“Firstly let me begin by saying that if you come to see Mr Chitale you will be visiting a highly experienced, world class, caring and humble individual. His manner is impeccable, he is friendly whilst exceptionally professional, everything you wish to find in the character of a medical professional. My doctor had referred me after concerns about my prostate and wanted to rule out prostate cancer. Whilst my doctor meant well, she looked really scared and scared me. Mr Chitale changed that by putting everything that had happened to me up to this point into context, clearly explaining everything with buckets of reassurance. Over the next few months of my journey I actually looked forward to going to see him as he always left me feeling my health was safe in his hands. Upon my diagnosis (which wasn't prostate cancer) he gave me options for my treatment and was able to make things that could have seemed overwhelming feel just part of the course and entirely normal. After having been so worried I thank God I met this gentleman. I cannot recommend him highly enough. “

    Hydrocele Testicular torsion
    It was a real pleasure to see Mr Chitale about my 15 year old son who had a significant hydrocele and intermittent testicular torsion. He was very professional and compassionate and ensured that my son felt comfortable and calm, explaining the procedure in detail with clarity and using diagrams. It was extremely easy to contact him via calls and messages which he quickly responded to. After the procedure my son was discharged from hospital at 1.30 am, it was really lovely to receive a message from Mr. Chitale at 2 am enquiring about how my son was doing and if we had arrived home safely. Mr. Chitale goes above and beyond all expectations and is an outstanding doctor, an excellent consultant, a true expert in his field and I highly recommend him. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for my son, making an otherwise stressful and difficult situation such a pleasant experience.

    I am writing this with a FULL heart. Mr Chitale is a professional like no other. He looked after my mother who had kidney stones and his expertise and care was exemplary. I also had to see him myself for what I believed was a bladder problem. I was immediately reassured and all was well. Only recently my son had a hernia surgery during Covid and Mr Chitale yet again performed the surgery with skill making the experience very easy. I’m a hypochondriac and have met with many medical people in my life and there is no question that Mr Chitale is outstanding in his field and he goes above and beyond what is required. If I could give him 100 stars 🌟 I would. An honour to know him and a massive reassurance knowing that even if I needed advice re any other issue he would advise and direct me to the right people. God Bless This Man.
