    I've met Dr Chahal twice now and both times he was kind & attentive. He clearly explained everything he wanted to test me for and he was patient when he took me through the results & next steps. I felt very much part of the conversation.

    I have been under the care of Dr Chahal for some years now . He is a gentleman and very thorough and very knowledgeable in his field and up to date with his medical knowledge .Though I am a medical doctor , he always explains everything in great detail and ensures I fully understand and agree with my management. Eager to answer any questions or queries , I have always been very satisfied with my consultations with him. It’s also quite easy to get appointments with him be it face to face (pre and post covid lockdown ) as well as telephone consultations when that has been my preferred option. I also like the fact that I get sent a copy of my consultation letter which is also sent to my Gp very soon after the consultation. Highly recommended.
