    I have 3 children, the oldest of which is now 15 and over the 15 years of being a mother I have seen countless specialists doctors . I have never received such thoughtful and thorough care and responses as we have from Dr Chinedu, even from our very first point of email contact. He has carefully considered every detail of our child's case and patiently explained all the possible diagnoses to us with great clarity. As a mother I have never felt such confidence in a doctor as I have with Dr Chinedu. He clearly cares deeply about the wellbeing of the children and is so completely knowledgeable, insightful and professional that he is able to provide a level of care and advice that I have never experienced from any doctor before. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending him at every level.

    Dr Chin is clearly an expert in his field, he gave us great comfort from the initial phone call through to diagnosis, clearly explaining the prognosis and care plan. The questions and conclusions he came to made great sense to us, and after having seen many doctors before Dr Chin, we can't believe this has been missed till now. His flexibility and extra care is so appreciated. We're feeling really positive for our son's future and health thanks to this man - thank goodness for Dr Chin!

    A breathe of fresh air to have a doctor that takes the time to actually listen to what you are saying and to take the time to explain in detail what you need to know. Wish i had found Dr Chin years ago! I know my son is in good hands.

    I had taken my 2 month old son to Dr Nwokoro for a skin rash that he developed and for an overall check up. Dr Nwokoro did a thorough check and further referred us to a specialist dermatologist to be certain with the diagnosis. He was very re-assuring, friendly and took a genuine interest in the wellbeing of my baby and our family. I would highly recommend Dr Nwokoro.
