Lady supporting him to prep me for the internal scan made no effort to put me at ease or make light conversation, or explain what would happen.

I had surgery by him last year, it was my best Christmas gift since I received the news at the end of November. I had laproscopic surgery by the NHS after 3 years of suffering with enormous pain I can say that I am happy again. Thank you doctor for your Professionalism!

I couldn't be happier to have found Mr Gnanachandran. He performed a laparoscopy on me in '21, was very approachable and thoughtful. He supported me through miscarriages and infertility, I am now 29 weeks pregnant. Thank you for giving us hope again and being a real professional.
