“I visited Mr Hannan at the BMI Hendon Hospital a couple of months ago regarding vertigo and neck pain. His friendly yet professional manner put my mind at ease after the first couple of minutes of our consultation and I felt I was in good hands. Mr Hannan is a dedicated, approachable and compassionate doctor who goes above and beyond, and work tirelessly towards his patients’ health. He took time explaining my condition and the diagnosis in fine details in a very reassuring way making sure I understood everything. His personal and professional approach is like a breath of fresh air. I wouldn’t hesitate to choose him again. “

About

Mr Hannan is an expert ENT physician and surgeon. He qualified from King’s College London, where he received the Negus-Cawthorne Prize in Otorhinolaryngology and the national undergraduate prize of the British Association of Otorhinolaryngologists. He then went on to officially pursue postgraduate training in Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. In 2009, after completing his higher surgical training, Mr Hannan was appointed to the consultant staff at the prestigious Royal National Throat, Nose & Ear Hospital, considered as an international centre of excellence for its treatment of all ENT conditions. He now provides a full elective and emergency ENT service for both adults and children, and specialises in fields of Rhinology and Facial Plastic Surgery. With his NHS base firmly established in North Central and North West London, Mr Hannan seeks to replicate his first class ENT service for patients in the private sector.       

By many of his patients and colleagues, Mr Hannan is considered to be a modern and progressive consultant. He regularly receives excellent feedback on his exceptional listening skills and refined technical ability, and his services come highly recommended.

Very impressed with Dr Hannan’s service. Found him to be very professional. He listened carefully to my symptoms and history. He was then able to talk me through in laypersons terms the science of what was likely happening and why. He found the right balance between giving me a scientific diagnosis/explanation and being reassuring (especially over the many, overwhelming version of self diagnosis one does on the internet!) Was very patient and answered my various questions I had at the end of the call. Would 100% recommend

Dr Hannan is always very professional but also friendly. He helped me with a small perforation from previous surgery in my nose and wanted to make the surgery as simple as possible. The precise surgery left me with no bruising or issues post op, I walked out as I walked in which was amazing. Dr Hannan was easy to communicate with whenever I had any questions post surgery and his team were always accommodating with followup appointments. 2 months post op I had my final check up and he was very happy with the results - and so am I! He has fixed my whistling nose and I definitely recommend him.

I cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Hannan! My experience prior and after my surgery was excellent. Alam clearly explained my procedure to me, and answered all of my questions to ensure I was completely comfortable; he even took the time outside of my appointments to answer questions I had which made me feel even more at ease. I am extremely happy with the results of my surgery, and cannot thank Mr. Hannan enough for this. He is very easy to communicate with, understanding, kind, personable and attentive to the patient's needs. I truly believe I would not have had this same experience with any other doctor, and I would recommend Mr. Hannan to all. Thank you again for making this a seamless experience for me and for the great work you have done!

I've had a superb experience with Mr Hannan. When I first saw him I'd been having problems with my ears and nose that were causing significant discomfort and were impacting my ability to concentrate at work. He was hugely reassuring; making me feel at ease while he undertook his diagnosis and giving me comfort that my symptoms could be resolved. I appreciated the way Mr Hannan took time to explain what he was doing, what he had observed, and what he thought the solution would be. He also gave me plenty of time to ask questions, and make sure I understood the diagnosis and treatment. When I returned for a follow-up, my symptoms had significantly improved but had not completely abated. I once again felt very reassured by Mr Hannan, and he was able to give me a repeat prescription to help me manage any ongoing symptoms.

Would highly recommend Mr Alam Hannan who recently operated on our five year old daughter. We obviously didn’t want her to have surgery but we were confident she was in good hands. Mr Hannan talked us through what was going to happen and came to see us before and after the procedure.We felt at ease and confident on the day. Our daughters procedure went very well and her recovery was amazing,wish we had done it sooner and we can only attribute her positive experience to Mr Hannan. Would definitely go back if we ever need any ENT treatment in the future.

I had such a great experience with Mr Hannan. I chose him based on his extensive experience and the second I started speaking to him, I trusted him. He was thorough in explaining the procedure to me and the recovery period around what I should expect. I had my tonsils out, and on the day of the procudure he spoke through eveything with me, I never thought he was trying to rush me and answered all of my questions. In the follow up consultation he was very happy with my progress and took the time talking me through some other ENT issues I've had. I would entirely recommend Mr Hannan.

I saw Alam this year at the Platinum Medical Centre (Wellington Hospital) regarding a deviated septum and sinus problems that I had experienced for many years. Alam was professional and polite during all our consultations and made me feel very comfortable. I received my consultation notes very promptly and was always kept up to date. Following scans and tests, I eventually had surgery to correct my deviated septum (rhinoseptoplasty), alongside Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) at the Royal Free Hospital (private ward). On the day, Alam made me feel at ease and discussed the surgery with me beforehand. Post surgery, he was very helpful and advised me as to what to do in order to ensure the healing process was as effective as possible. I have seen Alam twice since my surgery, and both times he has taken a genuine interest in my recovery. I would definitely recommend Alam for both his professionalism and service.

Mr Hannan listened and was very interested in SOLVING the issue. He also took into consideration that I'd seen others, and he identified something very unusual that they, in all good intentions, missed. At no time did I feel like he was simply reading off an if-then diagnostic web site, he drove the investigation, and brought resources to bear as necessary. In particular, I appreciated that he didn't get an attitude (like some) when he found me to be an active patient, and during the treatment phase, did a little reasonable research on my own. Very welcome and appreciated.
