    I had a frenuloplasty with Professor Frank Chinegwundoh. The entire experience was fantastic. Professor was incredibly kind and supportive throughout the entire process. Even after my operation, Professor ensured I was happy and comfortable before I went home. My results are brilliant and ultimately life changing - It has increased my confidence drastically and is a huge weight off my shoulders. I would urge absolutely anyone considering the operation to delay no further and book a consultation with Professor Chinegwundoh. I will be forever grateful for his service.

    At the initial consultation, Professor Chinegwundoh gave me a clear description of the TURP procedure with its risks and benefits. It was carried out by him and his team with no discomfort or pain to me and in subsequent discussions he gave me the reassurance I needed that the procedure had gone well and would be successful. Conveying that confidence was important to me. I am grateful for his clear expertise and his ability to listen and explain.

    A wholly positive experience with Professor Chinegwundoh. I was referred to him by my GP and within a week he had completed the battery of tests/procedures which I needed. He was a pleasure to deal with, explaining clearly what was needed and why and taking the time to answer my questions. He was very down-to-earth and intelligent, and I had complete confidence that I would receive the highest quality care from him. Once the results of my tests came back, he explained them clearly and took the time to ensure that I did not have any residual concerns. I very much appreciated his good humored professionalism during what was an anxious period.

    Professor Chinegwundoh was extremely attentive in the consultations, explaining clearly the risks, expected outcome and recovery times of the surgical procedure. I felt at ease throughout and was not rushed, allowing me the opportunity to ask any questions I had without feeling uncomfortable. His medical secretary, Kim Bullock, has also been supportive by answering any questions or referring them onto the Professor if required. In our final consultation he displayed a genuine interest in my long-term recovery which I appreciate. I am very happy with the outcome of the surgery and the level of excellence of Professor Chinegwundoh demonstrated throughout his care in my case. I would definitely recommend him.

    An absolutely superb urologist, in fact the best medic I’ve ever come across: hugely experienced obviously; thoughtful, thorough and sensible advice; a truly wonderful manner, giving the impression he has as much time as I needed; and on two separate occasions, Prof Chinegwundoh went way above and beyond what could have reasonably been expected of him. Probably the easiest recommendation I’ve ever made.
