    Mr Irfan is one of the most charismatic medical professionals I have come across. I was instantly put at ease with his easygoing, reassuring and personable manner. Not only that, his diagnosis avoided me having a general anaesthetic and a long winded procedure via the NHS - I believe this was due to Mr Irfan’s wealth of experience and the fact that he did a much more thorough examination in the first place. I would not hesitate to visit Mr Irfan again with any health issues.

    The doctor listened patiently and respectfully to my explanation of my condition, proceeded to examine and explain to me clearly his diagnosis and then to treatment to unblock my ears. Very much felt I was treated as a person not an appointment. Thank you.

    Mr Syed looked after my mother when she was suffering from dizziness and vertigo. He was professional, calming and correctly diagnosed my mothers condition. He performed the treatment and put together a detailed recovery plan for her. I'm happy to report she made a full recovery and we're grateful for Mr Syed's excellent care.

    I have always had great feedback from the rhinology (nose and sinus) patients that I have sent to Mr Syed. He is a very skillful surgeon and I am aware of excellent results from patients that he has seen. He has taught me a lot about complex rhinology pathology through his comprehensive letters. I would recommend him unreservedly.
