    Not a good start, was kept waiting for twenty minutes with no explanation from receptionist who were too busy chatting to one another to notice. Consultation was fine and was promised a phone call the following day to discuss blood test results but this did not happen, which I find very unsatisfactory. £175 for a late appointment which lasted 20 minutes and then to not telephone me the following day isn’t a good experience.

    Dr.Eligar was immediately pleasant and welcoming. He explained my condition to me in great detail which was very interesting and appreciated - it helped me to understand the symptons and put my mind at rest about what has been happening. Tests were arranged and a follow up consultation. Things were explained very clearly in the follow up.

    Dr Eligar was welcoming and friendly so I felt relaxed immediately. He spent considerable time explaining my condition and the details around it, which I wanted to understand and know more about. As part of this explanation, Dr Eligar also made clear what we were going to do, what tests would be done, what these were for and what any further steps could potentially be. He provided background and more general information about the condition which I found fascinating as well as useful to know. I came away understanding my medical condition and previous test results which I've had through my local GP considerably better, I was really happy about this. I felt this was a very valuable appointment and working with Dr Eligar is going to be incredibly helpful, more than worth it.

His people skills respectively helped me to fully understand what was going on and to feel at ease in his hands. I have been very fortunate to have been under his care.

    From the very first consultation, Dr. Eligar was welcoming, thorough in review of blood test results, questioning on the history of symptoms, and consideration of further testing, e.g., ECG and bone density. His prompt response to emails is exemplary, as also the forwarding of prescriptions for NDT.
