A thoroughly charming and professional consultant surgeon who made both me and my wife feel at ease during the initial appointment to discuss my long term ear blockage. The clearance of dried film from my ear drums using micro suction at the time of this first consultation gave me 'longed for' relief. Thereafter, a one month course of nasal drops relieved symptoms further and during our follow up consultation by phone I was able to confirm to Mr Donnelly that my hearing had further improved and that my ears no longer felt blocked. He in turn was happy with progress made and saw no reason to continue with further treatment at this stage.

Very thorough in explaining the condition and the steps involved in the actual treatment. He does appreciate the feeling around regaining the efficacy of one of the primary senses, and took all the effort to elaborate on the positive effect the surgery would have. Absolutely fabulous professional, highly recommended!!

Mr Donnelly diagnosed Cholesteatoma upon examination of my left ear. He took the time to explain both diagnosis and the treatment very clearly. His profound knowledge of this condition put my mind at rest and enabled me to feel confident in him as a surgeon. At the time of surgery, I was found to have a more involved Cholesteatomea than the scan suggested and my tympanic membrane and hearing were reconstructed. One year on, I am happy to say that all is very well and there is no evidence of the disease. I would highly recommend Mr Donnelly.

Overall a thoroughly professional experience. Mr Donnelly went out of his way to make both me and my wife feel at ease when discussing my condition and the proposed remedy. My hearing faculty checks and ensuing treatment provided at the time of consultation gave much longed for relief in overcoming what had been a period of prolonged ear/hearing discomfort. To date the ongoing medication prescribed is maintaining the improvement which is to be reviewed at a follow-up appointment.
