    Professor Kotecha has been amazing treating myself and my daughter for different things. I had a lymph node investigated by him in 2018/2019. Thankfully it turned out to be nothing but none the less his care was brilliant. I also recently used him for my Daughter who is 5. He was excellent with her and made her feel comfortable and engaged with her. Thank you again and will not hesitate to contact you in the future if needed. Kind regards

    Through out my consultation, my follow up, my op and my aftercare Professor Kotecha made me feel calm and hopeful about resolving my medical issue. He explained everything so well and was very friendly. I am a nervous 21 year old who had to have my op and stay at hospital alone due to covid but The Professor made sure I felt comfortable, informed and updated at all times. I couldn't thank him enough for all hes done and the sweet manner he dealt with me

    Professor Bhik Kotecha was very helpful and informative. Over the past two years we have been waiting for numerous appointments to get clarity on what is wrong with our daughter‘s ear. It seems like we weren’t getting anywhere so we decided to go private. Speaking with Professor Bhik Kotecha has been the most beneficial and best decision we have made. He informed us on what the issue was and what needs to happen next, which has giving us a peace of mind. He has referred us almost immediately to see a specialist. We will be recommending him and the team at Nuffield Hospital.

    I found this consultant by chance as Bupa had recommended three that were not local to me. Very pleased with the offer of an appointment very quickly. I knew straight away I was in good hands and that he was a specialist in his field. I had waited months to see someone on NHS due to the pandemic but having the chance to be seen at a time and place to suit me was great. I would not hesitate in recommending prof Kotecha to anyone I know he was understanding and considerate throughout the appointment.

    I have had months of uncertainty surrounding my symptoms, with trips to my local GP and also the A&E department at my local hospital. However following a single consultation with Professor Kotecha I have left with a far greater understanding of why I am having my symptoms and also planned the next steps in further diagnosing the cause. Overall I have received a great service.

    Mr Bhik Kotecha is an excellent all round ENT surgeon who also really cares about his patients and always does his best and what is right. He is the top UK surgeon and national expert for the management of OSA (obstructive sleep apnoea). He is also a great communicator and helps patients understand their ENT problem and the various treatment options available. He is my first port of call for an expert ENT opinion and advice. Absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Bhik.
