    Patient seen for:
    After suffering for 23 years with tonsillitis as I got older the infections got more common and worse. I was referred to Dr Bajaj for a tonsillectomy and my life is completely changed for the better now. He explained in detail the benefits and the risk and made sure I was completely comfortable and confident before the operation date. On the day itself he visited me in the room beforehand to check everything was all ok and if I had any questions, for someone that is so terrified at hospitals he made me feel safe and at ease. I had mild pain after the operation which was nothing compared to the infections i have had throughout the years. I honestly cannot thank dr enough for changing my life forever. I am extremely grateful and can now live a normal healthy life with no illness! Thank you so much!

    I will very highly recommend Prof. Yogesh Bajaj. He is not only a very kind colleague but also a very capable paediatric ENT surgeon. I have greatest regards for him both as a colleague and also as someone who looked after my family member (little boy). He has very high work ethics and is excellent with patients especially children. I am sure his calming and pleasant manner will settle the most challenging and anxious child.
