    After months of misdiagnosis by my GP and being told different things, Dr Saifee was able to tell me exactly what was wrong with me. I cannot recommend him enough! He was able to tell me a disk in my spine had moved and was pressing onto my spinal cord. Dr Saifee quickly arranged a scan for me and sent a letter to charing cross hospital on the same day telling them I needed an urgent operation. He is polite, listens and most importantly helped me after months of suffering.

    Excellent neurologist. Extremely friendly and listened to everything I had to say regarding my current issues. He examined me and we talked about what he thought was the probable cause. After an MRI it turns out he was spot on. Thank you Dr Saifee. I’d highly recommend him to anyone who thinks they may have some neurological problems, you’ll be in safe hands

    Explanation (5/5)
    Dr Saifee was absolutely amazing, caring and such a kind Dr when i went to see him for a consultation, i can never express enough thanks and gratitude i have for him i walked into his consultation room scared, frightened of what was going on in my body after falling ill a couple of months ago, he was so kind he listened to me & allowed me to talk through my symptoms and said he knew straight away what i was suffering and he did some tests and then confirmed his diagnosis and treated me while i was there, he explained what i was suffering from. he confirmed to me the medication that i was on was the correct medicines i was on which was so comforting to know because i was worried at not being able to see my GP on a face to face basis to reassure me. Dr Saifee has put me at ease and has given me the confidence to go out and live my life without the fears i was feeling. last night was the first night i was actually able to sleep without the fear of being frightened to go to sleep in case i did'nt wake up my son & daughter in law researched and found Dr Saifee on line and booked me to see him what an amazing find such an incredible competent man myself and my family are so grateful to him and giving me confidence & enabling me to get my life back to normal
