    From day 1 Mr Chilcott was very reassuring, patient and understanding. I could not speak more highly of him. He was very understanding of my history from a previous pregnancy, and put me at ease at every step of the way, explaining things methodically and ensuring all my questions were answered. The level of care and attention was of a high standard throughout, during pregnancy, for the birth and also post-natal care. I was quite nervous to go through pregnancy and birth during the pandemic, and it proved to be a great decision to get the continuity of care from Mr Chilcott. I would highly recommend him.

    I won’t give my entire history but I’ve had a complicated gyn history. I’ve had 4 operations with him, and he has truly improved the quality of my life. He takes time to listen and explain. I have always felt that he actually cares. He is an excellent surgeon. He is as meticulous as you would want but extremely kind. He has always been honest and explained things to me. Can not rate highly enough.

    Mr Chilcott was not only friendly and professional, he was informative and made me feel comfortable given the intimate nature of the appointment. I would not hesitate to see him again, nor would I hesitate to recommend him to other women.

    Dr Chilcott was my doctor for both my pregnancies, and he was caring, attentive and helpful throughout both. I had total confidence in his recommendations and the decisions we made, and if I had had an issue during labour, I would have been happy to have him there as my doctor. When i had questions and concerns one weekend he was available and helpful over WhatsApp.
