I have been struggling with my weight for a really long time. Nothing I did worked. Since seeing Dr Chahal I have lost weight and feel good. He is the first doctor I have seen who has been non-judgmental and really knows the field of weight management. He talked through all the different options and I feel happy under his expert care.

I can not thank Dr Chahal enough. I was anxious when my GP told me I had a prolactin problem but Dr Chahal really put me at ease with his calm manner. I saw him for a problem with prolactin and my pituitary which is now much better.
