Rheumatology

About

During the Covid19 emergency I am principally involved with caring for inpatients at The Royal Free.  I can provide video consults for new and follow up patients but this will depend on NHS commitments.


Dr Animesh Singh is a Consultant in Rheumatology and General Medicine working privately at The Physicians' Clinic, The Princess Grace Hospital and Chiswick Medical Centre.  His NHS base is the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead.

He aims to offer holistic, evidence-based care to all his patients.  He takes pride in treating individual patients and not just their medical problems and runs his clinics in a collaborative fashion with his patients, maintaining great respect for their beliefs and background.

He is proficient in the management of patients with all types of rheumatological disorders with particular interest in rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR), osteoporosis, gout and lupus (SLE).  In addition, he is heavily involved with acute and general medicine including the assessment and management of acutely sick patients as well as the investigation of complex undifferentiated symptoms.  He participates in the medical on call rota at both the Royal Free and Princess Grace Hospitals. 

At the Royal Free, he is clinical governance lead in acute medicine and psoriatic arthritis lead, running a unique collaborative clinic with dermatology consultants.  He is an educational supervisor for junior doctors, clinical tutor for undergraduate medical students and principal investigator in a number of clinical trials.

Gout was not coming under control by my GP and I seemed to spend an awful lot of time hobbling around. Had tried colchicine , steroids , naproxen without success. I saw Dr Singh and was able to commence a specialist medication that finally gave relief after months of agony. This has dramatically changed the quality of my life and allowed me to return back to work.

Bedside Manner
My mother met Dr Singh as an in-patient in the Royal Free Hospital as an NHS patient. She had an illness that was extremely hard for the doctors to identify and perplexed a number of different medical teams but Dr Signh made a diagnosis. We call him our very own 'House MD' as per the Hollywood doctor that works on mysterious cases. Once she was out of hospital I was concerned about the speed of her recovery and I rang his NHS secretary asking for him to send some advice. I was shocked when he personally called me and gave me much of his time to explain her illness and medication that had not been provided as an in-patient. He was concerned for her welfare and I asked if we could see him privately to speed up the next consultation appointment. He then proceeded to contact us by text and was extremely efficient with times and booking the tests that she needed. We visited him at the very beautiful , clean and calm Physicians Clinic off Harley Street and he gave my mum a long session to assess her again and made adjustments to her medication. He said he would have her considerably better in 2 weeks and he has achieved that. He continues to contact us by text and email and he is available to ask any questions whenever we need. Without his specialist care, calm attention to detail and personal approach my mum would still be very poorly. He is an excellent physician and we are very grateful to him.

I found Dr Singh by chance. My physician in the US suggested I see a rheumatologist. Dr Singh came up via Doctify. He took a lot of time to explain my diagnosis (psoriatic arthritis). He went through how it can be treated medically and what I could do with lifestyle. He followed up quickly with test results and scans. Thank you!

Dr Singh was absolutely wonderful. He saw me really quickly and had a fantastic bedside manner. He injected my shoulder , almost painlessly! I was dreading it and I could not believe how well he did it. He explained the procedure well and made sure to check on me afterwards. Could not have asked for a better medical experience. Very highly recommended.

I had been admitted under Dr Singh’s care a few months ago when I was ill and went to the Princess grace hospital. Unfortunately I became ill again and I sent him a message. He called me back and arranged admission to the Princess Grace. I had very good care and he had the appropriate specialists come and see me. There were a few insurance issues afterwards and he helped clear up the problem. Dr Singh is very skilled as a doctor but also very kind and I have found he takes time to speak, explain and reassure as well as dealing with the medical side of my care.
