Dr Andrew Millar is the Lead Clinician for the Viral Hepatitis Service at the North Middlesex University Hospital, London. He is also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Academic Medical Unit, Royal Free and University College Hospital, as well as Associate Professor of Medicine at St George’s University School of Medicine at Grenada in the West Indies. Dr Millar sees patients privately at BMI King's Oak Hospital, Middlesex.
As a Gastroenterology Consultant since 1997, with a busy practice in an NHS associated teaching hospital, and in the private sector, Dr Millar sees many patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) who require detailed assessment and management. His team includes experienced dieticians trained in modern dietary approaches. For patients who do require investigation he believes in the use of appropriate levels of sedation to ensure the patient has a comfortable experience during any tests that are needed.
Personal treatment philosophy: The diagnosis must start with a careful record of the symptoms and the patient’s concerns. Any investigations must be both safe and proved to be necessary. Treatment must centre on the patient’s individual needs and control over treatment must long term be mainly in the hands of the patient.
