Dr Anand Virgincar
MB&BS, MD (Internal Medicine), DNB (Neurology), CCST (Clinical Neurophysiology ), FRCP
Practices at: BMI The Chiltern Hospital
Subsequently, he specialised in neurology at the Bombay Hospital Institute of Medical Sciences in Mumbai under the tutelage of the internationally renowned neurophysician Professor B S Singhal and qualified as a neurologist in 1994, after taking the Diplomate degree examinations conducted by the National Boards, New Delhi.
A passionate interest in medical technology led Dr Virgincar to further subspecialise in Neurophysiology at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford & immediately after completing his specialist training in 1999, was appointed as a Consultant In Clinical Neurophysiology by the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals (with responsibility for provision of services to the National Spinal Injuries Centre in Stoke Mandeville).
Dr Anand Virgincar is a firm believer in the principle that an investigation needs to be interpreted in the overall clinical context. Hence, all his patients are booked into 1 hour slots providing ample time for as detailed a clinical evaluation as dictated by individual cases before proceeding to the neurophysiological test.
This approach and the 6 plus years of clinical neurology experience preceding his neurophysiology practice helps him particularly in handling referrals from non-neurologists like Orthopaedic & Plastic surgeons who are often mistakenly referred non-surgical issues masquerading as one’s needing surgical intervention.
Also , being keenly aware of the disproportionate concern often caused by even benign neurological symptoms, Dr Virgincar attempts to offer all patients appointments within 10 days of receiving a referral & dispatches reports within 24 hours of the study.
He is available 24/7 on the phone to referring consultants & hospital staff to resolve queries & for discussion on complex and/or urgent cases.
