I came to see Dr Qureshi after being diagnosed with a pituitary tumor! I have been treating it at NHS and i am beyond greatful for their care, however as NhS it s unfortunately operating as its capacity i decide to look for a private doctor. Dr Qureshi was very knowledgeable and showed himself very attentious to me. He explained my case with such confidence and clarified somethings that were worrying me about my case. It was great to be followed by him now on my treatment. Tks Dr Qureshi

I am more than impressed about the wonderful advice and care that I have recently received from Dr Qureshi ! I am 80 years old with a history a type 1 diabetic for 63 years but a few weeks ago my readings went completely mad ! Dr Qureshi , via 2 telephone consultations, not only changed my long standing insulin regime with diagrams in support, but also explained the need for a ketone meter and the resulting actions for me to follow if the readings were bad ! Altogether I’m more than thrilled with the amazing advice given and interest showed by this doctor.Ed

I took my father to see Dr. Asjid Qureshi for diabetes care. I was very impressed with his knowledge and expertise. He took the time to answer all of our questions and explain everything in a way that we could understand. He also made us feel very comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Qureshi to anyone looking for a diabetes specialist.

I arranged for my grandson to have a consultation with Dr Qureshi when the medication prescribed by his GP for his condition appeared not to be working. Dr Qureshi instantly recognised the problem, arranged for an appropriate blood test to be done and quickly resolved the problem. We don’t have health insurance, but the outlay was worth every penny. I cannot recommend this specialist highly enough.

What is endocrinology

Endocrinology is the medical speciality that is concerned with hormones and the glands that produce these. Endocrine glands include adrenal, thyroid, pituitary, parathyroid, pancreas, testis, ovaries, etc.  Endocrine disorders may result from under or overproduction of hormones.  Other endocrine conditions may affect the relevant gland without causing dysfunction.

Frequently asked questions

An endocrinologist is a consultant who specialises in the management of hormonal disorders such as hypo- and hyperthyroidism, Addison’s disease, primary hyperparathyroidism, etc.  A diabetologist is a consultant who specialises in the management of diabetes mellitus.  Consultants who work in district general hospitals tend to specialise in both diabetes and endocrinology. Consultants from tertiary hospitals are more likely to continue practising one, but not the other.

You should consultant an endocrinologist if you are suspected to have a hormonal disorder (e.g. hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Addison’s disease, hyperparathyrooidism, etc.)  You may want to consult a diabetologist if (i) you have recently been diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, (ii) have poor control, or (iii) have complications of diabetes.

A paediatric endocrinologist sees patients under the age of 16-18 yrs. The precise cut-off varies depending on the consultants and factors such as medical indemnity cover. Patients older than this, should consultant an adult endocrinologist. Many of the disorders treated in endocrinology are similar in paediatrics and adulthood, but there are many disorders that are specific to each age group e.g. growth disorders in children, but not adults.

To find an NHS endocrinologist, visit your local hospital’s website and search under endocrinology and diabetes department.

To find a private endocrinologist near you, you can use various sources.

1. Your local private hospital (e.g. BMI, Spire, HCA) website and search under specialty “endocrinology”

2. Search insurers websites (e.g. BUPA) and search using your post code

3. Use search engines such as Google or Bing for “consultant endocrinologist.” An increasing number of private endocrinologists are registering their business with search engines. 

Patient, friend and relative recommendations are very important.  Your GP will often also be able to recommend a consultants in your area.  Independent sites such as Google Business Reviews and Bing are also useful and provide a balance of reviews.  We recommend avoiding websites that list doctors as topace or my specialist for a fee.

To find a good endocrinologist for your initial consultation, ask friends, colleagues and associates for recommendations.  You should also search independent websites such as Google and Bing business reviews.  We recommend avoiding websites that list doctors as topace or my specialist for a fee.

To know if your current endocrinologist is good, you can (i) seek advice from your GP, (ii) compare with the advise you receive from other equivalent specialists you see in the NHS, (iii) assess the response of your symptoms to treatment, (iv) if you are still concerned, you can seek a second opinion from another endocrinologist.

If you have health insurance, you should first obtain authorisation and approval from your insurer and then arrange an appointment to see an endocrinologist by contacting the relevant secretary or the private hospital booking office.

Insurance companies usually require a patient to be referred to an endocrinologist by a GP or another specialist involved in your care. Self-pay patients can self-refer to an endocrinologist and diabetologist.

It is always best to obtain a GP referral letter.  This is indeed a requirement of many health insurers.  Depending on your policy, you may not be covered for costs of consultation/investigations if you are seen without a referral letter.  Self-funding patients can self-refer to an endocrinologist.

You should expect to undergo an assessment (history obtained and examination) and appropriate investigations.  Once a diagnosis is made, treatment should be commenced and reviews undertaken to ensure symptoms have resolved or improved.

If the clinical opinion you have received is sound, your GP will usually follow the advice and recommendations given by your private endocrinologist. This applies to both investigations (if required to undertake in the NHS) and treatment. Whether your GP follows the advice completely is at his/her discretion.

Assuming the correct dietary, exercise, lifestyle and medication-related advice is given, your diabetes control should improve if these are adhered to.  For the greatest efficacy, management should be highly personalised.

A consultation within the private sector does not entitle you to an NHS consultation. To be seen within the NHS will require a referral letter from your general practitioner to be sent to an endocrinologist within the NHS. 

It is often possible to see our consultant within 24 hours. He has two regular private clinics per week, but can often see patients on other days on an ad hoc basis.
