Please note, Dr Segal is fee assured with Bupa and AXA PPP, so no additional fees for consultations or procedures
will be invoiced above their agreed rates
Consultations for new patients are scheduled for 45 minutes. Follow up and review appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes. Please bring documentation from previous medical consultations (including ECGs and other test results), if available. UK residents should bring a letter of referral from their GP (or from another medical specialist). Dr Segal is recognised by all major private health insurance companies in the UK. Patients with private medical insurance must contact their insurance company prior to the appointment in order to obtain a pre-authorisation code or claim number.
We will send invoices directly to an insurer only if a pre-authorisation code is provided. Please note payments made by an insurer are considered to be a contribution towards the cost of treatment; the ultimate responsibility for payment lies with the patient. The exact level of cover and any potential shortfall (for which the patient will be liable) should be established at the outset.
Dr Segal is happy to provide second opinions for patients who have previously been assessed by another cardiologist.
Dr Segal has admitting rights and can perform procedures at the following hospitals:
Please check with your insurance company which hospital(s) your cover permits access to.
Please note that should you need to cancel your appointment, 24 hours’ notice must be given or an account will be rendered, set at the full cost of the consultation, which is not eligible for reimbursement by an insurer.
Dr Segal runs weekly arrhythmia clinics at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital on Tuesday mornings, University College London Hospital on Monday mornings and Homerton University Hospital on Monday afternoons. Clinic formats are similar to consultations in private practice with the important exception that consultation times are shorter, patients can be seen by a Specialist Registrar rather than Dr Segal and investigations are usually not possible the same day as the appointment.
Please contact your GP for a referral. Referrals should be sent to:
