“Dr Chatu was very kind, caring and understanding of my son's health condition. He assessed his current condition, explained everything in a clear, calm manner. He made the necessary referrals, advised of the steps to move forward. My son and i both left feeling reassured at a valuable time in my son's life who is a student. We look forward to receiving details of our discussion and having the support to manage my son's condition moving forward. “
