    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    From the first appointment, Prof Kocchar has been great. He explains everything so well, introduced me to a very good physio and i always found getting an appt a simple process (and quick) when needed. In particular on one occasion when I was experiencing a lot of shoulder pain, I rang his office in the morning, he fitted me in that morning and I was receiving treatment that afternoon. Prof. Kocchar is also a really pleasant consultant to deal with. No nonsense, always very clear and has a great team around him. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
