Kind and reassuring at all times
Very friendly and informative
David was always reassuring and friendly. Would always respond to emails or worries that we had with reassurances.
Dr Ogutu is by far the kindest, most caring Doctor we have ever met. He listens to his patients and takes great care and consideration when planning treatment. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and even though he’s clearly a medical professional with a great amount of intelligence, he never fails to respond to your questions and worries in a human way. Even though our fertility journey continues, we owe a great deal to Dr Ogutu for firstly believing me when I said I had endometriosis (3 other consultants from across the country had completely dismissed this as a route to investigate), secondly for treating the endometriosis and finally for getting us further than we’ve ever been before in a pregnancy (sadly I miscarried - but we believe this is due to egg quality). He’s a genius and we look forward to continuing our journey under his care.
I had my FET hère and I wish I had come here earlier. I was treated by Dr David with care and what I loved the most was that I got to see him on 99% of my appointments not some strange doctor. This made the experience wonderful and peaceful which I believe contributed to the success of my pregnancy. I have recommended dr David to all my friends because of the personalized service I received from Dr David. Also, no assumptions were made on my first visit. I was checked and given next steps unlike the first hospital I went to which had a lot of confusion and assumptions.
Mr David Ogutu was amazing. I had never had surgery before and was scared however, i was made to feel completely at ease. Mr Ogutu explained everything and made the whole experience easier. I would recommend Mr Ogutu to anyone.
Mr.Ogutu is an amazing doctor! He always explains procedures properly and I always understand what is happening and feel comfortable in the environment. Very friendly and always open to asking any questions you may have. My best doctor!
I will never be able to thank Mr Ogutu enough after 6 years of recurrent miscarriage and losing 6 baby’s me and my husband were ready to give up but then I met With Mr Ogutu and he found And fixed my problem after countless consultants missing it or misdiagnosing it .( I had a partially septated womb which kept getting missed or missed diagnosed as an arcute womb ) . Within a few weeks of meeting Mr Ogutu I was having my surgery which also included removing my endometriosis to help with my fertility and pain, I bounced back from the operation within a week and then I was pregnant with in 2 months and I now have a beautiful little girl all because of this man :-)
I saw David for IVF treatment as a solo mum. He treated me with respect and dignity all through my treatment. During my IVF treatment, David diagnosed a polyp in my womb. He was fantastic in ensuring that this was operated on the NHS yet through himself. I would definitely recommend David for his professional manner, his compassion and ability to explain everything simply and precisely.
My experience with David was faultless from beginning to end and I can not recommend him highly enough. His bedside manner and professionalism are exemplary and I felt extremely confident under his care. The team around him were also excellent, including the anaesthetist, ward and theatre staff, and his extremely proactive and kind secretary, Ruth. As a Doctor myself it is difficult to be on the other side and to place your trust in another medical professional but this process was made very easy by David and his team.
Mr David Ogutu
Thanks for your kind words. it was truly a pleasure being of assistance and I will relay your review to the rest of my team.
Great level of care was given to make sure I understood everything that was planned and the risk that can happen with any operation. David is very warming and has a lot of time for his patience nothing is an issue and will answer any worries/questions. Aftercare was great I received all the info I needed to go home with and David came round to make sure I was ok and to tell me what he had discovered.
I felt very well cared for. Mr Ogutu provided lots of opportunities for me to ask questions, explained the procedure very clearly and provided insight into what to expect during recovery so I felt very well prepared. The operation itself was delivered to success by Mr Ogutu. He went above and beyond in providing high quality personalised care. He fed back on the outcome of the surgery in a timely way both to my husband on the day, and a follow up telephone call to me the following morning. I had full confidence in his advice and skills at all times. I would recommend Mr Ogutu without hesitation.
I find Mr David Ogutu an approachable and knowledgeable Gynaecologist. His knowledge and understanding of the procedure (Hysteroscopy) and my medical needs (asherman's syndrome/ adhesion) made me feel am in good hands. My Ogutu has excellent communication skills as he's got calm temperament and good bed side manner. He explained clearly before and after procedure, that way am well informed. I felt in good hands under his care, and would recommend him.

Mr David Ogutu
I truly appreciate your feedback and kind words.
Mr Ogutu is not only a very respected specialist consultant but an excellent support to women going though infertility. Mr Ogutu speedily got me in for surgery when he noticed a cyst on my tube and cleared my Endometriosis as much as possible. After this he was very supportive in helping with the recovery. 7 months later he has given us an early pregnancy scan which he made into a very positive and happy experience. Mr Ogutu is very a very knowledgable specialist who truly cares and I couldn’t of wished for better. I would and have recommended him to all women struggling with infertility and Endometriosis.
Mr David Ogutu
Thanks a lot for your very kind review. I sincerely wish you the very best with the pregnancy and a safe delivery.
A genuinely caring and professional man. I have had in the past had some very negative experiences but at no point did I feel uncomfortable or that I did not have the consultants full attention. He was thorough but not over the top. I would recommend him to any woman who has concerns in this area. You will be well looked after.

Very professional, trustworthy, caring, knowledgeable, helpful and a very nice person too.
Personable, knowledgeable. Very happy to recommend
Mr Ogutu put me at ease instantly, and after spotting a problem during my initial tests had me booked into surgery for my procedure within weeks! I had full faith in him throughout, and found him approachable and professional as well as reassuring. I am now 6 weeks pregnant and I truly believe that we wouldn't have achieved this had it not be for Mr Ogutu. We will always be eternally grateful to him and I would recommend him to anyone. Should I need any further support for fertility in the future there is no one else I would go to.
David was excellent to deal with. He explained to us fertility options.Davidanswered our questions with good information. One of the reasons we are going to continue with Herts And Essex Fertility center for further treatment. Thanks for everything.
Mr Ogutu was very professional and patient during all my pre op consultations and he made me feel at ease. I would definitely request to see him again for any further treatment.
David explains everything at length and makes you feel really relaxed from the start. Procedure was booked and complete in a matter of weeks and all went well. We look forward to seeing you for the rest of our journey in a few weeks.
