    I would highly recommend Mr Ram Moorthy. Ram is an incredibly supportive, highly informative, knowledgeable and professional ENT Consultant. He did an outstanding job to perform a hemithyroidectomy on me which I have recovered well from and everything went very smoothly. I felt totally reassured and in very safe hands right from the start, which then helped any initial nerves I had as I hadn't ever had any form of surgery before or been under general anaesthetic. Ram took the time to also properly check on me after my surgery and has excellent interpersonal and communication skills as throughout the entire process he always took the time to properly explain each step of the way to me in a friendly, clear, concise and simple manner - which really helped as sometimes medical information can be hard to take in and understand all in one go. Overall he was simply fantastic and is so highly skilled and knowledgable in his medical discipline. I am very pleased with my medical care, it was excellent. Thank you Ram for your wonderful care and also thank you to Rams' secretary Becci- for your friendly, fast and highly efficient support too.

    I have been consulting with Mr Moorthy now for over a year. He initially diagnosed an issue with my Thyroid and then operated and partially removed the thyroid. During my consultations he was professional and I have found it easy to communicate with him. Even though at times I feel a bit embarrassed to ask certain questions he will always try to explain in layman's terms which is greatly appreciated

    I had already seen Mr Moorthy a couple of years ago with a different issue and had no hesitation in going back on this occasion. He always listens and then after carrying out an examination describes the solutions in detail. I have no hesitation in recommending him to you.
