    After suffering horrendously for years with my urological conditions, I am extremely grateful and happy that I persisted and came across (and booked) a consultation with Mr. S Chitale. Mr. Chitale was extremely thorough and practical in his diagnosis and keeping track of my symptoms. The advice he shared and his management of my health has been the most efficient (and effective) that I have experienced to date. Mr. Chitale maintained constant communication and it was evident that my conditions were of great importance to him. I felt he was well invested in my journey to recovery and the treatment plan was well presented, understood and amended (when/where necessary), so that we were able to obtain the greatest results possible. Mr. Chitale blended his great people skills with his medical expertise to understand my personality and medical situation. Prior to my consultation, I believed I was a dire situation, which led to hopelessness and the depths of low emotion. However, Mr. Chitale was both confident and motivating in turning my situation around so that I can now truly look forward and take control of my life again! Thank you so much

    I met Mr Chitale in Jan 2021 and over the course of 6 months had surgery at the London Clinic and a number of follow ups. I always felt comfortable with Mr Chitale and he covered in simple terms what may be causing me issues, what steps were to be taken and what the ongoing resolution would be. I would absolutely recommend Mr Chitale.
