“Mr Jay had a fantastic bedside manner and immediately put me at ease. He then proceeded to examine me thoroughly and professionally (unlike the doctor I saw previously about the matter). Further he had to perform a rather uncomfortable procedure which he walked me through very patiently and took the unpleasantness out of the process. He then provided me with a very accurate summation of my problems, and a diagnosis that I am confident was accurate. My problem has since resolved and I was generally extremely reassured by him and left feeling satisfied.“

    Dr. Ahmed was absolutely amazing. After presenting with significant hearing loss and needing pretty immediate treatment, he came in on his day off to administer a procedure. He was willing to see me and take his time to explain things well to me. I cannot recommend him enough. I really appreciated all that he did to help me.

    "I have known Jay since his training days through our North Thames region, and I knew then that he'd go far. It is thus no surprise that he was snapped up to join Barts Health as a Consultant Head & Neck Surgeon. Jay now delivers a high-volume practice and tertiary-level expertise, and each patient always receives a bespoke and individualised treatment plan. And I can say that my onward tertiary referrals have immensely benefited from Jay's high quailty care."

    "Mr Ahmed has been a colleague of mine for many years, who I regularly refer patients to and highly recommend. He is an excellent, well rounded ENT surgeon, with patients' best interests at heart and very good communication skills. He has a subspecialist interest in Head & Neck conditions, and offers new evidence based robotic surgical techniques for snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea."

    "Mr Ahmed is kind and skilled ENT/Head and neck surgeon. He is great at explaining medical jargon to patients in straight forward language. He has an incredible eye for detail and puts 100% effort into ensuring patients are well looked after. He is able to look after most ear, nose and throat conditions but has subspecialist training in head and neck cancer, including thyroid and voice problems. He is one of the few surgeons who is able to perform robotic oral surgery and has used this to treat patients with obstructive sleep apnoea with some patients no longer requiring a CPAP machine afterwards. Mr Ahmed is a trusted colleague and a leader in the medical field whose kind considerate bedside manner are matched by his fantastic surgical skills. I do recommend him to friends and family regularly. "
