    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.
