I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Clifton. Highly professional, caring and diligent he made my young son feel at ease and involved during the whole Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy process. Delighted that we chose him as our sons surgeon.

I have been a patient of Mr Clifton’s for 4-5 years following many sinus issues. Mr Clifton has also carried our two surgeries on my sinuses. He has been an exceptional consultant and surgeon and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has always been very thorough in his diagnosis and treatment of my sinuses and I am now considerably more comfortable breathing and with very few sinusitis episodes.

I saw Mr Clifton after having some discomfort and the feeling of something stuck in my throat after swallowing a small piece of dry ice from a cocktail on holiday. He was extremely reassuring and kind. Mr Clifton arranged a procedure with his colleague and a referral to a gastro enterologist all in record time as he knew I was also suffering with anxiety about what was going on. Highly recommended!

I have seen Mr Clifton several times with both of my children who were suffering with ear problems. Mr Clifton immediately made my children feel very at ease and explained everything to me in a detailed, yet easy to understand, manner. We had seen several other doctors who are unable to help with the ear problems that we were experiencing, however it was Mr Clifton who found the root of the problem and now both children are symptom-free. The after-care was superb and I felt I could contact Mr Clifton with any queries without hesitation. I would highly recommend Mr Clifton.

Mr Clifton has seen both of my children - both had ear issues that other doctors were unable to help with. He was fantastic with the children and made them feel very at ease whilst explaining everything to me in easy to understand terms! He was very professional; the appointments felt thorough and we came away with much needed answers. Aftercare was great. I cannot recommend Mr Clifton more highly.
