“ I found my experience of Dr. Moochalla's care for me during my recent illness to have been especially unique and beneficial in explaining each step in my recovery. He carefully explained what had produced my medical problem and what had been the reasons for me having to be rushed to hospital. He then very cogently explained to a rather anxious patient, the steps he had taken with my medications, to reduce my dangerously high potassium levels and the extra need to ensure that my other many health problems and medications were adjusted so as not to affect these while he restored my levels to normal over a period of three weeks of treatment. I have had the benefit of exceptional consultants for my various illnesses. Dr. Moochhala stands out as a great physician among them and I shall always appreciate his kindness and care during this very anxious time for my wife and me. “

    I have got not a simple case with a rich history of renal disorders in my family, and with Dr Moochhala I both stopped the progression of my disorder and felt safe and supported. He proved to be an amazing professional who gives full attention to your case, spending as much time with you as it is necessary to get all the details, ask meaningful questions, provide his recommendations and explain the reasons behind them. When it comes to interventions or treatment, he carefully weighs all the benefits vs risks and side-effects and flexibly adjusts the course of treatment when presented with the new information. I can't recommend him enough.

    My husband and I were delighted with our consultations with and care by Dr Moochhala. A pleasant manner and calm approach are important when talking about health problems and we were very satisfied. I am always looking for more and more clarification when discussing tests and their results and the nature of the illness in question.

    Dr Moochhala was at all times kindly, encouraging, and helpful. He explained things to us thoroughly and in language it was easy to understand. He followed my case from the ITU at the Royal Free Hospital to my discharge to home 120+ miles away, and then monitored my condition and managed my treatment via telephone consultations and video-conferences, collaborating and communicating well with my local GP surgery. Despite the difficulties presented by the Covid-19 lockdown, Dr. Moochhala continued to give me the excellent care, and careful monitoring I would not have received otherwise. Due largely to his expertise and confidence I was able to return home without fear, and have continued to make excellent progress. My next consultation and blood-tests are scheduled for 3 months from now - which gives you an idea of how well I am doing. Dialysis in ITU to a happy normal life in 31/2 months is more than I could have hoped for. I would recommend him without any hesitation!
