A wholly positive experience with Professor Chinegwundoh. I was referred to him by my GP and within a week he had completed the battery of tests/procedures which I needed. He was a pleasure to deal with, explaining clearly what was needed and why and taking the time to answer my questions. He was very down-to-earth and intelligent, and I had complete confidence that I would receive the highest quality care from him. Once the results of my tests came back, he explained them clearly and took the time to ensure that I did not have any residual concerns. I very much appreciated his good humored professionalism during what was an anxious period.

Professor Chinegwundoh was extremely attentive in the consultations, explaining clearly the risks, expected outcome and recovery times of the surgical procedure. I felt at ease throughout and was not rushed, allowing me the opportunity to ask any questions I had without feeling uncomfortable. His medical secretary, Kim Bullock, has also been supportive by answering any questions or referring them onto the Professor if required. In our final consultation he displayed a genuine interest in my long-term recovery which I appreciate. I am very happy with the outcome of the surgery and the level of excellence of Professor Chinegwundoh demonstrated throughout his care in my case. I would definitely recommend him.

An absolutely superb urologist, in fact the best medic I’ve ever come across: hugely experienced obviously; thoughtful, thorough and sensible advice; a truly wonderful manner, giving the impression he has as much time as I needed; and on two separate occasions, Prof Chinegwundoh went way above and beyond what could have reasonably been expected of him. Probably the easiest recommendation I’ve ever made.

Following surgery, an urology problem was identified and I was refereed to Professor Frank Chinegwundoh. On my first visit I was given all the appropriate information and as a result it was identified a number of tests were needed. these were efficiently carried out at the London BMI hospital and I had a follow up appointment with Professor Frank Chinegwundoh where he once again talked me through all of the results of the tests and provided me with expert information. my entire experience was highly satisfactory and I would thoroughly recommend Professor Frank Chinegwundoh to anyone with a specific urology issue. On a personal level, Professor Frank Chinegwundoh was personable and engaging.

From the first consultation with Professor Chinegwundoh, I new that I was in the hands of a consummate professional. He immediately puts you at ease, communicates clearly at every stage of investigations/treatment just what is being done, why and any potential risks or side effects of it. A true gentleman in every sense of the word. Have no hesitation in consulting with him - you will be in very safe hands!
