Mr Neil Donnelly has a very professional and personable manner, putting the patient at ease, taking time to discuss the ear problem with the patient before beginning treatment. On the basis of the treatment I have received, I have no hesitation in recommending him as an ENT Consultant.

At my first consultantstion Dr Donnelly was very sympathetic to my hearing loss. He carried out a thorough examination, and straight away discussed my options with me. He was understanding and considerate and we discussed at length treatments and away forward. Following this appointment I felt a great sense of relief and I moved on with further hearing tests and appointments to prepare for the surgery. The surgery it’s self went well and I was at ease to meet with Dr Donnelly prior to the Op. We talked through the surgery and the recovery period. He was very reassuring again I felt very confident. Meeting three weeks after surgery Dr Donnerlly was very thorough in his examination and I was amazed that I could actually hear almost instantly. I’m truly greatful to Dr Donnelly. I can’t believe after thirteen years I am able to hear again, Dr Donnelly’s professionalism, advice and kindness will stand me in good stead to repeat the procedure in my left ear in the future.

To say that any health investigation can be a pleasure sounds like a contradiction of terms but in this case it was true! Mr Donnelly’s pleasant manner, clear explanations and the high tec gear take all the stress out of what could be a very stressful time. The Cambridge Lea Hospital is also a very pleasant environment .
