“My 3 year old son had adenotonsilectomy under the care of Mr Lakhani in the Portland Hospital. Altogether was a great adventure in the life of my son and now he is not scared of hospitals and doctors. Mr Raj Lakhani is very good in communication with children. He even persuaded my son to open his mouth and show it to him (which you understand is already a big achievement if we are talking about 3 yo). I was also very pleased to get all the explanations and advice I was looking for, and all the comfort that was much needed in this stressful time. And the treatment helped and changed our life. Cannot recommend Mr Raj Lakhani enough.“

    I have now had 3 separate consultations with Mr Lakhani regarding my blocked ears, 1 virtual and 2 in person. On all occasions Raj has been kind, courteous and professional. He has taken time to explain his thoughts, diagnoses and treatments and has ensured that I remained comfortable and informed throughout. He has an excellent bedside manner and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

    Mr Lakhani is such an attentive, personable and quietly reassuring consultant. He has a warm, friendly, welcoming and respectful manner and really listens to what one has to say. I consulted him on a particular medical matter, which he reassured me I didn't have and then helped sort out an unresolved medical issue I'd suffered with for many years. I'm really grateful to him for his expertise and professionalism. Mr Lakhani's PA, Julia, is equally friendly, helpful, approachable and efficient.

    I was delighted that AXA PPP recommended Mr Raj Lakhani as an ENT consultant for my breathing problems. After hearing my concerns, he ran a few tests and explained my predicament very clearly and precisely. He took the time to explain in layman terms also noting that he listens and hears your concerns and gives just and viable responses. I felt very reassured after my initial consultation. A few weeks later, post my operation and follow up appointment I am delighted with the result. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr Lakhani. One very happy patient - 10 stars if that's possible!

    My son was complaining from severe pain in his ears and Dr. Lakhani was very kind to offer me a same day appointment after his clinic. When we saw him in the clinic he was very welcoming and supporting. The medicine prescribed was also very effective.

    Mr Lakhani performed a manipulation on our son‘s broken nose. We are so grateful to Mr Lakhani for quick response at very short notice. He managed to straighten the nose without major operation. Great and sufficient work.
