Relax, with time to talk…
Your consultation will be with one of our fully qualified, and highly experienced doctors, and take place within a comfortable, well-equipped surgery. You will receive a thorough consultation, with ample time to properly discuss your health concerns or illness.
Any additional investigations, such as ECGs and blood tests will be performed by your doctor during the appointment. These would incur additional charges, which would always be discussed with you before proceeding. In addition, the appointment will also include the writing of a prescription or recommendation of further tests or treatment.
Thank you Dr Scott for all the help and care you gave my husband during the last months of his life. Though a sad time I was amazed at how helpful and understanding you were and so kind. Many thanks.
We have been very pleased with Dr Scott’s expertise and diligence.

“ Doctor Athreya is always punctual with appointment times and very efficient when dealing with his patient in my experience. My children also attend his clinic. His manner is always caring and professional and he never makes you feel like he is hurrying you up. I would recommend him to anyone. ”
“ Dr Athreya is one of the most open, friendly and professional individuals that I have had the pleasure to meet, an excellent physician who is always willing to go the extra mile to help his patients. He puts you at ease, very polite, and I must be completely honest, he is the only one…
