Testimonials


Dr Ahsan is a cardiologist recommended to us because he worked south of the Thames as well as in the north, and I can’t think that there is a better doctor. From the very beginning, he showed great interest in my wife’s problems, spent much time in his diagnosis, and then took great care to ensure not only my wife but all my family knew exactly what the problem was. He filled us all with great confidence and his dedication to her and to ensure that we all not only understood the problems but were ourselves coping with the strain of them. His patience and dedication were unbelievable and in my experience, despite being very busy, his patience with all of us could not have been exceeded. His operation passed smoothly and had the desired effect and I have no doubt has prolonged my wife’s life. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody needing a cardiologist. A very fine, caring and skilled man

Spire St Anthony's Hospital

Mr Ahsan has been my conultant for three years. I have always found him to be kind, compassionate and patient. He was particularly patient (as was the whole yeam) when Ichanged my mind about my procedure at the eleventh hour. In each consultation I have never felt rushed. He explains things carefully and, if required, in detail. He is accessible and has always listened to me and answered all of my questions.

St Bartholomew's Hospital

Dr. Ahsan was very thorough and reassuring in his diagnosis. I arrived to his consultation room with left arm and chest pain that I wanted to rule out from being of cardiac origin. Despite his first examination indicating that this problem was probably not of cardiac origin, Dr. Ahsan suggested to go forward with additional exams (Echocardiogram, treadmill ECG, and 24hr ECG), to provide further data. Fortunately all the results came back as negative, and once again Dr. Ahsan was very reassuring in telling me that I am not having any cardiac problems.I definitely recommend him.

I would like to start by saying a massive thank you to Dr Syed Ahsan and his secretary Helen Moss. I have received exceptional care from them both over the last 10 months. I have seen quite a few cardiologists over the past few years since developing AF and SVT during my first pregnancy and I have never had the answers that I needed or the treatment plan that I have now, since seeing Dr Ahsan. I can honestly say that from a relatively young person’s point of view, developing a heart condition is the scariest thing I have ever had to come to terms with. I don’t know where I would be with it if I hadn’t seen Dr Ahsan. I would highly recommend him to anyone out there that’s suffering with the anxiety and worry that comes with dealing with the physical symptoms of a heart condition. Dr Ahsan has treated me as if I am important to him, you are not just another number, gaining my trust was so important I doubt I could have gone through with my ablations without him. No one understands what it feels like when you have a heart arrhythmia, even family and friends can’t relate to it and from my personal experience it’s almost as emotionally challenging as it is physically life changing but with Dr Ahsan and Helen always on the end of an email or phone call I can finally relax knowing that I am in the best hands. I have been treated by Dr Ahsan on the NHS at Barts and privately at the Wellington, on both occasions he went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable with what was going to happen, he also personally checked how I was doing after each ablation. Now, I have the rest of my life ahead of me with my young family, hopefully I can be carefree again and that’s all thanks to Dr Ahsan. Sarah Power (32)THANK YOU!

Dr. Syed Ahsan looked after me in 2015/early 2016 when I was diagnosed with atrial flutter. He had a very calming influence, explained everything in great detail, was always happy to answer questions, both in person and by e-mail and has an extremely pleasant, caring attitude. He carried out a cardiac ablation at The Wellington in August 2015 and this procedure was completely successful.

I cannot recommend him more highly and, in fact, have recently suggested a friend saw him and she, too, was completely happy with his care.

My husband likes to accompany me to appointments and, like me, he was also impressed by Dr. Ahsan’ friendly approach, particularly as at that time a close friend was dying and he always remembered to ask how things were. This may sound like a small thing but it all makes a difference when you have health concernsyourself.

To sum up I cannot recommend Dr. Syed Ahsan more highly than I have tried to convey.

Dr Ahsan treated my 21 year old son for SVT, he is without doubt the kindest, most caring, friendly and calm cardiologist we have ever seen regarding my son’s particular condition. He has twice telephoned us personally and constantly put our minds at rest. He has performed a successful ablation on my son and we could not recommend him more highly. He explained everything thoroughly throughout and everything happened as he said it would, he is quite clearly an expert in his field and in our opinion the best.

Doctor Syed is an exceptionally talented and compassionate cardiologist. I met Dr Syed when I was sort of distressed and in a dilemma about accepting a lucrative job offer as a result of my concern about my cardiovascular health. Dr Syed patiently and diligently assessed me and refereed me for some specialist tests and subsequently he was very meticulous and professional in explaining the outcome to me; which I found very reassuring. I also found his followup and advice on my high blood pressure management very comforting. Overall I found his services excellent and will gladly rate it five star

Excellent clinician. Endlessly patient and reassuring.Also a very efficient back up team.

Dr Ahsan has a distinctive and rare combination of qualities. He is highly skilled technically and is a talented cardiologist working at the cutting edge of his specialty. He demonstrates an astute attentiveness and has a gentle manner. He is very perceptive, calm and considerate. He conveys a quiet confidence in that he is both open minded but clear minded.

He is approachable, available when needed, and responsive to emails/calls. He explains the rationale for his decisions in a way that is easily accessible; nothing seems too much for him. He gives the feeling that he has the time to consider all the relevant issues. For these reasons, I trust his judgement implicitly and would unreservedly recommend him to colleagues or friends.

As a health professional myself, I have assessed many people and trained many doctors. In my opinion, he is an exceptional clinician and his practice is extraordinary . As far as I am concerned, he has managed my situation impeccably and I cannot fault it. What is just so impressive is his sound, supportive and appropriately optimistic management when things are perhaps not going as well as one might like. This is extremely reassuring as he appreciates the necessity of integrating the psychological aspects of care with the physical problems. He treats members of his team with respect and is remarkably unassuming.

To summarize, I would describe Dr Ahsan as an outstanding clinician who has helped to restore my confidence and transformed how I was feeling in many respects. This has re-affirmed my belief in the potential of medicine, in the power of the right word at the right time, and in the value of kindness.

The Wellington Hospital

I wanted a second opinion on an irregular heart rhythm and Dr. Ahsan was good enough to see me at short notice. Initially, I had difficulty in finding the consulting rooms which made me late for the appointment. Dr. Ahsan telephoned me on my mobile to enquire as to my whereabouts and was good enough to come and find me. Dr. Ahsan was very personable and friendly and quickly got to grips with the facts of the situation. He explained the nature of the problem clearly and concisely and outlined the alternatives available in a precise and reassuring manner. I left the appointment better informed and knowledgable and as there was no need for immediate action, better able to make a decision as to future course of action. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Dr. Ahsan.

Dr. Ahsan was the consummate professional and he combines that rare quality of being expert in his field together with the ability to work extremely well with his patients. His manner is one of caring and helpful information whilst being open to questions and awareness of his patients concerns and emotions.I doubt I would have got through my recent experience and operation as well without this. He is an all-rounder, and that would be selling him short because he combines all the right qualities you would expect and hope for from the medical profession and they are rare qualities indeed.All communications and information and arrangements were timely and of a very high standard.

I saw Dr Ahsan at St Anthony’s Hospital following a referral from my GP as I had an irregular heart beat and associated problems. Dr Ahsan listened carefully to all I said and explained in detail what he thought the problem was and his proposed plan of action. He was prepared to spend as long as I needed to understand what he was saying. After various tests he decided I needed surgery and very quickly arranged for me to se a colleague of his , An excellent Surgeon, who very soon carried out a double Heart bypass , from which I quickly recovered. I am currently seeing Dr Ahsan for follow up treatment and couldn’t be happier with the care I have received

Spire St Anthony's Hospital

I have had heart problems since the age of 16 (I am now 28) since then, I have seen numerous cardiologist, from all around the country. Dr Ahsan, has by far, been the best cardiologist I have seen. For many reasons:

1) He really listens
2) He genuinely cares – not only about the problem you have gone to see him about, but about your health in general.

3) He works magic! I have reflex anoxic seizures when I have my blood taken, and therefore, have avoided having my blood taken for years. I have for a long time said that I think gas and air would allow me to have my blood taken without a seizure, to which every other doctor/nurse/cardiologist has said this is not possible. Dr Ahsan, however, used all his networks to find somewhere that would do this for me.

4) He gives you the best care: I am used to having heart monitors attached that have cables all over the place, and are very uncomfortable. However, Dr Ahsan immediately gave me a 14 day heart monitor which was just a small waterproof sticker! He also asked for all my previous tests and correspondence to review – all very thorough.

5) He is very amicable: I think that often, doctors can be so wrapped up in science, they forget how to communicate properly and be personable. This is where I found Dr Ahsan to be particularly unique – he has great communication skills, yet still has all the medical knowledge.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend Dr Ahsan. My mother (who is a nurse) would also highly recommend him – which is a massive compliment coming from her! I’m afraid I don’t have any comments to improve his care, in my opinion, my experience with Dr Ahsan was flawless.

great manner, takes time to listen to you, and very thoughtful and caring.

St Bartholomew's Hospital

Dr Ahsan has been fantastic throughout my care. He is kind and caring and does everything to see me when it is convenient with my schedule as he knows I am at university. He is really approachable and takes time to listen to any concerns I may have. He explains everything clearly and carefully so I always understand my treatment options and feel more in control with everything that has happened. He did a really wonderful job with my ablation and I would recommend him to anyone. I know if I had any problems with my heart I trust absolutely that he would always be able to help.

From the moment i walked in and had the pleasure of meeting Dr Ahsan, he put me totally at ease with his wonderful bedside manner and caring approach. Not only was i impressed with his conscientious and meticulous approach but also the individuals who carried out my various tests which he had taken upon himself to organize for me. Even though it was not all good news i feel totally confident in his ability to continue looking after me.I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

Dr Ahsan is an extremely component doctor. His bedside manner is second to none and he really takes the time to listen to his patients concerns . He is able to arrange fast access to state of the art medical tests and his all round knowledge is second to none , I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Gave us so much time and was so thorough. He made me feel so at ease and I now feel confident I am in the best hands.

I had the good fortune to being cared for by Dr Syed Ahsan when an irregular heartbeat was detected. His outstanding reputation preceded him and the personal testimonials attested to it. Dr Ahsan’s care before, during and after the required procedure was exceptional as was his warm and reassuring manner which has left a lasting impression. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I attended the hospital as an emergency in the hope to see a doctor I was told by reception that there is a cardiologist in this morning and is willing to see me, what a blessing Dr Syed was not only kind but very helpful and continued with my further treatment. Dr Syed is an fantastic cardiologist with compassion and dedication I am privileged to have him as my consultant and I can not thank him enough. R Williams

I would like to thank Dr Syed Ahsan for the excellent treatment he has given me this past year. He is a gentleman and a fantastic consultant and it has been a privilege to have him as my cardiologist I cannot speak highly enough of him and I have total trust in him.

I was delighted to be referred to dr Syed Ahsan six months ago for implantation of a Pace maker. He is a most understanding and excellent surgeon. His follow up technique and swift answering by email of the most neurotic questions, gives me as his patient, total confidence in his future care of me.

I was referred to Dr Ashan following chest pains.Dr Ashan basically Carried out a full MOT of my heart and left me so reassured and positive. He is a truly great Doctor and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. All I can say is thank-you Dr Ahsan for all you did for me.being so

Dr Ashan has supported me through 18 months of a complex heart condition. In that time, he has helped me remain positive, and has been very realistic and pragmatic in his approach and advice. I have found him to be very supportive and available to me during what was a physically and emotionally demanding period.

We feel very reassured that Mr Syed Ahsan is now my husband’s heart consultant. Mr Ahsan is so caring and so generous with his time. We feel so happy that Stanley is now under his care. Thank you so much.

I found Dr Ahsan to be extremely effective in every way. From the very first appointment he was highly professional, always on time and always followed up in the manner in which he said he would in terms of referring me to other clinics for diagnostic tools and eventual treatment. He was very clear in the way he explained the symptoms, their cause and their effect. He discussed treatment options and clearly set out the medication-based alternatives to a procedure as well as any risk factors that needed to be taken into account in deciding what course of treatment to follow. In the event, I opted for a minimally invasive procedure. Dr Ahsan recommended what he felt was the best available clinic in which to have the procedure and he then went ahead and made all the necessary preparations. Throughout the process he and his office maintained clear and professional lines of communication with me. On the day of the procedure he again took me through a detailed explanation of wha twould be done and what effects I might expect to feel afterwards. After the procedure, he visited me again to explain how it had gone from his point of view and reassured me that it had been straightforward. Since having the procedure (four weeks ago) I have been largely free of symptoms (which was the predicted outcome). The post-procedure effects were more or less exactly as forecast by Dr Ahsan. Overall, I could not be more satisfied with the entire treatment process, from initial consultation, through to having the procedure and then to follow-up. I expect to have two or three more follow-up appointments with Dr Ahsan and I have great confidence that they will be as good as everything that I have experienced up to now. Heart problems are by their nature quite scary. I found the treatment I received from Dr Ahsan, in addition to being effective as far as we can know at this early stage, to be very calm, reassuring and confidence-inspiring. D. Quennell, London
