“I required surgery of a rather delicate and risky nature. I felt I needed a person I was completely confident in. I was a patient of Mr Chineguwundoh in Barts urology department, he was always very easy to discuss my problems with but very professional with his advice. Mr Chineguwundoh was patient and respectful when discussing my questions and concerns and helped me fully understand my situation and feel in control of my own treatment. I discussed the situation with him he informed me of the possible problems that could arise but never the less he inspired me with confidence so I went ahead. On the morning of my surgery he came in to make sure all was well and we had a relaxed conversation. His friendly demena helped me feel comfortable, calm and reassured. After the surgery he waited until I was fully recovered before he left, his level of patience and care helped me be confident during my recovery. Mr Chinrguwundoh was a amazing docotor, he is respectful, kind, caring and calm. His love for his profession and patients is visable and reassuring. “

    Right from the initial consultation I have found Professor Chinegwandoh to be straight-talking regarding my projected TURP treatment, as well as friendly and approachable. I take his professional expertise and experience for granted. He was recommended to me by an acquaintance of my wife, met at the church she attends, who is an orthopaedic surgeon in a London hospital.I have now had the operation and believe that my recovery and convalescence are proceeding normally. I have been invited to a follow-up consultation on 23 April 2021 at which my progress will be reviewed. Altogether I have been wholly satisfied by my treatment.
