    Mr Vik Veer walked in with a warm welcome and smiling eyes. ( wearing mask so couldn’t see smile) isn’t it strange how we read people’s eyes now instead of their smiles. Mr Veer is an exceptional consultant very knowledgeable and caring and understanding. He takes his time to explain absolutely everything. He is so friendly and kind and has a lovely nature and great sense of humour that puts you at ease within seconds, which is so refreshing. It is hard and rare to find a Dr that has it all. One that you feel so relaxed with, and that has time to listen to you, Mr Veer is a book of knowledge and expertise in ENT. He is patient, kind, courteous, and very respectful of my concerns. Mr Vik Veer carried out a nasal endoscopy procedure and inserted a very narrow tube with a camera at the end. I will be truthful and say when l saw that camera coming towards me l was a little anxious, . l needn’t have been. I had expected it to be very uncomfortable as a previous experience at my local hospital a few years back l had the same procedure unsuccessfully and the Consultant was unable to get the camera to go through. I can honestly say what a completely different experience it was having this procedure carried out by Mr Veer. His expertise was beyond my expectations and it was not at all as unpleasant as l had expected. It was so nice to come out of the consultation thinking I had got everything across that I wanted to say as usually I come home and think l forgot to mention this I wish I’d said that or I wish I’d asked that…… But more importantly know that l am in extremely safe hands. THANK YOU MR VIK VEER ! I look forward to my follow up.
