“Mr Gulati was recommended to me by my Physio after experiencing referred hip pain and stiffness that would not go away. Mr Gulati ordered an MRI of my hips and lower back. This resulted in the problem coming from my lower back, not my hip. I'm so thankful that Mr Gulati persisted to find the cause of my problem after finding nothing wrong with my hip. I'm very relieved because I now know the cause of my pain to plan the next steps. The whole experience from start to finish with Mr Gulati and his team was excellent. I would highly recommend Mr Gulati. “

    The best Doctor ever. I would give 100 stars, if I could! I’ve been seeing Dr Gulati for years. He is extremely caring and thoughtful and has always put me at complete ease. He always goes out of his way to make sure I am in the best care and all my questions are answered. He always makes himself available and reachable both by phone and email. I owe a big thanks to Dr Gulati for his dedication in addressing my health issues and working hard towards finding the correct diagnosis in order to give me the right treatment. I highly recommend!

    It was my second HIP REPLACEMENT I had complete confidence in Mr GULATI from day one he seemed to appreciate the pain I was experiencing.and immediately arranged my operation,his whole team were brilliant After the operation I had several visit from him during my stay in hospital..Very easy person to talk to to unlike consultants of many years ago who always made you feel inferior to them although probably not intended. I attended physio for several weeks another great experience.Then attended his clinic at 6 weeks 6 months and a telephone consultation at 1 year. I was so impressed I recommended him to my brother who he operated on him couple months later.Everyone from the cleaner to Mr Gulati ten out of ten

    Dear Dr Gulati, You must get these kinds of emails on the daily but I just personally wanted to briefly write to you to..thank you on behalf of myself, my family and friends for literally changing my life and my “face” forever. The past four weeks since my surgery, absolutely everyone has commented how much my whole demeanour has changed (I had no clue of it!) from looking “permanently with pained eyes“, to one of complete calmness, looking happy & relaxed, not to mention how my gait & walk has changed! As cliched it sounds, it’s truly a life changing operation (I watched the full video by the ⭕️ Circle Health Group) a few days after my discharge and despite it looking like something one would do during roadworks rather than a human body, I’m flummoxed as to how well my body has responded and is recovering! I can only attest that to your skills as my bedmate and others I’ve spoken to had severe pain for weeks after their surgery. It’s truly masterful, what you do and your ever-present, on hand abilities to answer even the most seemingly obvious questions, with calmness and patience, my partner and I knew that I’d be in the best hands Homerton had to offer, holding onto this hope carried me through this COVID-19 lockdown period knowing that you genuinely care about your patients. You are not just another NHS worker (who erstwhile deserve Much credit) but are brilliant at what you do! Were it not for your initial assurances upon my initial first appointment right on through to the surgery..I never for a minute thought that I wasn’t in safe hands. The last few years have been...tough, I resorted to desperate means to alleviate my pain (as you and Dr Hadi tried countless times, beyond your remit, to assist me with helpful solutions, even direct calls to the Dr & Owner of my previous practice) when my prior two GP practices failed to help. I’m proud to say that with my current GP I’m tapering down and expect to be free of strong painkillers for the rest of my life within two weeks. But for slight recent anemia, I’ve always been healthy and free of any/all diseases & I view this operation, which occurred just five days prior to my birthday as a kind of rebirth. New hip joint new me! Whilst my long distance & marathon running days are probably over for good, I’ll seek your advice perhaps in our follow up appointment in two weeks, as to how I intend to stay fit going forward. So until then, thank you 🙏, from the bottom of my heart.

    Hip Replacement
    I have just had a hip replacement following months of acute pain whilst my hip disintegrated. Mr Gulati has been completely superb, from his sense of urgency and understanding my problem to explaining each stage , reassuring me so I felt safe and supported through to the actual operation where he replaced my hip and dealt with my extremely tight muscles caused by walking on a much shorter leg for many, many months. The nurse dressing my wounds complimented me on my wound. If you are wondering whether or not to choose Mr Gulati stop dithering now, this is your man, absolutely excellent, and with the rare compassion and empathy we need to so badly when alone and frightened ( thank you Covid) in hospital. I am still recovering but am delighted to be under the care of Mr Gulati and his team
