Professor Chinoy is a great Doctor and i would recommend him to anyone. He put me completely at ease very quickly by listening carefully to my symptoms and pain history, asking questions to clarify and probe further where necessary. He was very careful to explain what the plan was for my treatment and included me in the decision process for next steps where appropriate. It’s never nice to have to go and see a medical professional but Professor Chinoy made the experience friendly, responsive and less ‘clinical’ whilst absolutely making patient care his priority

I first saw Prof Chinoy is 2016 and I can hand on heart say he is the best medical professional I've ever seen. He's honest, but not in a dismissive way at all. He is upfront, gives me all of the information I need, and makes sure I understand what he is saying to me. He writes up all notes from consultations and makes sure my DR and myself have a copy to ensure I know where I'm up to with my diagnosis and treatments. He has given up his time on numerous occasions to answer my emails regarding treatment, if I have an emergency he will always do his best to squeeze an appointment in for me and is always friendly, honest and thinks outside the box regarding symptoms that many other doctors and consultants have missed, or dismissed. I have never felt dismissed or judged, he gives the best care and won't rest until he is sure of the condition or symptom. He has organised tests that many others wouldn't authorize to be safe, and has continuously made me feel at ease and that there will be a light at the end of the treatment tunnel! I honestly don't know where I would be right now without Prof Chinoy and I'm very thankful for his continued care and treatment, as are my family. I appreciate his honesty on what could help with my conditions, he recommends things that he's seen and thought to recommend to me, and makes sure that I am getting the best treatment across the hospital and other departments. I never feel worried or scared to tell him about new symptoms or if something isn't working for me, and I never feel like he will judge me or dismiss these things I'm experiencing. I have had many answers to things I have been suffering with for years, and I feel he understands the importance of a correct diagnosis and the treatment that comes with this. I feel like he genuinely wants to help and wants my conditions as manageable as possible for me. He is a highly skilled consultant and I honestly thank my lucky stars that I am able to be treated by him and his team. If you are considering seeing him or unsure if you haven't been treated before, just go for it. He is a great asset to the NHS and private care, and I trust that he always has my best interests at heart and with everything he does.

I have been seeing Professor Chinoy over a number of years for arthritis. He is an exceptional health professional. He takes great care to listen, is very empathetic and has seen me at some of my lowest points. I have seen him as part of an innovative joint clinic with Dermatology, to ensure the care provided meets the needs of two specialisms. Professor Chinoy is very understanding and explains diagnoses and treatment options in a very easily understood manner, ensuring that the patient is at the heart of decisions about care. At my last consultation, he was more personable and took time to see me as an extra, in his already oversubscribed clinic. My sincere thank you to Professor Chinoy for helping me manage my long term health, you are an absolute credit to Salford Royal and the NHS!

Dr.Chinoy is extremely attentive, a good listener and very thorough. He made clear why he was doing what tests and provided a logical diagnosis as well as treatment that provided amazing and almost immediate relief. He is clearly absolutely on top of his subject

I was recently referred to Dr Chinoy by another Consultant. Dr Chinoy is very personable and has a caring attitude. He has a good listening ear and I don’t feel rushed during my appointments. He is very thorough in his explanations and treatment and always asks if I have any questions. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Chinoy.
