“Dr Saifee was absolutely amazing, caring and such a kind Dr when i went to see him for a consultation, i can never express enough thanks and gratitude i have for him i walked into his consultation room scared, frightened of what was going on in my body after falling ill a couple of months ago, he was so kind he listened to me & allowed me to talk through my symptoms and said he knew straight away what i was suffering and he did some tests and then confirmed his diagnosis and treated me while i was there, he explained what i was suffering from. he confirmed to me the medication that i was on was the correct medicines i was on which was so comforting to know because i was worried at not being able to see my GP on a face to face basis to reassure me. Dr Saifee has put me at ease and has given me the confidence to go out and live my life without the fears i was feeling. last night was the first night i was actually able to sleep without the fear of being frightened to go to sleep in case i did'nt wake up my son & daughter in law researched and found Dr Saifee on line and booked me to see him what an amazing find such an incredible competent man myself and my family are so grateful to him and giving me confidence & enabling me to get my life back to normal “

    My consultation was absolutely perfect. Dr Saifee was a model of medical excellence. He was completely interested in listening to me, his following examination was gentle, his diagnosis was very positive, his explanation about my future was thorough and again gentle. He could not have done more for me. He invited me to question him rely condition and he answered me in full. I will now pass into the care of the NHS now I have the diagnosis but will not hesitate to consult Dr Saifee again if I need further expert information I will recommend Dr Saifee to family and friends if they have neurological problems I choose to put my name to this short report… B J L.
