    Adult Ear, Nose & Throat Surgery
    I had a seriously muffled ear possibly due to misuse of cotton buds. Before coming to see the ENT specialist I have been to the GP once and A&E twice, only been given antibiotics drops and pills but nothing really helped for nearly 20 days. Dr Joshi instantly identified that the key issue wasn't the infection but the accumulation of wax. He performed microsuction, which immediately improved my hearing. Thanks very much indeed!

    Mr Joshi is very thorough, kind and professional, I was lucky enough to get a cancellation with him and can highly recommend. Very good with nervous patients. He was so delicate with my septoplasty that I had no swelling, or bruising and didn't need any painkillers. My breathing is now much improved, thank you so much!

    Tonsillectomy
    Thank you Dr Joshi and team of secretaries for looking after me before, during and after my tonsillectomy. I had been meaning to have this surgery for many years but kept putting it off due to fear. I finally plucked up the courage and was put in touch with Dr Joshi. I am so grateful it was Dr Joshi I saw. He is professional, calm and friendly, I honestly felt very calm going forward with this procedure. I had no complications during the procedure and considered myself lucky as I’ve read some awful horror stories, but actually I thank my amazing surgeon! To any one who is reading this and needing a tonsillectomy I can promise you are in the safest hands. I have heard it’s not very common for surgeons to visit you after surgery but Dr Joshi popped in and told me everything went well. Dr Joshi has an amazing team of friendly secretaries who speak to you like you are a friend. I really liked how bubbly and also calm they were! So efficient and easy to get in touch with. Thank you Dr Joshi, Jackie, Clare and all the other secretaries that I’ve had correspondence with. You are a flawless and wonderful team and I am so thankful I had this experience with you all.
