I have been very ill for a long time, I went to dr Chammas with thyroid problems, after seeing her I felt intuitively hopeful, and I finally got a diagnosis, after 15 months of not knowing exactly what was wrong. Dr Chammas was very helpful, thorough, efficient and goes out of her way to help you. And everything you want in a doctor, and not arrogant like the ones in the nhs, that I’ve had experience with. And would recommend her to family and friends.

I can not review Dr Chammas highly enough. I came to her a few weeks ago with a potentially complicated and potentially serious issue and a very tight timeframe to diagnose before I had to depart the UK. Dr Chammas went above and beyond, truly, fighting to book me in for scans and tests... she went as far as speaking to CEOs of hospitals to try to book me in. Her and her secretary Ruth were incredibly kind and supportive.. and thorough... during a stressful time. The service was well beyond what I could have hoped for and the expert advice, without leaving any stone unturned, still continues. I am eternally greatful.

Dr Chammas always explains things fully to me, knowing that I am scientifically very capable so want to know exact details of drugs and their mechanisms and testing procedures. In this way she demonstrates a very individual-specific approach to her care of me. In explaining very complex endocrinology to me, it is a great help in understanding why my care regime and long term monitoring is the way it is. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Chammas.

Dr Chammas is an incredible doctor. She always takes her time with patients, and always goes to extra mile to ensure nothing is missed. Nothing is ever too much for her, and approaches patients very holistically. She has treated many of my family and friends, and they are all of the same opinion. Highly recommend.

Initially, I would wish to clarify that there have never been “close links” between Dr Nida Chammas and myself. Therefore, my review is based solely on facts and the impact that Dr Chammas’ expertise and level of care have had on my health and overall well-being. I have been trusting my health with Dr Nida Chammas for about 5 years, with regards to a few “abnormal” findings that seem to require periodic review and monitoring. If it had not been for her, the abnormalities would have never been successfully identified and properly assessed. Dr Chammas has been the only health expert who proceeded with the appropriate and most suitable tests -deemed as unnecessary by all other consultants- and accurately evaluated the findings by requesting further investigation. Even then, all other consultants characterised the findings completely “insignificant” with no need for further tests and monitoring. In addition, some of the reports never included the exact measurement of the findings, and Dr Chammas would be the only one who would robustly insist on having them accurately measured for a successful evaluation and potential ongoing monitoring. I have never met a consultant and health expert who is more disciplined, thorough, and with such a strong peripheral vision and attention to detail. More importantly, Dr Chammas’ approach has always been -and still is- proportionate to the nature, complexity, and overall risk profile of a case, therefore she never exaggerates on or undermines a situation, which has also been to the attention of Health Insurance companies because she is not the health expert who will request excessive and unnecessary test. Her overall approach is top-town, systematic, disciplined, risk-based, proactive and reactive, backward-looking but also with horizon-scanning. Dr Nida Chammas is not only a great consultant, but also an amazing individual. She is that kind of person who will make everyone around her feel immediately “at ease” and “confident” that the situation has not “gone out of hand”, and that everything that might be of concern is still manageable, as long as there is the right action plan in place that will be systematically followed up by both the patient and the consultant. Dr Chammas is also that kind of individual who will always be genuinely interested in a patient’s overall well-being and very often she will offer the required “reminders” about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, good exercise regime, good mental health, eating properly, keeping the “right” weight on as per individual needs, etc. As a Head of Compliance & Risk, I have a “keen” eye for attention to detail and for proportionate/suitable approach/attitude aligned to the complexity of various risks (inherent and residual). I have been amazed by how Dr Chammas has been dealing with a plethora of “risks”, daily, in such an accurate, proactive, responsive, consistent manner without leaving any space for risks to be characterised as unattended, and the latter is the most important achievement of all – to my opinion. Finally, at this point, I would wish to share that whilst I was in my home country, two years ago, discussing my overall medical profile with a few experts considered the “cream of the crop” internationally, and who are closely looking after the health and well-being of prominent politicians, businessmen of worldwide influence, etc., the feedback I received from them pertaining to Dr Chammas’ work and approach was simply amazing. Dr **** (expertise in HPB – Mayo Clinic), and Dr **** (surgical expertise in urology/nephrology – IRCAD/EITS) praised Dr Chammas’ knowledge, credentials, expertise, level of care, attention, and overall approach. They both stated that I am an extremely lucky patient to have Dr Nida Chammas as my consultant, and that I should “stick with” her at all costs. In addition, they mentioned that given the “complexity” of my case she had proceeded with the most suitable and appropriate investigative measures and monitoring that many would falsely deem as unnecessary. Dr Chammas, by observing all updated and required “protocols” in a proactive manner, she provides the right “ammunition” to her patients to deal with their health challenges more effectively and in a controlled manner. I would like to say a big, heart-felt *Thank You* to Dr Nida Chammas, for absolutely everything she has done for me over the past few years. I always feel that I can fully depend on her to find the right solution to a great number of health issues, and most importantly to continue remaining “calm” and “collected” no matter the challenge.
