    Mr Nico Jonas was so attentive and kind throughout the process, and immediately put us at ease with his expert knowledge in the field of Paediatric ENT issues. Elena actually enjoyed all of the tests at the initial consultation (quite miraculous for a 3 year old), which I am sure was due to Mr Jonas’ kind and engaging manner. The surgery itself went perfectly and her recovery has been excellent. All our questions and concerns were answered by Mr Jonas and we felt confident throughout the proceedings.

    Mr Jonas was highly effective at interacting with my son - his tone of voice was gentle and reassuring; he was instantly able to respond, in a genuinely compassionate manner, when my son was upset when we were exploring the actual medical issue. From the initial consultation, through surgery, to the follow up check up, we have been totally happy with the care provided by Mr Jonas.

    I cannot thank Mr Jonas enough. Willow had been extremely nervous prior to the operation but she was made to feel really at ease on the day and everything was explained really well to us both. Big thank you to our lovely nurse Allison on the day who was also fabulous. Thank you very much for everything and I’m so pleased she is no longer sniffing.

    We are thrilled with the results of our sons tonsillectomy. Mr. Jonas was extremely knowledgeable, while showing such compassion for our son. This surgery was very needed for our son and he was able to prioritize his surgery to get him scheduled quickly. We could not be happier with the results.

    Mr Jonas absolutely saved my ear. I was in severe pain in my ear when I came to see him; I had already been to my GP twice and my ear had got worse and not better. He diagnosed my problem immediately and was very gentle when dealing with me. He reassured me the whole time but did exactly what was necessary to make me better. He went above and beyond and fit me in before his clinic to see me a second time and never made me feel silly or pathetic. I’m so glad to be on the other side of this infection and I’m so grateful to Mr Jonas for all the time, care, efficiency and kindness in dealing with me...who knows where I would’ve been if I hadn’t seen him!

    From first contact, Mr Jonas and his team have been remarkably helpful, I would like to mention in particular, his wonderfully helpful and attentive personal secretary Mari. Mr Jonas is very knowledgeable in his field and helped us understand our sons symptoms. It was really lovely that Mr Jonas took the time to visit our son on the ward after surgery, to see how recovery was going and answer any questions we had.

    Really pleased with the level of care and attention provided by Mr Jonas. My 14-year-old daughter was made to feel comfortable, informed and at ease before, during and after her surgical procedure. I would happily recommend Mr Jonas to others seeking an ENT surgeon. I would also add that the team at The Portland Hospital who supported Mr Jonas were fantastic too.

    Couldn’t be happier with the service received from Dr Jonas and his lovely assistant Mari. My son’s behaviour and speech has improved dramatically post his Tonsillectomy given he had bad sleep apnea and I’m delighted we got it done. His recovery was quick and the whole process went so smoothly. Thankyou Dr Jonas and Mari for everything
