What our patients say…

Essex Private Doctors is a private General Practice in Brentwood.

“I had seen a number of other doctors in recent weeks and I had actually got nowhere near the correct diagnosis. I cannot thank Dr Scott and the practice enough for the wonderful service I received and would recommend her without reservation to family, friends and colleagues.”

“We have been very pleased with Dr Scott’s expertise and diligence.”

“Dr Scott has the right mix of ‘people skills’ and professionalism.”

“I had been suffering minor symptoms for a while and was really unsure of what to do despite feeling that something was wrong. Dr Scott was able to see me at short notice, listened carefully to my concerns, took a detailed history and conducted an ECG. I was immensely reassured by her calm, methodical manner and the way she explained her diagnosis which necessitated a period in hospital and in very short time major surgery. Dr Scott kept in contact throughout the process. I cannot overstate the comfort I took from that personal touch, it was something I remember from doctors in my distant past and until now seemingly lost with all the pressures on the health service.”

“ I have always found it easy to talk about medical issues with Doctor Athreya. He takes the time to listen and explains everything (symptoms, treatments, etc.) carefully, without instantly reaching for the prescription pad, as some GPs do. ”

“ Very pleasant doctor with a sense of humour which goes a long way to put one at ease.”

“Dr Scott is professional as well as personable, I felt very comfortable having my consultation with Dr Scott.”

“I always try to see Dr Athreya as he is easy to talk to and has a caring and efficient manner. He has helped me through several attacks of asthma and I have every confidence in his advice and suggestions as to how to deal with the condition.”

“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 I’ve seen that has taken the time to look up appropriate medication for my problem. I have had this problem for around 6 to 8 months and in 4 weeks he has solved my problem, best treatment ever received. ”

“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.”
