    He really explained all my problems very well and also discovered that my aortic valve was in very bad condition, which was fantastic as he reviewed my scan for my lungs. This led to me having a Tavi procedure which was a bonus !!!!

    Given that I was on my own and suffering from long Covid ( before it was a known thing) he gave me confidence and explained what was happening - I have since recommended him to 2 friends.

    Mike and I have worked alongside eachother at Royal Free Hospital and in private practice for many years, providing a united approach to conditions that traverse the upper and lower airway, particularly chronic cough. As such, Mike is naturally one of my go-to-guys for any ENT patient of mine that needs an expert respiratory opinion ... and he always delivers!
