Mr Nnochiri has been very insightful whilst treating my condition and this has helped me to manage my symptoms during on-going treatment. The procedures undertaken on my behalf have been managed very well and extremely professionally. Mr Nnochiri has looked into my condition thoroughly and I have now been successfully treated for stress incontinence, with Physio therapy followed by a bladder neck injection. This has made a complete difference to the way I live my life and my confidence to start exercising again.I would recommend a visit if you are experiencing Gynaecological issues

Mr Nnochiri is extremely knowledgable, friendly and understanding. From my first appointment through to surgery and then my after care was faultless. Mr Nnochiri on the day of my operation came in to see me once I was admitted and led to my room. He explained everything he was going to do again and made sure I had no concerns. Once my operation was over and I was out of recovery then back in my room, Mr Nnochiri came to see me to give me an update on how the operation went and to ask how I was feeling. All of this made a surprising and pleasant experience despite having had major surgery. My operation and recovery went very well and I would without a doubt recommend Mr Nnochiri and his team as they are all amazing, extremely professional and friendly. Thank you

Mr. Nnochiri is a doctor who would act in his patients' best interests. Whilst some other doctors focus purely on managing pains/symptoms, he thoroughly explored the cause (or underlying issues) and consequences of the cysts and endometriosis found in my ovary. His explanation about the disease was clear as well as comprehensive which helped me to understand better about the treatment options I could choose. I had chosen a surgical option (laparoscopy) and got the cysts and endometriosis removed at BMI The London Independent Hospital in March. I was nervous as I had never had any surgery involving general anesthetic in my life, but both Mr. Nnochiri and his friendly team were very patient and supportive. The operation went well - Thanks to Mr. Nnochiri’s excellent work, recovery was faster than I originally anticipated, and I was able to return to work 7 days after surgery. This could have been a worrisome experience, but Mr. Nnochiri and his team made my journey much easier with the assurance and care I received there.

I have seen Mr Nnochiri throughout my treatment of endometriosis and other gynae issues and have always found him very helpful, reassuring and at ease as a patient. He always took my opinions into account and listened to any ongoing issues I had. He respected me as a patient and continued to support me medically whenever needed. I had two surgeries under his care and feel that this has dramatically improved my health. I appreciate everything he has done for me and couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Where should I even begin with Mr Ako Nnochiri who has been a God sent to me. I first met Mr Nnochiri in 2013 when I was having issues with my third pregnancy at 20weeks. I had previously lost two pregnancies due to incompetent cervix which was not managed properly by previous doctors. I had a cervical stitch with this pregnancy but it wasn’t done properly so I was dilating and no doctor was willing to touch me. My husband and I were getting ready to accept the third loss when Mr Nnochiri stepped in an did a rescue stitch. I delivered a baby girl at 40weeks all thanks to him. When I got pregnant for the second time, everything went smoothly because Mr Nnochiri was in charge of my care from the beginning. I now have two beautiful girls. Since my teenage years, I always had heavy and severe painful periods which impacted on my life every month. I never looked forward to my periods. I saw numerous doctors and specialist but never got any relief and they couldn’t tell me why. Went to see Mr Nnochiri who listened to my issues and ordered some test and scans. He was able to give me a diagnosis and suitable treatment. I had Adenamyosis and a hysterectomy was performed. My life completely changed, I could wear white clothes, not check my calendar before confirming event, not take pills and my attendance at work improved. My insides didn’t feel like turning inside out every month and I had a smile on my face. A year after the treatment, I was beginning to spot daily so went back to see Mr Nnochiri who once again, listened to my concerns. He ordered scans and MRI which turns out I had a damaged C-Section scar which is causing the bleeding. I had a laparoscopy and hysterectomy done to fix the issue. I had no idea the pain and bleeding I was experiencing was due to my c-section. My life now is amazing, I can sleep very well and I am not having heavy periods anymore. If I want to do something about the Adenamyosis I know who to go to but for now, the treatment I am having to manage it is working. Mr Nnochiri and his team are amazing. They show you respect and dignity and they always listen to all your problems. Everything is explained to you so you understand what is happening. I would not have two children and manageable and pain free periods without him. He is very good at what he does and I thank God for his life. From very happy patient.

I would like to take this opportunity in thanking Dr Nnochiri for what he did for me back in 2016 when I underwent a laparoscopic procedure to remove a significantly large endometrioma at Spire Roding. Dr Nnochiri went above and beyond to ensure the endometrioma was not only removed but he thoroughly explored the area to mitigate an endometrioma returning in the near future. Since the operation and two years passed, I have made a complete recovery with no further discomfort and have lived my life completely pain free.

Mr Nnochiri is a warm, kind and generous doctor. He recently diagnosed me with endometriosis, and it was the first time that I felt a doctor really listened to me and took my pain seriously. He took the time to explain the different stages in treatment, and made sure I felt like I was making choices rather than following standard steps blindly. Before and after surgery he took time to answer my (many) questions in plenty of detail, even when I was asking out of curiosity rather than need. If I need further treatment, which I hope not to, I would look to see Mr Nnochiri again, as I felt in really safe hands.

Excellent experience! I had 10 cm fibroid and it got complex as it had turned into limestone but Dr. Nichhori is the best doctor I have seen who had treated me well. My operation had last for 6 hours and Dr. did my surgery seamlessly. I would say Dr. Nichoori is one of the best doctor I have ever seen. Post surgery, he had guided me very well and now I am recovered 100%. Super happy
