Dr Moochala is an outstanding nephthrologist and I place great reliance on his advice and opinion
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!
Responsive, clear and efficient turnaround
I have complete confidence in Dr. Moochhala's professional knowledge. In my experience, he is accessible; he explains everything that a layman needs to know. He is approachable and if I have a query between consultations, I know his secretary will pass it on and will give me the answer in due course.
