    I recently took my son to see Dr Saggar for a physical examination and genetic test. Dr Saggar had a wonderful manner and put both me and my son at ease. He was careful to explain to my son why the genetic testing was necessary and what the process involved, without scaring him. Recognising an anxious mother, he was very kind and took the time to answer my questions and to reassure me. I definitely left feeling like my son was in very good hands and that he would support us through what is a stressful process.

    My experience with Dr Saggar was overall excellent. I’m so happy we choose to go to him to find out my son has a genetic disorder. My sons disorder is extremely rare and Dr Saggar explained it to us very well and went above and beyond to help us with information. I am so grateful.

His subject knowledge is outstanding along with his guidance and advice. His warm personality has made this experience personalised. His personal assistant is always at hand to answer any queries and will always go that extra length to help in which ever way she can: she’s in understanding and compassionate. Superb team!

    Investigation into possible genetic disorder for our 2 year old son
    We had several consultations with Dr Saggar in relation to our toddler and had a very good experience overall. Dr Saggar was always very good natured and was able to explain complex investigations clearly and answer all our questions. His expertise and experience was extremely benefiicial when it came to providing a diagnosis for our child. We also appreciated the fact that he was frank yet empathetic in his approach.

    Dr Saggar was very thorough with during my sons appointment and if you are looking for a specialist then i would recommend him highly. The appointment was on time and we felt very clean and safe (during Covid 19). He was also great with my son (20months) and tried to make the appoinment as fun as can be for him. Any concerns i have in the future i will just go back to him as he was a lot more professional and in depth than the previous NHS responses we received.

    Since meeting dr. Saggar on our first consultation regarding my baby's disease, I was impressed by the politeness and care he and his assistant Pallavi showed towards us. Throughout our follow-up consultations, the knowledge, scientific advice and information provided by dr Saggar helped us enormously as first-time parents of a child with a rare genetic condition. Dr Saggar's determination and perseverance in finding a diagnosis has given us hope, resilience and power to discover the best outcomes for our lives. Due to his vast experience in his field of work, we have received now a diagnosis, which empowers us to seek treatment and improve the quality of life going forward. We are forever grateful for the help and support provided by Dr Saggar. Thank you!

    Dr Saggar was extremely helpful, listened to my issues and solved them recommending efficient courses of action. I am very impressed that it took one consultation to fix a range of issues when multiple specialists were not able to provide a long term solution. One of the best doctors I have met in my life.

    Dr Saggar has been absolutely amazing. He explains a very complicated subject clearly so we had the best understanding to make informed decisions. He was very positive and supportive. Our subject was quite a sensitive area emotionally and he was empathetic to that in the way he chatted to us. Amazing Doctor, would recommend highly.

    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 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

    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.

    Dr Anand Saggar is an accomplished clinical geneticist who provides a comprehensive clinical assessment for all his patients. He is exceedingly well thought of by peers and patients alike and is well regarded for his broad experience in clinical medicine. We have co-cared for a number of patients with joint hypermobility and postural tachycardia syndrome and they all speak very highly of him.
