“Following a health screen, my liver function tests were elevated and my GP referred me to Dr Dhar for a specialist review, repeat blood tests and an ultrasound. Dr Dhar was very thorough and spent time listening to my medical and family history. He provided practical advice and ways to improve my lifestyle which has resulted in my liver function markers normalising. He has given me a plan to reduce the unhealthy fat in my liver to help prevent more long lasting damage. I highly recommend Dr Dhar, he was very kind caring and reassuring. “

    I work very closely with Ameet, in the context of looking after patients with metabolic disorders, metabolic syndrome, hyperlipidaemias and diabetes. I rely on him to support my patients with liver disease, which can be very prevalent in those cohorts of people, in order to diagnose or avoid the development of liver cirrhosis. His interventions are extremely important to help prevent liver fibrosis and improve survival for our patients. I trust Ameet in his clinical acumen, in his approach to diagnostics and management of patients and also his compassionate nature, which allows him to care for people in a patient-centered manner that they appreciate and always feed back on. Looking after people with chronic conditions is challenging and having a multi-disciplinary team that offers robust plans of care with empathy and kindness makes a difference to our patient and to us, as the clinicians guiding and supporting them.

    Dr Dhar is an excellent physician and hepatologist who I work closely with. He is Head of Specialty for Hepatology at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and the Chair of the North West London Hepatology Clinical Reference Group. He also works at the Royal Free and is part of the pre-transplant assessment Multidisciplinary Team and does regular post transplant clinics. He is a respected hepatologist with special interest in cirrhosis and vascular liver disorders. I would have no reservation in highly recommending Dr Dhar to patients, friends and colleagues.
