    Thank you for your kind review. Please could you contact my office to share your referral letter? Sometimes it is required only for your insurers as I take a full medical history but I can add it to your record so it is complete. Apologies for not taking it during the appointment.

    I found Professor Kochhar to be patient and good at explaining what was going on with my shoulder. I've seen other experts and frankly been confused by how the explanation was given to me in the past. Thank you for taking the time to listen first and explain everything so clearly.

    Professor Kochhar and his entire team have been extremely helpful. I am seeing other specialists for other conditions at the same time and by far his team have been the most friendly and efficient. Makes it feel like my shoulder condition is well taken care of. Thank you.
