“I would describe my experience with Dr. Beckles as thorough. He listened patiently while I described my symptoms and told him why I wanted to see him. My appointments were never rushed and at every stage he made sure I understood exactly what tests I would need. Upon receiving the results he made especially sure I understood the results by explaining what I should look at in the x-rays and CT scan etc. After seeing him I felt confident I had received the best attention and consideration possible.“

    He really explained all my problems very well and also discovered that my aortic valve was in very bad condition, which was fantastic as he reviewed my scan for my lungs. This led to me having a Tavi procedure which was a bonus !!!!

    Given that I was on my own and suffering from long Covid ( before it was a known thing) he gave me confidence and explained what was happening - I have since recommended him to 2 friends.

    Mike and I have worked alongside eachother at Royal Free Hospital and in private practice for many years, providing a united approach to conditions that traverse the upper and lower airway, particularly chronic cough. As such, Mike is naturally one of my go-to-guys for any ENT patient of mine that needs an expert respiratory opinion ... and he always delivers!
