Dr Shabbir Moochhala is a Consultant Nephrologist and Physician at NHS and private hospitals in North London. He has nine years' experience in all aspects of kidney disease, including acute kidney injury, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, transplantation and all forms of dialysis.
As well as being a specialist, he is also a practising general physician. This means that he has an excellent knowledge of common as well as rare diseases, so he often is consulted by patients whose problems span more than one specialty. He always tries to address all of his patients' medical needs, not just the kidney related ones.
Dr Moochhala trained in Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne. He is also an expert in rare renal diseases, specifically rare kidney stone diseases, and is Principal Investigator for four international research trials. He teaches medical students and junior doctors, and gives lectures nationally on his specialist topics.
In addition to offering a comprehensive medical service to his patients, with a friendly approach, he is readily available and often able to give appointments at short notice, with rapid communication to both patients and referrers.
