We had a great experience with Dr Sattar. He saw my daughter with just 1.5hours notice and gave me the correct advice to proceed with antibiotics for my poorly daughter. I would recommend this service and will certainly be using it again when necessary.

a first class consultation with excellent communication of the issue - just like GP's used to be

I am very impressed with Avicenna Health. My first encounter was 23rd December when I had very little hope of seeing a doctor and I was able to get a consultation and medication before Christmas, I have used them since as has my partner and I remain impressed with responsiveness and quality of advice. I have recommended to friends and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Just before the pandemic, I approached Avicenna through google search, for specialised and dedicated GP help manage all areas of illnesses for my vulnerable elderly parents. Dr Sattar, Dr Mohsin and the team remained consistent with their care, very efficient, always prompt, well focussed, professional, extremely knowledgeable on all health issues and they go out of their way each time! God directed me to turn to Avicenna last week for my elderly dad who has been suffering from viral infection. Dr Sattar quickly arranged the home visit, thoroughly followed up his diagnosis, and with his expert medical advice my elderly dad is already feeling better. An absolute relief from hospitalisation. I wish everyone at Avicenna Health the very best of success as you all deserve it! Thankyou for your continuous excellent care , support and service.

Very impressed with the expendiency, professionalism and kindness of the doctor. Both my dad and I are unable to go to the doctor, so having the option of calling Avicenna was a life saver.

Tests and treatments for a healthy heart

If you have been experiencing symptoms like shortness of breath, heart palpitations or chest pain, this could indicate a problem with your heart. We know these symptoms can be worrying, so rest assured you will be able to see a doctor quickly at Avicenna.

It is recommended to have regular cardiovascular health check-ups if you are over the age of 45 or have a family history of heart conditions.

We can perform ECG tests at our clinic in Woodford Green, Essex. If you need other investigations such as an ultrasound or CT scan these will be done at a local hospital.
