I saw Dr Singh after suffering from really severe joint pains. He assessed me, explained the likely diagnosis and commenced treatment. I felt so much better within a few days. He kept me uptodate with blood and scan results and saw me back soon after to start some additional medication.

Dr Singh saw be within a couple of hours of being referred by a GP. He was very kind and explained the problem and how we were going to manage it. I never felt rushed and he answered all my questions and sent a letter to my GP and myself the same evening. I had one follow up question which I emailed him and he responded straight away.

Dr Singh treated me for a multi-drug resistant kidney infection at the Princess Grace Hospital. Throughout my stay in hospital he was a reassuring, kind and calm presence. He was always ready to listen to how I felt, rather than just relying solely on the test results, and I felt that the treatment plan was made in partnership with me, rather than being imposed. He was prepared to say if he didn't know an answer and willing to consult with other doctors to ensure my best care.

Doctor Singh took care of me after I had a severe pneumonia in June 2018. Not only he was super professional but also very nice and made ne very comfortable by his professionalism. I would strongly recommend him and the Physicians Clinic where staff is kind and on time.

I saw Dr Singh following a number of trips to the hospital over the course of a week with chest pains that had resulted in no diagnosis. I was referred to Dr Singh and following a day of thorough testing I received a diagnosis the very next day and begun treatment that same day. Dr Singh has a wonderful bedside manner and kept in touch through the whole process even going the extra mile to follow up with me to make sure that the treatment was working and how I was feeling outside of arranged appointments. I highly recommend him!

Dr Singh saw me less than 24 hours after contacting him for an appointment. He quickly identified what the problem was and discussed treatment options. He arranged blood test and scans at my convenience and communicated with me via email in between clinic appointments. I have complete faith in him. A truly excellent rheumatology consultant.

Having been in excruciating pain for a number of weeks and visited multiple doctors to seek help, it became apparent that I needed to see a rheumatologist. I found Dr Singh on Doctify on a bank holiday weekend and requested an appointment with him immediately. Despite it being the bank holiday, Dr Singh kindly emailed me to say that he hoped to see me the next day. His secretary confirmed the appointment the next morning and I went to visit him at the Physicians Clinic on Devonshire Street. Dr Singh was extremely professional and thorough - he took the time to run through my history and left no stone unturned - requesting multiple blood tests, x rays and an ECG. As Dr Singh works out of the Physicians Clinic, all tests were carried out immediately at the Physicians clinic. Delighted with the service I have received. Thank you Dr Singh.

Dr Singh was very kind, helpful and professional. He secured me an appointment at the very last minute and that has made such a difference to me. He provided me with all the information I needed to make an informed choice about my health options and went far above and beyond to secure me quality treatment. I cannot thank him enough for his help.

Bonjour, Merci beaucoup au docteur Animesh Singh qui a su a la fois traiter ma crise aiguë d’arthrite rhumatoïde et diagnostiquer d'autres complications. Il a fait preuve de psychologie, de douceur et a aussi prescrit un traitement efficace pour me soulager. Je n’hésiterais pas a retourner le voir si nécessaire. Thank you very much to Doctor Animesh Singh. He was able to relieve my joint pain and also to diagnose a mixed connective tissue disease. He was very kind and patient to explain my disease and prescribed efficient medicine. I will not hesitate to see him again if required. A.B.

I saw Dr Singh after referral from my GP for psoriatic arthritis. I had seen a Rheumatologist in the past but they were rather didactic in terms of medication. Dr Singh by contrast was very patient-centred. Obviously he re-took my history , arranged appropriate tests and then we had a discussion about the pros and cons of different treatment options. I see him on a regular basis and he is an excellent consultant and I rate him highly - both in terms of medical knowledge and skill as well as his approach to patients.
