“Our 2.5 year old son had constantly blocked nose, coughs, chest infection and ear infection. He was a very noisy sleeper, snoring like an old man. As parents we were worried he was not getting enough sleep as he was constantly waking up. That’s why we were looking for an ENT specialist, we found Dr. Prince Modayil. He examined him and suggested to remove his tonsils and adenoids and inserted grommets. We trusted his judgement and went through with the operation. Dr. Modayil patiently answered all our silly questions. He was so nice, kind and caring. The recovery period was amazingly fast, our son was literally jumping on the bed after 5 hours of the surgery. He didn’t even once complain of any pain. It’s now 2nd week after the surgery, the results are amazing, he is now sleeping like an angel, we get closer to hear him breath during his sleep, he is very silent now. His speech improved drastically. He is a happier child now thanks to Dr. Modayil. I highly recommend Dr. Modayil to anyone looking for an ENT specialist.“

On our initial visit to Mr Modayil we found him to be thorough in providing the correct diagnosis. He also laid out next steps in a clear and concise manner which led to us purchasing an ‘ear balloon’ to help reduce our son’s glue ear ahead of a second consultation to determine the need for any surgery

Mr Modayil was literally a ‘breath of fresh air’ for my daughter. Once we were referred to him, I had a sense that the on going medical problem (inhalation of foreign body nearly 4 months prior) was being taken seriously. In the pre-op consultation, Mr Modayil explained clearly plan for the procedure and the challenges that could be associated and what the alternatives might be. Post op, as soon as my daughter was semi-lucid, one of her first words that she exclaimed was, “I can breath!” . This was an incredible moment. Following the procedure, which was all in all 4 hours long, Mr Modayil came out to explain the positive outcome and saw us again thereafter to check all was well. I am very impressed with the professionalism and expertise demonstrated by Mr Modayil, as well as his approachable manner. You know you are in good hands. In addition, to be honest, Mr Modayil has been incredibly humble about his efforts in the theatre. I learned from a colleague of his post-op just how determined and hard working he was to remedy the problem in order to prevent the need for more invasive surgery. He just didn’t give up on a case that was challenging; a heavy and razor sharp foreign body lodged in the lung for around 4 months.

After years of seeing numerous doctors and being told I had chronic allergies or rhinitis Dr Modayil was the only person who correctly diagnosed me with an issue with my septum. From my first consultation he knew exactly what the issue was and was clear and concise with what could be done to clear issues that had been affecting me for over 10 years. I have now had corrective surgery and am finally able to breathe again and the difference it has made is life changing. I am very grateful for the fast and professional service from Dr Modayil and all the team at the Cromwell Hospital and would highly recommend him for ENT issues. I cannot thank you all enough.

Approximately two weeks ago, I had a full tonsillectomy performed (at the age of 27) following repeated bouts of tonsillitis and tonsil stones. Mr Modayil has such a calm, reassuring disposition which really helped to put my mind at ease. All my questions were answered and options explained and I was really well prepared about what I should and shouldn't be doing post surgery. I trusted him entirely and am so happy with how things have turned out. Also, I needed to be urgently scheduled ahead of a forthcoming open water swimming expedition. Selina (Mr Modayil's secretary) helped very much in that respect so a massive thank you again.

We had an appointment with Dr Modayil for our daughter who had been diagnosed with glue ear and as a result her hearing was badly impaired. After our first appointment, Dr Modayil listened to our concerns about wanting to have the procedure of grommets and removal of her adenoids done as soon as possible. He made sure this happened for us within two days of our first appointment which we are so thankful for. Dr Modayil and all his colleagues were amazing and made the whole stressful process so much easier. We can’t recormmend Dr Modayil and his team enough. Thank you for all of your amazing work.

I recently required treatment for my daughter and was fortunate enough to be referred to Mr Prince Modayil. In a very short space time Mr. Modayil arranged an appointment and then subsequent treatment, to fit grommets and remove my daughters adenoids. The procedure was a complete success and I have noticed a significant improvement in my daughters hearing and sleep pattern. Our first appointment, through to treatment and subsequent follow up, has been handled in a very professional and caring manner by Mr. Modayil. I would highly recommend him (and have already done so) to anyone else requiring similar treatment and cannot thank him enough for helping my daughter.

We saw Mr. Modayil for my aged mother who was complaining or ear ache and had been told by the A&E that there was a foreign object in her ear. Mr. Modayil was very reassuring and confident while dealing with her which put her at ease that she was in good hands. He went on to explain to her through all his examinations as to what he was doing and what to expect. He was very through and gentle in his examination which meant a lot to my mom. Having diagnosed the reason for the pain he explained the cause of the pain and the after care expected. We had some insurance forms to fill after the appointment which he and his team helped with very promptly. Mr. Modayil came across as very diligent and capable consultant.
