Fantastic experience - thank you so much
Mr Hannan was fantastic. Explained my issue clearly and was clear on procedure and aftercare.
I visited Dr Hannan because I had balance problems. The consultation was pleasant and professional. Dr Hannan took the time to explain to me thoroughly my medical test results. He was extremely attentive to me and my concerns and scheduled a consultation quickly. Dr Hannan put me at ease immediately by explaining in detail the cause of my balance problems and arranging for me a treatment plan should my symptoms come back. I am extremely pleased with the experience and would highly recommend him to anyone with ENT related issues.
Very personable, no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Very good at explaining what the issue was and an appropriate treatment plan. Very happy with his consultations.
Mr Hallam was extremely reassuring and helpful. I highly recommend him.
I had a really good experience being treated by Dr Hannan in relation to my long term loss of smell and taste senses . The communication with the practice ( 9 Harley Street Clinic ) was excellent , but the doctor himself has been very active in the process of setting appointments etc . This made it obvious that he is very concerned about the whole experience of the patients , not just the direct interaction with him . Although I was a bit skeptical about having our first consultation over the phone , I was very pleased with it . The doctor proved to be a great listener and asked the right questions . I knew is was in good hands . I felt his passion and his excitement at he prospect of helping a new patient to have a better quality of life . During the process he has produced and shared very accurate , detailed , yet easy to understand letters so that I can keep a good record of the process . Meeting Dr Hannan in person at the clinic was great . He is a warm , caring , optimistic , passionate and knowledgeable professional who genuinely wants to help . He beams good vibes . He set out to investigate the possible cause of my issues in depth , which has given me great peace of mind and much hope . I am extremely pleased with the experience and would highly recommend him to anyone with ENT related issues . Thank you Dr Hannan .
I have seen Doctor Hannan several times over the last few years, and always find him to be most professional and also courteous.
I had my second consultation with Dr Hannan today, two years after the first. I found him to be exceptional. He found a slot for me at very short notice which i hugely appreciated due to anxiety over an issue. As with last time, he perfectly explained the medical issue to me in layman’s terms giving me the information that I needed to make an important decision, including answering my numerous list of questions! I find Dr Hannan to be an excellent medical professional but also a caring and compassionate human.
Mr Hannan provided me with excellent care. He called me prior to our initial consultation to review my medical history, which he then recalled in detail at our subsequent face to face appointment at his Harley street clinic. Mr Hannan immediately referred me on to receive immediate surgical attention following the results of a scan he carried out, which was crucial to my overall care. Mr Hannan was attentive, personable and highly professional throughout and I cannot recommend him highly enough

I have worked closely with Alam for many years. He is ineradicably approachable to both doctors and patients alike, and the feedback I receive from my patients is excellent. He gives them the time they need and is an excellent ENT surgeon who is in a small group of colleagues I refer to.
Dr Lisa Anderson
Alam is the doctor that you would genuinely describe as one who would Go above and beyond for both his colleagues and patients. His patients absolutely adore him for his skills, warmth, confidence and knowledge. Above all his humanity. He is one in a thousand colleague and I count myself lucky to call him a friend.
