This doctor listened to be from the beginning and explained the surgery offers to me in great detail. My after care while in hospital was great. Although the communication to my family while I was in recovery was not great they could not tell my husband where I was and what was going on to the point it caused great upset to my family and they were extremely concerned. One lady on the desk refused to help my husband find me and even threatened to have him removed by security.
Mr Chaudhary has provided me with excellent treatment from my first consultation all the way through surgery to post operative care. He was extremely attentive to all I had to say and delivered on everything he committed to. My only suggestions for improvement would be for staff in Mr Chaudhary's office to call back following telephone conversations. I had several discussions with 2 different staff members concerning my referral from the Saxon Clinic in Milton Keynes throughout January and early February and had to keep calling back on a weekly cycle for an update. Whilst I accept that the referral failure could have been the failing of Saxon Clinic, Mr Chaudhary's staff had committed to chasing up the Saxon Clinic for information and to getting back to me - this did not happen. Secondly, the MRI transfer took 7 weeks from leaving the Saxon Clinic on 9th January until 27th February for Mr Chaudhary to have sight of it and decide that immediate surgery would be necessary [the provisional date of 23rd March was brought forward to 3rd March]. Improved IT collaboration would benefit.
Dr Chaudhury gave a full explanation on what to expect before the surgery and during the recovery period. Very professional but caring, listens to his patients. I am very happy to be under the care of Dr Chaudhury.
My name isRichard Prendiville and mr Chaudhary operated on my spine , removing the top section and replacing it with titanium. Before the operation I was in a lot of pain and losing sensation in my hands. The operation took over six hours but was a complete success and I feel so good with regards to being pain free and can do so much more now , even going to the gym
