    His calm composure immediately but my mind at rest. His explanation of the procedure to be completed was excellent and after suffering with Nasal polyps for 3 years, after their removal I can again breath, smell and taste my food. I do not hesitate in recommending his services to any one else. Thank you :)

    Overall Experience (5/5)
    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    I saw Mr Dhanasekar due to suffering from breathing difficulties as a result of nasal trauma following a road traffic accident. Not only was my breathing affected but my nose was bent to the right so there was physical deformity as well as functional. Mr Dhanasekar listened to my concerns and carried out examinations on my nose and quickly diagnosed that a septorhinoplasty was required to rectify my breathing difficulties. Mr Dhanasekar was absolutely amazing and I am so happy! My septum has been structurally repaired inside and my nose has been straightened and is no longer bent on the outside. After years of struggling to breath properly, countless sleepless nights and low confidence, I finally have a fully functional nose which I can breath out of and looks amazing! I cannot thank Mr Dhanasekar enough as he has helped change my life.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I had suffered tremendous pain and swelling in my neck for two months and seen many Doctors and taken five courses of strong antibiotics but it was Mr Ganapathy Dhanasekar who on seeing me at his clinic took positive and correct action and referred me to Grimsby Hospital for a operation to be performed. This released the pressure and the pain eased. Very nice bedside manner. Easy to talk to and explains things in a simple way.

    Explanation (5/5)
    My experience was really excellent. I Found Dr Dhanasekar to be very pleasant and he explained clearly everything that he was going to do when he carried out the procedure. However, I do feel the waiting time to be given the results could be improved upon as the time delay in finding out the results did cause both myself and my family a great deal of anxiety whilst waiting for the outcome.

    Mr Dhanasekar has done a brilliant procedure on my nose. I had suffered with nosebleeds and other issues with infections, Mr Dhanasekar organise for me to have CT scan on my sinuses which showed a large mass on my left side. Within weeks I had been operated on and breathing so much better. Mr Danasekar was professional and understanding throughout- thank you !
