"Mr Zelhof is the first urologist (and gynecologist) in 11 years who has actually listened to me and believed my symptoms - thank you! Mr Zelhof explored every avenue to try and treat this. Despite mostly negative urine samples Mr Zelhof felt I do have a possible chronic/embedded UTI which is often negatives in samples. I have recently seen a urogynecologist at the Chronic UTI Clinic on Harley street who agrees with Mr Zelhof and has devised a treatment plan. Mr Zelhof please continue to do your great work and listen to women like me! Thank you for all your help! Kind regards Kerrie Harris Also Mr Zelhofs secretary Zena has also been excellent with quick to communicate and book appointments and send clinic letters - thank you! "
