Dr Daniel Fishman


Consultant Rheumatologist

+++ COVID-19 +++

During this current crisis, many patients with rheumatological conditions will be concerned that they are unable to see their NHS Rheumatologist, gain advice or information about their condition, or be able to see me as a private patient.

I would liketo reassure my current and future patients that - in addition to my NHS general medical and rheumatology commitments - I remain available for consultations via WhatsApp or telephone - please contact Lorna, my Private Secretary, to arrange an appoinemnt. Most Provate Providers will cover a telephone consultation.
