    I haven’t seen many professional Specialist doctors as far as I’m concerned he was very knowledgeable very balanced in his opinion guided me through what’s sleep apnoea is and how it manifests And what needs to be done as in deit and using the sleep apnoea machine properly getting the right Face fittings for the machine I have. Possibilities of surgery its success rate and why surgery in some case. So my course of action now is to return to the NHS get the advice how to use the machine properly and see if we can get around the problem of the obstructive part oh my issues this is causing me to choke. When using the machine. I don’t really know what to say he was doing his job and I think he done very good job I was there with my very dear friend who is another professional in her field and she took notes and we have now got information I can use to go forward in my treatment thank you

    Dr Surda is highly professional and has an efficient but warm style. He frequently cites data and research in his advice and opinions and so is able to quantitatively support his conclusions. As a patient this is very reassuring and further adds to Dr Surda’s overall impression of professionalism. I will actively recommend him to family and friends as the best ENT specialist I have encountered.
