    We went to see Professor Bruce as my 4 year old Son had sleep apnea that was affecting him daily. He was tired all the time, falling asleep in school. We booked a consultation with Professor Bruce. He was lovely with my son. He's very personable, professional and you cannot help but feel you are in safe hands. We booked to get his tonsils and adenoids removed in Spire Manchester as a day patient. Professor Bruce came to see me prior to the operation to go through everything and his words 'I will take good care of him' meant a lot. The surgery went well and he was up eating about an hour later. I cannot fault the whole team, they were fantastic. With the covid restrictions I had to go in alone and the care given both to my son and myself was amazing. Special mention to Rachel, Abu & Aaliyah to whom nothing was too much trouble and they did everything with kindness and a smile. As a parent this is priceless. 2 weeks on we have a different boy, energetic and getting a full night sleep. The difference is amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend Professor Bruce and his team.

    Amazing Doctor! Professor Bruce was very informative and really helped put me at ease. He was both quick and efficient in doing the tongue tie procedure and calm back to check on Teddy after feeding him. I couldn’t be happier with the service received today. The nurse on hand was also amazing unfortunately I have forgotten her name but she was wonderful kept coming to check on us and bring a drink I felt very comfortable with her she held Teddy when he had the procedure as she could tell I felt uneasy about it. Thank you both so much! X

    Professor Bruce was a delight to deal with! He is very friendly, patient and put me at ease. He kept me informed at every step of the way and was happy to answer any questions. He took me seriously, made me feel listened to and the appointments never felt rushed. He is obviously an expert in his field and also understood how my ENT problems may affect other areas of my overall health and wellbeing.

    My son Reggie recently had his tonsils and adenoids removed due to OSA by Professor Bruce. As a mother, I honestly could not have asked for any more throughout the whole experience. I was well informed and extremely confident that my son was in the best hands! Even with covid restrictions, resulting in us having some virtual consultations, I never felt like it restricted us in terms of what the problem was and how it could be "fixed". Professor Bruce was so patient when he met Reggie and examined him, and explained to me what the procedure would be and exactly how it would be done, including all risks and put my mind as ease completely. On the day, Professor Bruce came to see us before the surgery and again went through and answered any questions, what to expect and after care. We saw him again for a post op check up, again, so much patience with Reggie and was happy with everything and I am so pleased with the overall experience from start to finish. Reggie even slept through the night last night and i have noticed so many changes in him already, so THANKYOU for changing his life!
