Dr Fareeha Rizvi

Consultant in diabetes, endocrinology and general medicine


"Spire London East Hospital has been serving the local population for several years, I, myself have been a patient here and have been inspired by the caring culture and highest possible standards."

I have been a NHS doctor for over 16 years and have trained all over London. My special interests are the management of type 2 diabetes in South Asian people and endocrine disorders of the pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands. I also have an interest in women's health (PCOS, pregnancy and menopause).

I have regular radio programmes and host a weekly television show called 'Health Matters' on Sky 737 where I cover a variety of topics and take calls from viewers. My speciality and general medical experience mean I am able to handle and diagnose complex cases.

I am the Lead for Insulin Safety at Whipps Cross Hospital, which involves me delivering educational sessions to medical health professionals.
