Every patient at the menopause clinic will have a face-to-face consultation with Dr Meyer, who is a menopause expert and highly qualified practising clinician and gynaecologist with over 25 years’ experience, specialising in women’s health. She qualified in 1991 and underwent intensive post-graduate surgical training to become a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. In recognition of her ongoing contribution to the field of gynaecology and women’s health, she was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College in 2012.
Dr Meyer is also a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners and remains in active clinical practice. She also holds the Diploma of Faculty of Family Planning and Reproductive Health.
The Dr Saadia Meyer Clinic offers a range of therapies for the management of perimenopause and menopause. As a menopause expert, Dr Meyer has helped thousands of women and her highly skilled team cover every aspect, from your initial consultation, blood tests, scans and diagnosis through to your personalised treatment plan and prescription. You are kept under regular review to monitor the benefit of treatment. The aim is to provide unified care under one specialist.
Your journey begins with a face-to-face consultation in the clinic with Dr Meyer. You will be required to bring along your ‘Clinical Summary Sheet’, which can be obtained from your local GP surgery. If you have had any recent pelvic ultrasound scans (USS), blood tests or relevant investigations then a copy of those would be helpful. You will have a comprehensive review of your symptoms, your medical history, current medication, and so on. It is a good opportunity for you to ask questions, discuss pressing concerns and clear up any queries you may have.
Baseline blood tests will be organised and these will involve a cost, which you will be advised about. A follow-up appointment is made for approximately a week to 10 days later. At this appointment Dr Meyer will discuss her diagnosis and prescribed a course of medication for you. The medication will be sent to you by the clinic’s own pharmacy.
Six weeks later you will have a review appointment to discuss how the medication is working and if any changes are required. Further blood tests may be required at this point.
Ongoing reviews take place on a six-monthly basis. These are likely to include a pelvic USS for any monitoring as indicated.

Women today will be spending nearly half of their lifetimes on the other side of menopause. Hence, it is important that they are clear about issues that they may be facing or will be facing in the future. They should be able to make an informed choice about options available from which they could benefit in their post-reproductive years.
