    Overall Experience (5/5)
    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    I first saw Dr Chinegwundoh shortly after I had left hospital, having been admitted with severe Covid pneumonia. At this stage, I was still struggling with my breathing and I was physically very weak. He had been recommended by my GP. He carried out a number of tests to identify specific issues and then recommended a treatment plan and prescribed the appropriate medicines. Under his care and guidance I have made a very strong recovery and I feel almost back to normal. Dr Chinegwundoh is clearly an expert in his field. Not only do I have complete trust in him, he also has a friendly and caring bedside manner. Finally, I have also been impressed by the way in which he sends a detailed written summary after each consultation. I feel fortunate that he has treated me and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
