    I was thoroughly impressed with Mr Ghosh experience, knowledge and care about the procedure. He ensured all my questions were answered and most importantly resolved all of my breathing problems through my nose. Ultimately my nose is 100% better now than before and I would recommend Mr Ghosh to anyone who is struggling breathing through their nose or like me broke it in early childhood and it had grown in all sorts of directions, the results are incredible and I now have the perfect nose!
