    It was our first time with Dr Nwokoro. We just moved to a new area and is always stressing to find a good paediatrician in order to check your kids occasionally. Despite the fact that he was super busy was kind enough to offer me an initial consultation for my baby son. We had a very good initial session and answered all the questions I had. He also performed all the required checks on the baby. Highly recommended if you are in North London / Herts area.

    Dr Chin is incredibly warm and kind, he takes time to explain and put things into plain english to ensure we fully understand the causes, symptoms and treatment management for our son. He's the best in his field and we're incredibly grateful we're able to get his expertise. Our son's health has been significant improvements with Dr Chin and we trust him whole-heartedly.
