    I recently had a colonoscopy with Dr Chatu he was very reassuring before the procedure having an excellent bedside manner calm softly spoken and giving full explanations he also performed biopsies to check for Cellular colitis, the actual procedure could not have been better he gave me just the right amount of sedative and pain relief I asked for biscopan to relax the bowel And this was no problem, I am an NHS patient and extremely grateful to Chelsfield Park Hospital for accepting me there. I would recommend Dr Chatu wholeheartedly.

    I have every confidence in Dr. Chatu. He is very knowledgable and is always willing to explain anything that I do not understand. He does seem to genuinely care about his patients and I always leave knowing exactly what his plans are for my future care. I feel very lucky to be under his care.

    Dr Chatu and his teams were unfailingly friendly and reassuring. They cheered me up with jokes, asked me a few personal questions which put me at ease and made me think that they had a real interest in me. The procedure was quick and pain-free and they gave me a quilt to keep me warm. There was a follow-up telephone conversation which explained very well what my problem was and what to do about it. The only thing that did not come about, was the initial telephone consultation which I had had a letter about, but no one phoned. I would have appreciated someone telling me that either Dr Shatu was too busy or that the consultation was not really necessary.

    Dr Chatu has taken good care to explain the necessary steps and with his great team taken the delicate medical procedures to treat me. He has great humility, has listened to everything I have had to say and been decisive with some justification to fix my ailments.
