Dr Amit Allahabadia is a Consultant Endocrinologist with clinics based in London and Sheffield.

Dr Allahabadia really took the time to listen to my situation and symptoms, taking a full history and responding to all of my questions and explaining my condition. He listened to my wishes and helped me to recover. He remained contactable throughout my treatment including between appointments. He was responsive to how I felt not just my clinical symptoms and I really felt he had my best interests at heart.

I was referred to Dr Allahbadia after my GP diagnosed me with hyper thyroid activity as well as antibodies attacking the thyroid. I have been seeing Dr Allahbadia since August to diagnose what’s causing this issue. Dr Allahbadia has done a through investigation and sent me to a bunch of tests which helped reach a diagnostic. While we were investigating the source of the problem, he gave me medications to relief the symptoms so I can manage day to day activities. Since I have a demanding corporate job, I found it easy to get availability with Dr Allahbadia who is Also seeing patients over the weekend. When I was traveling for work, Dr Allahbadia made sure to give me a call and provide an update on my condition without the need to visit the hospital to collect my results. Overall I am grateful for the support that Dr Allahbadia has given me while fighting a thyroid autoimmune condition.

I contacted Dr Allahabadia directly because my wife was suffering from a number of symptoms, potentially linked to hyperparathyroidism. We have found him to be very responsive, generous with his time, and willing to listen. He has also engaged thoughtfully and creatively to help us get to the bottom of what is wrong and get all of the relevant tests done in an affordable way. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, he is one of the few doctors that we have encountered who has considered the whole person rather than focusing purely on specific symptoms. We are still in the process of getting to the bottom of what is wrong, but we wouldn't have made the progress that we have made without the ongoing support of Dr Allahabadia.

Highly recommend. My wife was diagnosed with high thyroid hormones level. Dr Allahabadia explained everything very clearly, scheduled the appropriate tests and provided us a clear treatment plan. It was a very pleasant experience to work with him. I found our consultations with him very informative and helpful. He would always ask and make sure that we understood the process of my wife treatment. Going extra mile with his patients treatment he also provided us support out of consultation hours. Dr Allahabadia is a very knowledgeable and experienced specialist, giving outstanding service.

I have been seeing Dr Allahbadia for a few months now and I can’t praise him highly enough. He takes the time and care to listen and get a full understanding of what is going on. He is kind, sympathetic and explains things in a way that makes it easy to understand. I am so pleased I went to see him because I know I would have spent months feeling poorly if I had stayed under the care of my GP. He is very professional , highly regarded and goes the extra mile for his patients. Thank you Dr Allahbadia

Peer Recommendations

I have referred a number of patients to Dr Amit Allahabadia seeking specific advise on endocrine issues. The response has been highly professional, intelligent, and most importantly seeing the bigger picture. His verbal and written assessments of my patients have been informative and educational. His relaxed attitude, friendly demeanour and air of confidence, makes my colleague an excellent partner in the multidisciplinary care of my patients which is crucial within the private sector. I would most certainly recommend my colleague to others seeking not only advise, but clear strategies which are safe, academically sound and considered directions of care.
