    I cannot recommend Mr Nnochiri highly enough. From my first consultation, where he was understanding and informative, explaining all of my options in terms I could easily understand, to my procedure, where he was reassuring and put me at ease to my follow up where he explained the whole of my operation in detail so I could fully understand and make informative decisions going forward. He has a very friendly manner and it was a pleasure to have him look after me.

    Fibroids
    I was referred to Dr Nnochiri by my insurers. From my initial consultation with him to the point of surgery took approximately two months. We discussed the various forms of treatment for my condition, also the pros and cons. He asked me to go away, think about the options and revert to him with any questions and my decision. We concluded on a laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy as I wanted to retain my uterus. I had never had any form of surgery so was very apprehensive and nervous. He made me feel at ease. The surgery went smoothly and surprisingly, the pain was minimal. He was always professional and I will highly recommend him.

    I saw Dr Nnochiri due to a pain in my lower abodemen and difficulty conceiving. Dr Nnochiri arranged for me to have various scans and blood tests to rule out any issues and prescribed me with tablets to help me ovulate. Throughout the whole experience, he was caring and professional. I really appreciate the help Dr Nnochiri has given me.

    Dr Nnochiri was very professional throughout all of my consultations. He took time to listen to my health concerns and careful explained the options available to me, giving me the choice to decide how to proceed. Dr Nnochiri always put me at ease and didn't mind answering my numerous questions. He even managed to accommodate seeing me very last minute which I was really grateful for. I really appreciate all the help Dr Nnochiri provided me and if I need anything in the future, I will definitely book to see him again.

    Patient seen for:
    Fibroids
    I had an open myomectomy. I'd had a similar operation c10 years previously so was naturally apprehensive. At the initial consultation Mr Nnochuri took time to describe all the possible treatment options, the pros and cons of each, allowing me to come to an informed decision. Most importantly Mr Nnochuri asked what I wanted to achieve post-op. I wished to do everything to retain my uterus, not necessarily for future pregnancy but because it was important to my overall well-being and how I feel as a woman. I had 49 fibroids removed and have made a good recovery thus far (I am 4 weeks post-op). I have been left with a very neat scar as Mr Nnochuri tidied up the c1.5cm wide scar I'd been left with from the operation c10 years previous. During my recovery period Mr Nnochuri has answered my and my partner's numerous ad hoc questions by email which has been important as they don't all come to mind before discharge from hospital. In summary I have had full confidence in Mr Nnochuri from our very first consultation and am very pleased that I found him.

    Dr Nnochiri was very knowledgeable, understanding and emphathetic . He was really easy to talk to and I felt happy and relaxed after discussing my concerns with him. The operation I had went very smoothly . I had very small scars and recovered quickly. He was very caring and helpful and I’d have no hesitation in returning if I have any further problems.

    Fibroids
    I’ve been treated for large fibroids by Mr. Nnochiri. From the first appointment, I felt I was in the right hands. Being around really bad symptoms over 2 years and treated for so many doctors he finally solved my problem. In just a week notice I had a laparoscopy surgery with him and he removed 5 large fibroids. Very clean procedure with insignificant scars and totally recovered in 2 weeks. I would like to emphasise the professionalism of Mr. Nnochiri, not only in the surgical technique but in the personal approach as when he talks you can feel he is completely sure of what he is doing, and that is a peace of mind for the patient. Definitely, I recommend being treated for Mr. Nnochiri 100%, you will be in the best hands.
