“Dr Nijjer is an incredibly empathetic doctor. He took my concerns seriously, ran the recommended tests immediately and followed up quickly with the results. He explained and reassured me concisely and clearly. I usually live in the USA so have experience of private healthcare - the care I received with Dr Nijjer beat anything I’ve received on the other side of the Atlantic. I’m very grateful to Dr Nijjer for the time he took to look after me, and would recommend him unreservedly.“

    About

    Dr. Nijjer (see his website, DrNijjer.com) is an award winning Cardiologist who has an international reputation in coronary heart disease.  Dr Nijjer is available in person and via video consultations - these are available daily, even in the evenings and weekends. He sees patients with chest pain or angina, breathlessness, palpitations, high blood pressure, and all cardiac problems.

    He works a Consultant Cardiologist at both the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Foundation NHS Trust. He is a Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London. He undertakes his private practice  at 68 Harley Street as part of the One Heart Clinic. He also see patients at BMI Syon Clinic, BMI Bishops Wood, the Cromwell Hospital and the Wellington Hospital.  He also see patients at the private facilities at the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital.

    Dr Nijjer performs coronary intervention (angiography and stenting) at the catheter suites of the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust.  He also performs procedures at the Cromwell Hospital and the Wellington Hospital including pacemakers.  He provides a full range of invasive procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease. He is part of the Primary Angioplasty on-call service at the Hammersmith Hospital which provides 24/7 care for patients suffering from a heart attack.

    Dr Nijjer is an internationally recognised expert in invasive coronary physiology, an advanced technique which can help guide Cardiologists on when and where a coronary stent is needed. He has performed ground-breaking research into invasive technologies that have changed the field and lead to better treatment of patients around the world.  He is regularly invited as a speaker and faculty at international conferences including the American College of Cardiology and TCT. Following his research, he provides medical education to other Doctors.

    Dr. Nijjer studied medicine at the University of Bristol, where he graduated with Honours in 2004 with two undergraduate scholarships and many academic prizes. He was also awarded a First Class Honours degree with prizes in Pharmacology which was supported by the prestigious Wolfson Award from the Royal College of Physicians.

    He undertook his Cardiology training at the Hammersmith Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital, St Mary's Hospital, Harefield Hospital and the Royal Brompton Hospital.  In his role as Consultant, Dr Nijjer has strived to deliver the best patient care while working across multiple hospital sites in west London. He works closely with General Practitioners, Kidney and Diabetes specialists to ensure the best outcomes for patients with complex needs.

    Dr. Nijjer is committed to the better treatment of patients through the development and application of new medical technologies.  His PhD, funded by the Medical Research Council and awarded by Imperial College, involved the development of new techniques (iFR and iFR-pullback) to measure blood flow in coronary arteries with blockages. Dr Nijjer pioneered the use of iFR-pullback to better use coronary stents in patients with many blockages and the iFR technology has now been used in thousands of patients around the world. A recent editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine referred to it as 'the new gold standard' and major international studies are ongoing and Dr Nijjer has worked on the design and running of these complex studies.

    Dr. Nijjer possesses clinical expertise in all aspects of cardiology, including treating patients with chest pain, angina, breathlessness on exertion, palpitations or collapse. He has expertise in assessing and treating patients at increased risk of heart disease such as patients with high blood pressure,  diabetes or raised cholesterol. He uses all of the latest stress testing techniques and if needed, invasive angiography, coronary stenting, and can implant pacemakers or cardiac monitoring devices when it is needed.

    Dr. Nijjer's holistic approach to treatment is one of understanding as he recognises and responds to the fact that an individual's medical issues exist alongside other aspects of their lives, treating any medical conditions in a way that fits the lifestyle of his patients. He utilises the latest guideline-supported cardiac test to ensure his patients are fully investigated in addition to his thorough clinical assessment.

    I have been to see Dr Nijjer several times now and have got to say that this is one Dr that is different from the others. Dr Nijjer spent time understanding the issues I was experiencing. He got to the root of the issue after having done tests. He made me feel very comfortable and most importantly explained everything in detail to ensure I understood what was going on with my health. I have been to see many Dr’s but honestly, Dr Nijjer is the Dr to see for any issues with the Heart. Dr Nijjer, thank you for all your help and support in dealing with my symptoms. You are doing an amazing job and appreciate the fact that we have you as a Dr.

    Dr Nijjer has been my cardiologist for about ten months. I turned to him after an unhappy experience with another cardiologist. I have found Dr Nijjer to be straightforward and open when explaining my condition or proposed treatment. He has twice performed angioplasty on me, inserting several cardiac stents. He was assiduous in ensuring that this was the optimum treatment and arranged consultations with other specialists. Subsequently he has paid close attention to my progress and provided lucid and productive advice. In my most recent meeting with him - the first since the advent of COVID-19, he was able to diagnose and recommend medication to overcome recent occurrences of nocturnal chest pain. In doing so I was impressed by the range of his medical knowledge and a certain willingness to think outside of the box. In sum I would strongly recommend Dr Nijjer to anyone seeking a cardiologist of exceptional skill.

    Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer

    I am glad to have been able to help you. Your case was complex and we discussed it in our multi-disciplinary team meeting and had assessments by our surgical team. Ultimately, we got an excellent result with the Angioplasty and we will monitor you going forward.

    It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Dr Nijjer over the last couple of months. When I first discovered I had an issue he immediately set my mind at ease and took the time to explain details of the condition to me and most importantly how he was going to deal with it. I have never felt that I am just another patient, he has an uncanny knack of projecting the feeling that you are the most important person on his list. Dr Nijjer made it clear that I can contact him at any time to discuss concerns that I may have and that he would take the time to talk me through and help me understand any changes that I may be going through. I will be under long term observation and will always hope that I will be dealing with him, I am very happy to put my health in the hands of such a professional and caring Doctor.

    I just wanted to write to thank you for saving my life. I had been waiting for coronary treatment since December 2019 when I had an angiogram by another consultant. This showed that two of my arteries were blocked, less than two years after I had triple bypass surgery. I was told I needed a MRI to help treatment but needless to say, this treatment was pushed back and back due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Now five months later my angina was causing considerable distress. I started having severe chest pains and my Doctor advised me to call an ambulance. Thank goodness I did. Once at West Middlesex Hospital, I was treated with respect and urgency. You assessed me quickly and recognised the problem straight away. "Would I be happy to have an angiogram?" "Yes please" I said, "but I was supposed to be having an MRI because no one was sure how to proceed with my treatment". You looked again at all the previous tests and angiogram and you decided that you could treat the two blocked arteries. You immediately added me to your busy schedule. You could have thought, "it's Friday evening, we have had a busy week, we can wait". But you and your wonderful colleagues pressed on, and inserted two stents. Dr Johal, my GP, tells me you saved my life. I feel so much better. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so grateful to you and you all.

    Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer

    Thank you for your kind message. I am glad to have helped you during your time of need. We were able to take decisive action and treat you promptly because in these situations, if we wait too long, it can cause major problems. Glad you are feeling better.

    I was diagnosed with bradycardia about two years ago, when I first started having cardiovascular issues. Dr. Nijjer also discovered the source of my angina and performed successful angioplasty with three stents to relieve the blockage. Turns out that I also had atherosclerosis. Fast forward two years later, the bradycardia worsened to complete heart block at certain times and the angina reoccurred, despite having engaged in a more healthy lifestyle and dropping over 2 stones in the process. Throughout the process, Dr. Nijjer gave me tests to perform and after reviewing the results, clearly laid out the options for me. They were clear, precise and very layman, so that a non medical professional can understand. The pacemaker was definitely the solution and an angiogram was ordered to see if the three stents are holding up well, or if other arteries are blocked. Having scheduled the two procedures, we undertook the pacemaker in a 3 hour ordeal, which Dr. Nijjer was able to put me at ease on an operating table in the theatre the whole time. We also performed the angiogram which showed that two stents were not holding up and that further action was needed in the future. Once I was able to come to mind after the pacemaker surgery, Dr. Nijjer once again explained to me the options that would be needed to be done, in order to relieve the angina. Medicated balloon stents were needed and I pressed him to do this while I was in the hospital, instead of returning again for another procedure, due to the COVID-19 situation. Luckily, Dr. Nijjer was able to secure a space for the following day and I was able to have the angioplasty done. I am still recovering from the two procedures, and thanks to Dr. Nijjer, my heart rates have not dropped to dangerously low levels as I don't feel as if I am slowly drifting away into the netherworld. The care, compassion and explanation provided by him throughout the process was outstanding and I do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Nijjer to anyone with cardiovascular issues. I am living testament that I will have at least another 25 years ahead of me. Thank you Dr. Nijjer, I would not be here, if it wasn;t for you.

    Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer

    Thank you for your kind words. It's been amazing how you have turned around your lifestyle with control of high blood pressure, cholesterol and a big weight loss. Your case demonstrates the importance of careful follow-up and monitoring with progressive changes in your heart's electrical conduction - slowly moving a from a benign change and then later, over time, becoming complete heart block. I am glad that we monitored over time and went for the Pacemaker when the timing was right.

    I have seen Dr Nijjer for over a year now and have found him to be very thorough in his examination. I selected him over other cardiologists due to his level of qualification. At my initial consultation with Dr Nijjer I found his calm disposition reassuring. He took the time to listen to me and answered all my queries about my condition. In addition to this he gave me general lifestyle advice which I could actively do to improve my symptoms. I’m very grateful for the care, attention and reassurance I have received in his care. I would have no problem in recommending him to anyone.

    Team is focused and on spot. I came to take blood test and assessment due high blood pressure, and my case was escalated on spot to have further tests like heart ultrasound and CT scan within minutes. Having a special clinic and trained team in single place allowed to get through full and thorough assessment in 6 hours. Which is impossible in "traditional" approach. I am really grateful to the team, to Sophie Stimson and Dr. Sukh Nijjer.

    Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer

    So glad to be able to help you in a fast way before lockdown!

    I came Dr Nijjer's clinic with my newly developed acute hypertension symptoms in a dreadful preparation to be in a routine of "test is taken, let's schedule a later appointment next week" a day before COVID lockdown. How wrong I was!!! Tests were taken at 9AM, results assessed on spot, additional tests added immediately, another assessment by the doctor, accompanied with a CT scan same day and I received full follow up by phone from Dr Nijjer later same night and a letter first thing next morning. Instead of horror of unknown about my health through the lockdown I had full assessment in a day, got a prescription that works, got an instrumental assurance that I will be fine for weeks and months that are needed to go through the lockdown and I will have my follow up when this lockdown will be in the past. Zero worries related to my tamed hypertension through the period!!! What a focus, professionalism, attention, decisiveness from Dr Sukhjinder and his clinic! Thank you so much, Dr Sukhjinder!

    I was referred to Dr Nijjer following intermittent chest pain and a rather extensive family history of heart problems. On our first meeting, he greeted me warmly and the meeting progressed with some pointed questions but more importantly, a genuine desire to help and listen to my issues. I felt immediately at ease and was also convinced early on that he was incredibly knowledgeable and very much up to date on new advancements in his field. Highly professional, great listener and wonderful patient interaction - I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Nijjer to others. Probably one of the best medical experiences I have had.

    Dr Nijjer has a very warm manner, he gave me information in an easy to understand way, including hand drawn pictures and he was happy to answer all questions. He recommended a series of tests and explained the results and in my case found me a brilliant surgeon, with excellent results. I am now fully recovered and back to full health. I can strongly recommend Dr Nijjer, I have full confidence in him and would personally recommend him to my friends and family should they need his assistance.
