    I called Dr Animesh Singh as a self paying patient as I was really struggling to get a diagnosis for my symptoms. Via video consultation link I found him to be very thorough with his questioning. I’ve never experienced the care of a doctor with so much patience and such an excellent bedside manner. I felt listened to and treated with respect. I appreciated him wanting my input to what I was wanting from the consultation too. His communication from the beginning was excellent and the after-care too. He had a letter written up to send to my GP and kept me informed throughout the process. I would recommend him without a doubt.

    Many thanks for your kind words. Both patients and clinicians have to be adaptable in the current climate & a face to face consult is not always possible. Always happy to help via phone or video if that is more convenient.

    I have felt very reassured in my consultations with Dr. Singh. I felt he treated my problem and its effects seriously and took all steps to verify his diagnosis, consulting with other specialists as appropriate and explaining to me clearly at each stage what the tests showed. He also reassured me as to the treatment plan and monitoring that would be appropriate. He noted that my hearing was deficient and took time to ensure that I understood what he was saying in my consultations. I am very pleased that my condition has improved radically and also that he has provided explanatory letters for me and my GP and the other consultants involved in my case.

    Cannot recommend Dr Singh more highly. He explained everything clearly, explained why he was prescribing specific medication and gave me more detail about my condition than I’d got out of numerous conversations with my GP. He was also able to see me the following day, which was very helpful.

    Dr Singh asked me a lot of questions and made an actual diagnosis on our first appointment. I was relieved to know what was wrong with me and Dr Singh gave me great advice. He provided me with information on my condition, which I knew nothing about, and prescribed me with accurate medication following several tests to confirm his initial diagnosis. Furthermore, he recommended an eye doctor for me to see, who was extremely pleasant. I highly recommend Dr Singh.

    Very knowledagble and correct in his telephone Consultation. Explained everything extremley well. I can see why he was recomended by a recent patient as the best Consultant to see according to my symptoms. Tests suggested and undergone proved his diagnosis immediatley. Good discussion around choice of medication worked well and I can get on with my life without constant pain. I am so glad I saw him.
