Dr Ammar’s Veincentre Clinic Sessions

Veincentre London
Friday: 9:00 – 18:30

Dr Ammar has committed to working at Veincentre London on a Friday. If you book an initial consultation with Dr Ammar in London, all your future appointments will be with Dr Ammar in London. As such, it is important to note that if you opt to go ahead with treatment this will be undertaken with Dr Ammar on a Friday (as will all future follow-up appointments).

Occasionally Dr Ammar may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however, we cannot guarantee appointment dates on any other day than a Friday even if a previous appointment was on a different day. If you are unable to attend one of Dr Ammar’s dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with the other consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/ date to book.

Please note that due to holidays Dr Ammar may not be available every Friday.

The transparency and robustness of its patient safety and governance processes are exemplary. This underpins the foundation for a very enjoyable and safe practice.”
