I had 2 appointments with Dr Saggar. He has a really warm manner and a really clear way of explaining results using simple analogies. Clearly loves his subject matter as shared his thoughts on recently published articles. Left both sessions feel assured and fully understanding reasonings for additional tests and the subsequent results.

Dr Saggar is very much a ‘people person’ who has an excellent bedside manner when delivering difficult and sensitive information. I felt like we were dealing with someone who genuinely cared about us.

I came to see Mr Saggar in London yesterday with my daughter . He was extremely knowledgeable , very friendly and helpful . Open , honest and thorough . So glad we came to see him after feeling so let down with our NHS .
Dr Saggar was extremely polite & friendly from the minute we met him on 7.05.19.
He was very down to earth, open & honest with us too.
He has extensive knowledge & experience and gathered lots of information from us before suggesting what tests I may benefit from/where to go next.
I provided him with information prior to my appointment & it was clear he had reviewed this and where needed gathered more information about any rarer/not well known conditions I suffer from.
He agreed with what myself, my mother & another professional was thinking but was open as my health issues could be down to a genetic issue, something very rare or a combination of issues.
Dr Saggar made me feel at ease & positive for the first time in 3 years as he said he would do his best to help & support me to get better, even liaising with colleagues for their expertise due to the complexicity of my case.
My bloods will be due back in around 8-12 weeks when I will be seen by himself again with the results & to consider the way forward from there!
If anyone is considering to see Dr Saggar for help & advice from a Genetics perspective I would highly recommend him - I havent met a nicer, more friendly medical professional in the last 3 years
We finally found someone who actually listened! A thorough knowledge of EDS and related issues. Friendly, easy to talk to and really cares for his patients. Would thoroughly recommend him.
I went to see Dr Saggar regarding my son growth as I was worried he could have a genetic problem. He reassured me with a heart full of compassions and taking his time to check my son’s in deep details and answered all my questions. He stood as a geneticist and as a paediatrician. I don’t regret my choice. He is a good doctor.
I had a very good esperience about a genitic problem of my 14 years old doughter, after a year of illness where italian doctors couldn't help me.
Dr Saggar was very patient with us and explained all our options well enough that anyone could understand. He showed a real interest in finding the best solution for us. He is very friendly and will be someone we will approach in the future without a doubt.
Great doctor , so friendly , knowledgable and above all he explained in detail in a way we could understand the complexities of the genetic condition that our son has. He always put us at ease and it’s a pleasure to have had him as our geneticist.
Dr Anand Sagger was so helpful at my appointment today. What could have been really hard to understand was made easy and very comprehensive. I would recommend Dr Saggar to anyone who needs some great knowledge in his area.
Happy with the service provided.
Dr Saggar was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. After several years of worrying and wondering, and many appointments with various doctors and other healthcare professionals, we finally have a diagnosis for my son. Dr Saggar was very approachable and explained everything clearly, and referred me to places where I could find out more information about this rare disorder. He also referred us immediately to services to help my son in the future and made practical suggestions as to how we can help him at home and at school. He was very kind to my son and had a very nice manner - my son is practising the funny handshakes ready for the next appointment! Overall I would recommend Dr Saggar very highly.
We saw Dr Saggar about a family problem. He was most sympathetic and understanding. He took a lot of trouble to explain things to us and to help us formulate a plan. His advice was both constructive and pragmatic. We came away feeling we had seen a wise, knowledgeable and very kind man.
I found this doctor extremely helpful and patient in explaining my family genetics to me. He was very easy to talk to and put you at your ease. It was a pleasure to meet him.
A Very nice welcome at the clinic.Doctor Saggar has been very friendly, clear, and he took a lot of his time to explain and making sure we Understanding.A positive consultation.Very suggested.
We had our appointment with Dr Saggar and we wanted to say how fantatsic he was. He explained chromosomes and our issues in simple plain English )and it all made sense) unlike the confusion on the internet and reading around! He certainly knows his stuff but he is also a warm and lovely person. Couldn't have asked for a better consultant to see. Thanks
Dr Saggar was very helpful for me when I saw him for advice on genetic test results. He explained things clearly and answered my questions fully and well, and was very reassuring. He was missing a test result from a lab and directly phoned them to get it there and then. Waiting time was good. As I saw him privately he was expensive to see, but worth the price for my situation.
Dr Saggar made my children feel at ease from the moment he met them and explained the complex medical terms in a way that we all understood. He was professional, Personable and justifiably regarded as one of the best in his field. When my husband and I subsequently saw him without our children, he was again impressive, showing sensitivity towards our concerns and providing us with plenty of easily accessible information. We did not feel rushed to end the appointment and he explained points in depth (and layman terms). Dr Saggar recommended colleagues that could help us further and even wrote to them with our notes and letters of referral.
We have seen our fair share of consultants and specialists over the years, and Dr Saggar was fantastic. The children still repeat a joke and silly handshake he taught them, and even though they only saw him once he made a good and lasting impression. Highly recommended.
Dr Saggar is an amazing Doctor who is knowledgeable, talented, compassionate, easy to talk to and incredibly supportive. He has a dedicated energy that shows his passion for his work. He gave me the answers to my son's medical challenges that multiple Doctors had failed to do in the past. He treats each case individually by listening carefully and he takes the time to explain thing really well. The Medical field has a wonderful asset in Dr Saggar. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr Saggar to anyone who needs a talented and dedicated Doctor.
We really enjoyed going to Dr Saggar, He's kind, thorough and very knowledgable. A lovely Doctor we would recommend!!
I had my appointment with Dr Saggar this morning and I just wanted to say how absolutely brilliant he was. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. His explanation of chromosomes and my balanced translocation was exceptional and far clearer than anything I have read (and I have read a lot)!
Not only was his knowledge and expertise outstanding he was also a thoroughly warm and lovely person and I feel so lucky to have been referred to him.
I had a very informative and reassuring consultation with Dr. Saggar today. Not only was he able to answer my questions and concerns regarding my genetic conditions, I also came away with a plan of action to address my other health concerns. Dr. Saggar is a very knowledgeable and pragmatic doctor. I was impressed by the breadth of his medical understanding, and his ability to pick up on the relationship between my genetic condition and the other symptoms I have been having which other doctors (3 different consultants) had missed. He looks at the person as a whole rather than focusing too individually on certain areas and issues - this is very important if you have a chronic condition. I highly recommend Dr. Saggar.
After the sad loss of my brother due to an unforeseen heart problem I have had numerous checks and tests which revealed I to had an issue , although not the same thing. I have met some helpful people during this process but also had to push for information and follow ups. Having met Dr Saggar I was impressed with his manner and knowledge and was left in no doubt that I was being well looked after and by someone who cared.
Our 16 month old daughter was referred to Dr Saggar for a genetic assessment. Dr Saggar undertook a thorough examination of our daughter, explaining at each stage what he was looking to evaluate and why. Dr Saggar then explained his hypothesis for the cause of the symptoms our daughter was exhibiting and set out a clear set of logical follow up tests. The test results were complex but Dr Saggar led us through them using clear language, ensuring we understood each point before moving to the next one. My wife and I were emotional on hearing the results. Dr Saggar judged his response perfectly providing comforting, sympathetic, and positive words of support. He concluded with giving us a clear set of follow up steps which we are now acting upon. I would recommend Dr Saggar to other parents who require a genetic evaluation of the children - he provided a first class, professional and thorough service.
Took my son to see Dr Saggar who I found to be extremely friendly & welcoming. He was also very thorough in his examination and explaination of possible outcomes of my sons test. Would definitely recommend Dr Saggar
What a wonderful doctor! Dr. Saggar is clearly very knowledgeable about genetics; he explained what CDAN1 was very clearly, when no other doctor had even heard of this before. Dr. Saggar was also very empathetic when I asked questions and raised my concerns. He helped put me at ease and went out of his way to find the least expensive way to get tested. I would highly recommend Dr. Saggar to anyone who is looking for a highly knowledgeable, compassionate doctor who genuinely cares about his patients!
Dr. Saggar was very thorough and patient in terms of gathering our history and answering any questions we had. He was very knowledgeable and seemed efficient in terms of recommending a genetic testing course of action for my husband and I. Very pleased.
We have seen Dr.Saggar twice now with our teenage daughter as she has some ongoing issues. Although we have only seen him twice we have had an ongoing email dialogue with his assistant Lisa and we have been impressed with the speed of his replies and the quality of Dr. Saggar's correspondence. In particular he wrote to our insurance company who didn't want to approve the genetic testing costs of £1500, his letter was extremely good, citing recent academic papers to support the reason for his request. It was extremely well put together and very convincing and as such our insurance company approved the costs.
All that aside, it isn't often that I come across many in the medical profession who are so willing to share their knowledge. Out of concern for our daughter I have undertaken research around her conditions and as such pestered Dr. Saggar with many questions. He was very generous spirited, he has a great manner and was brilliant with our teenage daughter who really liked him.
A very professional and helpful person.
I was so impressed with Dr Saggar, his knowledge is vast, his manner immediately put me at ease. He is well respected in his field of expertise, however, he doesn't baffle you with endless medical jargon and he was able to answer any question I had. He put a clear plan in place for me allowing me to feel confident that he was going to help me. He is fantastic! S.Hannett
Very helpful, informative and friendly approach to our case.
I started my appointment with Dr Saggar right on time (a very rare occurrence for most doctors!). He was very personable, and explained everything I needed to know about the genetic testing I wanted. I will definitely return to him should I need anything more in this field.
We are deeply grateful to Dr Saggar for his kindness and support. We visited Dr Saggar to seek advice on a possible problem with our daughter. He is clearly very experienced and knowledgeable and he explained everything without rushing. He is gentle, reassuring but honest and treated us with compassion and professionalism. Highly recommended.
We visited Dr. Saggar from Cyprus for my little girl. He was kind and patient with us and while examining my daughter he kept talking to her in a soothing voice keeping her from crying. He was more than willing to answer all our questions no matter how silly they were.
He suggested some additional tests that we could do to help find out what my daughter might have - and even though we have returned home we will still keep in touch with Dr. Saggar and visit him again if need be.
100% worth the visit
We visited Dr. Saggar with my daughter. He had very good communication with her, although my daughter does not speak English at all. He explained all details of symtoms and possible diagnoses in a language easy to understand for us. We are waiting for some test results before our next visit. Thanks to his expertese and supportive approach during our first visit, we feel confident while waiting for 6 weeks for the results.
We found Dr Saggar extremely knowledgeable about marfans syndrome and he was able to diagnose my daughter with a related syndrome Ehlers Danlos. It's a relief to know what her medical condition is.
We were very pleased we chose to see Dr Saggar. Clear, thorough advice given in a way that made it easy to understand. He gave us the information we needed in order to make important decisions for our future. He went above and beyond, initially providing one clinic letter summarising our appointment, then a second letter following further discussion about our case with specialist colleagues. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this doctor.
Couldn't have asked for a more professional and considerate doctor. Took time to explain options and didn't feel like I was just another patient! Highly recommended.
what a lovely doctor he is ! .Explains things well and has a lovely friendly down-to-earth manner with adults and my teenage daughter.we got so many answers medically and he was very approachable with any questions we had. Thanks for all your help you are a top doc !!!
I was very nervous about my first appointment with Dr Saggar, but his kind and friendly manner soon put me at ease. Dr Saggar is obviously passionate about the subject of genetics and his enthusiasm and extensive knowledge inspired confidence and trust, at what was a very anxious time for me. Dr Saggar is a respected expert in his field, and he is very patient and takes time to explain the complexities of genetics in such a way that makes understanding accessible to the rest of us! I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Saggar- a much deserved five stars!
Dr. Saggar provides clear and concise information and doesn't treat his patients as case note numbers. He makes you feel very at ease and never rushes you through your concerns or appointments. A highly competent and thorough consultant.
I found Dr. Saggar to be very friendly and considerate - he seemed genuinely concerned by the problems we were having at the time. His clinical and (especially) genetic knowledge seemed outstanding, and he suggested several testing options - taking time to explain each in great detail. He also knew the very best specialists to go to when we needed very particular advice (ie. obstetrics). Highly recommended.
Dr Saggar is a very kind and patient consultant. His manner is reassuring and he has a clear and calm way of explaining conditions and their implications. He was very helpful to me in securing funding for necessary testing from my insurer and both he and his secretary exceeded my expectations in their helpfulness and support. A very positive experience and I am confident in the diagnosis I received.
A fab doctor, always a kind word, gentle and re-assuring. Never over sells, always gives the right advice rather than the most costly!
I would rate Dr Saggar, and recommend him anyone!
Dr Saggar is very knowledgeable, clearly very intelligent; his friendly manner makes consulting with him a pleasure
