“I am extremely happy with the service I was provided, I was seen very quickly and Mr Patel was courteous and listened to what my symptoms were. I was then taken to a treatment room, which was clean and tidy, and had both my ears examined where the blockage was quickly discovered in my right ear and treated right away with suction. It was pain free and very quick. My ears now feel clear and unblocked , and Mr Patel quickly arranged a follow up hearing test. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Patel.“

Mr Patel was very kind and listened to my problem. We found that there is an underlying problem which will be investigated but as I had felt slightly better prior to the appointment it was left that I would refer back if problem became worse again. I was worried I was wasting his time but he assured me I wasn't!! So I know I can return to see him if I need to and that is very reassuring.

I am to Mr Patel for giving me back a pain-free existence. It's hard to believe and also easy to forget the constant pressure and pain, when suddenly it is lifted and no more. It's also easy to take that wonderful normality for granted, which is why I am writing to acknowledge the tremendous gift he has given me. When I first met Mr Patel, I was in a very bad way emotionally and physically. In July 2015, I had a spontaneous cerebral spinal fluid leak and following 6 months of 2 hours upright time a day as well as being unable to leave the house except for medical procedures; my leak was fixed after the 3rd high volume blood patch. I was so grateful to be upright again however the pain and high pressure in my head continued. Bemused, I went to see another surgeon, who suggested that the sphenoid sinus mucocele should be removed as it was likely the source of these in symptoms. In May 2016, I underwent a procedure, which was proclaimed a success and yet, the pain and pressure continued. The recovery took 6 weeks and I continued to be depressed and believing that I would need to live like this forever. Some of the symptoms were: constant pain/pressure behind my eyes although ramping up in periods where it would become debilitating (pain killers only helped a certain amount - although I was living on them to survive and work); tinnitus and bad hearing in both ears; white lightening pain caused by high pressure in my head if I sneezed, coughed or strained and general feelings of dispair that would not go away. I was terrified that the high pressure would cause another leak as these symptoms were what I experienced leading up to the first leak. My fear was constant as I couldn't go back to lying down every day of my life. When I saw Mr Patel for the first time in September 2016, I was absolutely horrified that the mucocele was still completely intact despite the previous procedure by the previous surgeon. This was my worst nightmare because absolutely nothing had changed (except she made my nose crooked) despite an invasive surgery and prolonged recovery. I felt so betrayed and reluctant to try again. Mr Patel was so incredibly honest about my chances of success and despite the fear, I felt like I was in extremely capable hands. I also felt validated that I wasn't going crazy and the previous surgeon had not even got near the mucocele - let alone removing it. It helped just to know that someone understood and validated my assumption that morning had been done (except the crooked nose). Fate then intervened and I started a new job which meant postponing the surgery. In the interim, I was living on the highest dose of painkillers that my doctor would give me and still struggling to function normally. It was unbearable. The surgery was scheduled in August 2017 and true to his word, Mr Patel took pictures of his progress throughout and literally showed me how he removed the cyst - reassuring all of my worst fears of an unsuccessful procedure. Recovery was tough due to me contracting a bad infection - actually the infection was way worse than the procedure. Mr Patel is an ace surgeon with a light touch.... I would trust him to do any delicate work inside my head. In January 2018, I started to feel normal again although I didn't want to believe it until I was sure. about 2 weeks ago and he confirmed what I had been feeling for the last couple of months - that I was completely healed and he managed to remove the entire sphenoid mucocele that had been degrading my quality of life for so long. I honestly don't know what would have happened without his miraculous intervention and I don't think I can ever thank him enough. He was kind, patient and brilliant to me in a very dark time in my life and he brought back the light to my life. I am so grateful for surgeons like Mr Patel, who are so skilled, honest and forthright - I am sure I am only one of many more people he has helped. I just wanted to echo that one procedure to mr Patel has meant a whole new quality of life for me and that's been truly life-changing. If you have any ENT surgeon requirements - I cannot recommend Mr Patel highly enough.

From the the very first time my family and I met Mr Patel until our follow up after my sons surgical procedure, we could not fault the care we received. Not only was he kind and compassionate, he was friendly and engaged well with my 3 and a half year old son. He listened to all of our concerns and made us all feel comfortable. He reassured us through what we thought would be a stressful time. Mr Patel was not only empathetic to my sons symptoms but extremely professional and patient making us feel in control and informed in our decision making. My family and would highly recommend Mr Patel and if needed we would see him again.

The overall experience was good. The doctor explained everything very clearly and was very caring and patient. The only thing to point out is that there were kids to be operated on before me and I had to wait longer than I expected given that I was asked to be at the hospital relatively early. Apart from that the doctor was very understanding and was very attentive to my needs.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Patel. He demonstrated great empathy and gave me practical advice on how to manage an unpleasant ongoing sinus infection that had not improved over many months. He clearly explained the tests he would give me and what they would uncover. He gave me a routine utilising medication and other techniques which has resulted in a continued improvement since my first visit.

Mr Patel is at the forefront of his field in otology (Ear Surgery) and Skull base surgery. He has excellent communication skills and his technical surgical skills are second to none. Any patient choosing to see Mr Patel for an ear problem can be safe in the knowledge that they are seeing the very best in the field. I would have no concerns recommending Mr Patel to provide expert advice and treatment to any patient presenting with a problem affecting their ears.
