    Dr Arora diagnosed our little girl at age 3 with a hearing impediment. His advice and care has changed our lives for the better. Following a double operation, our daughter made a quick recovery and can finally live an enhanced and joyful life. We are forever indebted to Dr Arora and his expertise. His kind and gentle mannerism was perfect for our child and us during a difficult and delicate time, and we will not hesitate to continue recommending him to anyone in need of an ENT doctor.

    Mr Arora is 100% the best doctor and surgeon I have ever had. From the very first moment I met him he made me feel completely at ease and in good hands. His empathy, smiles and warm attitude made my whole experience in his care such a positive one. He researched my issue and found the best solution to my problem, I had surgery with him and he did an absolutely fantastic job. The procedure was minimally invasive, exactly what I was hoping for. I've experienced zero pain throughout the recovery process and came out at the other end as new. I honestly cannot praise Mr Arora enough, if you are looking for an excellent ENT you have found him. His competence and care are absolutely fantastic and I have no doubt recommending him to anyone.

    I felt I was in highly competent hands. Mr Arora was caring, patient, and detailed in his questioning and examination. During the scan (not the most pleasant experience) he kept me engaged and informed and was clear and reassuring in his explanation. A credit to the medical profession.

    Dr Arora has been excellent every step of the way. He was knowledgeable, personable, understood my anxiety as a pacient and always took the time to explain the treatment to me. Multiple locations across London were available and the facilities were state of the art. Dr Arora's PA team were also very good and communication was timely and effortless on my prefered channel. All of this suited my busy lifestyle perfectly and made life very easy. Overall, after being diagnosed and operated by Dr Arora my condition improved drastically and it put an end to a year-long previous investigation seemingly headed nowhere. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Arora once more and strongly recommend him to anyone.

    Mr Arora, is professional, understanding and gave me his full attention. I had an ear condition which had caused me severe problems for weeks. Mr Arora gave me a thorough investigation, and clearly explained my condition. His recommendation for ear excercises to support my recovery while having treatment made all the difference.

    From the moment I first met Dr Arora I felt at ease even though it was such a difficult time. I felt that everything was explained to me thoroughly and I was able to ask questions without feeling afraid and discuss things that I'd already researched myself. Faith in the care you receive is hugely important with cancer and I fully trusted that I was in safe hands with Dr Arora and all his team. I cannot thank him enough for the care I was given.

    Asit spent his final year of formal ENT training under my care, before moving on to several international Robotic Head & Neck Fellowships, and I knew then he would go far. It is thus no surprise that he is now at the vanguard of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) in the UK, running a supraspecialist and tertiary practice in both in the NHS and privately. And while Asit of course has robotic surgical skills, there is nothing 'robotic' about his manner ... he reamins ever charming, kind and caring.
