Dr. Singh was highly competent and professional in my dealings with him; I came in for a very serious condition and he treated me with respect and calmly explained the condition, the risks, and associated treatment plan including navigating some potentially tricky logistical issues as we were staying in London on holiday (which exacerbated the stress of the situation). I would highly recommend Dr. Singh and I credit him and my staff of other doctors, nurses and technicians with diagnosing a life-threatening condition, enacting an effective treatment plan, and getting me on my way to recovery.

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.

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.

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.

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.
