“The best consultant I’ve been lucky enough to meet. Mr Chitnavis is extremely personable, patient, caring and understanding with an ability to read the room, see the bigger picture whilst also having a laser like focus on the issues at hand. He has a great bedside manner and will put you immediately at ease and take your concerns seriously. No matter how unsure/hesitant you might be about sharing your concerns (big/small) he is reassuring and encourages you to talk. Other doctors/consultants can sometimes come across a little dismissive, but Mr Chitnavis epitomises what every medical professional should be. He’s a rare find and a real asset to HCA. “
