Dr Hughes was fantastic. He has a wonderful manner and I felt very confident in his capable care. The hospital is beautiful and so well run. This has been one of the most comfortable medical experiences in recent years. Several ENT's were recommended to me by my insurance. I went with Dr Hughes based on his website and feel like I really lucked out. I wish every medical appointment was as comfortable and easy as the ones which I had with Dr Hughes.

I was treated by Dr Hughes in December, with a hemithyroidectomy for papillary thyroid cancer. I was extremely happy with the way my condition was handled- he didn't rush into over-treating me, and he was always very patient and diligent when explaining things to me.

I was very satisfied with my experience with Mr Hughes. He is an extremely professional specialist, kind and caring (for example he called me the same evening to tell me about the abnormal blood test results). He carried out a thorough examination and guided me in the right direction. I am very grateful to Mr Hughes and his helpful team who organised my appointment very quickly, recognising that it was emergency situation. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

I and my wife consulted Dr Hughes at the Spire Thames Valley hospital at Wexham. Dr Hughes gathered the relevant information about my wife's concern about a lump on her throat thoroughly, referred to the notes from my GP and read the information provided by the GP and previous test very carefully. Within minutes Dr Hughes was very well aware of the topic and offered the nasal endoscopy there and then and was able to look inside the neck so get a clearer view of the situation. We both came out of the consultation meeting very satisfied and discussed how good and thorough Dr Hughes has been. Biggest achievement of this meeting was the disappearance of anxiety my wife had about her painful neck. She is now much more comfortable knowing that there is nothing nasty going on inside the neck. We are very grateful to Dr Hughes. We will definitely recommend Dr Hughes to our friends and families if they needed any ENT related issues looked at by a extremely professional specialist.

No one recommended Mr Hughes to me and when needed a ENT surgeon to take a look at my recurring tonsillitis , just searched on the net and my decision to choose Mr Hughes was totally reliant on the reviews I saw about him and glad I chose him , he has been exceptional from day one and was very open and straight forward about the procedure He was very accommodating and allowed me to get my tonsillectomy done within the time window that I needed to be done even with his busy schedule with in a moths time since my first consultation . The surgery itself was made as easy as possible and the aftercare I received from him and the team was second to none. He is a great and caring ENT consultant and would recommend him without any hesitation.

I had a great experience with Mr Hughes. The operation went very well and I was taken good care of before and after the procedure, by Mr Hughes and his colleagues. My only criticism would be I would have liked it if a colleague of his would have called a few days after the operation as I was confused and slightly concerned about a couple of the side affects I had. Apart from that very professional and easy to talk to and I would definitely recommend him in the future to other patients.

Mr Jonathan Hughes

Many thanks for your feedback. I'm delighted the surgery went well. I am always looking how to improve my care, to meet 100% of my patients expectations. Your suggestion is a good idea!
