Dr Anshuman Malaviya
23rd June 2020
After a really poor and inadequate response from my GP surgery, I took the decision to consult a private rheumatologist who literally 'picked me up off the floor' while I waited for my NHS consultant appointment. Seeing Dr Malaviya face to face for my initial consultation was a revelation. He listened carefully, didn't rush me, gave excellent dietary suggestions and clearly was familiar with the problems I was experiencing. I immediately felt in safe hands and confident to let go of the wonderful private rheumatologist who I couldn't afford to continue seeing. He also wrote to my GP practise clearly outlining the way forward and this was so helpful as I was feeling so let down by them. His manner of delivery is reassuring and compassionate, and just today 5 months later, I have had a follow up appointment on the telephone where again I was able to have an excellent conversation with this amazing man, who has put in place for me a pathway should things deteriorate in the future. I owe him a debt of gratitude and feel thanks to him (and some outside life events) that I am on the way to good current and future health. A heartfelt thanks to you Dr Malaviya.
