I had a Allergy test from your hair and have awarded it 3 stars.
I went for my blood test on 7/03/12. The original email from Nosh stated that I would be emailed my result in 7 to 10 days. I am still waiting for an email. the voucher said I would be given a 'beat the bloat box to take home which I did not receive. I have emailed Nosh on a couple of occasions re: my blood test result - no reply to date from them. I just keep getting emails about general things. Today I called them and was told by a man, who in my opinion was very abrupt and not at all apologetic that I had not received my result. He said that I would receive my result over the phone. I told him that the original email stated that I would be emailed the result and he said that is not the case. I would prefer to have my result on paper. He then said I would receive a call and if I was free on Monday. I said I work on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri. He said on Tuesday then - he clearly wasn't listening to what I was saying. He said I would get a call back to arrange a time. I am very disappointed with this as I wanted to start a diet which was going to based around avoiding foods that I am allergic to. I have now been set back by a month. If I had known there would be such a delay I would have gone somewhere else.
This was a fantastic experience; a winning combination of professionalism and friendliness. A friend a I booked the Wahanda MobDeal for the Health Assessment & Blood Profiling with 3 month private GP access, and booked in for our appointments on the same day. We were greeted and put at ease immediately, while filling out our info in the waiting area, which couldn't be much more different to the usual Doctors waiting rooms!
The test itself took about 30 mins and included a blood test, urine test, blood pressure, eye test, height and weight check and possibly more I've forgotten! We then had a quick follow up where it was explained that our results would be emailed out to us, and then we could book in for a phone or in person consultation with a GP. We were also told that we could take advantage of a special membership offer for Wahanda clients, so 2 people couild enjoy the private membership for the price of 1. There was no hesitation to sign up - the Galen experience is so far removed from Doctors and Walk In Surgeries, it makes taking your health seriously a much more pleasant task, as an appointment there doesn't feel like something you'd want to put off!
No hesitation to recommend the Wahanda offer or Galen Health.
The visit itself was extremely quick, just had to complete a few forms then have blood taken. The follow up call was also quick, although promised to be 20 minutes, I felt like the therapist was eager to get off the phone after only a few minutes. I wouldn't recommend this deal.
The area where I had the blood taken looked more like a kitchen than a clinic, so not looking the best but the staff was nice.
I had the blood test for food allergies - the experience was OK - no waiting time, and I got it done quite quickly, it was a simple blood test like any other.
After 2 days or so I got the results back showing I didn't have any allergies, which was great.
I've never spoken to the Nos Detox staff - EVER. They sent me an email with the results, saying I was fine and nothing more, apart from endless emails pushing their services and diets and products etc...
Very expensive for what I got out of it, e.g. nothing. Wouldn't recommend anyone doing it.
i got this for my eight year old who has had digestive problems for some time now, hoping we might find out what if anything she might be allergic to. I must say I was a bit disappointed with the result - her only allergy is to crab which she has never had :) however it was good to find out she doesn't have any other allergies. the therapist, who in fact is a nurse, was very friendly and seemed experienced at putting youngsters at ease; certainly my daughter was happy enough to have a blood sample taken, especially after a special cream to anesthetise the area was put on first (it had to be given an hour to work so we walked to nearby Hamleys for a window shop, then back again). The test didn't hurt at all, and though it felt a bit disappointing because I thought my daughter might have a gluten allergy and she apparently doesn't - I DID get a real kick out of seeing singer Sade in the waiting room as we were leaving - treat!
The testing was done in a lab on Harley Street (if my memory serves me right). I had very little to do with Nosh Detox staff as I dealt directly with the staff at the lab. The experience was efficient and easy and I got my results a few days later. The results were fairly self explanatory but I would have liked a follow up call from Nosh Detox to tell me what they might mean to my daily life and eating habits.
Gave a blood test for this test, was emailed the results fairly quickly. Some of the things they tested for were a bit strange like peach and celery. The tolerence test was supposed to come with a 20 minuite consultation but havent heard from the company of know how to get this.
