“I first saw Dr Chinegwundoh shortly after I had left hospital, having been admitted with severe Covid pneumonia. At this stage, I was still struggling with my breathing and I was physically very weak. He had been recommended by my GP. He carried out a number of tests to identify specific issues and then recommended a treatment plan and prescribed the appropriate medicines. Under his care and guidance I have made a very strong recovery and I feel almost back to normal. Dr Chinegwundoh is clearly an expert in his field. Not only do I have complete trust in him, he also has a friendly and caring bedside manner. Finally, I have also been impressed by the way in which he sends a detailed written summary after each consultation. I feel fortunate that he has treated me and I have no hesitation in recommending him. “

    Having struggled with lengthy turnaround times with my GP, for example a 3.5 week turnaround time on an x ray, i decided to got to Dr Chinegwundoh at short notice. I had by this time been unwell for almost three months and a cough which was so violent it was pulling muscles in my back Immediately the Doctor took control, gave me an Xray, results in 10 minutes, a CT scan and then a broncoscopy With a relaxed and confident manner he diagnosed me inside two weeks, and found i had Necrotising Pneumonia caused by Pseudomonas Aeruginosa I cannot describe how grateful I am to the Doctor for sorting this, as the GP choice was to leave me and X Ray me gain in 8 weeks The manner and speed in which I was treated was exemplary and I always felt very cared for and safe in his care I could not be more grateful to Dr Chinewundoh John
