Explanation

Dr Chin very quickly put my (slightly nervous) 6 year old daughter at ease with his relaxed and fun approach to the consultation. He took a detailed history and examined her whilst singing and chatting to distract her. Our daughter had been prescribed inhalers for cough variant asthma by the GP and they hadn’t particularly helped. Dr Chin suggested a different potential diagnosis and treatment which so far has hugely improved her symptoms. I mentioned our appointment with Dr Chin to a consultant surgeon friend who had actually worked with him in a previous NHS trust (small world!) and said he was a genius and absolutely exceptional. We would highly recommend Dr Chin. We feel relieved and reassured by the initial consultation and confident in the plan he has put in place for follow up.

Dr Chin is an incredible consultant. He took time to really understand the issues with my daughter and identified the true problem in a single visit, despite other doctors offering a different diagnosis. Dr Chin made us feel heard and reassured my daughter that everything was going to be fine and she would feel better soon, which is true! I cannot thank Dr Chin enough!

We are so greatful that we were able to see Dr Chin for our son. Dr Chin is brilliant. Actually... he is better than brilliant! Dr Chin listened to everything we had concerns about and was able to diagnose and offer treatment. Our son is now able to sleep throughout the night without chronic cough/nasal congestion that was disrupting his sleep for months and multiple GP visits wasn't helping. Dr Chin is warm, friendly and a true professional in his field. We would definitely recommend Dr Chin for anyone who has asthma/allergy conditions.

Our first appointment with Dr Chin was excellent. He was great with our three year old son. He took a very thorough history and prescribed a course of action in line with what I was hoping for to get to try to solve our son's chest issues. I came away feeling reassured that we were in very capable hands and that we were on the right track to making our son better after months of issues.

Explanation

I cannot explain how thorough Dr. (Chin) Nwokoro is! He talked to my son, who is six (after carrying him into the room as he was fast asleep across my lap)! He talked to me, divulging into my concerns! He did tests - repeating some of those previously requested but the hospital could not complete due to staff shortages (this was on the test result page)! He gave us an appointment on a day he doesn’t work so as to complete tests for my son and medicate him appropriately. He even had time to explain why I should be taking medicines prescribed for me. Regarding my son, he explained his concerns, medications, costs, next appointment, correspondence with my GP… everything! Then Dr. Nwokoro called me one evening as he had the results from my son’s tests! He put my mind at ease, explained the course of meds to be taken, etc. I pray to God that I will always have money to go private! I hope that this man continues to do private work as someone like me would never have found him otherwise! To me he is a doctor by name and by nature. A Blessed man.

Explanation

We are very excited that we have met Dr Chin on a time when my son desperately needed a follow-up from NHS, but couldn't get it on time. We had to go to our local private hospital and didn't regret it at all, as it had Dr Chin as expert in pediatric respiratory medicine! Since then we fully trust Dr Chin and prefer to go to that private hospital (even if meanwhile we moved to other town), each time my son has follow up, only to be monitored by him, than to go through NHS to other doctors (even though Dr Chin encouraged us to further see us through NHS, but the distance didn't suit us). Excellent care for his young pacients and their families, always there in case you need further advice or have an emergency! Highly recommend!
