    Dr Asad has been excellent. He explained his diagnosis of my various symptoms in a way that (a) made sense and (b) was easily understood. His diagnosis was backed up a several tests which made me feel comfortable that he was covering all angles . He provided me with a good solution to try plus options in case those solutions did not work. He has been clear and communicative with my doctor regarding his diagnosis and prescription. He is very approachable and I trust him.

    Really appreciate detailed explanation of suggested tests, their results interpretation and the follow-up recommendations I've received from Dr. Hussain. I was kept informed on the blood and ultra-sound test results, and Dr. Hussain was available for the on-site consultations and now, during lockdown, also kindly provided relevant recommendations via Skype. Thanks a lot !

    Dr Syed Hussain is a superb clinician who I can rely to provide a sound opinion on a wide range of rheumatological and connective tissue disorders. He is also an excellent general physician and I have asked him to see patients where I have not determined an underlying endocrine cause for their symptoms. He is extremely efficient at sharing clinical information with patients, their GPs and specialists and his many reviews on Doctify are a testament to his kind, caring and sympathetic manner going the extra mile for his patients.
