“I have seen Mr Taghi on few occasion at Bupa Cromwell Hospital during the last few months. I was really impressed with his knowledge, experience and professionalism. I had 2 previous rhinoplasties before one in Turkey many years ago, and one here in London at Harley street (both done by plastic surgeons, not ENT). Have to say that I never been happy or satisfied with result both aesthetically and functionally as I am now feeling. The first surgery went all wrong and my nose function has’t improved at all. Few years after the first revision or the second nose job, my nose collapsed and I started to have a very congested nose and the breathing through the nose was really difficult. I was very skeptical about going under the knife for the third time until close friends recommended Mr Taghi as top rated surgeon in London. When I first met Mr Taghi, he was very confident with his approach bearing on his shoulders years of experience. He looks much younger though :-) photos were done and procedure was explained planned in a very careful and meticulous way. everything went fine after my 4 hours procedure. Recovery time was smooth and follow up sessions were excellent. He didn’t use any rib graft at all. Instead he used some donated graft material! I forgot what they call it! I can’t be happier after this surgery. More confident and breathing is back well again, which is the most important for going for another revision. honestly, I can’t appraise him enough. He is such a reassuring surgeon, yet a very charming doctor with just perfect personal attributes. A gentle giant I would say. I would recommend Mr Taghi unreservedly to anyone seeking ear nose and Throat related care. HE IS THE ONE YOU CAN TRUST WITH YOUR HEALTH. “

Amazing service and very knowledgable doctor. His manner and professionalism is outstanding. I can not wish more for my family as a doctor like him. Many thanks Mr Taghi for all of your care and service. My daughter is recovering well and her breathing is away much better after the last wind-pipe procedure.

I saw Mr Taghi recently, booked my slot using Doctify. Really thrilled how smooth the experience was and how kind and gentle this wonderful surgeon was. Two weeks down the line and I am feeling better with my ear pain. A bit unused to the medication but wow my life is now different. Thank you my Maverick surgeon

Mr Taghi is 5-star doctor. He is extremely professional and absolutely knows what’s doing. He did my nose job about 3 months ago. My smell and taste have comeback. I snore less :-) and most importantly I like my new nose. I luv it I cannot recommend you enough to family, friends and relatives

I met Dr Taghi last week and I have to say that I was really pleased and happy with this experience. It's miles away from other experiences I had with many doctors both in the US and here in London. He is very polite, caring and professional. He listens attentively and his attitude is unrivalled. To put simple, he is the best. BW, JJ

Wonderful surgeon. I had my surgery with him few weeks ago and I am recovering well. The whole experience was great and Mr Taghi and his team made sure that surgery proceedings was smooth and comfortable. He explained everything and was such a great support during someone’s difficult time. Just one week after the surgey and I am already feeling the difference. Breathing is better and I can’t wish better than this nose shape Best wishes Emily

DR Ali Taghi was a world away from previous experiences elsewhere. It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. When I say the doctor and all the other employees of the St Mary's Hospital made me feel that I was in safe hands and even made me smile when I left, then you can believe they are the best. I am truly grateful and thankful. I appreciated DR Ali's follow-up and willingness to answer questions also. A big thank you to DR Ali Taghi

You did a septorinoplasthy for me in July . Now when the things are calmed down and my nose is clearing up, I started to finally feel and see all the benefits of my operation. My breathing has improved significantly and I can finally breath with both nostrils. I know that it's still a long way from the final result but so far I'm so grateful for everything you did. I couldn't wish for a better surgeon! I would like to say thank you to you and your team from me and my family for everything you did. Thank you for your confident and caring approach which made the whole operation process for me a lot easier.
