    My son had developed a chronic ear infection and Professor Kotecha was able to see and treat him within a short time frame. Our experience is one of a highly skilled, professional, diligent doctor but who also took the time to explain the procedure and follow up treatment as well as being kind and caring to my son’s wellbeing. I wouldn’t hesitate to book further consultations and recommend to others.

    Professor Kotecha was an absolutely wonderful person to have invesigating and treating the throat issues I had been experiencing. He made me feel completely comfortable and went the extra mile when I explained I suffer with a lot of health anxiety. He even deleted the camera footage of my throat in front of me to show me that it wasn’t needed! This was hugely comforting as some who suffers with anxiety in confirming to me nothing was wrong and nothing was being kept from me. He explained everything in detail and in ley mans terms to me to ensure I understood what he meant.

    Mr Bhik Kotecha is an excellent all round ENT surgeon who also really cares about his patients and always does his best and what is right. He is the top UK surgeon and national expert for the management of OSA (obstructive sleep apnoea). He is also a great communicator and helps patients understand their ENT problem and the various treatment options available. He is my first port of call for an expert ENT opinion and advice. Absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Bhik.
