    Patient seen for:
    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.

    Explanation
    (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    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.
