The care does not stop once you leave the hospital as he always checked in to make sure I was ok and I was able to contact him with any queries once at home. I would highly recommend him, and whilst I hope not to have to see him again, if I do, I will do so knowing I am in the best hands.

Dr Chitale is wonderful. Before this experience I had never really had to interact with doctors personally and had a deep seated and irrational fear of most medical professionals. My experience with him has calmed my fear somewhat and he is exceptionally patient with a very anxious patient. He explains everything thoroughly, providing both lifestyle and medical help for conditions. I couldn't recommend him enough based on my experience.

My experience with Mr Chitale was perfect on every score on all fronts. His explanation of a condition, his ability to present clear options and define a course of action in a way that is simultaneously reassuring and also definitive is very unique. His bedside manner is professional, calm and instills calmness in you in turn through his command of his speciality and overall confidence. It was a pleasure to be treated by him and, indeed, a great reassurance too in the recovery phase. He goes above and beyond on all counts and this flows into the speed of recovery itself, in the knowledge that you could not have been treated better and thus hope to recover any faster. I cannot commend Mr Chitale strongly enough.

I saw Mr Chitale at The Princess Grace urgent care centre for emergency treatment for pain and swelling in my scrotum. I was seen by Mr Chitale within 30 minutes of admission and he explained what he thought the problem was, how I was to be treated and that I should be admitted immediately. The whole process was attentive, efficient and whilst not pleasant I could not have had better care. I spent three days in hospital to treat the infection and was visited regularly by Mr Chitale to see how I was doing and to communicate progress. Whilst at the Princess Grace it was recommended that I have follow up surgery for hydrocele correction which was recently carried out at the London Clinic. Again I couldn't have had better care and the surgery carried out by Mr Chitale was relatively painless and very successful. 4 weeks later I have healed completely with no issues and I am extremely satisfied with the result. Apart from Mr Chitale's undoubted skill as a surgeon he also has an excellent bedside manner and his follow up care goes above and beyond what I would have expected, I can't recommend him highly enough.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Chitale during my consultation with regards to Male Infertilty and under his care during my subsequent surgery. My partner and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years; after suffering four IVF failures due to very poor sperm on all factors (OAT). I had a consultation with my local Urologist before our first IVF and was told that there was nothing that could be done to improve my sperm, so I never explored any further options. After the forth IVF failure, I decided to research hard online before looking for a possible sperm donor. I found out that Varicocele in the scrotum caused severe overheating of the testes and was the most common cause of reversible infertility in males; I suspected that I was suffering with this all along. I was looking for a highly qualified and experienced Urologist, who has an interest in Male Infertility with the specific expertise in Varicocele repair. I was very happy when I found Mr Chitale online, and surprised how quick and easy it was to set up our first meeting with my partner and I. Mr Chitale is a very nice and personable man, but what is most impressive is his knowledge and the ability to relay the information, including facts and figures in a way which is very easy to understand. Mr Chitale performed a thorough examination and confirmed that I had a Grade 2/3 Varicocele. Mr Chitale explained why surgery to correct, would most likely lead to sperm parameters improvements. I was lucky enough to have the surgery performed within a couple of weeks, with direct contact throughout the lead up to the surgery including the instructions confirmed the day before. The surgery was a huge success as my sperm parameters have improved beyond belief, from a total sperm count of 4.1 million to 27.8 million of higher quality and still improving with the ultimate goal being a spontaneous pregnancy. If you have any male infertility concerns, please do not hesitate and get checked out by an appropriate Urologist often these issues may be resolved or at least helped considerably. I would highly recommend Mr Chitale as an outstanding Surgeon.

Mr Chitale is a tremendous specialist - both in the sheer depth of his insights and knowledge in his field and in the way he delivers those insights and cares for his patients - which he does with great patience and compassion and professionalism. In addition Mr Chitale goes "above and beyond" to keep a patient informed about their condition and monitors their progress in a way that provides the patient with a reassurance that in a moment of crisis or concern there is a swift and decisive outlet for that anxiety to be professionally managed against the relevant data and to arrive at a diagnosis after a careful and proper process bringing an extra level of confidence into the treatment plan that has been prescribed

After consulting several other urological surgeons, Mr Chitale has certainly been a breath of fresh air! Unlike many others you will consult, Mr Chitale is not motivated by self-interest. After being recommended to have a procedure carried out by another urological surgeon, I consulted Mr Chitale for a second opinion. He was honest enough to give me an accurate and complete picture of what I could expect from having the procedure done and in the end he did not push me to do so. So, unlike many other physicians, Mr Chitale keeps professionalism at the top of his agenda and as a result lives up to his reputation 100%. I cannot recommend Mr Chitale more highly and you should not hesitate to get in touch with him for all your urological needs!!!
