    From my first meeting with Mr Jacob he put me at ease as I was very anxious about my illness. He explained what the issues were in layman’s terms and together me made a decision to go ahead with the operation. I felt I was in good hands. On the day of operation he met me before and after the operation to see how I was doing. Few days after my operation I was worried about the incision and he quickly made time the same day for me to see him. I cannot praise him enough for his empathy and professionalism.

    My 5 year old daughter had an ongoing ear infection which 3 doctors were not able to sort out. Mr Jacob found the problem on the first meeting, and we had two follow up meetings until my daughter was completely healed. He was kind, which put my daughter at ease, and extremely professional.

    Patient seen for:
    Tonsillectomy Paediatric Ear, Nose & Throat Surgery Tonsillitis
    My 5 year old son had been having recurrent tonsillitis - every 3 weeks- for the past year. I had been back and forth from hospitals and GP to sort this out since 2017 when the tonsillitis was every 3 months, and no one wanted to help. By the time I met Mr Jacob he said this is not right or fair onto my son so was offered the tonsillectomy immediately. He explained everything I needed to know, from where the operation could take place to all the risks involved, and when he had finished he asked if I or my son needed to ask any more questions. There was a slight issue in timing for my sons operation and with my concern Mr Jacob called me straight away to explain everything in detail as to why he could have it done still - just with a slightly higher risk. The morning of the operation came and Mr Jacob made sure both I and my son were happy and comfortable to proceed. The operation went very well and Mr Jacob again came to see me and my son to see how we both were. I could not recommend Mr Jacob highly enough. He has been an amazing consultant for the needs of my son. Thank you again for everything.
