and easy to access in the city centre too. Dr O’Neill was great at dealing with our toddler. It was a relief to get the jabs sorted so quickly and would highly recommend the service to others.”

Mrs Crawford

“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”
