Dr. Nisar is one of the easiest consultants I have come across. He was very thorough in examination and explained the treatment process in great detail. What a pleasure it was to meet him

Dr Nisar was the 5th consultant we have had consultations with.. referred by Dr Humayun from ‘The Saxon clinic’ for a second opinion... After 6 months of many scans/medications etc we have eventually found the consultant who diagnosed my illness on our first meeting he has been so reassuring and explained everything in detail and is slowly changing my medication and hopefully I will soon get my life back on track

Dr Nisar was extremely thorough and very professional in his approach to my illness. He listened carefully and explained his conclusions very clearly. I felt very confident that by following his instructions I would get to the bottom of what had happened to me.

Dr Nisar took time to understand my complex medical history. He was able to explain why I have had conflicting diagnoses from several different specialists in the past . He also reassured me concerning my latest symptoms, and has suggested alternative medications to hopefully bring these under control .

Dr Nisar listened patiently and managed to diagnose an issue doctors had not solved for the last 40 years.

Dr Nisar was a lovely, lovely doctor. We both felt that he listened to what we had to say and explained everything clearly. He was not patronising and we felt that we could talk to him without feeling that we were a nuisance. He didn't rush us and had it been under different circumstances it would have been a pleasure to meet him. Most of all he had a sense of humour. Thank you so much Dr Nisar.

Dr Nisar was very thorough in his history, he listened patiently and then formulated an excellent management plan. This is something which I have been looking for a long time but had not found up until now. He was kind and compassionate throughout. I would highly recommend him to anyone not only because of his manner but also clinical ability.
