    I have been suffering with blocked ears since the start of the Covid pandemic and my GP was not very helpful. I had a private consultation with Mr Jayaraj who cleared the problem in 20 minutes. He was very professional and I would certainly recommend him.

    Really pleased with the result of my nose & sinus surgery. I can breathe properly for the first time in years and my nose is finally straight. Dr Jayaraj was excellent, explained everything and was so patient with me.

    After almost 20 years of sinus and breathing problems I went ahead and booked an appoinment with Mr Jayaraj for a check up. I have had 2 previous operations with different doctors roughly 10 years ago. To my disappointment these were both unsuccessful and included my Tonsils being removed and cartilage being removed from the front of my nose. After looking at the inside of my nose Mr Jayaraj explained thoroughly my bent septum issue and also insisted I have an allergy test. It was shocking to realise that an allergy test had never been mentioned before considering my symptoms. The results came back and I was allergic to dust-mites quite severly. This plus my bent septum concluded why I had always had a problem breathing and restricted airflow through my nasal passage. I went ahead and had a septum reconstruction with Mr Jayaraj and I can honestly say it has been life changing. From the moment I woke up from the operation I could tell airflow was improved, even with the fresh stitches and bandages on. It took around 2 weeks to heal enough for me to go back to work and I could not believe the difference. I could breathe freely through both nostrils and my mucus build up which would previously effect my talking was gone. Smell and taste has improved and when I exercise I find breathing is easier. Prior my ears would pop during intense exercise and this no longer seems to happen. I fully recommend Mr Jayaraj to anybody with similar problems as what I went through, if only I had scheduled an appointment with him 10 years I would of had this issue resolved a long time ago. Thank you! All the best

    Samuel Jayaraj treated my nasal polyps by surgery removal. It appears that my sense of smell and taste has returned. I found Samuel to be friendly, informative and very willing to answer questions. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending him.

    I was referred to Mr Jayaraj after having persistent and copious nosebleeds. He found I had a deviated septum and other problems with my nasal plumbing. After discussing the options over several visits, I opted for surgery. Mr Jayaraj gave me clear advice and I found him to be really friendly and approachable. Best of all, he did a great job on my septum and the nosebleeds have ceased. I'm also enjoying easier breathing and a better sense of smell. I'm very happy with the results and with my experience with Mr Jayaraj

    My consultation with Mr. Samuel Jayaraj was extremely helpful. Not only he was able to put my mind at rest, but also explaining how I could help myself in the recovery of a perforated ear drum. His bedside manner is excellent, and care. I would recommend him to anyone needing ENT treatment.

    Doctor Sam Jayaraj treated my 3 year old boy for his tonsils, adanoids and grommets. He did a fantastic job and could tell there was something wrong with him as soon as we walked into his clinic. The procedure went smoothly and the after care was fantastic and he came to visit my little boy. I would recommend him to anyone who need ENT treatment

    I would highly recommend this doctor. Mr Jayaraj performed an adenotonsillectomy on my extremely nervous nine year old daughter and really put her at ease with his calm and caring manner. The operation was a huge success, and she was eating and drinking just an hour after surgery, with very little discomfort at all during the following weeks.

    Mr Jayaraj is hands down the best doctor I've ever experienced. I had a Septoplasty operation because I couldn't breathe through my nose, and it has changed my life for the better. He is very personable, charismatic and explains clearly the whole process of the treatment/operation. You can tell he is an expert in his field and I felt very comfortable undergoing surgery by him. Even all the Nurses and other hospital staff said how they really liked him when I said the Doctor I was seeing. Thank you for all your help!

    I have recently been treated by Doctor Samuel Jayaraj, both privately and by the NHS. I cannot recommend more highly the way I was cared for by him. I`ve had an endoscopic sinus surgery and I`ve recovered very well and rapidly. He is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated.

    Very kind, calm and professional. Sam explained everything thoroughly at every stage of my consultation and operation, taking time to answer all my questions. His confident and friendly, helpful manner put me at ease and I felt very confident in his abilities - he did a great job removing a cyst from my tonsil. Would definitely recommend him. Thank you!
