“Mr Salim is a fantastic, compassionate and pragmatic consultant who puts you as the patient first. He listens incredibly well and straight away puts you at ease throughout the entire process. The support from he and his nursing team under Senior Nurse Nicky Mahoney has been nothing short of excellent support from end-to-end communication inside and outside hours to comprehensively answering any question we have. Nothing has been too much trouble and the team continues to go above and beyond in their approach and Mr Salim's, including reassuring us and checking in on us outside of appointments. Mr Salim focuses on a ‘nature first’ approach which has been successful for us. He was also able to prescribe and guide a protocol to avoid the risk of severe symptoms of over hyper-stimulation syndrome (OHSS), a key factor we had been worried about. Mr Salim is refreshingly honest and overwhelmingly positive but a realist at the same time. The delicate balance between the two means you feel like you’re always in safe hands and never feeling ‘oversold’ or that he is undertaking unnecessary measures or tests which we have seen at other clinics. He genuinely cares about his patients and the outcomes they desire. We feel grateful that we found Mr Salim at this point in our journey. We are mid-way through treatment but have nothing but praise for Mr Salim and the entire Lister Clinic at Portland Hospital team. “

    Mr Rehan Salim is a consultant gynaecologist and subspecialist in reproductive medicine at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. He graduated in medicine from St Andrew’s University & King’s College London, later completing subspecialty training in reproductive medicine at University College London Hospital. Following this, he was then appointed as consultant at UCLH where he led the Reproductive Medicine Unit, developing the NHS IVF service. Added to this, he also had a busy private practice in fertility and IVF at The Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health.

    Owing to his extensive medical expertise, he was recruited by Johns Hopkins International in 2012 to set up and run the IVF centre at Corniche Hospital in Abu Dhabi, the largest women’s hospital in United Arab Emirates, which he did until his return to the UK to take up his appointment at St Mary’s. He has wide experience in IVF and provides a highly individualised approach to patients, tailor making protocols to achieve the highest pregnancy rates. An area of particular interest is patients who have had previous failed fertility treatment or who are considered poor responders to IVF treatment.

    Not only this, Mr Salim also has a special interest and extensive experience in reproductive surgery and is able to perform most surgical procedures via minimal access techniques (laparoscopy or hysteroscopy) including myomectomies and excision of endometriosis.
