    I switched over to Dr Chahal as I was previously under another endocrinologist and wanted a second opinion about my weight. In my opinion he is the best in town. I would greatly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an endocrinologist. I work as a nurse so I can tell when a doctor is really good and uptodate with the latest studies and treatment options.

    I have seen consultants in the NHS and privately before but Dr Chahal is the first doctor to help me with my weight. Other doctors have recommended bariatric surgery but Dr Chahal listened to my concerns and put me on a medication that has meant I have lost weight. I am glad I listened to his expert advice.

    The content of the consultation itself with Dr. Chahal was ok for me. Although the event and semantics surrounding the consultation did not go well; the timeliness of the reports, referral, bills , mismanagement of appointment time etc. I would have given better rating if not for these.

He is the first doctor I have seen who has been non-judgmental and really knows the field of weight management. He talked through all the different options and I feel happy under his expert care.

    I can not thank Dr Chahal enough. I was anxious when my GP told me I had a prolactin problem but Dr Chahal really put me at ease with his calm manner. I saw him for a problem with prolactin and my pituitary which is now much better.
