Having struggled with lengthy turnaround times with my GP, for example a 3.5 week turnaround time on an x ray, i decided to got to Dr Chinegwundoh at short notice. I had by this time been unwell for almost three months and a cough which was so violent it was pulling muscles in my back Immediately the Doctor took control, gave me an Xray, results in 10 minutes, a CT scan and then a broncoscopy With a relaxed and confident manner he diagnosed me inside two weeks, and found i had Necrotising Pneumonia caused by Pseudomonas Aeruginosa I cannot describe how grateful I am to the Doctor for sorting this, as the GP choice was to leave me and X Ray me gain in 8 weeks The manner and speed in which I was treated was exemplary and I always felt very cared for and safe in his care I could not be more grateful to Dr Chinewundoh John
