“Following a couple of severe nose bleeds - and I mean biblical proportions - my father (88 years old and unfortunately now on his own) was finally referred to Miss Little. Her expertise in this area is second to none and her initial treatment and follow ups solved the problem (where others had unfortunately not succeeded). Her approach is one of extraordinary professionalism but done so in an extremely pleasant manner. We feel very fortunate indeed to have been under her care. I would have no hesitation in recommending her. Truly brilliant. (And sorry if this is too complimentary but it is well deserved!)“

    From the initial consultation to follow up appoingments, Miss Little has been incredible. Any questions I had were always answered, alll steps of the process were thouroughly explained, I felt as if I was in safe hands from the beginning. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my srugery and I am very greatful to Miss Little for that. As well as being an extremely skilled professional she is also very kind and reassuring.

    I was slightly nervous about having this procedure (septoplasty) done for a second time in a year, but after the first consultation with Miss Little my worries but put to rest and I was very confident that this time round I would see the intended benefits. Miss Little is very friendly and reassuring and her attention to detail when explaining scan results and the procedure process was great. The morning after my procedure I had a phone call from Miss Little to check how I was doing and to let me know that the procedure went well, I also received a second phone call after a week. I found that at any stage throughout my recovery, Miss Little was available for any advise on how to aid recovery or to answer any concerns I may have had. It has now been around 6 weeks since and I am already really happy with the results and look forward to continued improvements with my breathing. **I would highly recommend Miss Little to anybody reading this.**

    When Dr S Little offered to take me under her care I was so happy and relieved, as she gave me such confidence and hope for the future. From the first consultation right up until till the removal of my nose stitches Dr S Little was there, with her professional and extensive knowledge along with great empathy, kindness and understanding of my nose problems which included breathing difficulties. I'm so happy to say that I can now breath freely as never before and my nose reconstruction was a success.

    Miss Little was very welcoming and made sure that all my questions and concerns were answered during the initial consultation. On the day of the surgery Miss Little made a point of popping in whilst I was in recovery to tell me how things went, and gave me comfort that all went well. I can't thank Miss Little enough for the improvement in the quality of my breathing and especially sleeping, since the procedure. Thank you.

    Sinus Surgery
    I recently had sinus surgery under Miss Little. She was kind and empathetic throughout and helped to put my mind at ease. She explained everything clearly and was honest of what she thought. Following the surgery she has requested followups to ensure that my recovery was straightforward. I would recommend Miss Little to anyone who needs sinus surgery.

    Septoplasty Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)
    After having a number of consultations with other surgeons for revision rhinoplasty, I approached Miss Little and immediately felt like she understood the issues I had and felt like she had the capabilities to perform the surgery well. Miss Little has a very calm and confident demeanor which helped to put me at ease and make my decison to go ahead with the surgery. We had 2 consultations together and she fully explained the whole procedure, including the risks and expected outcomes of the surgery. I went in for surgery on a Friday morning where Miss Little was waiting to discuss any last minute questions I had prior to the surgery. Again, her confidence and calming nature really helped to ease any nerves I had. After the surgery she visited again to see how I was doing and even checked on me again on the Saturday morning prior to my discharge. I am now 4 weeks post op and am healing well and given that it was a very complex surgery, at this point am very happy with the results. All in all my experience with Miss Little has been great. I only wish I had gone to her in the first place so I could have avoided the need to have revision surgery. For anyone looking to get any type of rhinoplasty I highly recommend Miss Little.

    Miss Little treated an ear infection in my right ear and wax build up in both ears by removing the excess wax. The treatment was effective, quick and delivered at the time of the appointment. Throughout Miss Little was clear in her communication, thorough in exploring the effects on my hearing and hugely reassuring. The treatment has had excellent results and I cannot fault the service.

    Dr Little saw our 6 year old child who had a prolonged ear infection. She was always very professional and caring towards our daughter, and even responded to our out of hours texts, including over the Xmas period while she was on holiday. We can't thank her enough.
