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.

My father had an angiogram and shockwave procedure under the care of Dr Nijjer. Dr Nijjer has completely exceeded our expectations as a bright and knowledgeable healthcare professional. He gave and still gives us time, speaks clearly and always explains the technicalities behind the procedure and future possibilities to assure that everything is possible to ensure a great life ahead. Dr Nijjer has such a positive attitude that not only has he put my father at ease but the whole family. He always goes the extra mile to do whatever he can to help me in response to my concerns about my father – nothing is ever overlooked. He is extremely efficient, thorough, compassionate and a good natured doctor, we feel completely safe and secure in his capable hands. I cannot recommend him highly enough as a medical professional and my father is extremely fortunate and blessed to have him on his side. We would definitely recommend Dr Nijjer to anyone that goes through a similar experience.

From my first consultation with Dr Nijjer through to the Cardiac Operation he was candid , considerate and consummately professional. The treatment I needed was completely unexpected. I expected my checks to be routine. Due to Dr Nijjer’s management I was reassured that the outcome would be very positive rather than disturbed by the results of my checks. My family and I owe a great deal to Dr Nijjer and his team.

I was referred to Dr Nijjer following a routine health check up. His CV is exemplary and it was therefore no surprise that my condition was diagnosed and treated quickly, efficiently and professionally. However, what really sets Sukh apart is his level of patient care and support. Being diagnosed with any heart condition can be a somewhat overwhelming experience to begin with and his very personable and approachable manner made a huge difference from the outset. I would happily recommend him to anyone.

Before I saw Dr Nijjer for the first time, I was worried by the uncertainty of what might be wrong with my heart. He immediately set about organising the tests that were needed to ascertain my condition. That is symptomatic of his thoroughness. He has been very clear in explaining things including the alternatives and their respective risks. He tries to deal with things without resorting to invasive procedures unless necessary. My care from him has been excellent.

My mother had a consultation with Dr Nijjer recently at the BMI Syons Clinic, and I accompanied her. Dr Nijjer was incredibly attentive, professional and caring. Understood the exact symptoms and complications, and made excellent recommendations and gave my mother choices to help with her decision. He is to the point and pro-active, I can't recommend him high enough . We got an appointment with the clinic, and were so lucky that he was the available consultant on that day we needed to see someone.

My elderly father was referred to Dr. Nijjer to determine if his heart was strong enough for an urgently required and imminent hip operation. The hip operation was at risk of being postponed for a second if the anaesthetist did not receive confirmation that my father's heart was functioning normally, the results of previous electrocardiograms and a echocardiogram had been inconclusive. Dr. Nijjer provided clear explanation of the results of the electrocardiograms and echocardiogram that had already been performed as well as the reason why further investigation was required. He also showed empathy for his patient and helped to expedite the follow up investigation (MRI) in the hope that the operation would not have to be postponed. Dr. Nijjer explained the results of the MRI scan and provided clarification where requested responding to my query on the same day (which was not expected). Overall, Dr. Nijjer provided a high level of patient care and was extremely personable during his interactions with my father which gave me great reassurance. I would recommend him to others in need of the services of a cardiologist.

Thank you for your kind words. I am glad I could help! Wishing your father a speedy recovery.

After a scan showed plaque in my arteries i asked the consultant at west middlesex hospital for recommendations as to see who i could see privately for further investigations. I practice complimentary medicine and very much wanted to find someone who i trusted clinically and very importantly would take time to get to know me as an individual and give me guidance so that i could make informed decisions about my my health. Dr Nijjer was amazing. He has always made time to answer my many questions promptly by phone or email. His remarkable skill and kindness made an angiogram as painless as possible (both physically and emotionally).

In March I had a heart problem and I used the Services of Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer. He was recommended to me by BUPA advisor and I got angioplasty done by him and 3 stents were inserted. Dr. Nijjer was talking to me and reassured me and tried his best to keep me calm throughout the procedure. He was very patient and explained everything to my family members and reassured them. Even after the procedure he is still very helpful. It took me a while to get used to the medicines and he has always replied to my emails and helped me a lot. I have got high regards for him and would recommend him to anyone who needs a cardiologist.
