He has seen our daughter since she was just a few weeks old to nearly 4 years old. Mr Jonas has made himself available to us all along the way, especially leading upto and after two surgical proceedures. We never experienced any apprehension with Mr Jonas - it was reassuring to have access to such a senior level of advice and expertise. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

We have had only wonderful experiences with Dr Jonas. In the most recent one he diagnosed our younger son with enlarged tonsils and adenoids which after their professional partial remover have led to a much happier and healthier little boy who sleeps better, eats better/ faster and is sick much less. During one of the follow up visits dr Jonas discovered glue ear which luckily on the next visit had healed with our son’s hearing restored. Each visit is always efficient, fast and makes us feel well cared for. Our sons actually look forward to them!

Dr. Jonas is in the care of my two year old son who has had speech delay and ear infections. I am not from this country and had zero idea of how to get professional care at a reasonable time. Dr. Jonas referred my son to a highly respected audiologist, paediatric neurologist and paediatric developmental doctor who I saw within weeks to evaluate my toddlers development. Jonas also guided me the proper website to find a local speech therapist that we are currently using and finding major improvements in my sons speech. Jonas also inserted grommets at Portland hospital and found that both my sons ears were full of fluid. Lastly, I would recommend doctor Jonas to anyone with ENT issues.

Our 18 month old son had loud/stridor breathing/difficulty breathing particularly when he had a bug. The paediatric team at our local NHS hospital suggested referral to a paediatric ENT and we found Mr Jonas after an internet search. This was at the Portland Hospital in London. We are absolutely delighted with Mr Jonas' consultations and treatment and we absolutely recommend him.

Mr Jonas is an outstanding ENT consultant who has provided exceptional care to our 7 year old son. Since birth, our son suffered badly with ear infections and glue ear. We met Mr Jonas 2 years ago when our son’s ear infections became unmanageable with antibiotics resulting in febrile convulsions. Since then our little boy has had the very best care & his operation in January 2018 (grommets inserted in both ears and adenoids removed) was a huge success and transformed our son’s life. As parents we couldn’t be more grateful.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Nico Jonas on 25th September 2019. I was immediately made to feel very comfortable. Mr Jonas asked me lots of questions regarding my health issues, examined me thoroughly and carried out procedure to look inside my nose and throat via a camera. On completion he explained in thourough detail the outcome of the process. Mr Jonas also explained previous consultants letters to me in lay mans terms, which was very much appreciated. I received a clinic letter discussing all my diagnosis very well explained. Mr Jonas suggested the use of nasal sprays which I will purchase today. My overall experience was extremely good.
