    My experience has been a very positive one. I have been seeing Dr Shah on two counts. Firstly I was referred to her as a consultant rheumatologist for medical issues relating to severe leg pain. Dr Shah is incredibly professional, thorough, empathetic and i have enormous respect for her. She is very informative and having seen numerous doctors of different specialties about my legs before I saw Dr Shah, she was the first doctor to get to the bottom of the medical condition I was seeking help with! I have also seen Dr Shah with regards to my weight issues and she has been once again very kind, concerned and incredibly helpful. The help she has given me has worked beyond expectations and I can not recommend Dr Shah highly enough in both cases! Dr Shah also offers facial aesthetics and if I decide to go down that route, I would without hesitation go to Dr Shah for this too.

    I came to see see Dr Shah last week for treatment for hair thinning due to my chemotherapy which consisted of Microneedling and PRP which I would highly recommend . Dr Shah totally put me at my ease and the experience was pain free due to a pain blocker that was used. Dr Shah made the whole experience very comfortable for me and explained everything to me which made me much more relaxed also. It was so much better than I’d anticipated and would highly recommend it if you’re experiencing any hair loss.

    A truly fantastic experience. Dr Shah was able to diagnose my condition almost immediately and took all the necessary steps to ensure that I was treated in each and every way on the day. I feel that I’m very well placed to handle my Ankylosing Spondylitis and it’s with massive thank to Dr Shah. Fantastic experience!

    Dr. Preeti Shah made me feel comfortable from the moment she greeted me. She was thorough, clear and explained her diagnosis of Polymyalgia Rheumatica in terms which were easy to understand. She also identified another condition which would alter the treatment/medication regime for PMR. I arrived at the appointment in an anxious state but left reassured and confident in my future treatment path. Thank you.

    Whenever i have visited Dr Preeti Shah for the treatment of my arthritis i have found her to be extremely professional and caring and listening to how i feel. She also helped me with the sweats i was having on my forehead, i had tried everything previously to combat this problem until Dr Shah mentioned botulinum toxin injections, since then i have had no more sweats on my head. Thank you Dr Shah

    I am 80 years old with a recent diagnosis of Polymyalgia Rheumatica. I was referred to Dr Shah and it was honestly the most enjoyable clinic appointment I have ever had. I also have a clear treatment plan going forward.

    Best doctor we have seen ! If only all doctors were like her . She was informed , knowledgeable , approachable , she listened and she acted decisively . There was no passing on to another specialist or staff member . She owned the case and dealt with it there and then . She scanned my daughter and gave her the appropriate treatment . I have been taking my daughter to hospital appointments for over 18 years and that was the most successful , effective and stress free appointment I’ve ever attended . I cannot say a big enough thank you
