    In a word: outstanding. Dr Gulati was extremely impressive: active listener, weighed up symptoms and history against examination. Arrived at hypothesis that she then set about substantiating or disproving with diagnostic testing. These are the hallmarks of a first-rate medical practitioner. I am grateful to have seen her.

    Gout
    Dr Gulati was recommended to me by a mutual acquaintance. I was suffering from an acute attack of gout at the time. An appointment was made at extremely short notice where upon she established the full history of the condition and reviewed any medical advice previously given where the current symptoms warrented it. Dr Gulati then put together a comprehensive 9 month gameplan, tweeking the previous advice where necessary especially where it was felt I would benefit from additional medical help. Dr Gulati demonstrated a very confident stance with a comprehensive knowledge of the illness, its symptoms and potential remedies. I felt in good hands throughout the whole process.

    Dr Pooja Gulati was very pleasant , receptive, courteous and respectful. I was seen on time . She listened attentively to the answers of my current situation from her questions. She did not rush me and I was able to give her a full account of my ailments. She explained exactly what investigations ,she proposed to request and why She was thorough and all in one go not in a trial and error method. She was aware that I was awaiting to have surgery on my hip and needed firm diagnosis. She started replacement therapy immediately from the blood results I provided her on the day of consultation . She explained the results of ALL the investigations in one virtual consultation, which was my choice as offered. It was all very Professional, Warm, Efficient and pleasant experience.
