    Professor Kotecha was an absolutely wonderful person to have invesigating and treating the throat issues I had been experiencing. He made me feel completely comfortable and went the extra mile when I explained I suffer with a lot of health anxiety. He even deleted the camera footage of my throat in front of me to show me that it wasn’t needed! This was hugely comforting as some who suffers with anxiety in confirming to me nothing was wrong and nothing was being kept from me. He explained everything in detail and in ley mans terms to me to ensure I understood what he meant.

    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

    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.
