Here are some of the excellent reviews Dr Soumit Singhai has received from recent patients.

 

Doctor Singhai has given my husband his life and personality back. Before we came to see Dr Singhai, my husband was in a really bad place and we were sitting with a diagnosis that turned out to be incorrect. On our first meeting with Dr Singhai, he had a strong idea of what was wrong with my husband and he confirmed that it was something that was treatable. If we hadn’t seen Dr Singhai, we would be in a terrible place right now. Dr Singhai has a great temperament, he is very understanding, he is easy to talk to, he made us feel really comfortable and he really does care about his patients. He let me express how I felt and I was able to share everything with him. Even now I feel he is fully supporting us and I wouldn’t think twice to recommend him to anyone who has concerns with their movement and/or memory. He explains everything clearly and answers all of our questions. Dr Singhai gave us the hope we needed at the time we needed it most and at the time when all hope was lost so we are incredibly grateful for everything he has done so far.

 

Dr Singhai was brilliant – thank you

 

Dr Singhai has been very helpful, responsive and a calming and reassuring adviser.

 

Our experience of Dr Singhai was that he was a very competent Doctor who understood the needs of his patients extremely well. He was thorough, careful and caring and considered the patients needs very well. He was the only Doctor we saw who seemed to fully understand the illnesses that my husband had and considered my husband always with dignity and compassion. I cannot thank him enough for the way in which he treated my husband.

 

Dr. Singhai has been treating my wife since her leaving Lister hospital in October 2018. At this time her condition was very poorly suffering from delirium and her ongoing Parkinsons /Dementia. Dr. Singhai as a first course of action reviewed all her existing medications and effectively started a new course of treatment, with regular reviews to note progress. The result has been quite extraordinary with progress in all areas, ie Improved mobility and cognition and sleep pattern. We are therefore as a family extremely grateful for his treatment of my wife (which is ongoing) and would highly recommend his services.

 

My husband has been a patient of Dr Singhai since April 2019 and has had exceptional care. After some assessments he was diagnosed with dementia with Lewy Bodies and prescribed medication. Dr Singhai always has time for his patients and includes them in all the conversations even though it is difficult for dementia patients to engage fully in conversation. He also is happy for family members to attend the clinics enabling support and involving them within the consultation. We are very lucky and grateful for everything he has done and also to his PA’s ensuring we get our appointments or contacting Dr Singhai if we have a problem, nothing is too much trouble for any of them! I have no doubt that my husband has the right consultant for his illness and feel very grateful we found him!

 

I wanted to thank you immensely for all your help and support in looking after my mother recently. I found the service via yourself, your secretary and the hospital very efficient.

I felt you were listening to me and took on board everything I said. You took the time to examine my mother thoroughly and  reach a diagnosis. The investigations were arranged quite promptly and a close follow up plan was recommended. You very kindly explained the medications and side effects in detail and hence I was more prepared to deal with them.

There were occasions when I needed your advice on the phone and I am amazed how promptly you responded to that.

I was desperate for medical advice and support at that time and you were very kind, thorough and efficient in providing that service for my mother. You made sure your patients were kept well informed and offered medical care even when you were caught due to unavoidable circumstances. I feel you have been an amazing Dr and I am  very grateful to you for all the care you have provided to my mother, while supporting me as her carer at the same time.

Unfortunately she took a  turn for the worse and is still in hospital. I have not received the same support as yourself and have found the attitude  quite dismissive by other medical professionals. I wish everyone could offer the same level of care and professionalism as you did.

 

I take this unusual step of writing to you in order to thank you for the huge success of the care and patience that you have given my Mum since you first met her. Your success in controlling Mum’s challenges has been immense and you have also made sure that Mums retains many interests and her dignity in the twilight of her life. For that I shall be forever grateful to you.

 

Thank you organising consultation with Doctor Soumit Singhai. The consultation was professional, sympathetic thorough, very helpful and clear for my husband. Doctor Singhai is amazing – Thank you.

 

He is a good doctor. He listens and remembers what you have told him previously. He seems genuinely concerned.

 

Knowledgeable about condition. Kind and understanding. Have faith in him.

 

I have found my appointments with Dr Singhai very helpful and informative with regard to the treatment for my condition.

 

Absolutely first class care and medical attention! This consultant deserves a medal for his care and concern!

 

A pleasure to be seen by this very pleasant doctor.

 

Excellent care all round.

 

Very impressed and felt less worried having seen this doctor.

 

Interested, kind and knowledgeable. Very happy with the treatment I am given.

 

Could I also ask you to thank Dr Singhai too for all of his expertise and care. It is so very reassuring to finally know exactly what occurred and how to deal with accordingly for the future to prevent any further problems.

 

Dr Singhai was brilliant -thank you.
