    Explanation (4/5)
    Mr Kucheria dealt with my kidney stone problem very efficiently and with the minimum offer effects / pain. Additionally, and very importantly, he provided me with verbal and written information about my condition including what short term effects I might encounter. On a few of occasions, I needed to call with an urgent question / problem. I received a reasonably timely response (not always speaking to him directly though). In one of these issues (temporary incontinence), it might have been good to know in advance that I might be faced with this.

    Absolutely first rate. Informative, calm, patient, professional and made my horrible kidney stone experience as bearable as he could. Charming, humorous when appropriate. Explained everything to me and advised me on preventive methods for the future. Would recommend to anyone. Dealt with my pain, nerves, crazy humour and constant questions with professionalism, empathy and care. Completely faultless. Thank you Mr Kucheria.

    I underwent treatment for kidney stones in July 2017 and was under the care of Dr Raj Kucheria. The kidney stone experience was not pleasant but I was lucky to have such an excellent Dr in Mr Kucheria who was professional and highly efficient throughout, who took his time to explain all the procedures that were necessary and nothing was an issue for him.

    Very happy Mr Kucheria. Honest, accurate information coupled with excellent after care and access to speak to him at all times no matter how trivial the question. Something that other Consultants are hesitant to do.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I recently had several procedures to remove a large kidney stone and was fortunate enough to be under the care of Mr Kucheria. From the first meeting through to the final operation, he was superb. He explained the entire process in a straight forward way and put me at ease. I was always confident that I was in safe hands and felt reassured through the whole experience. Thanks Mr Kucheria for your expertise and for solving my long standing abdominal pains.
